A cozy, family place to enjoy Brazilian food is Amor con Pedapos Bakery Padaria Brasileira. The restaurant is located in a strip shopping center at 5576 International Drive between Kirkman Road and Municipal Drive. With several Brazilian eateries nearby, Padaria Braileira is easy to miss on International Drive on your way to the Outlet stores closer to Universal Studios. The menu is in English and Portugese. Most visitors ordered the grilled chicken breast or grilled steak with onions. The entrees come with salad, beans, rice and fries. It is plenty for 2 people. We loved the food and the price, too –$8.90.
The restaurant also has a bakery and draws a regular stream of customers. Not to be missed, the Brazilian pastries and cakes. The chocolate strawberry cake was delicious, moist and mildly sweet, if you are watching your carbohydrates. Most individual bakery items are priced in the $2-$4 range. If you’re looking for a neat, clean restaurant bakery and a taste of Brazil on International Drive, Pedapos Bakery Padaria Brasileira is a great place to dine on a tourist’s budget. Service is self-serve at the counter where you order and pick up your food.
