We're celebrating the launch of the Carnaval Bruch at Temakinho with a star studded party, salsa dancers, bottomless cocktails and fusion sushi.
Located on Old Compton Street in Soho, Temakinho is a fusion between Japanese and Brazilian cuisines.
It may have been a rainy outside but we were feeling the Brazilian vibes inside with tropical decor, parrots and exotic cocktails.
In true Brazilian style, bottomless Caipirinhas were served with even more exotic offerings being shaken up behind the bar.
Sip on a Mango & Pineapple Caipirinha, Old Fashioned or Fruity Whisper - there's a cocktail for every taste.
"It was the Brazilian dancing for me, oh and the margaritas are a must" - Victoria Winterford
Entertainment was provided throughout with samba performances by the gorgeous SASS Productions dancers.
Brunch began with Ceviche with redfish marinated in tiger milk topped with cancha toasted corn, chilli, ginger and coriander.
Guests included Love Island stars Priscilla Anyabu, Rachel Finni, Becca Edwards from Ex On The Beach, Vanessa Sophia Hill, fitness model Kirby Anne Akindeinde, Zaynah, Shri Shelar, and Brendon Hansford.

It was then time to tuck into Mini Temakis and Mini Tartares with yellowtail amberjack, avocado, lime, ginger and olive oil; tuna, avocado, yuzu mayo and tobiko or salmon, Philadelphia, avocado, fish roe and almond flakes.
The guestlist was the perfect mix of celebrities and food blogging superstars with a vegan menu also available featuring Veggie Tempura, Tofu Steak a beautiful Violeta Sushi Roll and Passionfruit Cheesecake.
Brazilian Beef was on the menu with Picanha Skewers served with a chilli tomato vinaigrette & toasted cassava farofa and Gunkan with beef bulgogi, mango & sushi rice wrapped in nori.

The mini sushi roll platter included the Pioneiro with salmon tartare, avocado, seared salmon and caviar, the Spicy Tuna with tuna tartare, fish roe and sriracha and, our favourite, the Teriyaki Prawn & Salmao with crispy prawn, salmon, spicy mayo, teriyaki and sesame.
