Forget the meat-and-potatoes steakhouse. The spicy grilled Brazilian tradition of churrascaria is what you should seek for an eventful and delicious evening out.
The idea is simple. You sit down, and passadors bearing skewers of grilled premium meat, carve moist slivers directly onto your plate. Beef, chicken, lamb, fish – there’s no need to limit yourself. It’s an endless flow of meaty goodness where all you have to do is sit, and eat. And eat. And eat. Just when your palate is starting to feel a little jaded, you order a portion of grilled caramelised pineapple whose sharp, tangy sweetness is the perfect way to whet your appetite all over again. All so you can get back to all those delicious cuts of meat.
Don’t just be dazzled by all the succulent barbequed meats and rotisserie-cooked to perfection on offer though. There’s also a buffet spread that shouldn’t be overlooked! With staples like salads and pastas, it’s where you should turn to if you feel that you’ve met your match on the protein front.
The meat though, is undeniably the draw of this restaurant, and with a name like Carnivore, that shouldn’t be a surprise.
Stationed near the archways of the iconic CHIJMES pavilion, this Carnivore outlet is undeniably unique. Softened by the backdrop of the gorgeous white chapel, the outdoor dining option here is a must, creating an incomparable ambiance that makes this unique dinner experience all the more special. So sharpen those claws and polish those canines my friends, because there’s no better place to meet. (Apr 2015)
