Day 239-Nutritional Bite


Churrascaria (pron. shoe-hoss-korea) translates as barbecue in Portuguese, while Rodizio means rotating, referring to their unique style of service. The experienced passadors (meat carvers) pass from table to table slicing different cuts of meat from skewers onto your plate. At Churrascaria, the selection of meat is extensive: leg of lamb, beef in a variety of cuts from silverside to picanha, the heart of the rump, pork tenderloin, sausage, chicken thighs and chicken wings as well as authentic specialities such as chicken hearts. You can also help yourself to the vast array of traditional Brazilian hot dishes and exotic salads available on the buffet--all freshly made to time-honored recipes. You will be served all night with freshly grilled meats until you can eat no more. A pure carnivore’s delight!

Sugar Preacher's Experience

Tonight, I was in complete disgust as I dined at a Churrascaria. It was my brother's b-day! I watched blood and juice run onto the plates, and the waiters running from table to to table. The whole experience seemed like a chaotic mess. I was mostly bothered with gluttonous eating that is typical at buffets. Avoid buffets and Churrascarias like a plague unless you want to gain a few pounds!

I was there also and I was sick to my stomach that evening. I ate so much I couldn't hold it down. All you can eat is a BAD idea!
