In my first Restaurant Review for Chop Chop Brazilian Steak House I promised I would go back for a second experience. You can read all about my first experience from here. I can safely tell you that going back was a great decision which was greatly influenced by my darling little sister Pineapple. We catch up in person every now and again when we are both free and this time it was her turn to choose a place and we settled for Chop Chop Brazilian Steak House. I have nothing but great things to say today so you might want to read through so that you get address to this place at the end of the blog.
I was the first one to arrive and I had to check and make sure they accepted payment through Ecocash. Thankfully they do and so I happily waltzed in and chose a table for two. When Pineapple arrived we chose a different table and we made ourselves at home. We had a waiter come through to assist us, I can’t possibly forget her name, Samantha, she was very helpful. Before placing any order of sort the first thing we did was ask her to take pictures, for the gram!
Browsing through the menu was an easy decision for me. I don’t like beef so I was scouting for anything but that. I settled for a chicken burger and chips and minutes later Pineapple decided on the same thing. I guess we share the same birthday for a good reason after all. I made sure I showed up on an empty stomach because the agenda of the day was talk about what we have been both up to, what we are planning for the near future and how we are going to to make a mark in the world while enjoying a good meal and indulging in some yummy beverages.
I think this is the biggest burger I have ever had in my life! I had to cut it in half so that I could accommodate it in my mouth. It was fresh, tasty and packed with nothing but goodness. You wouldn’t think it was your ordinary burger, it had “that thing”. The burger was sinfully tasty just thinking about it right now is making me feel hungry all over again. I am very particular about colour on my plate and I can safely say that I was not disappointed. The meal was executed to a tee. I didn’t get to finish my burger by the way. Okay I lie, I left just a bite size but I really couldn’t stomach anymore food. I didn’t even have space for dessert!
For people who were stuffed we surprisingly had space for cocktails. We wanted to try something new and Samantha went and asked the Bar Man to come through and explain to us what each cocktail contained. Like how cool is that? This is already another reason Chop Chop Brazilian Steak House will be my new hang out place. I haven’t had that kind of personalised service before. We settled for Purple Rain cocktails. Not only do they look pretty they taste completely divine! My ears starting getting hot at some point, a good kind of hot. I am not sure if it was me just feeling happy for spending time with Pineapple or the cocktail was taking over, either way it was a wonderful feeling!
We were at Chop Chop Brazilian Steak House till around 9pm. To think we got there in the afternoon around 3pm! I think my second experience was much better than the first because I had great company and a great waitress as well. If Pineapple and I had it our way we could have stayed there till closing time but we had other commitments the next day.
I think it is only right for me to tell you that if you don’t pay a visit to Chop Chop Brazilian Steak House anytime soon you will be doing yourself a serious disservice! It is going to be the hottest place in town and you don’t want to have to make advance bookings to have a taste of the place. Go there today, tomorrow, this weekend but whatever you do make a trip there, it will be worth your while.
The positive things from my second experiences are:
- The use of Ecocash, what a a life saver!
- The waitress Samantha was very attentive and helpful.
- The toilets were clean.
- The ambiance was great.
- The music had that Kizomba feel to it I had to stop myself from getting up and pulling a move or two.
- Compliments to the Chef on this day, the food was amazeballs!
I noticed on their Facebook Page that they now have a Jazz Nite on Wednesdays. I will check it out soon because I always have an excuse to leave the house!
One of the main highlights of Chop Chop Brazilian Restaurant is that unlike many sit-down non fast food restaurants in Zimbabwe, they are open every single day of the week for breakfast, lunch, dinner, coffee and drinks. In addition, everyday, there is a different special on the menu; all you have to do is ask your waiter!
Don’t say you didn’t hear this from me first but… from Saturday the 21st of July, they will be serving a meat platter! It will be going for $30 for 4 kebabs, 2 sausages, 4 wings, 250g sirloin steak and chips. There goes watching my portions!
You can make a reservation online. No need to call or come in just visit www.chopchop.co.zw
On a scale of 0-10, 10 being the best experience ever, I give Chop Chop Brazilian Restaurant a cool 9 out 10. I am so glad I made a second visit, it was worth every minute. If you want to have a sit down at a place with great energy, comfortable sitting area and delicious food then look no further…
