Oh. My. Lord. I think we died and went to (Paleo) heaven.
Fogo de Chao, Churrascaria (Brazillian Steakhouse) extraordinaire.
This place was amazing. You must check it out if there is one in your city!
Posted on Facebook about our experience:
Stick a fork in us and ROLL us back to the car ’cause we’re done.
We tried about 8-10 of the 17 meat varieties they were serving and were so stuffed we just couldn’t go on – which is unheard of for Hubby!
The experience begins with a huge salad bar and evolves into a scrumptious meat-feast where the gracious servers (Gauchos) bring large skewers of roasted meats to your table and slice a bit off for you. Saturday they were serving 17 kinds of beef, pork, lamb and chicken.
I was assured by the staff that all meats except the chicken legs are gluten-free! Yippee! And most of the salad bar as well – anything with gluten is obvious (bread, pasta, etc) with no hidden gluten-containing ingredients. Wow! Some items had dairy; but those were also obvious, so we could easily self-select.
It was quite the feast (as reflected by the price) and worth every penny! Repeatedly, our eyes rolled to the back of our heads in bliss as we chewed each tender roasted morsel.
We are in love.
Planning a return for Hubby’s birthday in September.
