t taste of Brazil
had a winning, salty, tangy crust. We were flagging, but those cards stayed green for fear of missing something fine – like the beautiful garlic beef bites and the rosemary-infused lamb. Now the cards were turned to red – but the gauchos came across just to be sure. And they managed to talk us into chicken wrapped with bacon and even a chicken heart for the brave soul among us. It wasn’t me. We toyed with the idea of dessert but were disappointed to learn that cost extra, on top of your £22.50. A bit grippy, that. In the end the bill came in at an eye-watering £120 plus for the four of us, including our four beers and bottle of wine. Ouch. But if you look at it as a night out – we were there for more than two hours, we thoroughly loved the food and the atmosphere – it was fair enough. It’s an experience worth having.
