Food24 parties at... Rodizio in Jozi

If you're looking for a place to let your hair down in Jozi. This is it.

by: Baglett | 22 Apr 2010

Whatever expectations I had about Rodizio went out the window the moment I walked through it (wasn’t looking where I was going). The place is huge, raucous and screams ‘Let’s party!’ This was a place I was not going to take my Gran, but more likely someone who drinks more than me.

Sipping on a deliciously fruity yet dangerously alcoholic cocktail with my favourite little umbrella on the side I perused the extensive menu (FYI – hope you like fish with your fish)

Waiter: What would like to order?
Me: A brazilian

Realising what I had said, I stuffed an already stuffed mushroom (delicious as a starter) in my mouth to stop me saying anything else stupid and let my partner order for me. Two minutes later the manager walked up to our table.

Manager: So Baglett, what did you order?
Me: The Feijoada Brazileira
Manager: Jeepers you’re brave.

Brilliant! I love nothing more than an honest manager. When he warned me of the potential gas I may experience, I pretty much put both my hands in the air and shouted ‘I surrender’.

So it goes without saying that this is not the place you go to rekindle the romance in your relationship. It is a place that you would go to with a huge crew and your intention is to shake a hoof on the dancefloor and then hit the bar. The staff have been trained to find you when you can’t find yourself and the manager is so friendly, whether you like it or not, he will be joining your party.

If you’re planning an office function, bachelor's or just a night out where you’re looking for food, drinks and a dance floor under one roof, give Rodizio a call. Judging by the stories the manager told me as he filled up my cocktail glass for the umpteenth time, this is where you party – Brazilian style.
