The heart of Brazilian cuisine lies in its ingredients and preparation methods, and at Estabulo, we honour these traditions. From the Picanha, the cap of rump that embodies the richness of Brazilian beef, to the Alcatra, a rump steak that beautifully marries simplicity with depth of flavour. We serve a range of dishes that span across the spectrum of Brazil’s culinary tradition.
1. Picanha (Cap of Rump, 209 Kcal)
Our Picanha, the cap of rump, is not merely a dish; it’s an experience in itself.

Each slice is a tender morsel that simply melts in your mouth, leaving behind a trace of rich, meaty savouriness. Imagine sitting by the Brazilian seaside, the tantalising aroma of the grilled Picanha filling the air – that’s the experience our Picanha promises with each bite.
2. Alcatra (Rump, 180 Kcal)
Next on our lunch menu is the Alcatra, the epitome of authentic Brazilian flavours.

Our Carneiro, seasoned minted lamb, is a real showstopper. Each serving is a carefully curated combination of tender lamb, fragrant mint, and other exotic seasonings.

6. Filé Mignon (Fillet Steak, 173 Kcal)
