Off to the Olympics a August 5-21 2016 in Rio? Get that Brazilian the flavour first! If you are watching from Yorkshire try the local restaurants below.
Eat Brazilian before you go.
Brazilian steakhouses on the Rodizio concept are all you can eat style restaurants where waiters bring a range of meat at regular intervals. In churrascarias or more traditional Brazilian-style steakhouse restaurants, servers come to the table with knives and a skewer, on which are speared various kinds of quality cuts of meat. Tropeiro Brazilian Restaurant Sheffield is a vibrant meat lovers’ paradise based on the Rodizio style. Cuts of meat cooked on an open fire are then carved at the table to eat with South American-style cocktails are bursting with fresh flavours.
- The cocktail Caipirinha is made from Cachaca sugar cane liquor and is the official Brazilian drink.
- Brazilian finger food includes cheese buns and other typical regional dishes include vatapá, moqueca, polenta and acarajé.
- Feijoada is probably considered the country’s national dish. ‘Caruru, which consists of okra, onion, dried shrimp, and toasted nuts (peanuts or cashews), cooked with palm oil until a spread-like consistency is reached; moqueca capixaba, consisting of slow-cooked fish, tomato, onion and garlic, topped with cilantro; and linguiça, a mildly spicy sausage.’
Hair Do’s before you go
It is obvious who is creating some of the sports stars hair styles. Getting a Brazilian takes on a new meaning when linked to a Brazilian blow dry and keratin treatment. Try one of the salons in Yorkshire specialising in this treatment. It would be no use to me unless there is a baldy version.
After the Games are Over
When you get home you may be craving some good old Yorkshire fish and chips – or if you are a stay at home spectator you can just keep eating your normal diet, mushy peas and all.
