“Even suitable for vegetarians!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013

I came to Fogao Gaucho with two meat-loving colleagues, and was very pleasantly surprised by the quality and selection of salad items available for vegetarians. Not only is there a cold buffet full of very fresh vegetables, there are also Japanese rice rolls and sushi, as well as hot items brought to your table such as roasted cheese, polenta chips, yucca, fried banana etc.

The salad bar contained probably 40 or more items including mixed salads as well as lightly steamed vegetables. There was a large cheese selection and many different dressings to choose from.

It isn't cheap but the food is very good.

“The BEST churrascaria in Sao Paulo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2012

Its worth taking the trip to the edge of downtown to go here. This is the best in all of Sao Paulo. It is located next to the Brazilian Football Federation and Palmeiras stadium/headquarters so you often see Brazilian soccer celebrities dining here...if not the entire Palmeiras team. This churrascaria has a slight edge on Fogao de Chao...much of the same amentities and impeccable service but the quality of the meats is a step above. You'll end up paying a premium for this (around $60/head) but it is 100% worth it.
