Joburg may be known for its Mexican food – particularly our tacos – but there’s a type of cuisine from even further south of the border that we have an eye on since Rodizio Melrose Arch opened its doors: Brazilian food.
Here, there’s more to the Brazilian fare than your typical steakhouse – think platters of grilled chouriço, creamy chicken livers, chicken trinchado, grilled calamari and fresh Cape mussels plus a selection of tapas, salads, meat and poultry, fish and shellfish and vegetarian dishes. But that’s not all – for just R255, meat connoisseurs can indulge in the ‘Meat Rodizio’ and feast on as much as they like of various cuts of slow-roasted prime beef, tender chicken, succulent pork, sensational leg of lamb and traditional chouriço. Simply turn the green side of your robot up to tell the carvers to ‘bring it on’ or the red side up to tell them to ‘stop for now’.
PS: On Sundays, you can pay the same price for the famous Sunday lunch buffet (hello, bottomless prawns!), which includes the Meat Rodizio. Bom apetite!
