What are the chances that I would go to a restaurant in one country and then, go to the same in another country? Slim, but not impossible. This is what happened with Fogo De Chao, the churrascaria place I blogged about few months ago: I tried their outpost in New York (post here), before trying one of their restaurants in Sao Paulo. The latter is definitely less spectacular than the restaurant Midtown, but still had a pleasant feel.
In the middle of the room, of course, is the salad bar, with the same big piece of parmigiano reggiano:
But no fried bacon, instead a big ham:
On the table, we got the cards, red to tell the staff that you do not want any meat and green to let them know you are ready!
Similar to the restaurant in New York, as soon as the card was green, we got a bunch of meats!
Here is what I tried:
Shoulder steak and top sirloin:
Prime rib and ribeye:
We also got some Portuguese cheese bread or pao de queijo:
As well as plantains and potatoes:
It was good, but not as good as he one in New York (check my review of Fogo De Chao NY here): the meat, although well cooked, tender and juicy was not as tasty. My colleagues told me that it might be the location; well, I will have to try the other one the next time I go there!
