Tushar Brazilian Express Grand Opening
Locally owned Tushar Brazilian Express is set to celebrate in style with their grand opening on October 19th, starting at 7pm. This “different view of Brazil,” as Tushar managing owner Wagner Ribeiro describes it, features modern cuisine with fresh, natural ingredients and traditional Brazilian food and dessert. “Tushar is unlike any other dining establishment in the region,” says Alacy Monteiro, Wagner’s partner. “We are offering an express approach that emphasizes Brazilian cuisine,” he adds, referencing Tushar’s commitment to offering traditional food without the traditional ‘carnival’ atmosphere at other Brazilian eateries.
The menu focuses on single serving meals with plates ranging from $7-13 and Brazilian appetizers in the $3 range. There are many gluten free and vegetarian options to choose from as well. Family meals for 4 start at $25 and feature multiple choices of pork and chicken skewers plus a host of different sides like veggies, rice, beans, and mashed potatoes.
To celebrate their grand opening, Tushar has prepared multiple free activities and free samples for the general public starting at 7pm. See their Facebook page for complete information.
Tasty treats on offer include: grilled cheese skewers, cheese bread, fried bananas and Caju juice (a traditional sweet Brazilian drink). Random gift cards to Bohme Boutique and Tushar will be given out every hour, along with 3 grand prize Vacation packages worth $150 each. Later in the evening vocal artists Ikaika and Ashley Hess will perform while more prizes and samples are given away.
