Head to Gaucho’s where they bring the spice and zest of Brazil to the Canadian Rockies.
This “Churrascaria” is a traditional style Brazilian steakhouse where you pay a set price and are served until you are satisfied. It’s a bright, cheery, open concept restaurant with a patio-like setting at the front where you can view passers-by or enjoy the picturesque mountain views. Adorned with simple “Latin cowboy” art and with waiters attired as Brazilian Gauchos, the restaurant boasts an open kitchen at the rear of the room where you can view all the meat offerings slowly roasting to perfection, seasoned and smoked up until they’re tender, along with traditional and unique sides so each guest can tailor their dish. A perfect All-You-Can-Eat buffet, served Rodizio style where the gauchos can help you select the best parts and carve it at your table.
The vast salad and side bar includes a variety of fresh cut vegetables, salads and hot dishes such as the Feijoada, black beans with beef and pork, mustard potato au gratin, rice with olive oil, garlic and bay leaf and rich and creamy Chicken Stroganoff Brasileiro to name only a few. We took our plate up repeatedly to enjoy these bold, vibrant dishes.
Deeply satisfied but anticipating the meat dishes, we watched and chose our selections of quality meats as they were brought to the table “rodizio-style”. This is where the “passadors” (meat carvers) roam from table to table slicing the enticingly extensive selection of marinated and grilled meats with delicious choices such as Bacon Wrapped Chicken, Pork, Sausage, Lamb, and a variety of tender beef cuts speared by huge sword-like skewers on which they are cooked, each morsel moist and delectably grilled. Two of our favourites were the Parmesan Beef, marinated and Parmesan crusted, and the Chicken Wings, where the fat melts away on the rotisserie and offers up a tender meaty bite.
With such mouth-watering meats and accompaniments you can’t help but be completely satisfied with this wonderful authentic spread that doesn’t stop until you turn your card over from green to red. If dropping by for a quick bite, you don’t have to choose the churrascaria option as there are à la carte and platter options as well. Leave room for dessert: the Flan is superb. Made in-house and large enough to share, this is the real deal.
