In the past, pieces of meat were baked on a wooden grill placed over the fire called Barbacoa. It was a time not only for eating, but of a great celebration that brought people together to enjoy good meat. Inspired by this barbecue culture, Barbacoa was inaugurated in São Paulo in 1990, and today there are 15 units spread throughout São Paulo, Bahia, Brasília, Japan and Italy. There are more than 15 cuts such as Prime Rib, Roast Strip, Strip Steak (the picanha cut), Chorizo Steak, Thin Skirt, Lamb Chop and Boar Loin.
The meat’s price includes a side dish, such as manioc puree or farofa, and also a generous and always fresh salad buffet. To improve the experience and harmonize with the meats, Barbacoa offers a varied wine list, with selected labels from among the best producers in the world. Another great highlight is the Kids Space, open on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays, during lunch. It’s good to go with the whole family! A curious fact is that the name Barbacoa is in reference to a wooden grill, typical of the Arawak Indians, South America natives, called “barbacoa”, word that gave rise to the English term barbecue.
