Braza Churrascaria, Darling Quarter, Sydney
The newest addition to the Braza chain which is located in Darling Quarter. This is not the first time I have been to Braza and probably won’t be the last. Braza is an ‘Authentic Brazilian Barbecue House’, a place for ‘meat lovers and for people who enjoy different experiences in life’.
Possibly the fanciest of the lot, T, C and I rocked up for lunch and opt for the express churrasco – a small version of the Traditional Churrasco for $28, only available for the whole table only. It’s a shorter menu but definitely ‘enough’ for lunch time.
We started with the cheese stuffed breads and boy were they tasty. Soft, pillow-y and full of cheese goodness!
The mixed salad, refreshing light and a wonderful complement considering we are eating all meat!
Love the black beans and rice.
Especially loved the roasted cassava – crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. It was so hard to stop at one, and obviously I didn’t!
Now, the meat, lots of different types of meat. On offer for lunch, rump cap, sausage, chicken drumettes, pork neck, and lamb leg.
I had one of each, the boys had more and boy were they filling. Loved the sausage and garlic bread, the sausage was a little spicy but it gave it that extra kick.
The rump cap, lamb leg and pork neck I loved, cooked to perfection, it was tender and tasty. The chicken drumettes I wasn’t a huge fan off, didn’t really like the spices.
To end, caramelised pineapple spindled with cinnamon then charcoaled, was served warm, it was sweet but not yet sickly.
Cute little ‘stoppers’, green to say keep going, feed me, and if you turn it upside down, with red being on top, it means STOP no more!!!
Service polite and friendly, it was busy for a Friday lunch. Definitely a fun way to eat with friends and family. So many meat options, even the lunch express. Thankfully I didn’t stuff myself silly like other times. It was lunch after all, if it was dinner…. it would have been a different story.
