We went to Barraco2 (NW10 5NN) on 25/02/2011, and it was such a pleasant suprise. The food was wonderful; freshly cooked and seasoned to perfection.
Starters: Chicken hearts & Brazillian sausage
Mains: Steak, rice and beans & Kebabs, rice and beans
Drinks: Draugh beer & guava juice
The owners were extremely friendly, and the portion sizes were outstandingly good value for money. We thought we would share 2 starters, but really only one was necessary! I was in future suggest either the hearts or sausage acompanies by some bread or something to dip in the juices.
Have already told numerous people about this place, and really cannot wait to go back... after being told about Barraco by a Brazillian guy, he didn't disappoint us with his recommendation.
I had this bookmarked to try because I had not found moqueca in London, after having easy access to it when living in Boston (Inman Square). Yet of course we didn't get around to it until my parents were in town and we needed someplace close.
Even though it's a full Brazilian place, we did only have the moqueca, which was good. A bit salty, but good flavours. We also got a side of spring greens, and then another because they were delicious, if you like garlic.
Overall, I think I'd definitely be back because it's a local place, but I'm not sure I'd make it a regular destination if it weren't so easy to access. Also, I called ahead to make a reservation for 7pm, and they said that was fine, but they were full at 9pm. Brazilians!
Recently someone recommended this little place to me, otherwise I would probably never have found it. Barraco is a Brazilian restaurant and deli tucked away in a little side street just off Kilburn High Road. It seems to be popular with Brazilians - perhaps because this place is not only a restaurant, cafe and bar, but also sells Brazilian products.
Barraco is a nice place offering Brazilian dishes in a relaxed atmosphere. The food is good and not very expensive and you could try some Brazilian specialties.
I really like this quirky, down-to-earth place, especially the little dog that sat by the door to great every guest. Nice touch.
I've been here for dinner several times and I can guarantee for the place's delicious dishes and amazing staff. They serve Brazilian food which is a nice change from all the pizzas and pastas that have popped around the city.
