It was a cold rainy Sunday in Bondi Junction. You wouldn't have known from the heat coming out of Kong's Jungle Lounge's Tiki Bar on the Brazilian Feijoada Lounge night.

Fifteen bucks entry gets you a plate of authentic Brazilian food, a drink and live Brazilian music. Samba Pagode was on offer the night I was there, pagode in Portuguese means a party with lots of food dance and celebration. The music is soulful, heartfelt and hypnotic. These guys were excellent, I felt as if I was in Rio de Janeiro listening to the hypnotic samba beats and playful lyrics.

The crowd was into it, Brazilians and non Brazilians alike doing that fun little dance called the samba. But don't worry if you can't samba, Brazilians are very welcoming and everyone should get out there and try to shake their thing.

If dancing isn't for you go for the delicious food and atmosphere. On offer was a delectable plate of garlic chicken, rice and farofa, which is a typical seasoning for Brazilian food. What is farofa you might ask? It's ground up manioc root and it is has an excellent dry smoky flavor. I am a big fan of farofa, although some may say it is an acquired taste.

The party starts at 2pm and goes until 12am. 5 is a great time to arrive, the live music gets started around then.

If you are interested in a unique tropical way to spend a Sunday afternoon check out the Feijoada Lounge, you won't be disappointed.
