The space was really large with 2 levels. We waited by the bar on the ground floor for a few minutes before being escorted to the 2nd floor where the salad bar is located. The salad bar had a solid offering of fresh salad, fruit, cold cuts, potato salad, artichoke heart, palm hearts, asparagus. There was also soup, cocktail shrimp, seared tuna, smoked salmon, and a small selection of sushi or California rolls (which I didn’t try since I was saving room for meat!).
Appetizers of mashed potatoes and plaintains came with the meal. Both were tasty, but again I wanted to have room for the main course!
On our table was a circular card that you could flip to the green side to signal the waiters to stop by your table with meat. There were different types of meat (chicken, pork, beef, lamb) and a variety of cuts cooked medium rare. Some of our favorites were boneless beef rib and top sirloin. The beef rib was super tender and juicy and lightly seasoned, so you could really taste the flavor of the meat. We also tried the Brazilian sausage, which was a little too salty for our taste.
Texas de Brazil has a variety of tempting dessert choices including carrot cake, crème brûlée, cheese cake, but we chose the key lime pie and chocolate mousse cake. The key lime did not disappoint and was perfect after a heavy meal. The chocolate mouse was also delicious but a tad too sweet.
