Review: Terra Brasilia, Bridgeport, CT

It sure is nice to find something DIFFERENT that's good, locally.

Terra Brasilia is a little restaurant in Bpt that serves food buffet style and is one of four restaurants with that name. Two are in Mass, another is in Danbury, CT.

I've been two times now, and I must say that their food is good...not astonishing, but good.

The buffet may be a little different that what you're used to; let me explain. You go up, take a plate and they weigh it, then you're given a ticket. Go up, get another plate, rinse, repeat, you get the idea, then the cashier totals you up in the end on your way out. It creates quite a problem when you have multiple people on your bill however--a good amount of confusion.

To start, they have many salad/vegetable offerings.....but you didn't come here for the vegetables, huh? Consistently they have a shrimp salad, fried chicken, fried fish (cod today), black beans and rice, mashed potatoes, etc. They also have a lovely carving station where you can get pork sausages, roasted chicken, steak, roast pork, and probably other stuff that I have forgotten. Let me say that their roast chicken is probably the best I have had out in a long, long, time. The pork sausages taste just like kolbasi, and the steak is also very good--not prime rib though :)

If you get two plates, it will probably run you around 15 bucks per person or so.
I'll head back again when I'm in the area!
