A meaty dinner at Fogo de Chão
We arrived in Rio on a Monday afternoon and went straight to our hotel (which I will show you soon, promise). It got dark pretty quickly and as we were still new to the city and area we didn't want to walk around just yet. A friend of mine had recommended the restaurant Fogo de Chão a while back and so we decided to go there for dinner.We got ready in our amazing suite and I dressed up for the occasion, heels and all.
The restaurant was HUGE
We got a seat without reservation (low tourist season and also a Monday) and were given pao de queijo (cheese bread) and polenta fries
On to the buffet.. omg
This was not even half of it.. insane
My first plate..
I never know what to eat so I take a little bit of everything. Lots of veggies, potatoes, feijoada (bean stew) and more veggies
Lot's of meat. The waiters comes around with lots of various cuts of meat on a sword (no joke). The green thing you see under the plate means it's a "go" for meat. The other side is red and means "no more". The cow shaped paper has all the various cuts shown with description - quite handy!
Don't know how I was standing after all that food
Review? We really liked the restaurant. After spending another 6 days in Rio we learnt that it was pretty overpriced but you definitely pay for the experience. The service was amazing, pretty interior, amazing food - Those are things I'll happily pay more for every now and again!
