It was all action at the opening of Mundo Churrasco (pronounced Shoo-tlas-Co) in Bardon on Wednesday night. Wow, those Brazilians sure have beat.
This new addition to the line up on Macgregor Terrace is based on a 300-year-old culinary tradition that originated in the south of Brazil. Think Aussie barbeque with a big Brazilian twist.
Owners Lucio and Flavia Boggian and Shirley Roiter think they are on to a winner. “One thing we noticed when we moved to Australia from Brazil is how similar we are in our love of food – especially meat cooked over an open flame! The Brazilian BBQ is a little different from the Aussie one as we use loads of fantastic meats and vegetables authentically cooked over the charcoal pit” he said.
Mundo Churrasco will offer an extensive variety of different cuts of beef, pork, lamb, chicken, fish and vegetables, all cooked over open flame.
The beef and lamb that I tasted had a real flame grilled flavour and were delicious. I also had some casava chips which were a great alternative to traditional potato chips. I am looking forward to trying the full Brazilian experience.
Brazilian Fabio Pereira will lead the kitchen team creating the food cooked over open flames and then brought to tables by roaming carver waiters who continuously visit tables, topping up platters.
The all-you-can-eat menu’s options range from $22.50 and the food keeps coming until you say “enough” or, if you want to be authentic, “estou satisfeito”.
It's a reasonable cost for families to dine with childredn up to 4 years of age free and prices for children aged up to 12 are $14.95 for the same meal.
The restaurant will be open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner with live music featured on selected nights.
