The place is called Carnivore – Brazilian Churrascaria. We have passed by so many time, but have never been hungry enough to attempt a meat buffet. Today we decided to just go for it as we’d heard some friends rave about this place.
The restaurant is spacious and has a great view of the sea.
Churrascaria means barbecue in the Portuguese language. The most amazing part is that for the barbeque portion of the meal you get served at your table by the meat waiters. They come to your table with long skewer of glistening meat and shave off a piece for you with a knife onto your plate. I don’t eat beef, so I had pork, chicken, lamb and fish instead which surprised me as it was gourmet standard.
There was also a buffet table with a wide selection of hot and cold salads, pasta and soup. I tried not to indulge too much because I would then be too full to try any of the barbecued meat. I tried a little of the Feijoada (Brazilian national dish of Black bean Stew with pig’s tail and spare ribs). I just had a bit of the black beans and it was good.
I am not really much of a meat eater and I was surprised that I really enjoyed the barbequed meats here. There was a whole slew of glistening grilled meat, wonderfully marinated, but the pork sausages were my pick. The chicken was golden and glistening with fat, and it was so good.
Even garlic bread was served by the meat waiters at the table in lavish style.
Who would have thought grilled pineapple could be this good. It went especially well with the honey ham and a great way to end a meal.
We had a discount so it was $32 per person. I would suggest going on a weekday for lunch and it’ll be a bit cheaper (but you may end up falling asleep at your desk after that heavy meal). Check out the website for the details about the prices.
