“About Us”

Samba Brazilian Cuisine is a catering company with a new concept of Brazilian street food. Our main goal is to provide excellent service and an extraordinary experience with our food.

Samba’s environment is full of fun, positive energy, comforting food and amazing people.
We want to introduce and expand the quality of Brazilian popular gastronomy in San Diego area.

Samba offers different kinds of Brazilian food, and our specialty is the delicious “Pastel”, which is a sort of a super big Empanada. But, Pastel has a much thinner, very crispy and crunchy dough, and stuffed with many fillings such as ground beef & green olives or chicken and cream cheese, then deep fried in vegetable oil for only few seconds.

We also serve the purest Acai Bowls in town, which are simply topped with granola, bananas, strawberry, coconut & honey. Our Acai Bowls gives its audience a real sense of how we enjoy Acai in Brazil… It is the real thing 🙂

We make different kinds of finger foods. For example, we have our delicious Coxinha (coh-shee-nia), which the is a made of potato dough, stuffed with chicken & cream cheese, or you can order one of our different flavors.

Samba’s variety continues with other goods, for example: “Pão de Queijo” (Cheese Bread), which is probably one of the best options for a quick taste of Brazilian food. Pao de Queijo is gluten-free, made with tapioca flour, and it goes really well with a cup of Acai Smoothie.

We are proud to announce that we will be the pioneers here in San Diego selling TAPIOCA Crepes.
TAPIOCA will be the next BIG THING when it comes to diet/gastronomy. Tapioca is gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free, and you can customize its flavor, which can be sweet or savory. You should try Tapioca, its amazingly good.

We have stands at different farmer’s markets in San Diego, and we will continue to operate on Sundays at the Hillcrest farmers market. Also, we operate our stand once a week at two of the biggest universities in the country, UCSD, and SDSU.

To all of you who support us weekly in our daily markets by attending or by having our food, you make our day, Obrigado (thank you in Portuguese)!!
