The Taste card allowed us 50% off the a la carte menu, which had a decent selection of dishes. For starters we had jerked chicken wings, avocado and mango salad. The mains were curry goat with basmati rice and Feijoada, which is supposedly Brazil's traditional dish of black bean stew cooked with pork and spices, served with rice, farofa, sauteed greens and orange slices. I had the Feijoada which was really good, I initially thought that I wouldn't have liked the orange slices with the meal but if tasted so good together, it was like a match made in heaven. I've never eaten anything like the black bean dish but it was bursting with flavour all over the place. My friend didn't enjoy the curry, it was very spicy and spoilt her meal, she ended up leaving half the dish. Lastly for dessert we had the mango and coconut creme brulee, which was delicious, the flavours weren't too overpowering It made a great cracking sound when we snapped the top with a spoon, so yummy that I could have eaten another pot.
I was impressed with the meal, probably wouldn't have noticed this place if it wasn't on the Taste card selection.
