Aussie BBQ with a twist - a unique dining experience
Spicy. Aromatic. Exotic. Meaty.
Four words that come to mind when I think of Mundos Churrasco Brazilian restaurant located in Bardon.
One of my fav restos in Brisbane!
Churrasco (pronounced "shoo-tlas-co") is a type of barbecue originating from South America where different kinds of skewered meat are cooked on a 'churrasqueira' (barbeque) over a charcoal fire. Think Aussie BBQ with a twist. At Mundo Churrasco, diners can see the special way of Brazilian cooking right in front of them, with their open view kitchen as the centre attraction.
[ADVERT]It's a dining experience that keeps me coming back for more and one a meat lover cannot pass up on. The novelty is that you get to sample a variety of different meats, and you can try them as much as you like. Caver waiters roam the restaurant with giant skewers of delicious charcoal-roasted meats to accompany a selection of their specialty sides. You are given a cork painted two different colours on both sides, green means to keep going and red means to stop. The servers will keep bringing different choices out until you literally have to say stop (even though you don't want to because it's just such a yummy dining experience).
Each cut of meat is explained by the waiters – such as where the cut of meat is from and what kind of marinades or sauces are used. For example, Carneiro is one of the choices that passed by our table – it is marinated lamb with lime, thyme and rosemary.
To complement the meats, there is also a variety of side dishes including their well-known (by Brisbanites) cheese bread, tomato and onion salsa and Brazilian potato salad (to name a few).
Apologies, I was planning to take way more 'foodie' picture than this, but it looked and smelled so good I couldn't help myself – reviewing duties forgotten about, I ended up eating so much before remembering to ask my hubby to take a quick snap of the yumminess that is Mundos!
The restaurant is open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner with live music featured on selected nights. I can't stop raving about this place to friends and family, and will definitely dine here again.
