"Experience the Churrascaria" Street food, per kilo, general, recipes.... Tip by cwest03

Sao Paulo is known thorough Brazil for their food. If you ask any local what there is to do in Sao Paulo they will tell you to go get something to eat. If you're going to dig in and you think you are hungry enough I highly recommend the Brazilian traditional Churrascaria which is a traditional Brazilian BBQ. Think of it as an all meat buffet that comes to your table. Sure there's veggies and salad but you don't want that healthy stuff to get in the way of all of that beef. Each table is given a little card which has green on one side and red on the other. All you have to remember is when your card shows green the guys with skewers of meat will keep coming to your table to show their goods. Turn it to red and you can sit back and enjoy your meal for a while uninterrupted. When you're ready for more, it's back to green. After a few hours at a Churrascaria you'll be done eating meat for a while as it is more beef than anyone should ever consume in one sitting.

Favorite Dish: well I'll tell you, it's not the salad bar.
