Zico’s Brazilian Bar and Grill, Koh Samui Thailand

Look for the sign

Look for the sign

I first ate at Zico’s Brazilian Grill & Bar three years ago.  By happenstance, we wandered in for a drink from the Centara Hotel across the street in Chaweng Beach.  Zico’s is known for its substantial buffet, priced now at 750 baht.  Aside from its good selection of salads, the hit of the evening is the large skewers of meat that the waiters parade by your table, seemingly non-stop.  The meats are barbeque style and Zico’s does an excellent job cooking the meats.  All cuts were succulent and tasty.

We found ourselves at Chaweng Beach last week and I convinced my friends to give Zico’s a  try.

We were met at the entrance and escorted to a large table for the seven of us.  The professional staff explained the menu and the “all you can eat concept” and away we went over to the salad bar.

The salad bar offers numerous choices from pasta salad to couscous to half a dozen or so other prepared salads.   Or you can elect to prepare a do-it-yourself green salad with freshly made salad dressings.  They also offer you a good selection of side orders before the main event.

And as we began to finish our salads, the staff began bringing over large skewers of meat.  First the chorizo sausage came and then the beef and on and on.  Until we cried out “no mas” (no more).

Below are two menus from their website.  (Apparently they rotate the menus.)   As you can see,  the menu is quite extensive and can satisfy anyone’s appetite.  Both times I have been there, they offered Menu Two.  I sampled all the meats and found myself asking for more chorizo (sausage), the beef and pork neck.  Because the selection is wide, your friends can eat something completely different, like barracuda, prawns and chicken.

Bon appetit!

  2. Yeah. Grillled shark. A little dry but the sauces make up for it. Tastes good but am partial to the chorizo, beef and the great salad bar.
