This year, I went with a friend (and now some new friends) to an all-you-can-eat Brazilian Steakhouse in Beverly Hills. To be honest, I'm not really a meat person, but I figured it'd be a good experience and for $44! My friend had talked about Brazilian places like these where they come around with skewers and ask if you want a cut of that specific meat, and with a discount (this place usually costs $60/person), I was excited.
Fogo de Chao:
133 N La Cienega Blvd.
Beverly Hills, CA 90211
(Valet parking only.)
Green for "Bring on the meat!". On the other side is red. Red for "I've had enough...I think."
The waiters kept coming to only me, only to have me towards the end of our meal. Then I realized that mine was on green still. Fail.
Dark and "sulty". haha...jk. But the ambiance was nice. It's a bit loud in there though.
All you can eat salad bar. I enjoyed the smoked salmon very much! I tried not to stuff myself so much before what was expected to come...
Nice, classy dinner setting.
BRING ON THE MEAT!
I think this is the filet mignon. I swear I had 10lbs of meat that night: lamb, black pepper steak, sausage, lots of filet mignon...so good!)
Two of the side dishes: seasoned mashed potatoes and caramelized bananas.
They cut out the dinner during this year's dineLA. DARN. For $45+, we could have had at least a little dessert! Oh well. Definitely a once in a year at most kind of dinner!
Pineapple Dole Whip (similar to the one sold at Disneyland). YUM!
My schmancified pictures. I felt so rushed before actually heading out to dinner. I never really do anything special to my hair...so when I tried to something "different", it didn't turn out very special at all. Oh well. I still was able to make it work.
Added some BLUE. Amazing, right? Lip butter is in "Berry Smoothie".
Used my L'Oreal Infallibles: Iced Latte, Amber Rush, and Midnight Blue!
OOTD: Black bow dress: H&M, Diamond Cross Tights: Urban Outfitters (similar, similar), Heeled booties: Nordstrom Rack (similar)
Such a classy post. Heh heh. I love trying out new food, and this one was definitely a keeper (though I think I'm done with MEAT for a while...).
Hope you all are doing well! Weekends tend to be the busiest times for me, so hoping to catch up on blogs soon! ♡ Hope you're having a great week and enjoying the last day of January 2012!
