    What to eat in Glasgow's Brazilian churrascaria restaurants

    Some of the most popular Brazilian restaurants in Glasgow are churrascarias. This is the traditional meat restaurant of Brazil. In a churrascaria, various succulent cuts of beef, pork, lamb and chicken are roasted over a charcoal grill. This barbecue technique has its origins with the gauchos, cooking their steaks over an open fire out on the pampas. Now, the techniques and flavourings may be a little more complex and sophisticated, but the spirit remains the same. Your server, or 'passador', will typically visit your table once you are seated to show you the different cuts of meat that are available and explain what to expect from each.

    Try new dishes at Brazilian restaurants in Glasgow

    Churrascarias may be popular but they are not the only type of Brazilian restaurants found in Glasgow and there are lots of other dishes to try. For example, the national dish of Brazil is Feijoada. This is a hearty stew of black beans, pork and sausages and is a filling and satisfying feast. Moqueca, meanwhile, is a delicious fish stew, typically served in clay pots and consisting of diced seafood, tomatoes, onions and coriander. Acarajé is another favourite, made with crushed black-eye peas, stuffed with shrimp and cashew nuts, all bound together in a burger-like patty and fried in palm oil.

    Enjoy sweet treats in Glasgow's Brazilian restaurants

    If you happen to have a sweet tooth you will particularly enjoy the puddings in Glasgow's Brazilian restaurants. Quindim, for example, is a glorious but simple pudding made from eggs, coconut and sugar. It's a little like a set custard. Brigadeiros are another great way to finish off your meal. A little like a chocolate truffle, these sweet little balls are made from condensed milk, cocoa powder and butter.
