Type: Nice, Dinner, City, Movie
Planned By: Adam
to Groupon, Adam took me out to a very nice romantic dinner. While Adam
was interning in Houston two summers ago the company took him out for a
wonderful lunch at a restaurant called Fogo de Chao a Brazilian
steakhouse. Adam went on and on and on about this place and I had no
idea why until he took me to a similar restaurant later that summer,
also in Houston. This type of restaurant soon became Adam's all time
favorite place to go. Only problem is it's outrageously expensive. While
walking around downtown we saw Brasa. Adam got super excited and has
been waiting months to go there. Luckily, Groupon knew this and we gave
us a great deal for $30 off at Brasa!
These type of Brazilian steakhouses are also known as churrascarias. It
is an all you can eat meat restaurant. The servers walk around with
different types of meat and carve it for you at your table. Brasa has 16
different types of meat!! Everything was delicious! My favorite was the
Filet Mignon with Parmesan cheese. Yum!
Brasa also has a 40 item salad bar included in the price for a full
dinner. This salad bar was not just salad! Nope.. there there were
different kinds of seafood and mixed salads and other random stuff. It
was almost like a full dinner buffet. So I tried my first mussel, and it
was really weird, but I'm glad I tried it! Along with the meat and
salad they also provide some side dishes; mini rolls, rice, fries, fried
bananas (which Adam loves), and salsa. Their service was outstanding..
we were never waiting for more food or water, and there was always
someone asking how we were. It was a very nice restaurant. I would
recommend it to everyone... except Vegetarians because that would be a
big waste of money!
By the end of this dinner.. we were completely stuffed and
satisfied. We definitely got our money's worth. We went home and watched
The Descendants. This movie wasn't as good as we thought it was going
to be. I looove George Clooney and Shailene Woodley showed off her
acting talent that I was surprised to see she had (I watch The Secret
Life of The American Teenager).
Overall, it was one of our best dinner dates! We had an amazing time
and we got an extremely good deal! We also got our movie rental for
free via a pinterest pin about free Red Box codes! Yay for coupons,
groupons and free codes!
