There’s such a suite of dining choices down Clapham High Street that south Londoners in the vicinity are spoiled for choice. If, however, you’re a fan of big-flavoured carnivorous banquets you’re in for a treat at Rodizio Brazil, Clapham’s preeminent Brazilian barbecue joint. If you’re new to the rodizio concept, it’s here that you can get an education. Book a table, take a seat, flag down the passadors and prepare to feast on mouth-watering grilled meats done in inimitable Latin American steakhouse style.
Here’s the inside scoop on the rodizio phenomenon that’s quickly becoming a fixture among London’s avid meat-eaters. A rodizio is, essentially, a selection of meats slowly roasted on a traditional Brazilian churrascaria barbecue. At Clapham’s Rodizio Brazil, you can choose from fifteen – yes, fifteen – different cuts covering (at least) beef and beef ribs, rump and cap of rump, sirloin and flank steaks, legs of lamb, pork ribs and loin with Parmesan cheese, chilli and herbed chicken, chicken legs, chicken hearts and chicken with bacon, and sausages. Besides offering a rather comprehensive anatomy of meat-bearing land animals, the rodizio is famed not simply for its delectable food but for its manner of service. And this Clapham High Street rodizio is exemplary.
Rodizio Brazil’s Clapham High Street restaurant operates in the traditional Latin American steakhouse way as a fixed-price all-you-can-eat affair, and it works like this: after you take a seat in the restaurant’s cosy, buzzing Clapham premises you’ll find at your table a little coloured disc, red on one side and green on the other. Green side up means the waiting passadors (servers) will approach and take your order, carving your choice of meat fresh from the grill. Red means please I’ve had enough. It’s as simple as that, and it’s this kind of social buffet crossed with table service approach that has made rodizio dining a popular pastime in London and around the world. Booking for a big group is the only way to do it!
