Bossa Grill, LeedsThursday, 13 April 2017
As a non-red meat eater Bossa Grill was a strange choice for me. I was invited down to try out their new menu and I was really keen to see, as a mainly meat friendly restaurant, how their veggie option faired. I was pleased to say that I actually left full, I was worried for a while that I'd be only left with the salad bar but there was plenty for me to eat.
I went for the Moqueca which is a Brazilian stew with coconut sauce and rice. This was super tasty and was surprisingly filling, a great option to go for if all your friends are meat eaters.
Sharing the Pao de Alho, batatas, slaw and corn on the cob was perfect for a table of 4. Just enough for everyone to try a little bit of each. I have to say the chips were actually amazing, worth a try.
I can only speak about the meat options from the opinions of my table mates. You receive a little cow on the way in for your table, when he is stood up it means, BRING ON THE MEAT! When he is on his back it tells the servers to stop bring anything to your table. There seemed to be lots of meat options and it was good quality for the price.
We finished up with some amazing churros with chocolate dip. These were really light, fluffy and the perfect end to our meal.
They have great cocktails too, serving up a perfect version of one of my favourites - the Caipirinha. A strong one but it really gets you in the mood for the Brazilian food on offer.
Bossa Grill is one of those great places to come with your friends, it's all about sharing, sides and more sharing. The price point is perfect too, the lunch menu is only £12.90 and Evening Meal comes in at £18.90. The price makes it perfect for the student population. Adding on the dessert only costs £2.50. I have to say Bossa is definitely worth the visit.
