Gabriel Inacio: My Favourite Brazilian Restaurants in Sydney!
“What are your favourite Brazilian restaurants in Sydney, Gabriel?”
“Where can you find the best Feijoada in Sydney?”
Brazilian community leader, Gabriel Inacio, is confident with his reply!
“It has to be Ovo Café. It’s one of my favourite restaurants and I like it because the food is similar to what you’d have at home in Brazil. I would go as far as saying it’s the closest experience to home made Brazilian food in Sydney,” said Gabriel.
“All my friends love Ovo Café. It’s one that I definitely recommend for an authentic experience,” he added.
According to their Facebook page Ovo Café is one of Sydney’s favourite Brazilian cafés.
The café has a hip and trendy vibe and is located in one of Sydney’s most famous streets, Oxford Street, in Darlinghurst.
“Another one of my favourite Brazilian restaurants, similar to Ovo Cafe and popular amongst students who prefer the affordable every day meals is Brazilian Flame,“ said Gabriel.
The restaurant’s specialty is Brazilian style grilled meats and barbecued dishes. It is slightly less expensive and attracts a younger crowd that includes students.
“Another favourite of mine is Braza Churrascaria for atmosphere,” said Gabriel.
Braza Churrascaria is probably the most famous restaurant for locals and tourists and those that are looking forward to having a true Brazilian rodizio (meat on a stick) experience. Though, it is a bit pricy for low-income earners and students who are only allowed to work part-time, it certainly has a great atmosphere being located in Darling Harbour.”
The intoxicating smell of spit-roasted meat and cachaça-based cocktails draws people of all nationalities to experience the beauty of Brazil in Sydney.
