Came here with a UOB 1-for-1 deal for their grilled meats. Like Brazil at 6th Avenue, they also have a salad bar to complement the meats. As we were there pretty early, the servers served up their meats very quickly and in 10 minutes, I had 7 different cuts on my plate! Most of the cuts are quite tasty but many of them are pretty dry. The one that was not dry was their grilled chunk beef as it was really quite fatty! The meal was good with their offer but my friends and I agree that the meats and salad bar were still better at Brazil at 6th Avenue. The servers were also more smiley and less grouchy looking at Brazil. Unless there is a big sale for their meal sets, we won't be going back anytime so soon. continue reading

Carne & Caipirinha is an ideal place for meat lovers and someone who enjoy authentic Brazilian cuisine. Better known as a Brazillian churrascaria, a restaurant serving grilled meat to as much as one can take.Therefore, if you think the title of "Meat Lovers" suits you, do indulge in this All-you-can-Eat Brazilian Churrascaria located at Sunset Way in Clementi.Dining concept is pretty simple with tables and chairs placed in front of their restaurant on the raised wooden flooring like the rest of the eating places beside. The 74 seater restaurant offers an alfresco dining experience and ideal for people who love such dining style.They are the one and only Brazilian churrascaria in Singapore that adopt Charcoal in their roasting method. The slow-roasting process allow meat in getting rich and smoky flavours. A key highlight of importing meat from Brazil is not only about their quality but that their flavour of beef tastes differently from American and Austrialia's thus look forward to this different gastronomic experience. Other than serving roasted meat, the restaurant also offers a buffet counter consisting of salad, pastas, rice and even traditional Brazilian Feijoada (black bean stew). Let's have a look at some of the dishes on the buffet counter.Up keeping its authenticity, this black bean stew is actually a National dish in Brazil and can either be served with pork or beef. In fact most part of the pork can be found in the stew and they were boiled till soften yet retaining its original flavours. If you don't mind eating innards or parts of pork, give it a try!Its good to indulge yourselves with some vegetables as sides before the real meaty challenge kick start. Egg plants were baked and was rather spongy with spices and condiments at its top.Even during mid way if you find that you need a break from those slow roasted meat, head back here to have some greens. In my opinion, I find that these sauteed mushrooms with onions and celery were good.Another side dish you may be interested is their butter corn on the cob. They are slightly charred on the outside yet retaining its juiciness.However if you want to make money worth while, it will be good to plan the use of your stomach space efficiently. Focus more on the skewers meat than the counter buffet items.These baby potatoes come good as side dishes to complete your meaty meal. Do be mindful as it contains starch and will fill your stomach easily, have a few but do not overeat ya!Describing these items as the Palms' Hearts but in layman terms this is the bamboo shoot that we have on most Ramen dishes.Ta-Da! Here's a bite of everything from the buffet counter.Using the original and authentic recipe from Brazil, Caipirinha is in fact one of Brazil's finest invention and signature tipple. Its refreshing and tangy flavours together with a bite of citrus infused with a shot of the finest liquor made this beverage outstanding.Teetotalers, grab yourself a can of Guarana Antarctica, the first ever soft drink produced in Brazil. This soft drink is produced in only 3 countries and is now available here. It uses some kind of berries and is definitely refreshing but not too sweet.A popular snack and breakfast food in Brazil, Pao de Queijo (Cheese Bread). They were cute and small in size, baked and served warmly.Just take a good look at the cheese Bread. Beware, they are really addictive.They are actually quite malleable and fragrant in which reminds me of Japanese Mochi. However if you are preparing to eat more meat later, you must control yourself on this as they are actually make up of starch and cheese are really very filling.The servers cum chefs also known as passadors, were smartly dressed in the traditional gaucho outfits. They are professional in service and never fail to smile at the diners even though they were sweating all over with a hot skewer on hand.They will go around the restaurant from tables to tables bringing their skewers and carve the portion of meat right on diners' plates. This concept of serving known as rodizio is very popular in Brazil.We started our meat eating rounds with the smallest items first and they were sausages and bacon wrapped chicken. They came together with a steel plate as its base.Indicate your interest to the passadors and they will serve you right away at your plate.This disc will be very useful as it helps you to give an indication to the passadors if you will like to have more meat. The disc has two sides, the red and green, the concept works like traffic light with green instructing them that you will like to have more meat while red representing to stop serving the food.Add a bit of salsa or even crashed croutons / bread crumbs to your meat for additional taste.While the sausages were the preliminary start, these chicken thighs looked enticing. The smoky flavours and the glorious looking lined up thighs were simply irrestiable.Let's try it!While the pork belly scored at its crackling top layer with glistening and chewy fat on the skewer.A simple and close up of the pork belly let us distinctively discover its prominent layers of fats and meat.The lamb had a gamey taste which may not be suitable to everyone.One of the premium meat that is hard to find in Singapore. These meat are actually from cow with hump and only found in the humped Brazilian cattle known as zebu. They also contain more marbling than other meat.Beef Rump is nothing as compared to the Hump. Meat is tougher here but still the good slow roast brought out the flavours.The chunky pieces of Escolar Fish that looked like bread on the hot skewer were cooked beautifully and had a strong buttery fragrance.Though it was chunky and had a good taste, we were told not eat more than 4 pieces as it is high in fat content and rather oily as our digestion system may not be able to take them.Another must try by the restaurant would be the chicken heart, it was said that those who do not love chicken offal will end up enjoying this delicacy. They are firm and tender, however still, they are not my kind of food.These grilled pineapple was rubbed with cinnamon power and was sweet. This is the only slow roast item that gave us a break from those overwhelming selection of meat served to our table. Its serves as a very good fruit to have after all the heavy meat we had."The FireBomb" is a seasonal promotion that you might not want to give a miss.Following the food trend, Carne & Caipirinha offers Flaming Carbonara Pasta in cheese wheel too. The freshly cooked carbonara pasta was placed in the large Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese wheel and was tossed. There then the staff would prepare the flaiming cocktail consisting of 3 secret blends of alcohol and pour into the wheel. The pouring process allow the flames in melting the cheese as well as charring the pasta which in turn give out a different kind of aroma. Once the flame dies out, additional cheese will be added from the wheel into the dish before dishing out to the diners.The FireBomb gave me a different prospection of having carbonara and having carbonara is not just dull with mushroom, bacon and cheese only. Instead, the alcohol had lifted the dish making it more savoury. For those who are interested, FireBomb is available at $10 per serving. However if you prefer just only carbonara, serving is unlimited.Though Pork Ribs looked delectable and fall-off-the-bone kind, I was way too bloated with amount of food and drinks I had in my stomach.Thanks OpenRice for the invitation. continue reading

Believe it or not, it was my virgin trip to Sunset way after residing in the west for almost my whole life. Thanks to OpenRice, I had such opportunity to have my first visit to Carne & Caipirinha for food tasting! Carne & Caipirinha is a Brazilian churrascaria which is one of the very few restaurants in Singapore that offers a meat buffet. Not to mention, they are the only one that uses charcoal fire for slow-roasting of quality meat, mostly directly imported from Brazil. Beware everyone... All are warned to fast at least a day before the buffet. Let me now explain why.So all of us started with their signature drink known as Caipirinha. It is a refreshing and tangy cocktail, with fresh limes as mixer, infused with a shot of alcohol. It tasted much like a mojito lime in my opinion, except that it was probably a double shot. After a few sips, my mind tells me that its time to get started with the buffet. The fresh lime in it stimulates our appetite and it really went well with the meat! They offer imported Brazilian beer and wines too. Beef and wine, need i say more? As for non alcoholics, you can try their Guarana Antartica, the very first soft drink produced in Brazil. The buffet counter greeted us with a great variety! From fresh salads to cooked pastas, along with a pretty good range of condiments! There was also their national dish known as Brazilian Feijoada (black bean stew), made from trimmings of meat eg. ears, tongues, tails. Pretty exotic and interesting but taste wise was pretty mediocre. I enjoyed the stir fry vegetables a lot more and secretly went back for second round after all the meat tastings. Highly recommend you to take more to go along with the meat! There were 14 types of grills on the menu which consist of pork, beef, lamb, chicken and fish. Warm cheesebread was served to us too where some of the members gobbled at least 10 of them. One of my top favourites was the pork sausages! It was a little more on the dry side but was flavourful and chewy. The bacon wrapped chicken was not too bad as well for bacon lovers. The pork belly was very juicy cause of the fat layer. The sides were charred and hence bringing more flavours to the meat. Beef rump! It was very lean and thus was a tad too dry for my liking. Beef hump! Apparently one of the cow species in Brazil has humps. This fared alot better than the rump! It contains more fats as compared to the rump but it was much more tender and flavourful. My favourite meat of the night!Towards the end of the meal there were grilled pineapples served! It was extremely sweet and soft. I can't help but took 3 servings of it. I love how it washes down the "gelatness" after the overload of meat. Carne & Caipirinha is offering a promotional item now known as "The Firebomb". It is a flaming carbonara pasta infused with 3 different alcohol! Staffs will perform in front of their guests as per order. Firstly, freshly cooked carbonara pasta with mushrooms will be tossed into a large Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese wheel, followed by pouring in a flaming cocktail. The flame will then char the pasta and melt the cheese, giving it a good balanced of flavour. More cheese will be scrapped onto the dish before serving! The taste of the pasta is unique and there was a hint of sweetness to it due to the alcohol. I personally enjoyed the rendition without alcohol more but others preferred the former. Do give it a try if you are there! The Firebomb is available at $10 per serving and the carbonara pasta without alcohol infused is included in the buffet. So if you need some carbs along with the meat, don't forget to order it. Overall, I enjoyed my dining experience at Carne & Caipirinha. It is an entirely different buffet experience whereby servers approach you with huge meat skewers and serve it before your eyes. Though there were some hits and misses but it is pretty worth the value. Do catch their happy hour for a better deal! Happy Hour: Mondays to Saturdays: 5.30-7pmSundays & Public Holidays: 5-6pmChildren (5 to 12 years old): $18(HH)/$24 (Free for under 5 years old)Adult: $39.90(HH)/$49.90 continue reading

Wanna have some Brazilian grilled cut meats? Head on down to Carne & Caipirinha for some authentic Brazilian churrasco. An addition to the restaurants at Sunset Way, this Brazilian churrascaria is currently the one and only in Singapore that uses charcoal fire to slow roast quality meats giving them an irresistible smoky fragrance.Here at Carne & Caipirinha, they offer an all alfresco dining which can house a total of 74 pax. However, one may feel a little warm dining in this environment in the humid weather of Singapore. Churrascaria refers to a restaurant that serves grilled meats in buffet style where passadors (chef and meat servers) will serve the grilled meats on skewers right to the dining table and carve out portions of meat onto the diners' plates.How does the passadors know who and when to serve the food? Other than hand gestures or eye signals, the small two-sided coaster-like disc acts like a traffic light for the flow of the food to be served. Where green says "Yes, Please" go ahead serve me food and red means stop "No, Thanks". No buffet is complete without a salad bar. The salad bar here offers a variety of choices ranging from pastas, rice, fruits and many more. A dish that should not be missed from the salad bar is their national dish, traditional Brazilian Feijoada which is a kind of black bean stew with pork trimmings. I was told that sometimes this dish is cooked using beef in replacement of pork. Free flow of Cheese Bread is served to kick start this food tasting. This chewy textured mochi-like bread is tasty and yet not too cheesy. This is definitely one of my favourite item for this tasting. Beverages were up next before we sink our teeth into the meats. Refreshing and sublime flavours of fresh limes infused with a shot of finest liquor, its no surprise that Caipirinha is one of Brazil's finest invention and signature tipple. Its alcohol content is considered high for a non-alcoholic drinker like myself.In fact, teetotalers can go for the Guarana Antarctica, the first ever soft drink produced in Brazil which is produced in only three countries and you get to try it now at Carne & Caipirinha. And here we go, the meat journey begins!Lamb Leg (Carneiro), Pork Belly (Barriga de Porco), Pork Sausage (Linguica), Chicken Thigh (Coxa de frango) and Chicken Fillet wrapped in Bacon were some of the roasted meats that we tasted. Though the pork belly wasn't the crispy skinned type served in chinese restaurant, nevertheless the meat is rather tender. The best for this round, in my opinion, have to be the chicken thigh. Tender, full of flavour and grilled to perfection. The pork sausage and chicken fillet wrapped in bacon seems rather normal in comparison. Among the many meat varieties available, the must-try items are namely the Beef Rump (Alcatra), Beef Hump (Cupim), Fish (Escolar) and Chicken Heart (Galinha de Coracao). Beef Hump!? Cows have hump? Well yes, humped cattle known as zebu are found only in Brazil and I figured that the meat nearer to the fats are more tender than those further away. Oh my! Chicken Heart! Yup, your eyes are not playing tricks on you. Its Chicken Heart. Seriously, the chewy texture doesn't taste as exotic as it sounds. The top in my favourite list for the night and the winner for this must-try category got to be the Fish. The oil content in this kind of fish is rather high and we were advised not to take more than four pieces as it can cause stomach upset the following day. Grilled Pineapple is the popular item among the food tasters tonight. Though I am not a pineapple lover, this is indeed quite juicy and sweet with the cinnamon powder completing the whole taste. "The FireBomb" Flaming Carbonara Pasta in Cheese Wheel is a food trend that is sweeping the world. Freshly cooked Carbonara pasta is tossed in a large Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese wheel, followed by pouring in a flaming cocktail consisting a secret blend of 3 different alcohol. The flames will char the pasta and melt the cheese making this different from the normal Carbonara with an intoxicating aroma.We tried both the alcohol and non-alcohol version and I personally prefer the former. Just to highlight, The FireBomb is available at S$10 per serving. Definitely a place for those big appetite meat lovers especially on their meat craving days. continue reading

Carne & Caipirinha is a Brazilian churrascaria in Singapore that uses charcoal fire for roasting quality meats. The usage of charcoal fire not only retains the rich flavours of the meat but also delivers the charred smoky taste. How appealing! A meal here comes buffet style, featuring a self service salad and starters bar to accompany your never-ending supply of meat.You will be spoilt for choice at the salad and starters bar! If you want to feel less sinful, help yourself to the lettuce with various dressings for you to choose from, although this isn’t really the place for it. Otherwise, hop over the starters side and pick out whichever that catches your eye — sauteed vegetables, grilled corn, green olives, coleslaw, mushroom with onions, mixed fruits, potato & egg and more. The selection is just endless! Traditional Brazilian Feijoada, a type of black bean stew, is also available at Carne & Caipirinha. This is stewed together with some pork and it was easy to eat with the soft textures.As attractive as the salad and starters bar might be, remember to save lots of stomach space for the main character of the night — the slow roasted meats! A disc will be available to every diner. You can flip it to the “Yes, please” side and the servers will offer you the skewers. But if you would like to take a break, you can turn it to the “No, thanks” side that signals them to stop!These are the meats available — Pork (sausage, belly, rib, ham), Lamb leg, Chicken (thigh, fillet wrapped with bacon, heart), Beef (rump cap, rump, hump, rib), Fish and Grilled Pineapple. What a hearty selection!The highlights for me were the pork ham, chicken thigh and grilled pineapple! The chicken thigh was beautifully roasted with a brown glazed skin, yet retaining the moisture and tenderness on the inside. Perhaps it’s the nature of thigh meat being more tender, but it was definitely a crowd pleaser amongst us! The pork ham was flavorful and tender, and contrasted well with the rest of the roasted meats. After all that meat indulgence, a piece of sweet juicy and tangy roasted pineapple definitely served as a good break. It came with thin layer of slightly charred exterior and beneath that was where all the goodness was. The warm pineapple was a great way to end off the heavy meal!More at https://feleats.blogspot.com/ continue reading
