At each table, Gauchos will carve an array of grilled meats, as directed by the guest’s red and green disks that indicate when to bring more meat or when a break is needed. Keith's favorite steak by far was the signature Picanha - a prime cut of top sirloin. The picanha cut is very popular in the churrascarias of Southern Brazil, and here the meat is prepared two different ways: with a traditional light seasoning, and a more robust garlic seasoned version. He also enjoyed other cuts of beef, lamb, pork, and chicken. He recommends you avoid the very outer cuts of the meat, as they tend to be most salty. But the gauchos will try to accommodate your specific requests. Keith also enjoyed the accompanying sauces like chimichurri and salsa.
The meal includes limitless service of traditional Brazilian side dishes, including: pão de queijo (warm cheese bread), garlic mashed potatoes and caramelized bananas.
Lastly, we ended the meal with dessert. After clearing our plates, a platter of the night's options were presented. We chose the Chocolate Mousse Cake. The sweet cream layer was very sweet, and paired well with a small glass of liqueur made from macerated açai, a Brazilian berry.
