Belated Happy Birthday. Please tell us all about the meal at the Brazilian steakhouse.

Oh my goodness...

It was a non-stop parade of meat. They have a card next to your plate that's green-for-go on one side and red-for-stop on the other. When it's flipped up to the green side, the waiters stop by and slice off a hunk of whatever they are carrying. It took a bit of practice to time the flipping of the card. If you don't turn it over quick enough, it's easy to end up with a pile of meat on your platter.

It was all delicious, though. We had sirloin (top and bottom cuts), beef tenderloin, lamb (leg and chops), squab, sausages, pork ribs, and a to-die-for pork medallion thing slathered in cheese sauce. I didn't try everything, but I had plenty.

Wow, that sounds amazing Steve, right there in Minnesota!
I'm remembering the same experience in Rio a few years ago when we were on a tour that happened to include half vegetarians. It was a fabulous experience for us, and not so much for them.

I'd love to go to something like that Steve. They have a Brazilian steakhouse near me, but it has terrible reviews.

Gah! When we went to our first Brazilian steakhouse in Chicago, I wanted to shout, "Meat it stop!"
