The newest spot to hit the Bloor West Village strip is an interesting Brazilian chicken spot. Originating in Vitoria, Brazil 15 years ago this family business has now finally reached Canada. The premise is fast, healthy food prepared fresh right in front of your eyes. With a wide selection of salads and chicken (grilled/fried/roasted) to choose from it doesn’t seem hard to find something you like. I’ve always found really hard to just choose one item – so I decided on a bit of each.
Crispy layers of buttery fried chicken skin lift off moist, seasoned meat underneath. A good portion of barbeque chicken arrives off the grill pleasantly charred and sweetly seasoned. The roasted chicken sold in half or whole, is moist and slow-cooked retaining flavour right down to the breast. Alongside three dipping sauces – sweet spicy barbeque, creamy garlic and a butter hot sauce – complement any of the menu items nicely.
Minor missteps occur, but it’s easy to overlook burnt, oppressively salty gravy when the overall experience is so amamiable.
