Time Out says

Run by São Paulo culinary veteran Rodrigo Oliveira, Caboco is a colorful, hyper-regional modern Brazilian restaurant in the Arts District specializing in Amazonian cuisine. Drinkswise, Caboco also offers an extensive selection of cachaças, a sugarcane-based spirit, as well as an array of caipirinhas, Brazil’s national cocktail—the first such dedicated program in Los Angeles. While the menu is full of seafood-centric surprises, the torresmo, a crispy seven-layer pork belly served with lime wedges, and the crispy tapioca bites are must-orders. Look out for dishes containing jambú flowers: Also known as buzzbuttons, they impart a slightly tingly sensation—a slow-burning delight for the tongue.
