Barbacoa: as much churrascoas you can eat

meat

It's the traditional Sunday feast when all Brazilians meet to share a ‘churrasco'.

Arriving in Brazil, the Portuguese discovered how the Indians cooked meats. This tradition, which gave its name to the barbecue, is the ‘churrasco'. It is inconceivable that you could come to Brazil and not taste it. In this restaurant, famous for the quality of its cuts of beef, you can eat as much as you want of the meats or the salads that accompany them. The waiters run regularly between the tables to constantly refill them so feel free to ask for the cuts you prefer. If necessary, use the menu that is on the table.

Brazilians have a special way of cutting meat, so suddenly, the pieces are different. One of the best? The picanha. It comes from the upper part of the thigh and looks like a duck breast. It has a slightly nutty taste and is very velvety. You may accompany this with some Casa Valduga, the house wine. Bom apetite!
