Pampas has Brazilian Rotisserie Down

If you’ve never ventured to the Farmer’s Market at The Grove to try out Pampas Brazilian Churrascaria, then tonight is the night. Oh what, you were actually going to make your girlfriend watch Monk at your rat-hole apartment for the fifth Friday night in a row?

On the real, Pampas has some top-quality grilled meats, including this writer’s favorites, the sirloin cap (alcatra) and the grilled lamb. The eatery is open and outdoor since it is in the market. You simply grab a ceramic plate and make your way along the buffet line, loading various side dishes on. When you reach the grill, you make your choices and the fabulous folks there will take the meat directly off the rotisserie and add it to your plate.

The dish will weigh in at about $10 or $15 depending how much food you load onto it and it’s worth every penny. After you’re done you can stroll by the fresh pie bakery nearby or the homemade ice cream shop.
