Fogo de Chão Brazilian Steakhouse 

Tradition goes a long way in cooking; adding a layer of depth that cannot be found in contemporary cuisine. One such restaurant in San Diego is the Fogo de Chão Brazilian Steakhouse. They follow the Gaucho way of grilling meat and the centuries-old tradition of churrasco. Their food is as delicious as it is fascinating.

A Cultural Heritage

Restaurant in San Diego

The founding brothers of this restaurant in San Diego grew up in Southern Brazil, on a farm where they learned the churrasco grilling tradition. They moved to Sao Paulo to practice and hone their skill in this style of cooking.

After opening their first successful restaurant in Porto Alegre, they gained a reputation and attracted people from around the area to dine at their restaurant. The first American Fogo de Chão Brazilian Steakhouse opened in Texas in 1997, eventually expanding their enterprise across 29 new locations.

So, what is the inspiration behind their menu? It is a feast inspired by big kitchen tables on Southern Brazilian farms, where friends and family congregate to enjoy the best and cleanest produce from their harvests.

The native cuisine of Southern Brazil revolves around its beef variety. In the Rio Grande do Sul, it’s uncommon to see a house without a churrasqueira, a special grill incorporated into the structure. This method of cooking is all about discipline: the beef is cooked slowly with a light seasoning to enable the natural flavors to develop.

Robust meats go well with mashed potatoes, and a large Napa Cabernet like Don Melchor or Silver Oak are perfect pairings to the richly cooked meat. Since each guest’s plate is unique, they have the luxury to mix and match their favorite meats, sauces, and Market Table selections as they like. There are no incorrect ways to eat Brazilian food.

Picanha, their trademark steak, exemplifies the science and art of churrasco cooking. It’s delicate and flavorful when lightly flavored with rock salt. Without picanha, there would have been no churrasco.

If a full-sized steak is too heavy for you, you can go for their lighter options such as seasonal salads, foreign meats and cheeses, delectably fresh vegetables, artisan bread, and more.
