Chicken with white beans

Chicken with white beans, rice, greens, vegetables and manioc flour

Our first ever take-away Sunday lunch from Pau Brasil on Mount Pleasant, Reading, was so good that we decided to do it again. This time we tried a different option of chicken breast with white beans, greens and rice. The beans are the stars of this meal and must definitely contain a secret ingredient that makes them so delicious.

The dish was lighter than last week’s feijoada but the portions are still substantial.

The café can no longer provide a sit-down service as the Government has instructed restaurants to close because of the coronavirus epidemic. It remains open as a takeaway and shop and this is really appreciated at this time.

Pau Brasil is at 89 Mount Pleasant, Reading, RG1 2TF, and they recommend that you phone in advance on 0118 975 2333 to place on order to reduce waiting times. Only one customer is allowed in at a time to maintain a safe environment; space in the shop is limited.

Opening times have changed slightly for the shop and takeaway and are now 11.30am to 5pm Tuesday to Sunday and closed on Monday.

NHS staff can collect a free coffee or hot drink.
