We’ve been talking a lot about the Food and Wine Festival that’s going on at Busch Gardens theme park in Williamsburg, Virginia.  And not just in our Busch Gardens Food and Wine Festival Guide.

We’ve been talking about it for good reason.  It is a really great festival featuring a menu with over 150 food and drink options.  They are spread throughout the park in eighteen different booths.

Each booth has a different theme.  Usually, it has something to do with a specific area, such as Africa or Mexico.  We’ve recently reviewed the Jamaica booth and the Turkey booth.  But today we want to talk about the Brazil booth!

I am a big fan of the Brazil booth.  You can find it is the New France section of the park.

There are a couple of ways to get to this section.  When you enter the park, walk through the England section.  Then you can turn right and walk through the Ireland section, then the France section, and then you’re at the New France section.

But you could also take the train here because it is right by the Caribou Train Station.  That means you could take the train either from the Scotland train station (which is close to the front of the park) or the Festa Italia train section.

And you’ll be happy once you get to the Brazil section.  After all, check out what is on the menu.

Brazil Menu

The menu has a bit of something for everyone.  Looking for some meat?  Try the Churrasco, which is Grilled Beef topped with Chimichurri Sauce, or the Linguiça, which contains Grilled Sausage, Peppers, and Portabella Mushrooms.

Want a vegetarian option?  There’s Arroz Doce Cremoso, which is a Coconut Rice Pudding with Cinnamon, or Abacaxi, which is Grilled Pineapple topped with Coconut Caramel Sauce.

Love wine?  The wines here definitely have those South American vibes.  Try Mayu Pedro Ximenez, a Chilean white wine, or the Argentian New Age White Torrontes Blend.

The cocktail Mango Caipirinha consists of Cachaça, Lime, and Mango.  And if you want a non-alcoholic beverage, then try the Brazilian Lemonade, which has Frozen Limeade with Sweetened Condensed Milk.

So now that you know what the menu items are, you may wonder, what did we like?  What did we not like?  Well, we’ll tell you what we liked best, what we were split on, and what we didn’t like.

But full disclosure before I begin: I do not eat Brazilian foods on a regular basis, and that may affect what I liked and didn’t like.  If you eat Brazilian foods on a more regular basis and are more familiar with their flavors, you could have a very different opinion than mine.

Best Menu Item

Of all the menu items at Brazil, my family loved the Churrasco best.

It was just so good!  The sauce especially was the best part.  It just made the whole dish, even for those in my family who aren’t as big of beef fans.  They did a great job with the sauce and it was the perfect blend of flavors.

Items We Were Most Mixed On

On the other hand, we were mixed on the blend of flavors with the Arroz Doce Cremoso.

Busch Gardens Williamsburg Food & Wine Festival serves delicious food like the A picture of the Arroz Doce Cremoso dessert item pictured here.

Now, the Arroz Doce Cremoso is a brand new menu item this year, and I was very excited to try it.  But for me, there was a specific taste that I did not recognize that I did not care for.  On the other hand, someone else in my family liked it.  So we really were quite mixed on it.

Items We Would Pass On

But one item we could agree on not liking was the Abacaxi.

And this was a shame since I love pineapple, coconuts, and caramel sauce.  But there was a spiciness to it that I did not care for.  The pineapple itself was also a bit hard.  So if you were looking to skip an item, this would probably be the one I personally would skip.
