- 16-hour pulled pork (Prato Grande)
Pulled pork was simply delicious. The pork was so soft and tender and so flavoursome. Not too salty. I would’ve eaten a whole plate of just that.
The beans were cooked nicely with the sauce particularly flavourful. Even though I’m usually not a huge fan, these were quality beans that went well with the rice.
Special mention for the gucamole, which complemented particularly well with the pulled pork. Clearly this is home-made and not out of a jar.
Greek salad was delightful. Very fresh leaves with just the right amount of light dressing and a bit of feta cheese. This is an example of simple food done really well!
Potato salad was a bit ordinary. Yes it was fresh, but otherwise nothing notable.
A pretty good joint for lunch. Fresh, flavourful ingredients that are simply cooked well.
How authentic is the Brazilian food here? I really have no idea, but I know it’s delicious regardless.
Would Penguin Eat Again?
Most definitely! Too bad they are only open for lunch on weekdays.
