Buffet sampler ($4.99 per pound, without churrasco): okra, chicken rolled around spinach and rice, and feijão tropeiro. In their original form these "cattleman's beans" provided sustenance during long horseback expeditions; nowadays the basic combo of beans, toasted manioc flour, and nubbins of bacon or sausage are often enhanced, as here, by bits of fried egg and greens, perhaps collards.
