Stockings, sprouts and terrible Secret Santa gifts are all essential parts of the traditional British Christmas.
Ever wish for something with a little more Latin cha-cha-cha?
A bit more samba, sunshine and spice perhaps?
Today’s Big Deal with Edinburgh’s Boteco do Brasil is the perfect way to give your Christmas season a carnival flavour.
Edinburgh’s answer to the Copacabana
Located on Lothian Street in the Old Town, Edinburgh’s answer to the Copacabana, Boteco Do Brasil is home to a wide range of traditional Brazilian dishes, unique cocktails and colourful decor.
With a large tapas menu, visitors can sample the true taste of Brazil as well as enjoying brilliant Brazilian music in the evenings.
Wham’s Last Christmas will never quite do the trick after your ears have had the pleasure of some banging batucada.
Seven days a week
Available seven days a week until the 23rd of December, this offer is for two people to share five tapas plus two desserts from the a la carte menu at Boteco do Brasil.
With eighteen different tapas to choose from, there is plenty of opportunity to explore all the flavours of Brazil.
From prawn pastry parcels to chouriço sausages served with cassava via deep-fried chicken thighs with Brazilian spices, the menu is sure to get your taste buds tingling.
Be sure to leave a little space for desserts such as the passion fruit mousse, chocolate truffles or the chef’s dessert of the day.
After work bite
If you have never tried Brazilian food then this Boteco do Brasil Big Deal is the perfect introduction.
This offer would be ideal for lunch, an evening out with friends or a rest and relaxation stop during a marathon Christmas shop.
Perhaps dangerously, it would also be great for an afterwork bite.
Just don’t blame us if you head along at half five and find yourself showing off your salsa moves on the dance floor several hours later.
