In a state of hibernation. My backlog has long become unsustainable. Will probably tweet more and write less full-length stuff.


Entries in Brazilian (2)



The only Western meal I had in Beijing was at Alameda Brazilian restaurant.

The pasta I had was listed as a fettuccine but was in fact linguini. The food was quite good though. The pasta was a tad salty for my taste... too much sauce compared to pasta. The steak was great, and the veggies were surprisingly tasty. The two came as a set lunch for 60 RMB (um, like less than 8 bucks). Amazing.


Keith wanted to eat something "different" yesterday, and so Keith, Val, Mike, Becky and I decided to try Buteco, a Brazilian restaurant near Fenway. I haven't really had Brazilian before, but I've noticed the topic of Brazilian food popping up more and more...

The carrot sauce was surprisingly good - not something I'd expect to like. Becky and I shared the steak for two, which wasn't spectacular but still good. Mike had another steak, Keith had a kebab dish, and Val had a tilapia... everything was pretty good. And it was a great deal - we got out for just under $20 a person.
