I’ve never been a huge fan of Churascarias, mainly because I never feel I can eat enough to justify the cost, yet I still leave feeling uncomfortably full! Recently, however, we were both starving, and had a coupon in hand for Via Brasil and figured… Why not?
The place is nice inside, modern, clean, with plenty of seating. The food came around at regular intervals, although I swear, the sausage guy must’ve come over at least four times!
As for the food? I thought it was okay. The garlic picanha was perfectly cooked, and incredibly tasty. Unfortunately, most of the other dishes weren’t as good. I thought the parmesan pork loin was tasty, but incredibly dry. Same with the salmon. And the sausage had a very strange flavor to me; I couldn’t take more than one bite.
Some of the sides were pretty good, however. I liked the cheesy rolls, fried bananas, and asparagus risotto. But I don’t feel justified paying $40 for these!
I left full, but underwhelmed with the quality of the meat. Maybe we were there on an off night?
