Juicy new Brazilian restaurant opens in Lincoln

This story is over

Lots of meat, samba dancing and live music marked the opening of a brand new Brazilian restaurant in Lincoln.

Samba Brazil opened in the former Chimichanga building on the Brayford Waterfront after it closed down just over a year ago.

The grills were fired up and guests enjoyed 14 different kinds of meat, including steak, fish, beef, lamb, turkey, chicken and more.

As well as the meat, the restaurant serves up an unlimited salad bar with fresh vegetables.

Now it is open there are around four to five jobs available for local people.

Paulo Batisda, manager at Samba Brazil, told The Lincolnite: “Samba is always an exciting environment with plenty of fresh food. We set up the restaurant as a buffet and come around with meat on a skewer.”

Samba Brazil was launched first in Peterborough in 2017. It was closed last year, with the manager blaming the location, before moving to Lincoln.
