Local residents in London who are interested in trying Brazilian dining should peruse the menu at Rodzio Preto. This Churrascaria, or Brazilian steakhouse, offers customers a South American style, flamboyance and flavour at Battersea. It is a venue especially suitable for diners who look for meaty dishes, with the main focus of the menu being the slow, spit-roasted, high quality meats, which are carved to order at tableside by waiters called 'Passadors'. The lunch and dinner menus offer up to 15 different kinds of roasted meat, giving diners a huge choice. With unlimited servings available, it is a good idea to work up a healthy appetite before visiting. Thankfully, diners can control the pace of the meal by using a two-sided disk. One side of the disk is green, which indicates more meat is required, while the other is red. If the diner turns to the red side, then the passadors know that no meat needs to be taken to the table, until the disk is turned back to green. If a diner can only manage a certain amount of meat in a meal, or he/she is vegetarian, there are other options on the menu for them. Salads, pasta and rice dishes are all available, while Feijoada and Feijao bean stews, made in house, are served at weekends. The restaurant is open from midday until past 11pm every day of the week, with last seating time an hour before closing. Phone and email bookings are taken, with full contact details available at the restaurant's own website.
