Sabor Brasil
Brazilian restaurant – with Churrascaria de Rodizio (Brazilian BBQ)
42 Canal Street
Nashua, NH 03064
(603) 886-5959

After my second visit to this Brazilian restaurant, I can’t wait to go back for thirds. This is a very small, clean place on Canal street in Nashua. They have a rotisserie for the meats right behind a large salad/steam bar that runs across the width of the dining area. They have a full menu of other items.

My first visit, about a month ago, was an all-meat event. They had shut down the steam section and had only a few items on the salad side of the bar. So other than a few salad items, we stuffed ourselves on all the meats. They had very tasty beef short ribs, chicken legs and chicken filet’d and wrapped in bacon, pork ribs (a thick cut from the spareribs – no bone, but some cartiledge), a beef round steak, sausages (more like everyday polish rather than a chorizo or a linguica).

I enjoyed the Churrasco. The price was $17/person – that’s pretty darned good for all you can eat. As with other Brazilian BBQ places, they put the little flag on the table, and as long as you leave it green, they’ll come around. Turn it red, and they stop.

But I wanted so much more than just the meat. This time, I got it. I was planning to order off the menu, but this time, they had the steam line full, and it was part of the Churrasco – so I could sample all the items on the line, as well as get as much meat as I wanted, all for the same price. The best items on the line were the collard greens and the fejoado – a delicious black bean casserole with chunks of pork. There were a lot of other items, as well – mostly variations on the theme of beans and rice. We shared a single dessert of Crème de Milho – a creamy corn mousse made with coconut milk and topped with cinnamon. Extremely recommended!

I’ve been to the Midwest Grill in Somerville and a place in NYC – by no means am I an expert on Brazilian BBQ. Overall, I’d say that the meat choices, especially of the sausages, were better at Midwest. But the rest of the menu (so far as I’ve experienced it) really makes up for it. What I am an expert on, is getting my money’s worth when eating out, and this is a really good deal for some excellent chow.
