Amazing find in Bethlehem

Andrew | Apr 10, 2003 12:44 AM

Im in NYC but my folks live in Bethlehem. Was driving around on my last visit and spotted a sign that said Rei di Picanha which is portuguese for King of Sirloin. I know from my visits to brazil that the picanha is considered the best and tastiest part of the cow. Anyway, my mother and I entered and ordered the Baked Salt Cod and the Picanha. Probably the best meal I have ever had in the area. Fish portion was huge and piled high with fried garlic, onions, and potatoes drizzled with a very tasty olive oil. The picanha (I think it may actually be the NY strip portion of the cow) was extremely tasty and marinated with some secret concoction that was subtle and brought out the high quality of the meat...cooked medium rare exactly as ordered. It was so good I ordered another...this time rare and again they hit it on the mark. I would be happy to find a place like this in NYC, and am happy to report that my parents now have an outstanding restaurant to find the quality and bargain that is so missing in their area. I dont know the street, but I do know that it is on a road across the street from Marvine Village that is parallel to and eventually intersects with Stefko Blvd. A true gem.
