Brazilian Steak Houses offer the typical Brazilian barbecue - churrasco, which is composed of whole cuts of meat that are skewed and barbecued in a “churrasqueira” constructed of bricks. The meat is barbecued and then brought to the table, in a service called a rodízio.
Passadores (meat waiters) wander around the establishment, each person handling a specific cut of meat. They come to your table with a specific meat and each individual can then either elect to take some of the food or pass. For the inexperienced it can become quite an staggering experience as skewer upon skewer is brought to the table.
Various kinds of meat are brought around, commonly various cuts of beef, pork, lamb, chicken, duck, seafood, sausage, or any other local types of meats. Be sure to checkout the barbecued pineapple with cinnamon and sugar!
The “churrascarias” typically provide, complimentary to the meat, an all-you-can-eat buffet. Normally, the buffet serves salads, rice, beans, and some fish stew. Often, these establishments also offer pao-de-queijo (similar to biscuit, but with a cheese infused bread. The bread is made of tapioca flour and cheese), and deep fried banana (typical Brazilian treats). They also offer Brazilian desserts, such as pudim de leite (milk pudding), passion fruit mousse, quindim (a sweet treat made of egg yolk, sugar, and coconut), and brigadeiro (made of chocolate, condensed milk, eggs, and sugar). It is absolutely worth saving room for dessert, if you can!
