Brazilian BBQ in Singapore: Carnivore at VivoCity

The place is called Carnivore – Brazilian Churrascaria. We have passed by so many time, but have never been hungry enough to attempt a meat buffet. Today we decided to just go for it as we’d heard some friends rave about this place.

The restaurant is spacious and has a great view of the sea.

Churrascaria means barbecue in the Portuguese language. The most amazing part is that for the barbeque portion of the meal you get served at your table by the meat waiters. They come to your table with long skewer of glistening meat and shave off a piece for you with a knife onto your plate. I don’t eat beef, so I had pork, chicken, lamb and fish instead which surprised me as it was gourmet standard.

There was also a buffet table with a wide selection of hot and cold salads, pasta and soup. I tried not to indulge too much because I would then be too full to try any of the barbecued meat. I tried a little of the Feijoada (Brazilian national dish of Black bean Stew with pig’s tail and spare ribs). I just had a bit of the black beans and it was good.

I am not really much of a meat eater and I was surprised that I really enjoyed the barbequed meats here. There was a whole slew of glistening grilled meat, wonderfully marinated, but the pork sausages were my pick. The chicken was golden and glistening with fat, and it was so good.

Even garlic bread was served by the meat waiters at the table in lavish style.

Who would have thought grilled pineapple could be this good. It went especially well with the honey ham and a great way to end a meal.

We had a discount so it was $32 per person. I would suggest going on a weekday for lunch and it’ll be a bit cheaper (but you may end up falling asleep at your desk after that heavy meal). Check out the website for the details about the prices.

    Mmmmm pictures of meat always look so good! You are right, we wanted to go in so many times but were afraid we weren’t hungry enough. Did they serve chicken hearts? Going to these restaurants is more for fun than for a gourmet meal but if they pulled it off then it’s really worth the money. $32 isn’t so bad, that’s like the cost of a main dish in other restaurants.

    I didn’t see any chicken hearts…but i hear that on special occasions there may be exotic meats like crocodile! I’m not too adventurous though. Am more of a carb eater. The meal keeps you full the whole day so it’s actually pretty worth the $.

    what intrigued me is that you did not put any picture of you here in this blog, you merely put the photo of the object of your posting, it’s better to take a picture of a human though. because human emotion is just so captivating to see. 🙂

    most bloggers i know are introverts (and like to remain anonymous/private to some extent) but some people are more extroverted and don’t mind sharing their identity….nothing wrong with either :)….i belong to the former….. so i hope you understand and are not offended by the moderation.

    Hey, you should check out the other Brazilian churrascaria situated at 6th Aveune. That one has been around before all these other similar restaurants caught on the craze. I prefer the quality of food there. And yes, they have chicken hearts! I go there for dinners, have not check out their lunch before.

    Ok if I have a hankering for meat again it will be the 6th Ave branch 🙂 thanks for the tip J!
