Specializing in Brazilian fare, Alameda serves simple but delicious dishes in a funky outdoor mall tucked behind the hubbub of Sanlitun's bar street. The weekday lunch specials, at Y78–Y98, are one of the best deals in town. Their menu is light yet satisfying, with plenty of Latin influences. Crowds seek out the feijoada—Brazil's national dish—a hearty black-bean stew with pork and rice, served only on Saturdays. The glass walls and ceiling make it a bright, pleasant place to dine but magnify the din of the crowded room.
