Copo do Dio/
Nishi-Ogikubo:
Brazilian

€Data
Hidden among the
quiet streets north
of Nishi Ogikubo
station lies Copo do
Dia, a tiny cafe
that also functions
as an informal Bra-
zilian cultural
center. The space,
with its heavy wood-
en tables and simple
white walls, is
largely unadorned,
the vibe calm and
friendly.

Copo do Dia's pro-
prietors, the Itos,
share a passion for
Brazil, and their
enthusiasm is palpa-
ble. The cafe hosts
free Portuguese
language classes
every second and
fourth Tuesday eve-
ning and live musi-
cal performances
twice a month.

Brazilian CDs are
displayed on the
large metal shelf by
the register, and
visitors are welcome
to use the Walkman
on the counter to
have a listen at
their tables. (All
the CDs are avail-
able for purchase.)

The food menu,
though limited,
features a few items
that bear the stamp
of authenticity -
paprika-spiced lin-
guica (Portuguese
sausage, Y500),
flaky pastels (meat
pies, Y500), and
daily specials
(Y900-) that range
from traditional
feijoada (black
beans and rice) to
cumin-infused chick-
en and okra stew.

The drinks list is
full of fruit juices
and cocktails based
on cachaca, a rum-
like sugarcane liq-
uor. Try it straight
(Y600-), in a batida
with mint and fresh
pineapple juice
(Y730), or in Bra-
zil's national tip-
ple, the beloved
caipirinha.

Open hours: Monday-
Friday 3-11:30pm
(LO); Saturdays,
Sundays, holidays
noon-11:30pm (LO);
2nd, 4th Tuesdays 3-
7:30pm (LO).
