Dinner at Brazilian Restaurant Churrascaria, Concord

Hey delish readers, just came back from a Brazilian restaurant named Brazilian Restaurant Churrascaria. This is my first time at eating at a proper BBQ Brazilian restaurant and definitely not going to be my last.

The atmosphere as very warm and cosy, with lots of seating both indoor and outdoor. This restaurant also had a cute bar on the side. We ordered the BBQ Menu, which features all you can eat BBQ and sides for $38.

I ordered my favourite drink, Pina Colada. The Pina Colada was alright, it was a little sour and expensive. I’m not sure if it was alcoholic because I didn’t taste any alcohol in it.

Moments later we were served the sides, which was a tasty mix of garlic bread, rice, mixed salad, potato salad, fried banana, cassava chips and a dip. The sides were actually really nice the rice in particular had garlic mixed into it which was super yummy.

Later the waiters bring in the meat we can a combination of chicken, pork, beef and lamb. They were all served from a metal skewer. Only thing I didn’t like was sometimes they may miss your table so you are not able to try some of the dishes. I really wanted to try the chicken with peri peri sauce or the pork ribs and even some corn (because I love corn) but they never came across our table. But the dishes we did try were really nice and there was a crazy amount of flavour on the meat, it was so gooooood.

One thing though was the price of drinks there is pretty steep we ended up spending around $30 extra on drinks.

I would only recommend this for meat lovers, you can order seafood from the Ala carte menu though.

All together I give Brazilian Restaurant Churrascaria 4 out of 5 stars.

Also don’t use their online booking, I don’t even think they use it.

Brazilian Restaurant Churrascaria is located at:

80 Majors Bay Road

Bookings: 02 9743 1060

There is also a restaurant located in Bondi

Spinach, Feta and Ricotta Quiche Recipe

Here is my recipe for Spinach, Feta and Ricotta Quiche which I made today for mother's day. My mum really liked it so it must be good!!!

This makes about 18 - 20 muffin size quiches or 1 large quiche

Ingredients:

1 brown onion, chopped

4 cloves garlic, finely diced

1 tablespoon olive oil

4 eggs

250 g frozen spinach, defrosted and water squeezed out

250 g ricotta cheese

250 g bulgarian feta cheese, crumbled

2/3 cup cup cream

1/2cup tasty cheese, grated

1/2 cup milk Salt and pepper

1-2 sheets puff pastry (if making large quiche) 3-4 sheets (if making muffin size quiche)

Method
Preheat oven to 180°C.

In a frying pan, heat the oil. Add the onion and garlic and fry, stirring, until it is cooked.

In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs, add the spinach, ricotta, feta, tasty cheese, cream, milk, salt and pepper, onion and garlic, and mix thoroughly.

Lay the puff pastry in a greased pie tin or muffin tray, fill with the quiche mixture and bake for 35 minutes for large quiche, 25 minutes for muffin size.

If you want to make a large batch to eat later you can just simply reheat in the oven for 5 to 10 minutes

ENJOY!!!

Valentine's Day At Redoak

For Valentine's day this year, me and my partner went to the Redoak Boutique Beer Cafe for dinner. It was the only decent place we could find around the Sydney CBD that had a table for us as we committed the Valentines Day sin of not booking a table at any restaurants. Lucky for us we were able to be seated straight away and not have to wait a ridiculously long time to have our dinner.

The dinner menu at the Redoak is very simple and they have a loads of different types of beer. For entrée you can

start off with their wide range of tasting platters ranging from seafood, meat, vegetarian, dessert and cheese.

We ended up choosing the cheese platter because I absolutely looooove cheese. The cheese platter comes with four types of cheese and four beers to taste with the cheese.The following is the cheese we tried with the corresponding beers:

  • Baked ricotta, lemon and sage souffle with citrus confit - Belgian Wit
  • Blue Cow creamy cheddar (WA) with lavosh crisp bread and almond and raisin compote - Honey Ale
  • Fire Engine Red Washed Rind (VIC) with crisp wafer and quince paste - Summer Lager
  • Berry Creek Tarwin Blue (VIC) on an oatcake with golden syrup drizzle - Organic Pale Ale

 

My favourite was the baked ricotta, it was sooo good, the worst was the blue cheese (but then again I hate blue vein cheese >.<). I also liked the Belgian Wit beer, it was so easy for me to drink (I'm normally not a beer drinker).

For mains we had two dishes and a serving of the redoak hand cut chips. We had Ricotta and Lemon Thyme Stuffed Chicken Breast (on a roasted garlic potato cake, salsa verde with bacon and mushroom ragout) and Beef Two Ways (a duo of beef tenderloin and slow cooked beef brisket with Oatmeal Stout jus, herb butter, tomato confit and chive batons served with potato fondant) Both were so yummy and very well cooked. The chicken was so tasty and I especially liked the potato cake. Its was a great combination! The beef was really nice too, the tenderloin was cooked perfectly and the brisket felt like the flavours were just melting in your mouth.

 



 

The hand cut chips were nice too, it was served with aoili and was super crunchy. There was so much food though so we didnt get to finish it =(


Overall was a nice place to eat, it may be a beer cafe but the food is amazing!


CHEERS!! =)
