From "Eating Wheaton," November 2005

These cigar-shaped yucca fritters filled with spicy ground beef are a specialty at the Brazilian Market, a cafe/grocery/hangout with a handful of tables and orderly shelves of South American goods, from yerba maté, the "cure-all" herbal elixir, to bicolor hair dye. Carimanolas are the nibble everyone will want at least two of, but I also can't resist the tartlets of chicken and green olives or the classic Brazilian cheese buns. The house banana- passionfruit frappé or cafe con leche, espresso-strength coffee with steamed hot milk, are the drinks of choice. And if you show up in the late afternoon or early evening, flaky empanadas will be your reward.
