Following such great success with their flagship venue in Whitechapel, a mere stone’s throw away from Brick Lane Market, the team from the brilliant Balaio Brazilian Grill have opened a second east London outlet over in Canning Town. Perched along the Barking Road, between both Plaistow and Canning Town, Balaio Brazilian Grill is a popular destination for a meal out amongst the area’s Latin American population and is a great choice for those looking for somewhere fun and different to eat.
The emphasis of the Balaio Brazilian Grill menu is obviously on the amazing grilled meat dishes, and people come from all over the place to sample them once they catch word of the reasonable prices. The Argentinean rump cap steak is probably the star dish of the house whilst the mixed South American grill dishes up a variety of mouth-watering meats to tuck into. Small plates of cassava and slated beef or slices of beef fillet with mixed peppers, caramelised onions, cassava and olives always go down well whilst those looking for a true taste of Brazil should try the fabulous Brazilian black bean and pork stew with greens and cassava. Brazilian style caramel pudding adds a sweet touch to proceedings, whilst a range of classic Brazilian cocktails are on offer to get the party started.
Lots of natural wood features in the dining room of Balaio Brazilian Grill, in keeping with the style of its elder sibling over in Whitechapel. Many dishes are served on rustic wooden slabs to give an authentic appearance. The vibe is fun and lively at this Canning Town eatery and live Brazilian music is often enjoyed by diners.
