As part of our trip to Toronto, we wanted to participate in the last day of Summerlicious Toronto. We had our eyes set on Brazilian styled barbecue for a long time; therefore, we picked the best there is: Copacabana. Unfortunately, only the Eglinton Avenue location for Copacabana participates in Summerlicious, and we weren’t able to get a reservation on it, so we had to reserve the one on Adelaide Street.
To Adelaide Street!
The interior design is truly gorgeous, if it wasn’t so dark. My Sony A7 II seems to be struggling just a little bit indoors shooting at ISO-6400, but I guess part of the charm is the darker atmosphere. I do wish it was a little bit quieter, as it was almost hard to hear the person sitting directly across from you.
Moving on to food.
I did take pictures of the food, but Paige said they sucked, so I didn’t post them, go blame it on her.
If you like steaks, meat and beef, this is the place for you. For about $50 bucks, it’s an all-you-can-eat fest of all different cuts of various grilled steaks, from Parmesan Filet-Mignon to Cajun Chicken to Grilled Pineapple, everything is fantastic, yet all of them leaves me wanting for something more.
The Parmesan kinda killed the texture and the flavor of the Filet-Mignon; the Pineapple was clearly soaked in sugar water before grilling; the Cajun Chicken was extremely dry. I don’t know if it’s because it’s a Sunday night, but all the little details of the food is a bit off. I feel hard-pressed to justify the price of the dinner here, despite it being a buffet.
Oh well, I guess you’re paying for the atmosphere.
