CHURRASCARIA is a place where meat is cooked in the churasco style, which translates roughly from the Portuguese word for "barbeque".
CHURRASCARIA cuisine is typically served rodizio style where roving waiters serve the barbequed meats from large skewers directly onto the seated diners' plates. Along with fresh salads and homecooked side dishes, at RIO PICANHA we strive to only pick the freshest ingredients for our guests' pleasure.
Churasco, which means barbeque, has been a tradition for more than three centuries in a region in southern Brazil , known as the Pampas (High Plains).
The old gauchos (local ranchers) cooked large portions of poultry, pork and beef on skewers over an open fire pit. The original and unique way of roasting meat
conserved the characteristic taste of each portion, leaving the cuts full of their natural juices and flavors.
