Vegetarians be warned! The following post contains excessive consumption of meat, meat and more meat.
Carnaval Brazilian buffet restaurant, located in a corner of Damansara Jaya is a meat lovers haven. It would even make Homer Simpson proud.
How it works is you pay a fixed price (RM48 for adults) and then it’s all you can eat. The salad bar has a range of salads and savoury dishes and the meat is brought around on long metal rods, which the waiters cut for you over your plate. From the salad bar, my favourite is definately the brazillian black bean and beef stew with the remaining vegetables basically used as roughage… haha.
Guys would definately prefer this place over girls, as it is very neanderthal in nature, “Men make fire, men bring meat, men cook meat!”
Did I mention that they bring the meat around on long metal rods and cut it on each and every one of your plates? That means there are waiters running around with hot sticks of meat and giant knives passing past your head every few minutes, which you quickly forget once you start eating.
Asking the uncle who runs the place, that day there was the following:
2 cuts of Australian rump steak
1 cut of New Zealand lamb shoulder
Chicken Gizzard (Kidney)
They keep bringing the meat around until you are too full to eat.
The steak was nice, with choices of medium and medium rare available for people to choose from, but my favourite cut of meat was the lamb shoulder. It has a very nice charred outer skin, which was flavoured with a very savoury garlic marinade. The meat on the inside was very tender and juicy and you could ask for gigantic cuts of meat from the waiter.
Look at the size of that cut of meat!
The fish and chicken were nice as well, with the fish having a curry tasting marinade whereas the chicken had a garlic based seasoning on it.
Sir, would you like a side of meat with your meat?
The manager let us know that on different nights, some of the cuts of meat vary, with seafood available some nights, but the popular cuts of meat never change, these being the beef rump steak and the lamb shoulder.
Love eating meat? Relatives and friends refer to you as DBKL? Do you eat a whole pizza for lunch by yourself? Then Carnaval is the place for you.
