Sorry for the poor quality photos, these were taken with my iphone! I’m sure the waiters thought I was nuts taking pictures lf them each time they brought a new item by.
We started off with a yummy fried banana appetizer. They were so yummy my daughter asked why they eat dessert first in Brazil!
If you’ve never been to Rodizio’s before, you have to give it a try! They don’t have a menu there. Instead they offer a yummy salad bar, then waiters walk around with skewers of all kinds of different meats and Brazilian treats to try.
One of the kids favorites was the grilled pineapple. We also tried bacon wrapped turkey, various sirloin style meats, grilled mahi-mahi with red peppers, roasted pork tenderloin, grilled tomatoes, garlic filet, Brazilian pot roast, and the least favorite of the bunch grilled Chicken Hearts with Lime. My husband was the only one brave enough to try it.
We also drank Guarana juice. The Guarana berry only grows in the Amazon basin of Brazil. They are used as a dietary supplement and effective stimulant. And if I’d known at the time that the Guarana berry contains twice the caffeine as a coffee bean, I’d NEVER have allowed it! Oops, oh well, it seemed like a fun idea at the time.
Then there was the dessert, a yummy Carmel covered ice cream dessert surrounded by a super moist chocolate cake and grilled bananas. That’s the Teeny Tot doing her best to get more. She literally started screaming for joy when she saw it!
And with our bellies full of more Brazilian cuisine then we could handle, we waddled off to our car bidding fair well to Brazil!
