As a person who has loved Brazilian culture for a long time, I was so happy to hear there was a new Brazilian restaurant opening in Prague in May 2019. It’s called Boteko and it’s not only about the modern Brazilian food, there are also Brazilian music nights there!
Our first encounter with this restaurant was on a special occasion – my husband’s birthday. We had organized a small family gathering there, as we both love Brazil, and we were really curious what Boteko could offer.
They did not disappoint. They are starting and learning, so some of the dishes and drinks were sold out, but all the staff really went all the way to please us – when we chose something that was out of stock, the chef came from the kitchen to say sorry and brought us their PERFECT feijolada for free. All of the staff speaks Portuguese and English (and some of them Czech 🙂 ) and they are so polite and nice you want to eat and drink all they can offer and then some more. All the dishes we had were just perfect. Shrimp, burgers, starters, desserts… and capirinhas!
Boteko’s final menu is still somehow under construction but don’t be afraid to try anything they offer. It is just worth it, and you’ll get the warm south American vibe as a bonus.
