Theatrical food? Before you say 'don't play with your food', hear me out. The dining experience is really why we leave our house. If you want good food you'll save yourself from the time and hassle and make it yourself or get takeaway, dining is about the experience. The new B'Churrasco on Adelaide's East End has your food experience covered. You'd be hard-pressed to find Brazilian all-you-can-eat BBQ in our little city, so the Melbourne originated restaurant is bringing an exciting new taste to town.
In the former PJ O'Brien's space, B'Churrasco has styled their new location with marble table tops, teal booths and colourful artwork. The space is open and inviting with the bar and kitchen in the centre to watch the meat and drinks flow from. Although there's no time to sit back and watch as the all-you-can-eat feast parades through an array of meats: chicken wings, pork neck, beef ribs and steak. A trained passador comes out to the tables with the skewers to carve food right beside you (don't leave your phone out!) and you're provided with tongs to help remove the slices. All the meat is sourced from local quality butchers, traditionally prepared during the day and expertly charcoal-grilled for dinner.
Your table comes with a light to signal when you're ready for more meat (green) and when you need a moment to rest (red). A round of meat includes 12 types of meat and you can pick and choose your favourites to ask for seconds or thirds. It's all you can eat, so you can eat your money's worth.

When your belly is too full to go on but you're not ready to let go of the experience, stay with your group and enjoy the drinks including Brazil's national drink, caipirinha. For the vegetarian friend in your party, there are a range of sides they too can enjoy continuously such as potato salad, rice and grilled vegetables. However, at the same price as the meat dishes, it will probably leave your vego friend feeling a bit left out.
The Latin approach to fruit is suitable for carnivores and vegetarians alike. Their grilled pineapple, known as Abacaxi, is flavoured with sugar and cinnamon or there are banana fritters for a sweet side.
Even the kids can enjoy the dining action as kids under 5 can eat off mum and dad's plate or 6 to 12-year-olds cost $20.
For all the meat lovers out there, get down to B'Churrasco on East Terrace to feast on Brazilian BBQ to your heart's content.
