On my Plate: Chamas Churrascaria and Bar, Dubai
Ideal for… Night out with the guys (or meat lovers!)
Restaurant name and location: Chamas at Crowne Plaza Hotel on Sheikh Zayed Road
Atmosphere: For a weekday night, it was pretty full. Casual atmosphere with a live band – great way to spend a weekday night.
What they say: Chamas Churrascaria and Bar is NOW OPEN in the heart of Dubai at Crowne Plaza, Sheikh Zayed Road, bringing diners authentic Brazilian cuisine and flair. Diners can expect a traditional Churrascaria atmosphere with an open cooking kitchen featuring 18 different kinds of meat skewers including chicken, steak and lamb. The meats are marinated and then barbequed on the grill before being skewered and ‘Passadores’ – traditional meat waiters – come to the table to serve.
What to order:
-You get unlimited salad and soup bar to eat with your meat.
-You can eat as much meat as you can and the variety you get are… Beef tenderloin, Beef top sirloin, Rib cut rib eye, Chicken thighs and chicken sausage, Turkey breast wrapped in turkey bacon, Lamb leg, Duck breast to Pineapple – all are delicious, depending on your personal tastes. Don’t leave without the Pineapple though!
Service: Great, sweet service – you get servers coming to you with options ever few minutes.
What I loved:
-Make sure to have Caipirinha, the delicious Brazilian cocktail (they can make it alcoholic & non alcoholic!)
-You get a card – green card for more and red card for a break.
-The live Brazilian band with the casual atmosphere vibe.
-Finishing off the meal with pineapple infused with Cinnamon – yum yum!
