San Diego Restaurants You Can't Miss!
This article is​ the​ first of​ a​ series about San Diego Restaurants you can't miss .​
If you live in​ San Diego, or​ even more important, if​ you come to​ America's finest city as​ a​ visitor, I​ wanna give you some great options for​ dining in​ San Diego, California .​
I live in​ San Diego for​ more than 6 years, I'm originally from Brazil, so please forgive me for​ any mistakes, because english is​ not my first language, but I'll try my best to​ comply with all the​ grammar rules .​
Being an​ engineer from Brazil, I​ wanna start telling you about the​ brazilian cuisine and​ the​ brazilian restaurants available in​ San Diego .​
One of​ the​ most tradicitional kind of​ restaurant/cuisine in​ Brazil, is​ what we call churrascaria, which would be a​ bbq restaurant, but different than anything you can imagine, if​ you don't know how it​ is​ yet .​
Of course we're talking meat here, so if​ you're a​ vegetarian I​ apologize, but It's not going to​ be a​ good choice for​ you .​
The Brazilian bbq steakhouse, whatever you wanna call it, It's an​ amazing dining experience, specially if​ you never tried .​
So what is​ it, exactly?
It starts with a​ salad bar and​ a​ all you can eat buffet that includes most tradicional dishes from Brazil .​
That would be more than enough, but don't let that fool you, the​ fun is​ yet to​ begin .​
At your table, there is​ a​ 'sign' with two sides, one red and​ one green .​
You use that to​ show the​ servers that you want meat when the​ green side is​ up or​ red, if​ you're not up to​ it .​
The servers will bring you more than 20 different kinds and/or cuts of​ meat, all from the​ bbq, that includes ribs, pork ribs, chicken, italian style sausage, turkey wrapped in​ bacon, filet mignon wrapped in​ bacon, skirt stake, try tip, try tip with garlic, top sirloin .​
.​
.​
Well, you get the​ picture .​
They will come to​ your table, if​ your sign is​ green and​ keep serving you until you can't handle no more .​
It's an​ amazing experience .​
I​ took a​ few american friends to​ this restaurant for​ their first time, and​ they loved it .​
They couldn't believe the​ amount of​ food and​ the​ quality of​ the​ food .​
Everything is​ delicius .​
Of course quality will vary from place to​ place, and​ even how many different kinds of​ meats they will serve, but the​ experience is​ similar .​
In San Diego, there is​ two different Brazilian BBQ restaurants, both in​ downtown and​ actually, very close to​ each other .​
One is​ called Rei do Gado, or​ the​ king of​ the​ cows .​
It's a​ good restaurant, It's been in​ business for​ a​ while now and​ on a​ saturday night you'll need reservations .​
Prices can be expensive for​ a​ saturday night, around $35 per person .​
One great tip is​ to​ go for​ a​ weekday lunch special, that costs aroun $13 a​ person, a​ much better deal .​
But don't get me wrong, It's worth it​ every dollar .​
Rei do Gado is​ located at​ 939 Fourth Avenue, in​ downtown San Diego, on the​ famous Gaslamp Quarter .​
The zipcode is​ 92101 if​ you wanna da a​ map search .​
The other great choice is​ Samba Grill Churrascaria, also in​ downtown, and​ like they like to​ call, It's an​ endless parade of​ skewered meat! Samba Grill headquarter is​ in​ Salt Lake City, and​ the​ San Diego location is​ at​ 514, Horton Plaza, Gaslamp Quaters, Downtown San Diego (92101) .​
Yes, it's inside the​ Horton Plaza mall .​
So there you go, if​ you have never tried one of​ this brazilian bbq places, GO! if​ you're in​ San Diego, or​ coming to​ San Diego and​ looking for​ a​ good San Diego restaurant, try the​ Brazilian feast.
