Churrascaria Plataforma Restaurant Review

: Churrascaria Plataforma is the place to meet for meat. Servers parade around the dining room carrying skewers of it, stopping by each table to slice morsels directly onto diners' plates. You may have as much or as little as you wish of each. Pork loin, top sirloin, prime beef tips, leg of lamb, chicken drumstick, turkey wrapped in bacon, charbroiled octopus --- on and on it goes until guests stop the procession by turning up the red side of a small coaster on the table. Before the meat feast begins, guests are encouraged to sample from the copious salad bar with everything from hearts of palm to quail eggs, but beware of overindulging in the prelude to fully enjoy the meal. Such appetite-quashing adventures are usually accompanied by caipirinhas, Brazilian cocktails made with the sugarcane spirit cachaca.
