“Great BBQ enough for 2”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

Went to Komka based on other reviews. A little difficult to find but worth it. One downside was the staff did not speak English but we made do. Received a menu in English but didn't have prices so we asked for the Portuguese menu and worked it out. Having arrived at opening time of 1915 didn't know what to expect. Ordered the Polenta with cheese which was tasty. We also order a chicken and the BBQ pork, beef. We did not need the chicken (had it for lunch the next day) The BBQ was a 2 foot skewer with large chucks of meat, tomatoes and onions. Lots of food and enough to share which later patrons did. Did not try the recommended deserts. Staff was very accomodating Good value for quantity and quality

“Tradition barbecue”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Probably one of the most traditional barbecue served in Porto Alegre. Good prices, nice people (the manager/owner is always there). Suggestions: Picanha, Lombo com queijo and Polenta frita com queijo.

“Very good restaurant in Porto Alegre”
Reviewed 15 June 2013

This is a nice restaurant in Porto Alegre basically known by the locals.
You have to arrive at noon or you will have to wait for a table.
"Polenta" and Äimpim (Yuka) are good starters.
The main course I would recommend any kind of beef.
Fries are good.
Try local dessert "Sagu" prepared with red wine.
