Going Brazilian

Brazil is a big place yet most people in Europe won't have tried Brazilian cuisine.

In short it's plentiful, delicious and once tried, normally becomes part of the regular restaurant round.

So where can you get it? There are two places within easy reach where you can enjoy authentic Brazilian food.

For simple home style lunches or dinners try the restaurant at Camping La Safor on the outskirts of Barx (Simat road). www.campinglasafor.com, It's a tranquil mountain setting, Brazilian hospitality from Valeria and her Spanish husband Vicente, and the type of food that Brazilians will tuck into for sunday lunch including sliced beef, mayonaise salad, rice and fried bananas (eaten with the main course), followed by typical puddings including lemon mouse and rice pudding. Spanish food and Tapas also available. Also try the Brazilian Brahma beer and Lime Ciapirina's. Advantage of kids playground and pool in summer.Lot's of home style non fancy food and good value.

For a full Brazilian 'Rodizio' (As much as you can eat BBQ) typical of southern Brazil, try 'Fuego Brasil' half way between Altea and La Nucia T: 965871135

If you want to impress your guests they won't be dissapointed by the attractive tropical decor, fantastic salad bar and endless supply of BBQ'd meats sliced directly onto your plate by the waiter in typical Rodizio style. The set price of €21 (half price for kids, free for toddlers) is great value as you won't need breakfast or dinner if you opt for Sunday lunch.

Great Birthday party venue.
