Sao Paulo: Churiscaria

One of the things we knew we had to experience while in Brazil was a traditional Brazilian steakhouse. We asked one of our guides for a recommendation and he took us to a Churasciarria where we ate our fill of every cut of beef, pork, chicken and lamb you can imagine. Here are a few photos of the gluttonous event.

You start with a trip to the 'salad bar' which is a complete understatement. As you can see, the buffet was huge and has every condiment, salad, cheese and bread you could imagine.
And as if that wasn't enough, the gauchos kept bringing sides to the table, whether we wanted them or not. Garlic bread, cheese puffs, french fries, fried banana ...
The highlight, of course, was the cut after cut of beef they brought around to your table. You were given a little card with green on one side (showing you wanted more) and red on the other (to communicate you were resting). This gaucho let me take his photo - that's prime rib he's shaving off for us.
One would think that after all that food I wouldn't have room for dessert, but that would be to admit you don't know me very well. And as you can see, they served the desserts like everything else ... in excessive quantity!
The meat cooking and dripping fat in the front window - enticing visitors.
Brian laughed, but I just had to get a shot of the bathroom. Look closer and you'll see that there are two dental floss dispensers on the wall along with the Listerine. They really have thought of everything. :)
