Brazil Grill - Our Tradition

Last year we decided to begin a tradition, which we continued tonight.  A few days before Christmas we travel to Portland to have a scrumptious dinner at Brazil Grill.  If you are a meat lover - you'll think you've died and gone to heaven! 
The meats are all served at your table by "roaming gauchos".  They wander around the restaurant with various cooked meats on swords and they carve the meat right at your table.  You begin at the salad bar (but why fill up on salad when a veritable meat feast awaits you!) and when you return to your table you turn what looks like a hockey puck from the red side to green.  Green let's the gauchos know you would like to be visited with the various meats.  When you want to "rest", turn the puck over to red.  Tonight we dined on: 
Marinated Prawns
Chili-Lime Pork Loin
Marinated Chicken Legs
Bacon-Wrapped Chicken 
Marinated Lamb
Linguicia Sausage
Beef Tri-Tip
Bacon Wrapped Beef Filet
Mustard Beef Sirloin
Beef Sirloin
And we ended with a sweet treat - which is AHHHH-MAZING!!!...Roasted Cinnamon Pineapple. 
Of course, we probably just HAD to partake of a Caipirinha - or two!  (Brazilian cocktail - think yummy - and kind of like a margarita but with sugar cane rum - and better!)
 Happy beginning of the Christmas weekend!
