Dating back hundreds of years ago in Brazil, the Rodizio found its roots around the campfires of gauchos (Brazilian cowboys) where the common meal, enjoyed after a long day, consisted of skewers of meat cooked over an open fire and passed from man to man to enjoy. This tradition has continued over the years and has made its way to restaurants such as Saboroso where our gauchos move from table to table, from guest to guest carving succulent meats which have been cooked over charcoal by our grill master.
The communal form of dining was important in the life of the gaucho and is part of our dining here at Saboroso where the guests gather at the common table to choose their side dishes. Here you will find traditional dishes such as feijoada, a traditional stew of beans with pork, as well as crispy polenta, golden cubes of flash fried corn meal. Side by side with these dishes are healthy and familiar salads like quinoa with corn, pasta salad with crab, and black bean with corn, as well as build-your-own salad options. Be sure to try some of the chimichurri dressing, a delicious topping for the rodizio made fresh daily from fresh Italian parsley, red wine vinegar and seasoning. Then, return to your table to be engaged by the staff and fellow diners.
