Toro Toro is a masculine-looking restaurant with deep browns and oranges in the colour scheme, complemented by cowhide and horns on the wall. The Friday ‘HolaHola’ brunch is a refined à la carte experience that’s all about the quality of the flavoursome Latin American food coming from the kitchen of Mexican celebrity chef Richard Sandoval. There’s no wandering around buffet stations at this brunch: starters and mains are brought to the table, including tortilla chips and a deliciously fresh guacamole and skewers of juicy, tender beef. Guests can order as much of these as they desire, until the main churrasco course is served, traffic light-style. Diners have a card – red on one side and green on the other – to let the waiters know when they want meat carved onto their plates. This is a great one to show off to visitors.
