The churrascarias Brazil
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover The churrascarias

This type of restaurant is also very popular in Brazil. The dishes - mixed salads, meat in a sauce, grilled meat, fish and desserts - are presented in as a buffet. You help yourself, and pay according to the weight of your plate. In general, these establishments are fairly basic, so don't expect anything luxurious. They are like canteens, where locals go to something quick. However, you can also find more upmarket addresses that offer refined recipes around town for a relaxed evening meal.

However, you can also find classier restaurants with refined cuisine on the menu. The prices are relative, so the price per kilo can be twice as much.
