Brazilian Churrascaria @ Samba Brazilian Steak House

There’s nothing more appealing, than having a bevy of men serve you slow-cooked, flame-grilled meat on skewers, sliced and served on the spot, is there?

The smell of charred steak, and a bloody center, as a handsome slice flops onto your plate.. nope, there is nothing like it, at all.

And though Churrasco means ‘barbecue’ in Portuguese, you won’t be seeing any barbecue sauce on your meat (thank god for that..)  –  just the most exquisite cuts of the cow, flavored with sea salt and cooked on a super hot grill is all it takes to make a perfect steak around here.

Look out for the Picanha. It’s perfectly charred, rare at the center, and it is just a bloody gorgeous cut of the steak. The Brazilian tradition of grilling Picanha (i.e. the top rump of the cow), is 100% authentic churrasco.

It has a beautiful layer of fat.  It is not a muscle that moves much on a cow, and so, remains tender.  The picanha’s blanket of fat lends the meat flavor and juiciness which stops it from getting too dry during grilling. It is amazing!  I’d just save stomach space for this alone, if I were you.

And if your eyes grow huge, just looking at the quantity and variety of cuts of meat that pass by your table, I wouldn’t blame you. Passadores, as the meat servers are called, offer a seemingly unlimited number of cuts of meat, each presented on a large skewer. You need to just flip a plastic coin on the table (red for no, green for yes) to say if you want anymore of a serving.

Delicious freshly BBQed Cinnamon Pineapple.. so sweet.. this was the bomb. It went well with everything!

A must have here is the Caipiriñha… a Brazilian cocktail similar to a Mojito, but way sweeter and definitely more potent. Made from lime juice, sugar, and cachaça, distilled Brazilian sugar cane juice, if the alcohol doesn’t give you a buzz, rest assured the sugar will!
