Boteco Brasil (Re-Visit)


On another trip to Boteco Basil on Nanaimo Street and Broadway, I ordered the traditional Brazilian dishes.

First up, the Coxinhas, which is a popular Brazilian snack: crispy potato-based dough pockets stuffed with shredded chicken and spices. I couldn’t finish because I’m a small eater – this appetizer was very filling.


Next up was the Picanha, which is Brazilian sirloin steak. It’s a dish served with basmati rice, brown beans, and fried banana, among other things.


Very filling – both dishes – but at least it was a chance to try out the popular Brazilian dishes.
