Fazenda, Manchester

A little bit of Copacabana

On a recent visit to Manchester we decided to book into Fazenda in the heart of Spinningfields. What a good decision it turned out to be as an endless stream of different cuts of meat appeared at our table. Skewers of  beef, pork, lamb and chicken came having been prepared in an array of marinades and they kept arriving until you raised the white flag (in this case a red chip). Our initial mistake was to ignore the waitresses advice to go easy on the salad bar which included salad (obviously) but a display of cheese, ham, salami, quails eggs and even 3 types of crackling.
Having started to gorge on the buffet of gourmet salads the meat started to arrive. The honey glazed pork was the teams favourite and we asked for the skewer to have three fly pasts. However we were not giving up there and had lamb and beef two different ways as well as chicken and spicy sausages. All the meat was either carved or forked onto your plate at the table. The good news was that you could surrender for a gentle food rest when a food coma was approaching and they enter the fray again by turning your chip back to green.
It required a good bottle of Argentinian Malbec to keep us focussed and another to digest. We don’t know what the puddings were like as no one was able to get that far……Delicious food and excellent service ensured the Brazilian culinary tradition remains alive and well in the heart of Manchester.
