We enter the place and the hostess, and owner, seats us. He explains the concept of the restaurant. You start off at the "buffet" of non meat items... and off I go to the buffet to fill up on salads and side dishes. The salad bar was pretty basic. They have the typical romaine mix, iceberg mix and side salads like pasta salad, tuna salad, cucumber and tomato salad and shockingly tabouleh which I actually ate. They also a hot food side with some Brazilian and American side dishes like black beans, mashed potatoes, rice, sauteed zucchini and other stuff including curry chicken soup.
I ordered the traditional Brazilian capirinha drink, it's made with cachaca which is basically sugarcane rum. It's good and it is quickly becoming one of my favorite "spirits"...heehee! A bit on the strong side so be careful!
Holy meat lover special! This is a low carb lovers dream! The cost for the dinner is $29.95, not including my drinks or tip. If your a big eater I think it is quite a deal! Would I return? Maybe... I felt like I had to eat and eat to make it seem worth it. I am more into small plates, and lots of them!
The gauchos start coming around with the meat. You have to put up this wooden block to green if you want meat or not, red to stop the meat flow. The first meat to the table was the Pichannha Special Beef (I assume it was a filet mignon, they gave very small pieces) it was very tender, melted in my mouth - my favorite of the night! I also had lamb, spicy chicken, Parmesan chicken and sausage. They serve 15 types of meat but I was too full to try anything else...
