You can't deny positivity that comes from talking to Rodrigo Baena, co-owner and founder of Favela Brazilian Café in Southeast Portland. Rodrigo opened Favela with his wife, Dunya De Souza, in 2019 as a place not just for Brazilian immigrants to gather and celebrate the country's culture, but for everyone and anyone in the community to come together.
Since opening, Rodrigo and Dunya have opened a second location on Belmont, as well as a food truck.
Hear about Rodrigo's journey from Brazil, to England, Italy and India and eventually Portland, and what he utlimatly wants Favela to be in the community. Plus, where does Rodrigo like to eat when not at Favela.
