Say olá to winter with a taste of Brazil! 

Join the Somerville Arts Council for an inaugural pop-up lunch at Union Kitchen featuring Brazilian street food cooked by Nibble Culinary Entrepreneur Robson Lemos. Come taste Bolinho de Bacalau, a delicious Brazilian fish cake found all over Brazil, especially in Rio, that draws its influence from Portugal. We’ll also be serving up Empadinha de Frango (Chicken Pies), and Kibe (pronounced Kee-Bee), a popular Middle eastern snack that reflects Brazil’s large Lebanese population. These three tasty snacks will be served up alongside a traditional salad made with kale and black eyed peas. This streetfood trifecta & salad are all available for a mere $7! Enjoy this exotic lunch opportunity before or after visiting the 28th annual Brick Bottom and Joy Street Open Studios (12-6pm, 11/21 & 11/22), where over 60 local artists will open their studios to the public.
