I've been to one, but I found it to be too much food, in this weird gluttony encouraging way to make it worth the money, etc.Y’all fellow meat lovers need to find and dine in a Brazillian churrascaria at some point. As much as I love a good prime rib or ribeye steak at a top steakhouse, I consider a churrascaria to be an equally epicurean delight for carnivores.
For those who don’t know, the typical setup- at least in the American versions- is an all-you-can-eat upscale salad & soup bar in the middle of the restaurant, and a wandering squadron of waiters who deliver meat on skewers to be sliced off onto your plate...also as much as you can cram down your gullet. They’ll keep bringing you meat and slicing it off with their sharp, machete-sized knives as long as you keep signaling them so to do. Each restaurant is a little different, but a typical one will have between 1-2 dozen different meats, covering various presentations of poultry, beef, pork and lamb, and sometime some more exotic things.
My buds and I have tried a bunch of them around Dallas/Ft. Worth, and we don’t really have favorites. Each has something ridiculously good, so when we decide to hit one, we pick on the basis of what particular dish we want…or simply which one is most convenient, because damn if they aren’t all good.
It's not for me.
