Food & Drink Reviews

Before visiting Do¯¯ Brazillia, my only experience with a churrasco (Brazilian barbecue) was at a friend's family reunion, where everyone casually sat on the beach and ate loads of meat, sweets, and potato salad off plastic plates. We each had our own sturdy knives, used to cut personal portions from the hunks of meat sizzling on spits heated beneath the sand. My friend said that practically every family in her native Brazilian town had the same sort of barbecue pits dug into their backyards or built into their kitchen walls. Like many grill-owning families in this city, they used any excuse to host a family barbecue.
