The Brazilian barbeque sensation of churrasco is no longer a food fad: these all-you-can-eat skewers of perfectly seasoned and grilled meats are here to stay. When Casa Brasil flung its doors open onto the Petersham public in 2006, they were targeting their fellow members of Sydney’s burgeoning Brazilian community, but the Aussie public know a great barbie when they see one, so it’s no surprise that New Canterbury Road’s tiny corner of Copacabana seems here to stay.
The brilliance of Brazilian barbeque is that it never stops. The meats just keep coming and coming, until you feel like Ronaldo himself after a few years of retirement. At Casa Brasil on New Canterbury Road in Petersham, your 38 bucks gets you an unlimited supply of superbly seasoned and cooked steaks, sausages, fish and more, delivered directly to your table. Alongside the astounding array of meat is a selection of Brazilian favourites, transported from Sao Paulo to Sydney, including the national dish of Brazil, feijoada, a hearty black bean, beef and pork stew.
Veggies need not worry, however. Whilst BBQ is certainly the main order of the day at Casa Brasil, there are plentiful options for all diets, and the variety of South American vegetables – cassava, zucchini, pineapples – are served up as well. This outlet on New Canterbury Road is a firm favourite amongst Petersham foodies, and a welcome addition to the Sydney culinary scene – so make sure to book a table ahead of time to avoid disappointment.
