After starting in Pune, Boteco now makes its way to Mumbai as the first restaurant in the city that offers up authentic Brazilian food. Located in BKC, the restaurant has very uncorporate, laid back vibes. Running the show hands on is executive chef Guto Souza who hails from Brazil and has worked last at Go with the Flow in Goa.

 

The food here is authentic Brazilian with some Italian and European dishes too. We start with Rucola Sausage Salad (Rs 485). The rucola is fresh and the crumbled sausage does not overpower the dish. Pao de Queijo (Rs 445) is a local street food staple, with a chewy cheese filled bread, which one has to make efforts to stop eating. Gravlax is a Nordic dish consisting of raw salmon, cured in salt, sugar, and dill. Salmon Gravlax (Rs 630) is a delicious dish. 

 

Mix Grill (Rs 790) with Lamb, Buff, Pork, and Sausages is good though I would very much prefer our own kabab platter to be made with same meats but a lot more seasoning.

 

What takes my breath away is Feijoada (Rs 680), the national dish of Brazil, which is basically rajma chawal but in this case, rajma is cooked with pork sausages and pork belly, taking rajma to an absolutely different level, making it unbelievably delicious. This is one dish I would unhesitatingly come back to this restaurant for.

 

Do visit this restaurant, if only for the Feijoada, and of course many other Brazilian delicacies.
