I am a big fan of churrascarias and enjoy dining in them. I hope this miserable experience doesn't sour me on this concept of dining in general. The salad bar is a big blah, while they claim to have 50 items on it, none were worthy of note. The usual salad bar items raw veggies, tuna salad, devil eggs, two soups etc - not the reason you are there paying $45 per person. The reason you go to a churrascaria is that you want overwhelming portions of meat, beef in particular. The parade starts out with usual parade of chicken legs, wings and pork ribs - the wings are cooked with a tomatoe BBQ sauce not in the churrascaria style. Next comes the sausage, chunks of turkey etc - this is warm up food, I am wondering where's the beef? Now the beef starts to arrive, prime rib, rib eye, short ribs, pieces of beef slathered with garlic. Well it's all inedible shoe leather has a more user friendly chewing consistency. My plate is beginning to develop a huge pile of fat, grizzle, and inedible scraps of meat. Iam offered a clean plate which I accept. The parade of junk meats starts over from the beginning and am just waving them off. Finally, some one aska if I have special requests I name three beefs and ask if they have any lamb. The parade of junk meats starts for a third time and so does the waving off. Finally they come out with Alegre of lamb, it looks slimey, smells funny and appears to be left over from last Easter. Now comes the meats I requested, and the cutters slice a miniscule tidbit and walk away. Even these meats are full of fat and grizzle and I have a new huge junk pile on my plate. We repeat this farce one more time and I ask for the check and leave.
Now I know how my dogs feel when I give them table scraps and no real food. Considering Amazonia charges the same as Texas De Brazil, I know where I will go in the future, but it is going to take a while to get over this truly miserable meal.
