There’s many ways to spend a date night out in Houston…
go to a movie, bowling, dancing, etc… but one of my favorites will always be getting wined & dined!
My husband and I recently mixed up our usual dining experience, and tried Houston’s Chama Gaucha Brazilian Steakhouse. And OH…MY…GOSH… I think I have a permanent food baby. Everything was so tasty! From the extensive selection at the salad bar, to the savory meats served & carved fresh at your table, you are treated and fed like royalty.
Ask anyone, I’m not much of a meat eater, but the Filet Mignon had me asking for seconds! Every variation of meat is seasoned and cooked to perfection, offered and cut freshly at your table from one of the gauchos (trained Brazilian chef) circulating the restaurant. Each individual is given a red & green sided card once seated; the green side of the card indicates that you are wanting to be offered meats and the red side indicates that you are full and not interested at the moment. The gauchos will be circulating the restaurant with 12 different meat options so I recommend pacing yourself and taking 2 pieces of each at max! (at least in the beginning) Although the red meats were delicious, my favorite ‘meat’ was the succulent Jumbo Shrimps! So flavorful!
If you aren’t much of a meat eater, there’s a wonderful salad bar as well!! This is where I filled my plate with avocado, roasted bell peppers, fresh mozzarella balls, broccolini, and tabouli! Honestly, you could easily get satisfied from the salad bar alone. With over 30 different items to choose from, you can definitely find some healthy sides to compliment all your meats.
OH!!!! And how could I forget!? One of my favorite things about going to a Brazilian Steakhouse is that they serve you hot Pan de Queso as soon as you’re seated! HEART EYES FOR DAYS!!! These little cheese bread balls give me life! Pan de Queso is a Brazilian appetizer that is GLUTEN FREE! Yes people, bread that is gluten free. God does exist. The reason it is naturally gluten free, yet still has the taste and texture of bread, is because it is made from tapioca flour or yuca flour. I have a gluten intolerance, so the fact that I could eat these bad boys without a break-out made me so so happy! Needless to say, I devoured them. And have already looked up recipes on how to make them at home…Sorry, not sorry.
We didn’t leave much room for dessert but that did not stop us. Chama Gaucha offers mini desserts on their menu for 1/2 the cost of their normal portions! My husband and I have different tastes when it comes to desserts…he was interested in the Cheesecake and I wanted to try the Tres Leches. So since they had a mini option, we ordered both to try! Honestly every restaurant should offer this option because most people just want a couple bites of dessert anyways! But even these mini size portions were more than enough. This place does not cheat you on serving size, that’s for sure.
Even though the food was amazing, the service at Chama Gaucha really stood out to me. Such a great wait staff that was very attentive to every need or request. Anytime I go out to eat, the service is something that either makes or breaks it for me; and I have nothing but good things to say about the service here. We had a wonderful time here and definitely recommend this restaurant for any occasion; whether it be a business meeting, date night, or birthday celebration, Chama Gaucha is a great dining experience!
