EATS: Cabana Brazilan Barbeque, Manchester

Warning - do not read this post if you're hungry, I'm now starving after writing it!!

A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to be invited along to the newly opened Cabana Brazilian Barbeque in Manchester’s Corn Exchange.  The Corn Exchange has undergone a radical revamp in the last year, changing from the shopping centre called the Triangle, to now being full of restaurants and bars.






Cabana opened a few months ago, and its ethos is “to share a bit of Brazil” with the Brazilian out look on life of “tudo bem” meaning everything’s good.  The huge space is a real onslaught to the senses, with bright colours, upcycled furniture (I definitely want a denim sofa in my house now!), neon lights, oil drums and even Subbuteo tables.  Having never been to Brazil, if this is what Rio looks like, I think I want to go!




We arrived at 4 after a day of shopping and in all honestly I was just glad to sit down.  There’s 2-4-1 cocktails on offer at all times, but I started with a Red Tail Parrot, a mix of Cachaça, strawberry & passionfruit purées and lime juice topped with Prosecco, as in all honesty, it takes a lot for me to turn down Prosecco, and I wasn’t disappointed.  

With that I ordered some Guaca-Molho, Cabanas take of guacamole if you couldn’t guess.  As someone who loves their guac spicy, this was just what I needed to fix my shopping weary body!

I was torn of what to order for main, but at the waiter’s recommendation, went for the steak in a chilli and cumin sauce, which came on a sword type skewer, which they serve at the table.  



I’ve got to say, it was gorgeous, really tender and flavoursome, and I fell in love with the Malagueta sauce which is on each table.  If you like spicy sauces, you need to try this!  The fries and beans that came with it made it a pretty perfect meal post shopping meal.

  However, I had total food envy at The Redeemer burger, a huge burger with Malagueta mayo, chimichurri, tomato and blackbeans in a brioche bun.  I’ll definitely be ordering that next time!  


Desert was the Cabana cheesecake, which I couldn’t eat cos of my nut allergy, but I’m told it was amazing.  I just had a wine as desert instead!



I’ll definitely be back at Cabana soon, in fact I want to work my way through the menu!  It’s a great place for a meal and cocktails with the girls, and its really chilled, but is definitely the kind of place you can get a bit raucous and they won’t mind!

Thanks to Mark and the team at Cabana for looking after us.  I’ll definitely be back, there’s 2-4-1 cocktails with my name on to drink!
