What's For Lunch? Brazilian Chicken At Galeto, Soho

Probably the best thing about new Brazilian restaurant Galeto ('little chicken' in Portuguese) is the decor.

Not that the food is bad. Their stand-out dish is a half chicken (pictured) marinated in a blend of spices for 24 hours and served with a side of chips and a molho, or sauce, of your choice: we went for the spicy coriander which, despite its name and vibrant green colouring, wasn't particularly picante. Fortunately, a healthy splash of pimento salsa took care of that, and the chicken itself was good enough, separating easily from the bone and just a touch on the dry side. Our only real criticism was the chips, which were limp and lifeless with little crunch.

But back to that decor. The walls are a riot of Carioca colour which, complemented with the Carnaval-inspired musical selection, makes for a great antidote to another grey London summer.

Galeto is located at 33 Dean Street, Soho and joins a number of new Latin American joints around the area, including Ceviche and La Bodega Negra.

The bill, including a soft drink and tip, came to £11.
