Carnaval Churrascaria

When asked for a birthday dinner place suggestion for my two carnivore buddies, the first restaurant that came to was Carnaval Churrascaria.

Carnaval Churrascaria is a Brazilian style restaurant... meat, meat and more meat.

The mint sauce. I’m not sure if Brazilian mint sauce is supposed to taste like that, but that was the worst mint sauce I have ever tasted. It’s just mint leafs with a little vinegar and diluted with way too much water.

Brazilian vinegard vegetable dressing. The same vinegar base is used but the mint replaced with some vegetables.

To start the buffet, you will have to take your empty plate and head to the buffet bar.

Buffet stuff. There's lamb and beef stew, fried brinjawl, prawns, potato wedges and many more.

All type of salads from pasta salad to mango salad.

Buffet stuff on plate

I really like the spinach and deep fried brinjals (That's the one right in the middle of my plate). Although the spinach is just green leafs, the spinach used are the bigger leaf spinach, and toss well with olive oil. The deep fried brinjals were mixed with some other seasoning, tasted a lot like the Japanese tempura, except this tasted like the tempura dipped with tempura sauce without making the deep fried brinjal soggy.

The servers with meat will start coming once you have seated with your buffet dishes.

Some meat.

Some other stuff they have on their skewers;
- Grilled buns with garlic and sour cream
- Roasted pineapple
- Roasted honey chicken ham
- Lamb leg
- Lamb shoulder
- Cow leg
- Prawns
- Fish
- Chicken liver and gizzard

I enjoyed most of the meat. Mostly were barbequed to medium rare to medium well done. All were juicy except one of the beef I ate. The rest were good. I particularly liked the lamb leg. The fish was good too, marinated with yellow ginger.

The birthday boys with a small piece of Choc and Cheese which I bought from Just Heavenly Pleasures.

Weekly Promotions
Monday – Party night, 5 adults, the 6th gets his/her meal free
Tuesday – Bring Your Own (wine) night
Wednesday – Ladies night, 15% off (I’m guessing for the ladies only)
Sunday – Family day 15% off

The night did not end there. We head down to Chill in Hartamas to enjoy wine. Must be the sweet wine effect because my “innocent” bro did something he should not have and I caught him on camera. Hehehe. And just for fun, I did want to steal a dustbin for the “chimney”. (But the guard was there).

The night ended there, but the morning starts in Teakuando man’s home for a Wii party. (In this case, it’s a after party) We were all playing tennis, boxing, and shooting buddies down with carrot juice. It was really fun to see all of us becoming raving rabbits.
