North meets south at this fusion barbecue house
If you come to this Brazilian-churrascaria-meets-American-smokehouse during lunch you’ll find plenty to eliminate even the deepest midday hunger pangs, from burgers stuffed with two types of protein (there’s one with both beef and pulled pork, and another that combines barramundi and bacon), to feijoada, a traditional brazilian stew of black beans, beef and pork served with rice, cassava flour, salsa and chilli. But if you really want to make the most of your experience at this unapologetically OTT barbecue house, the all-you-can-eat fiesta is the only way to go.
Once you’re seated, a parade of carvers pass by, slicing a seemingly endless variety of meats onto your plate. During dinner there’s over a dozen different cuts on rotation – lamb rump, scotch fillet and pork belly are a given, but save some stomach real estate for more diverse offerings like chicken hearts, barramundi and tri tip covered in provolone cheese. Swipe each bite with malagueta chilli if you’re not afraid of heat, although there’s also chimichurri, Jack Daniel’s-infused barbecue and catupiry, a Brazilian cream cheese, available if you’d prefer to stay cool.
The drinks menu sticks with the North America-meets-South America theme. There are whole sections dedicated to bourbons and cachaça, the Brazilian national drink of brandy made from sugar cane. Similarly, for dessert you can order churros stuffed with dulce de leche while your dining partner digs into a diner-style banana split.
