Chama Gaucha

Chama Gaucha is a new terrace top restaurant located in the Hotel Radisson, Gachibowli. It is a casual dining restaurant serving the Lebanese and Brazilian cuisines. With live music played by the poolside on the terrace top, this place has an amazing ambiance.I visited this place with a group of fellow bloggers for a tasting/review session. A special menu was curated for the evening which consisted of a full course meal.

We kicked off the evening with Kiwi Cooler, a cool mock tail blended with kiwi crush & sugar syrup, topped with soda and garnished with a cherry. The delightful green color add a pleasant feel to the amazing drink.

To begin with the food, Fattoush was served as a salad. It had toasted pieces of pita bread combined with vegetables. Hot tomato(roasted) soup with Lentils was pleasant to have on a chilly evening.

Among the appetizers, Empanadinhas(Stuffed bread with finely chopped vegetables) is served with green herb sauce. The crispness of the bread crumbs and the tangy flavor of the green herb sauce enhances the taste of the dish. Falafel was average. Lamb Shish Kebab was a chewy, it should have been more softer. Coxinha de Frango is a chicken starter which had the shredded chicken meat covered in dough is deep fried and served with cheese dips.

Mezze is a collection of Hummus, Labneh, Moutabel, Tabouleh and marinated olives served with Pita bread. The pita bread I had here is the best pita I had till date; it is very soft & tender and not heave on the belly.

In the main course, I liked the baked pasta and stuffed bell peppers. Baked pasta served with tomatoes and mozzarella is a perfect dish. Brazilian bean rice was bland and did not carry any flavor. Among the desserts, Tiramisu & Basbousa were good. Basbousa is a traditional Middle Easter sweet cake, made from cooked semolina soaked in simple syrup and topped with a chopped cherry and sliced nuts.

Overall, Chama Gaucha is a nice place to unwind in the evenings in the company of good music and food/drinks served by the poolside.
