Brazilian eatery Xodó is bringing a large, juicy slice of Rio to Cairo and is shaping up to be one of the most unique additions to the Cairo's dining scene about the Four Seasons First Nile Boat.
Sitting pretty on the Nile aboard the world’s first Four Seasons First Nile Boat and Four Seasons Hotel Cairo at the First Residence’s Brazilian eatery, Xodó, is bringing a large, juicy slice of Rio to Cairo and is shaping up to be one of the most unique additions to the city’s already colourful dining scene.
As one of several high-concept restaurants set to open on the First Nile Boat, Xodó fuses the tradition of Brazilian cuisine with the contemporary dining experience that the First Nile Boat to be known for – and yes, they do the whole grilled-meat-on-a-skewer thing we’ve all drooled at on TV.
But here’s where it shines: churrascaria. What’s that? Only a staple in the South American nation’s cuisine and sees staff cut succulent strips of beef and chicken off of a sizzling skewer and straight onto your plate while gobble them down with your favourite drinks. The menu boasts an eclectic variety of appetisers and fresh salads that are still very much rooted in Brazilian flavours, and it’s all down to a man who knows a thing or two about Brazilian cuisine. Having spent almost half of his life perfecting his own brand of modern Brazilian food, acclaimed Chef Guilherme Reis brings a wealth of experience and a creatively contemporary approach all the way from Säo Paulo.
“I grew up in a humble environment where simple ingredients were used in every home, so I learned over the years to use these ingredients and elevate them to renowned five star signature dishes,” the Säo Paolo native tells CairoScene. “Coming from a traditional Brazilian family, most of our celebrations are centred on food, herbs and spices.”
Some of the new menu's highlights include Australian lamb chops, American beef tenderloin with Parmesan cheese, beef ribeye, beef striploin, veal chops and beef ribs. In other words, it's every meat lovers' fantasy come to life.
