Tucked away in the Briar Creek community at 8551 Briar Creek Parkway in Raleigh, but still holding on to that big city feel, Brasa Brazillian is a great getaway when you want to enjoy really great authentic Brazillian food on the higher end of the chain. It is what they call a “true Brazilian steakhouse.”
It is a Brazilian rodizio style restaurant, and so that means that their wide variety of meat originating from Southern Brazil is fire-roasted to perfection and includes beef, pork, lamb, chicken, and even seafood. Inside the warm atmosphere with dark browns and reds, with thick sexy curtains and big fireplaces, there is also an exotic Appetizer Bar as well as a great Salad Bar that includes all the favorites belonging to the Brazilian culture. Everything is so delicious that you may choose only to eat from these bars because everything is so carefully selected and carefully prepared to delight your senses!
Being a rodizio style restaurant, Brasa Brazilian’s menu goes this way: At lunch time, choose from three options which include the Silver option for $10.95, which includes the all inclusive salad bar and appetizer bar; or the Gold option for $18.95 which includes the salad bar, appetizer bar, and select rodizio meats (garlic steak, sausage, bacon wrapped filet, and chicken); or the Platinum for $24.95 which includes the salad bar, appetizer bar, and all meats offered in the restaurant. Or, come at dinner time and choose the Silver for $26.95 that includes the salad bar and appetizer bar; the Gold for $37.95 that includes the salad bar, appetizer bar, and all rodizio meats; or the Platinum option for $54.95 that includes the salad bar, appetizer bar, all rodizio meats, and a lobster tail.
And this is the most exciting part of this entire experience. When you are ready to eat the rodizio meats, turn the little coaster on your table over to signal the waiters that you are ready to eat. Then sit back and watch as they come out, wielding swords of meat so that you can sample the delicious meats! It is called “Steak Theater” by Brasa Brazillian restaurant.
Where does this entire restaurant ritual and form of cooking these delicious meats come from? From Brazil, of course, on the Southern pampas where “gauchos” roamed their land. At night, around dinner time, they would build big fires both for warmth and for . . . cooking dinner! These people mastered the art of cooking their delicious meats slowly over these open flames on large, long skewers (like those swords the waiters wield!) turning over the flames. Everyone was to enjoy the meats until completely satisfied; just as you would do in this great restaurant . . . dining is unlimited.
Come enjoy this great tradition of the Brazillian gauchos, and bring along your honey or your friends so that they can experience it with you! And don’t forget about the Sunday brunch that is offered every Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. which includes delicious made to order omelettes, fresh fruit selections, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, quiche, and many more items for $18 per adult or $10 per child!
