Ta Bom truck

Brazilian tapas in the neighborhood?  Sim, at Ta Bom (It's Good), the city's only Brazilian lonchera, typically moored late afternoons on Jefferson near McClintock.  Thus far, I've sampled--with great satisfaction--the Coxinha (a croquette like delicacy), the ground beef pastel, Salpicao (a veggie wrap with shredded carrot, jicama, olives, and more), a top sirloin taco, and the Kibe.  Kibe is a cross between a meatball and falafel: extremely fine ground beef, combined with onion, mint, and wheat bulghur.  Excelente!  Most items cost between 2 and 3 dollars, and there's Guarana on hand for a wash down.  (Also, the staff will give you pointers on your Portuguese.)
