This Brazilian eatery has been making its rounds across social media. Bringing together class and extravagance, the restaurant prides itself on its premium meat as well and their beautiful decor that is fit for any occasion. From celebrations to professions of love, it's a great place to hang out and enjoy some great food with great company.

Another reason why it's been catching others attention (and ours too!) is the halal status of the restaurant. So what is it?

  2. No pork, lard or alcohol is used in their cooking
  3. All the meat used are 100% halal as well
