The words "feijoada" and "pastel" have no direct translation into English. They are typical Brazilian dishes. You'd have to explain the meanings:

"Feijoada is a stew of beans with beef and pork meats, which is a typical Portuguese dish, also typical in Brazil, Angola and other former Portuguese colonies. [...] The Brazilian feijoada is prepared with black turtle beans, with a variety of salted pork and beef products such as salted pork trimmings (ears, tail, feet), bacon, smoked pork ribs, at least two types of smoked sausage and jerked beef (loin and tongue)."

"Pastel is a typical Brazilian dish, consisting of crisp pastry with assorted fillings. In Brazil the Pastel is a salgado (salty snack) primarily sold on the street with a thin pastry envelope containing minced meat, catupiry and chicken, shrimp or another filling and then deep fried. Sweet pastéis also exist and may contain guava jelly and cheese or other fillings."
