A hearty hodge podge

I first came here for dinner with some friends a couple of months ago. I was kind of skeptical about the place, given the hodge podge nature of the menu. However, we were already in the area and my friends insisted.

As it turns out, I was pleasantly surprised what turned out to be a solid meal. We started off by sharing the FRIED YUCCA. I thought that these would be more earth shattering than they were, but instead, they were more like extra starchy french fries. They aren’t a bad munchie-type of item, but it’s not something that I’d say is a must-order.

For my entree, I ordered the SHRIMP STROGANOFF which consisted of sautéed shrimps with heart of palm, and onions in a creamy pink (tomato-based) sauce. Unlike the traditional Russian beef stroganoff, which calls for the use of sour cream, the Brazilian variation uses heavy cream. The dish came with either white rice, french fries, or plantains. I opted for rice, as apparently, that’s how the Brazilians typically eat it.

Turned out to be a very satisfying dish. The shrimp were prepared well and the pink cream sauce was rich without being too heavy, no doubt from the use of tomato, onions, etc. to contrast the cream. The rice also soaked up the sauce nicely. This dish, incidentally, is huge, as were all of the entrees at our table. I had leftovers for lunch the next day. My friends also seemed to enjoy their dishes (ranging from the skirt steak salad to the fillet mignon with mushroom sauce to the grilled items).

All in all, I wouldn’t say it’s the most authentic Brazilian place I’ve been to, but it was good food nonetheless, especially when you’re in the mood for something hearty and when you’re dining with people with different tastes. The restaurant can be a bit loud and crowded on weekend nights, so you should make reservations, especially if you’re there with a big group.
