Cabana Brasil, kites and havaianas

There’s always new restaurants to try in London and when I discovered Cabana Brasil in St Giles square, I knew we were in for a treat.

The theme is Brazilian barbecue; skewered meats and veggies cooked on the barbecue and served off the skewer at the table. Being a vegetarian, I was amazed at the street food and sides available including sweet potato fries, cassava chips, rice balls, crispy pastels.

If you’re opting for the barbecued skewers, the waiter will give you a “stop/go” card, red on one side, green on the other. The idea is to leave the card on your table with the green side facing up if you want the waiters to bring barbecued food to your table, and red if you don’t. The waiter then stamps your menu to keep track of how many skewers you have eaten so they can add it all up at the end.

The decor is also very cool – denim covered chairs, open kitchen, havaianas, and bright orange kites on the ceiling.
