Flack: (Saving) On Expenses - Fazenda Rodizio Bar & Grill, Leeds

Reviewer: Richard Hamer, founder, Blue Sky PR

What is it good for?

Fazenda is a meat eaters' delight, with chefs serving up to 15 different cuts of beef, pork, lamb and chicken at your table. It is inspired by the traditional 19th century Brazilian churrasco barbecue, where gaucho chiefs would pierce large pieces of meat on skewers and then slowly grill them over open-flamed pits on the plains. But, fear not veggies, the riverside restaurant also boasts a well-stocked salad bar - and I mean well-stocked - with about 30 options.

Signature dishes

Picanha is a prime cut of top sirloin. Its cut is very popular in the churrascarias of southern Brazil. Fazenda prepares picanha two different ways; with a traditional light seasoning and the more robust chimichurri variety.

Who's the boss?

Seasoned restaurateur Robert Melman is the owner, while fellow Argentine Tomas Maunier runs the place day to day.

What's the damage?

Lunch is £13.95 for a selection of eight cuts of meat. Dinner costs £23.95 (Sunday to Thursday) and £25.95 (Friday and Saturday).
