"Buffet all the way" Brazil Restaurant Tip by Interlingua

Brazil Restaurants: 129 reviews and 93 photos

At first, Brazilian food gave me some problems: too much meat, too little variety, too much money. But after a couple of days, I got around to going to a lunch buffet. It was like Alice in Wonderland. How could so much good food be so cheap? It just seemed topsy-turvy. For just 4 or 5 reis, you got a platefull of food. Beef stew, grilled chicken, a dozen tropical fruits, rice, bread, salad, sausage and eggs, fruit juices, and lots of things I'll let you use a dictionary to understand (farofa, maracujŠ).

Just remember that many of these buffets close at 2:30 or 3:00 and often are not open on the weekends. But be sure to make a buffet your restaurant of choice and lunch your main meal of the day.
