Brazil Brazil: Churrasco Feast Platter

Although I eat out often, I'm still a frugal foodie. And being one, I want to get the most out of a dining experience but at a reasonable, or better yet, discounted cost. So after a series of discount dining adventures courtesy of group buying sites, I bring you yet another episode. This time, it's a meaty feast at Brazil Brazil.

Brazil Brazil Interior

It was last year when I first saw Brazil Brazil's Churrasco Feast Platter deal at Metrodeal. But for some reason, I wasn't able to grab the chance that time. Luckily, Metrodeal offered a flashback for this meaty treat last month. And although the deal's only on for their Serendra branch, my date and I didn't mind the long drive to Taguig (Okay, I'm lying.. Of course, the one who drove minded it).

For those of you who haven't heard of Brazil Brazil yet, it's a haven for PETA (People Eating Tasty Animals) members. As far as I know, they're the only establishment in the Metro offering Brazilian Churrasco BBQ along with international dishes in their buffet spread. Our lunch at Brazil Brazil was not for the buffet though, but for their Churrasco Feast Platter which also included free meal starters, drinks (wine or iced tea) and desserts.

Caesar Salad

First on our table was this big plate of Caesar Salad. Since my date isn't a fan of veggies, I took down this serving of fresh lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers and onions all by myself.

Crab and Corn Soup

We were then given a serving each of Brazil Brazil's Crab and Corn Soup. I really liked the consistency of this bowl of soup, not too thick but not too watery. The peppery taste was a little overwhelming though, but my date liked it.

Churrasco Feast Platter

After a few minutes, we were then served with the star of that afternoon -- the Churrasco Feast Platter. My date and I both looked in awe at the sight of the glistening beef brisket, pork belly, hanging tender, pork shoulder, chicken thighs, frankfurter sausage, banana (Saba) and Japanese corn atop a hefty serving of java rice.

Before going to Brazil Brazil, I was planning to take into account the taste and texture of each meat cut for the sake of this post. However, that plan was thrown out of the window when my date and I started digging into this platter. Every piece was flavorful, although I preferred the pork pieces than the beef since I find the latter quite tough. The frankfurter sausage and chicken thigh were so juicy, meaty and really good too. And, I was surprised with the java rice as it was very flavorful compared to most (almost flavorless) java rice from other restaurants.

Churrasco Feast Platter After

Although I'm a hefty eater, I surrendered to the Churrasco Feast Platter. I didn't eat the extra beef and pork pieces since I was already having a bad case of meat fatigue. For the first time in my life, I craved for veggies. And no, I'm not joking. In all honesty though, despite my 1-day veggies craving, I can't help but say "sayang" in my head whenever I see this photo of the unfinished, unexploited platter of goodness.

Strawberry Ice Cream Chocolate Ice Cream

To end our calorie-overloaded lunch in full swing, my date and I devoured our cups of ice cream -- Strawberry for me, and Chocolate for him. These may not be the richest, most flavorful ice cream we've tasted. But after a hearty meal, these cups were just the perfect meal enders.

THE VERDICT

Brazil Brazil may not have the most delicate premium cuts of meat in town. However, if you are a meat lover who just want to pig out on flavorful meaty treats and get your money's worth, then this is definitely the place to be! With good food, a bright and festive ambiance, coupled with great service, I can definitely say that this deal is sulit. And if there'll be another deal for Brazil Brazil some time soon, we won't be thinking twice before hitting the buy button.

Taste - 3.5/5
Ambiance - 4/5
Service - 4/5
Price - 5/5
Overall Value - 4/5

I went to an eat all you can samkyupsal buffet which was all pork all the while consoling myself with the fact that i wrapped it in lettuce, not rice. Hahaha god, all that meat! my boyfriend will love that! :D

  3. First of all ang ganda ng place. Hehe. Ang sayang kumain. And it's the first time I've heard of someone having meat fatigue and craving for only veggies (unless you're a vegan) hehe. Interesting place and food kaso, yun lang, ang layo... xP

  4. @Gellie Abogado: I actually never thought meat fatigue was possible, but it happened to me.. @__@ Anyway, I think this platter is good for even up to 3 people.

  48. based on your 3.5 rating, I could conclude that it is heavy on the stomach but lacking in flavor. Now ko lang nalaman yung PETA haha

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  50. We tried this before from metrodeal too. My sister and her hubby got this while we ate the regular eat-all-you-can. They were able to eat it all and would ask us to sneak a few slices to their platter :)

    ReplyDelete
  71. I've tried the buffet of Brazil Brazil several times already. When I saw the deals in the group-buying sites, I wanted to buy this deal too. However, I was afraid of how big the serving will be and what is included on the deal. Now that you posted this, at least I have an idea. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  72. colorful interior and the food looks so masarap!

    ReplyDelete
  73. aw now I'm famished! haha I really wanna try it! Food coma to haha

    ReplyDelete
  74. The place really caught me. It's nice reminiscent of how colorful Brazil as a country is.

    The food, I can't whisked-off anyone of them. But I'd go for the platter and salad. The Caesar Salad and The Churrasco Feast Platter bought me-off. I'm really interested how you took your photos. It's really nice. Do you do some settings in your cam? Would love to hear some tips.
