Texas de Brazil – Brazilian Churrascarria Steakhouse Knowledge in San Juan, Puerto Rico


At times you just have to have to get out and indulge for a couple of hours, for what ever cause, in what ever way you decide on. For us, just after 3 months of upheaving our life to sell the boat and the previous quite a few weeks of final preparations to fly back to Europe, we decided to go and let off some steam in the finest way we know how – meals! Mainly because it is generally much more entertaining to share the very good occasions with other individuals, we invited our very good buddy, Orlando, to join us.

Our restaurant of option was the Texas de Brazil Steakhouse in San Juan, just a ten-minute drive from exactly where we’re staying. Whilst neither of us eats a lot of meat just the sake of it any longer, we’re content to indulge when we discover a thing that is specifically unique.

Texas de Brazil is a single of the finest churrascaria restaurants in Puerto Rico and this unique branch has been open for much more than eight years. Set up in the style of a high-finish Brazilian churrascaria, Texas de Brazil has a lot much more to supply than a wide choice of wonderful grilled meats.

Even the salad bar is a culinary encounter in itself and you could conveniently take your meat-absolutely free close friends along for a meal with you! Japanese sushi maki, fresh wide variety of gourmet artisan bread, imported cheeses, fresh buffalo mozzarella, steamed asparagus with strawberry sauce, Brazilian hearts of palm, grilled Portobello mushrooms, Greek olives, shrimp salad, sautéed mushrooms… the list goes on!

Of course, the heart of the cause we have been there in the very first location was not the salad bar, wonderful as it was. This churrascaria steakhouse is manned by a group of “Gauchos” who not only carve your prime grilled meat straight onto your plate, but they essentially chose the cuts, prepare and grill them as effectively. The people today carving your steak, lamb chops and chicken onto your plate are not waiters, but specially educated chefs, or “Gauchos.”

Sticking with the Brazilian theme, when you are prepared for the Gauchos to bring yet another reduce of meat for you to attempt, merely flip more than the modest, round placemat to show the green side – green signifies go – and they’ll know that you are prepared for much more. When you really feel like taking a break or merely focusing on the meals you currently have on your plate, then flip it more than to show the red side and you will be left alone to delight in your meals. 

The excellent of the meat was exceptional, which was fortunate for me as these days I only ever consume red meat if it is exceptional! Each reduce was cooked to a fantastic medium uncommon with absolutely nothing but a healthful dose of rock salt to seal in the flavors and juices.

Accompanied by a standard-style caipirinha, our 3-hour lunch was capped off with a desert section of carrot cake, crucial lime pie, and creme brûlée.

It is not generally that we devote 3 hours at the table when we go out for a meal, but this was so very good we didn’t even notice!
