BANGKOK’S first authentic Brazilian churrascaria has opened in sizzling-style at the Hotel Mermaid on Sukhumvit 29.
This new eatery specializes in meats cooked and served in the churrasco style, which, for the uninitiated, means huge skewers of barbecued meats carved onto plates at diners’ tables.
The system is simple: turn over a card, green-side up, at your table and the staff will approach to start carving your preferred cuts of charcoal roasted meat. Fifteen mouthwatering selections are on offer, including highlights such as Top sirloin, Pepper beef, Pork ribs, Leg of lamb, Shrimp with bacon, and Chicken wings. Need a break from the meaty goodness? Simply turn over your card to the red side and the staff will leave you to rest for a while.
While the churrascaria is the main attraction at Brazilia Steakhouse, it is by no means the only highlight. The restaurant also offers an extensive Brazilian pizza menu featuring savory and sweet toppings starting at B199 per pizza (or all-you-can-eat pizza every Sun-Thurs for B299++; Fri-Sat at B399++. Dinner only), as well as an a la carte menu teeming with sandwiches, burgers, pasta dishes, and a host of European, Scandinavian and Thai favourites. Among the selections: Chicken cordon bleu with fries (B320); Rib eye steak with pepper sauce and mashed potato (B595); and Poached Norwegian Salmon (B360).
Helping to wash all the food down are some of the best happy hour deals to be found in Sukhumvit. In fact, more than just a happy hour, Brazilia Steakhouse and the adjoined Captain’s Pub offer a ‘Happy Day,’ with special deals on selected wines and beers from 11am-8pm (pints at B99 and wine at B100).
Diners can keep up to date with food promotions and menu additions at Brazilia Steakhouse by following the restaurant’s facebook page (see below). Also keep your eyes peeled for special Brazilian themed parties, details of which will also be posted on facebook.
