I’ve Finally Had Brazilian Sausage

Alright. Alright. Get your minds out of the gutter. We went to Texas de Brazil over the weekend. We being Cousin Tracy, Jeff, Brian and me.

The restaurant has a massive salad bar that offers a lot more than just salad. You have to be very careful because you can easily get full on the salad bar items and then not have any room for the steak and other meats.

Besides salad, they have their signature lobster bisque soup (which was delicious), all sorts of breads and cheeses, some sushi, smoked salmon, smoked prosciutto, grilled provolone, cooked shrimp, Greek olives… I can’t even name them all because there were like 50 different items in the salad buffet. Maybe more than 50. It was wild. I should have taken pictures of it, but didn’t want to draw too much attention. It was a bit of a fancy place after all.

Here’s Brian enjoying some smoke prosciutto.

I was very happy to find that they had rice because, as you all know, I like to eat rice with all of my meals. The Brazilian black beans dish was yummy. It had great flavor and went really well with my white rice.

Jeff, aka “Mustache Man” (that’s what Vicky’s daughter Faith kept calling him), waiting for some meat.

It was very good. As was everything else that I tried.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the restaurant (we don’t have one here in Wichita, but they are all over Texas), it’s a Brazilian steakhouse where the meat-men (I guess they’re supposed to be gauchos) come to your table with these big hunks of meat on a stick and they just slice you off a piece of your choosing. You have these little round cards that are green on one side and red on the other. If you want the meat-men to come, you just put it on the green side. If you want some privacy or want to be left alone, you just turn it on the red side and then they don’t bother you. I think the closest thing we have to Texas de Brazil is Fogo de Chao, which is at least three hours away. I really wish we had a place like this in Wichita, because it’s actually kind of fun. Makes for an interactive dining experience.

They were making fun of me because I kept my little disc on green even though I didn’t want any more food. I just wanted the meat-men to keep coming so I could take photos. Since I couldn’t eat everything, I wanted to make sure I at least got a photo. I think I got a photo of every single meat they offered except for the ribs. I didn’t get a photo of it and thought that someone would come back by with some ribs, but no one ever did.

I could have easily eaten everything in sight, but I behaved myself. If I did, I would have surely passed out and Brian would not have been a happy camper. Specially since he needed my help to navigate out of downtown Fort Worth. LOL.

Anyway, Texas de Brazil is something else and definitely worth checking out. My advice, take it easy on the salad bar and save room for all the savory meats. There was offered various cuts of beef, pork, chicken, lamb, bacon wrapped meats, breaded meats, sausage, ribs… It’s pretty insane. Definitely come hungry!
