I am a certified meat lover. Back in Dubai, Texas de Brazil is our go-to “meat heaven” and would spend a fortune just to have different types of meat. We would do that only on special occasions – last I remember it was my birthday from two years back – as the price is a bit too much at AED 165/person, without drinks.
Located in The Original Farmers Market at The Grove in Los Angeles, Pampas Grill Churrascaria is a casual, cafeteria-style Brazilian BBQ. My friends took me there for brunch.
In Pampas Grill, you pay by the pound and there is a huge variety of sides and meats to choose from. The place has a buffet style setup, starting with a salad bar, followed by sides and last, the Brazilian BBQ.
They offer many types of meat including Sirloin Cap, Top Sirloin, Spicy Chicken, Garlic Chicken, Pork Loin, Garlic Beef, Brazilian Sausage, Lamb, and Bacon Wrapped Chicken. I was practically drooling as they were cutting the meat! I highly recommend the Top Sirloin and Garlic Beef – tender, juicy and flavourful.
For the sides, I had collared greens and fried plantains. I came with two friends and we all ordered different things and picked up different proteins, starches, veggies and sides.
My meat craving for was fulfilled without the guilt of over-eating. I was not feeling too stuffed and bloated afterwards! I must say, during my visit to L.A., this was definitely one of my favourites.
