Rodizio @ Ovo Boteco, Potts Point

Located downstairs in a large space off Bayswater road in Potts Point, you’ll find Ovo Boteco, which is a new take on Brazilian food in Sydney. Completely unlike other restaurants of Brazilian influence here. This is typical of street food you’d find in Brazil.

The restaurant has a fun vibe, and staff are keeping to theme, sporting colourful beaded necklaces over a white shirts and they’ve got fun personalities to boot.

There’s roving service and all dishes are served to you by the wait staff regularly, where you make your our selection as they move about. The fact that the restaurant was filled with Brazilian diners must be testament to the authenticity of the food.

Given the style of service , a lot of the food is finger food and since it’s very vegan and vegetarian friendly. They do offer an ala carte menu but we were here for the Friday night Rodizo. They offer the basic for $20, and premium for $29 which we think is great value. The price here is so reasonable and you can really eat as much as you want (or can fit in). We recommend wearing your stretchy pants.

Completely opposite to what we expected. We thought the menu would be packed with meat, but rather, plenty of chicken and cheese croquettes, polenta balls, rice, salad and some amazing mortadella sandwiches.

On the Premium Menu, you also get:

Picanha gratinado, chorizo and onion, grilled corn, chicken eschondidinho (chicken shepherd pie) isca de frango (fried chicken) baiao de dois (rice and beans), vegan mouqueca (casserole/stew) pudim (dessert).

The cheese balls are out of this world and what could be better than also dipping them in cheese sauce.

The place has a good atmosphere to it, with live music several nights a week and loud chatter happening from plenty of groups out for a good night.

We like the decor, with exposed brass pipes, mosaic floor tiles, an eclectic mix of trinkets and dim lighting, it is really fitting with the Brazilian experience. The space is huge with three separate dining rooms and we think it would be a good place for an event too.

We recommend getting the train or Uber and taking advantage of the amazing cocktails on offer, making for a exciting and fun filled night. We had a refreshing  Caipirinha (Brazil’s national cocktail) but there’s so many to choose from! For the non drinkers or designated driver, there’s plenty of juices too.
