A dining experience at Braza Emporer’s Palace is an introduction into the ‘taste of Portuguese life’. Braza, meaning ‘flame of the coal’, emanates the types of dishes prepared, which are flame-grilled to absolute perfection by a team of dedicated chefs. The restaurant places a huge emphasis on flavour. The secret behind Braza’s many culinary masterpieces are due to their use of fresh ingredients, top-quality meats and a variety of seasoning and spices.
The Brazilian culture is not only infused in the food but extends to their friendly hospitality with dedicated waiting staff answering to your every beck and call. The interior of the restaurant is warm and intimate, with large, vibrantly coloured light fixtures hanging overhead, permitting a warm, glowing stream of light. The colour palette of soft, earthy browns creates for a relaxed, enjoyable setting. The exhibition kitchen grants patrons the comfort of seeing their meals being prepared right in front of their eyes. It is also exciting to watch as the food is often cooked in fiery infernos under extreme temperatures.
The comprehensive menu is a merging of different cultures, with exotic tastes from Portugal, Brazil, Mozambique and Angola being fused together in order to create unique, innovative, flavours – meals that are bound to tantalise even the most discerning of taste buds.
For starters, whet your appetite with what the Portuguese are famous for, trinchados. For a meaty treat, opt for the braised beef trinchado layered in their signature basting sauce. As for the vegetarians, you can never go wrong with deep-fried, lemon-drizzled halloumi.
When it comes to the Portuguese tradition, it is customary to share food with loved ones. We recommend their signature Madiera Platter, which is served with ten queen prawns, BRAZA house chicken, beef espetada, calamari and mussels.
If you’re looking for a hearty portion for one, the sizeable espetadas are a must-try. The ‘Beef Espetadas’ are tender pieces of rump, served with your choice of fresh potato wedges, rice, garlic-n-herb murro potatoes and crispy milho frito.
