Rodizio Rico, London: 4 reviews and 6 photos

This is a very special restaurant. It is amazingly good. How good? Well I knowingly went way over my business meal allowance to eat and drink here. This is London?s only authentic Brazilian ?Churrascaria de Rodizio?. Churrascaria (pronounced shoe-hoss-korea) translates as barbecue in Portuguese. Rodizio means rotating which relates to the Passadors (meat carvers) move from table to table slicing different cuts of meat from skewers. Just keep your plate empty! You can go to the exotic salad bar and hot entrée buffet to get something to accompany all the meat they will bring you. On the way to and from your table you will get a close-up view of the meats being roasted to perfection.

Their wide selection of meats include: lamb, beef (several different cuts), pork, chicken thighs, chicken wings and sometimes Brazilian specialities like chicken hearts.

Unlike one Brazilian restaurant I ate at (in Brazil!), The Passadors are always out and about serving succulent meats. No one goes hungry here!


Favorite Dish:
Meat, meat and more meat! I enjoyed some salad from the amazing salad bar then got about 5 sauces from the side and waited for all the different cuts of meat to be brought to the table. I also enjoyed a few Brahma beers from Brazil to wash it all down. You can add BBQ seafood (fish, tiger prawns, prawns & squid) for an extra fee, but you must allow 15-20 minutes for the seafood to be cooked.

      Not enough room here. When I first ate ate at a Churrasco in Rio they had the dancers. Very impressive indeed.
