After a tiring day of final moving, we had dinner at Sampaio’s on Burnet. We had a starter of the cheese rolls, and they did not disappoint. We were ravenous from all the moving, so we finished them off pretty quick.
For our entrées, Crystal had the pork tenderloin, and I had the paella. Both were good; the smoke on the tenderloin was excellent, and Crystal had more than enough to take some home for another meal. They were very generous with the paella as well, and the mussels were cooked perfectly: cooked thoroughly but not overdone, retaining a bit of fresh chewiness. For dessert we shared a vanilla flan.
The next time I go, I am determined to try the Camarao ao Molho de Cachaça, as recommended by Rob Balon and numerous others.
