Galpão Gaucho – Brazilian Steakhouse – Roseville
“Get ready to eat your weight in meat! Brazilian steakhouse Galpão Gaucho is opening at the Galleria in Roseville” in early 2023. It’s an “all you can eat” restaurant. Yummy! ABC10.com reports that “Gauchos with skewers come to your table and cut you off a slab of whatever they have, including various cuts of beef, pork, seafood and even pineapple, until you make them stop. ” (ABC10.com KXTV)
I had personally never heard of a Brazilian steakhouse so I did some searching on YouTube and found several videos recording various visits to this delicious looking restaurant at their Las Vegas location. Here’s one that really did a good job of describing the various flavors – it’s long, 30 minutes, but you get the picture pretty quick if you don’t want to watch it all. I have to say – it looks delish! And based on the the 3 videos I watched, it really IS delish!
