What we’ve been up to… Cabana

The World Cup taking place in Brazil this year has naturally sparked a renewed interest in all things cultural about the country – including the food. So it was with delight that TCé got to try a hip kind of Brazilian food experience in town with an invite to Cabana – a rapidly-expanding chain which as of last month, opened its fifth branch on Islington’s Upper Street. It’d seem that its popularity comes down to the fact that while it attempts to stay as culinarily authentic as possible with the street food and barbecue (our food on the evening was easily two thumbs up), it doesn’t shy away from the trendy relishes, top-notch customer service and Western accessibility that have made Nandos and Wahaca widely successful in recent years, making this a choice destination for a fuss-free Friday night out with friends. To kick off, we recommend the crispy cheese pastels or pulled pork sliders, while anything from the spicey malagueta chicken skewers to a generous plate of ribs will have your tastebuds thanking you later. Oh, and the caipirinhas and Cachaça cocktails won’t disappoint – try a flaming kiwi version or the proud Dream Team 1970 (made with Cachaça, green chartreuse liqueur, fresh passionfruit, vanilla and citrus topped up with prosecco) if you’re feeling adventurous.
