Texas de Brazil brings its renowned rodizio-style dining and authentic churrasco to Washington State with new location in Tacoma Mall
Just two months after Texas de Brazil Churrascaria celebrated its 20th anniversary, the Brazilian-American steakhouse brand has opened its 60th location and first in Washington State in the Tacoma Mall. Family-owned since its founding in 1998, Texas de Brazil is renowned for its striking ambiance, endless rodizio-style dining experience, and unique blend of Brazilian culture with generous Texas hospitality.
The vibrantly decorated 5,500 square foot restaurant offers 105 seats and a dining experience like no other. Featuring an open-grill kitchen, an expansive salad area, an intimate lounge, and an award-winning wine cellar, Texas de Brazil is a standout dining destination for large and small parties alike.
“We are pleased to introduce our distinct dining experience to new patrons and welcome the opportunity to greet and serve guests in this beautiful city of Tacoma,” says Salim Asrawi, Chief Operating Officer of Texas de Brazil. “We look forward to treating shoppers, residents and guests from the University of Washington to our unique Brazilian fare and genuine service,” he adds.
At Texas de Brazil, the rodizio-style meal begins with a visit to the expansive fresh salad area that also includes hot and cold side specialty dishes. The variety includes artisan breads, imported cheeses, fresh buffalo mozzarella, steamed asparagus with marmalade sauce, Brazilian hearts of palm, spicy shrimp salad, sushi, sautéed mushrooms, feijoada (black beans), jasmine rice, Moqueca (Brazilian Coconut Fish Stew), lobster bisque and much more. The options help make this a steakhouse even vegetarians love.™
For the main course, carvers prepare mouthwatering cuts of meat grilled to perfection over natural wood charcoal – a gaucho tradition passed down through generations. When guests flip a two-sided disc located at each seat from red to green, gauchos parade by and carve tableside slow-roasted meats including Brazilian picanha (sirloin), lamb chops, filet mignon, leg of lamb, Parmesan-crusted pork loin, bacon wrapped chicken breast and more. When a break is needed from the unending flow of mouthwatering meats, guests simply turn discs back to red. This unique style of dining helps pace the experience to fit any timeframe – from leisurely meals with friends and family or efficient visits with business associates.
The expertly curated wine collection complements the varied menu with varietals from acclaimed California and South America vineyards to Texas de Brazil’s exclusive private label selection bottled in Chile. The lounge offers craft cocktails including the traditional Brazilian Caipirinha in a variety of flavors and a full selection of specialty cocktails, beer and soft drinks including the Brazilian Guarana.
Classic desserts served a la carte include Brazilian flan, deliciously rich Brazilian papaya cream and Brazilian Cheesecake plus sweet specialties such as pecan pie, carrot cake, and key lime pie.
