We’ve been enjoying Brazilian BBQ and we’ve been hearing nothing but wonderful things about Gaucho Brazilian Barbecue so we thought we’d give it a try. It’s on the main level of a professional building just North of Chinook Centre on the East side of Macleod Trail. It can be tough to find and there’s really not too many parking spots that are reserved for “visitors”.
We knew we were going to do the Dinner Rodizio which is a Brazilian style serving style where the servers come around with giant skewers of food (the same type) and they’ll cut you off a piece if it’s something you’d like to eat! As well, there is an unlimited salad bar with some other side to accommodate with your dinner! It’s a fun experience! Once you sit down and figure out what you want, a basket of fried polenta came to our table with some sauces. It’s a great appy, but I usually save the room for the ready meat food!
I ordered myself a glass of Limonade which was delicious and refreshing limonade made with limes and it’s zest! It’s great for a hot day or any time!
The other drink we really wanted to try was their Tropical Juice – Cashew Juice and to be honest, it didn’t taste like cashews where in fact, it tasted like guava. It’s no big deal if they gave us the wrong thing, but we’re not sure!
The types of meat the dinner rodizio had was chicken hearts, lamb, parmigiano beef, top sirloin, rump steak, beef ribs, pork loin, sausage, chicken wings, and chicken wrapped with bacon!
At the end of the night, my favourite was probably the chicken hearts and the beef ribs! I had many servings of those! I had at least one of everything and I’ve got to say it was delicious! I wouldn’t mind bringing family and friends here if they were hungry!
