Bossa Nova @ Parkroyal Hotel
November 25, 2009
Bossa Nova's all-you-can-eat Brazilian grill has always been its main attraction, but there's also an a la carte menu now with intriguing items if you don't feel like indulging in a buffet.
Churrasco prawns in palm oil moistened with coconut milk, tomatoes and garlic, served with Brazilian taro rice and sauteed brassica. The portion was meagre, but this tasted exotic enough. Lots of rich, complex flavours.
Grilled chicken with Mayan spices & chocolate sauce. Evidence that chocolate can be eaten with virtually anything. The soft, sweet & sticky chocolate blended surprisingly well with the tender, salty chicken. A scrumptious way to have both a main course and dessert at once.
