Braza - Manly (CLOSED)
Time Out says
Roll up with a crowd and embark on a non-stop protein party that brings the best of Brazil to the Northern Beaches
Turn lunchtime into a party with dishes like cassava gnocchi laced with smoked onion and sage burnt butter to prato feito, a popular Brazilian mixed plate dish that piles on rice, black beans, salsa, beer battered chips, roasted cassava flour and grilled meat. If you really want to make the most of your experience, the all-you-can-eat churrasco is the only way to go.
Once you’re seated, a parade of passadores (carvers) swing by, slicing a seemingly endless variety of meats onto your plate. There’s some 20 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 grilled in banana leaf and traditional house-made sausages. Swipe each bite with malagueta chilli if you’re not afraid of heat, though there’s also chimichurri, aioli and catupiry, a Brazilian cream cheese, available if you’d prefer to stay cool.
The drinks menu stays on theme, with a whole section dedicated to Caipirinhas, the national cocktail of Brazil, where you can reconfigure your glass with different fruits and liquors – the Sakerinha for example, adds saké and strawberry into the mix.
