40-4-Steve: Brazilian Rodizio

Have you ever had Brazilian rodizio? If not, drop everything and go! I bought a Groupon for Cleo's Brazilian Steakhouse as part of the 40-4-Steve project, as neither Steve nor I had eaten at a Brazilian steakhouse before. 

The restaurant has a large buffet with a wide variety of delicious Brazilian dishes, but the real treat comes on skewers. Waiters stop at each table with their offerings, and carve off slices of whatever you want to try. They keep coming as long as you keep the sign on your table flipped to green. When you can't eat another bite, you flip it to red and they no longer come to your table. Brilliant!

Oh, the food! It was amazing. Well, most of it. We tried every dish, including chicken hearts. It turns out that none of the deRosiers like chicken hearts. At all. I'm glad we tried them though. Especially Trevor. So many of my friends struggle with getting their kids to eat perfectly ordinary foods, and my son is willing to try chicken hearts. 

It's impossible to pick a favorite dish, as everything (except the chicken hearts) was sublime. If I HAD to choose, I'd say the roasted pineapple smothered in cinnamon was my absolute favorite. 

We'll be back. No doubt.
