Casa Brazilia: First-ever Brazilian à la carte lunch menu in Singapore

How often have your family or friends suggested Brazilian cuisine for your get-togethers? Probably about as often as spotting a unicorn at a zoo. Casa Brazilia, a restaurant tucked away in Bukit Pasoh, 1 minute away from Outram Park MRT exit 4, is one of the few establishments in Singapore serving Brazilian delicacies.

The restaurant has just launched its first-ever à la carte lunch menu, available on Tuesdays to Fridays from 12pm to 2.30pm. I excitedly dragged my friends along to experience it.

What I tried at Casa Brazilia

To kick off our Brazilian adventure, we ordered the Costella Com Fettucine, Beefrib Pasta (S$18.90). A generous mound of handmade fettuccine crowned the entire beef rib, barbecued slowly for 12 hours, dressed with cheese and chives.

Before we even delved in, we effortlessly pulled a massive piece of beef rib bone aside, hinting at the potential tenderness awaiting us.

And we were spot-on! The beef rib flesh not only melted off the bone but was also well-seasoned, an important factor that other establishments fail to achieve. The fettuccine was garlicky and possessed a light spice, with a nice bite that grew on me after 2 to 3 mouthfuls. When paired together, they were a match made in heaven!

casa brazilia lunch menu - Francesinha

I was intrigued when the Francescinha (S$22.90) arrived at our table. It was a dish that was unfamiliar to me. I later learnt that it’s a Portuguese sandwich— why can’t all sandwiches look like this piece of art?

The Francescinha was topped with a picture-perfect sunny side-up egg and cheese. We delicately halved the bread and watched the golden river of yolk flow down.

With a gentle tug, we revealed a surprise, consisting of layers of what I can only describe as ‘culinary eye-candy’. There lay gorgeous slices of medium-well beef with a thin layer of chimichurri, a herb-based sauce known for its seamless pairing with steaks in South American regions.

I was first greeted by the zesty punch which came from the bisque-like tomato-based sauce. Then, the creamy egg, fluffy bread, hearty steak, and chimichurri worked hand-in-hand, giving me a sensational 4-step flavour and textural experience which left my taste buds in awe.

The Sanduíche De Steak Brasileiro, Steak Sandwich (S$19.90) was so loaded with charcoal barbecued beef ribs with cheese sprinklings, that it demanded a plate to handle the overflow of meat.

Before feasting on the sandwich, I couldn’t resist diving straight into the chunks of beef by the side. There was an ideal meat-to-fat ratio, which added a scrumptious layer of creamy sinfulness to the smokey, tender meat, elevating the flavour to new heights.

Throwing dining etiquette out the window, I opted to use my bare hands. Who needs cutlery when you can get your hands dirty and truly enjoy the dish? The baguette, crispy on the outside, fluffy and buttery on the inside, provided the perfect canvas for the succulent beef and melted cheese— a whole new level of indulgence, indeed!

We also tried a few of their starters to accompany our main dishes. The Pão De Queijo (Brazilian Cheese Bread) (S$4.50) was addictively chewy like a mochi, and packed hints of subtle cheese flavour.

casa brazilia lunch menu - cod & soup

The Pastel De Bacalhau (fried cod empanadas(S$5.50) looked like mini golden parcels which were filled with flaky spiced cod and encased within a delightfully flaky and crispy pastry.

The Sopa De Tomate Defumado (smokey tomato soup) (S$6.90) was impeccably smooth and creamy, garnished with drops of olive oil. A baguette ‘cigar’ dressed with a mini tomato and burrata cheese garden was placed artfully by the side, finished with basil leaves and lightly drizzled with balsamic vinegar.

At Casa Brazilia, in addition to serving up delicious dishes, they also offer a whole trove of refreshing and interesting beverages! Direct your gaze to their mini bar counter, where the bartender works his magic with every pour.

The Mace Hortela (S$13) mocktail is a breath of fresh air with refreshing notes of green apple and mint. If you’re seeking a rich chocolate fix, give the indulgent Double Chocolate Chip Caramel Frappuccino (S$9, S$11 with coffee shot) a go. It comes complete with whipped cream and a sprinkling of Lotus Biscoff crumbs. Yum!

The Kiwi Azul (S$13) mocktail was visually stunning with its trio of colours starting with the blueish-purple hues courtesy of the blue pea syrup, then a burst of sunshine as pineapple juice added its golden touch. Finally, a lush layer of green kiwi syrup awaits at the bottom.
