Chima Gets No Bells

Craig LaBan pounds Chima’s oversalted, over-cooked all you can eat Brazilian meats.

The garlic-rubbed top sirloin, meanwhile, was embalmed in a puree of allium so thick it sizzled like pungent white foam on the meat and curled my nose hairs before taking a bite. When we did, it was so wrong all four of us at the table spit it out simultaneously – including a neighbor who eats raw garlic daily for pleasure. This was the single worst morsel of food I’ve tried to eat all year.
