Churrascaria has long been associated with the roasting of poorer quality meats for hours till it becomes so tender, ideal for the masses with the limited budget. However in Singapore, it has been associated with a mid to high end market segment, and many of the churrascaria here offer good quality meats instead of the usual beef ass (rum) to justify the price.
At a recent tasting, I had the chance to check out Senor Santos, the latest entrant into this market. The vibe is a nice slightly dark setting like a steakhouse. Down to the food, I recommend starting with the salad bar. Yes, you heard it right, start with the greens. They have an interesting assortment of items (many with middle eastern influences) on the salad bar, one of which is the cod. Yes, it is rare that one sees such good quality fish on a salad bar.
Down to the meat most of the items I tried were done well from the beef, to the chicken and the fish. If you like something rich with some level of grease, go for the beef hump. However, my favourite has to be the medium rare tenderloin, with juices intact. It's a must try here.
Wash all of it down with the lime caipirinha, which is a really refreshing on a hot sunny day..
The conclusion after a heavy lunch: This has to be one of the better churrascaria in town.
