I have never done the churrascaria style dining at Texas de Brazil. However, I've stopped by their weekly happy hour three times. From 4:00 - 7:00 you can get half priced small meat plates and $3 beers. The small meat plates come in different combinations, but you basically have your choice of sausage, a lamb chop, bacon wrapped chicken, filet and sirloin roast.

I absolutely love the chimichurri sauce. It is great for dipping your meat as well as your cheese bread. Chimichurri sauce is a simple combination of: parsley, garlic, olive oil, oregano and some other various seasonings. If you look at my meat plate you'll also notice that they gave me a very healthy serving of green jelly.
Ever since I was a small lad I can remember my father serving lamb with green jelly. This has never made any sense to me and I actually think it is disgusting and does nothing to compliment the flavor of the lamb. I've never really questioned the practice, but I find it odd that Texas de Brazil serves the green jelly as I thought the practice had largely fallen out of favor.
Well, it turns out that the stupid English used to serve green mint jelly with mutton in order to disguise the taste. (Sheep's meat is called mutton after the lamb turns one year old. Mutton has a much stronger taste.) The English are dumb as hell. Can you imagine if you went to a restaurant and they served you a hamburger with green jelly because they let the meat sit out too long?
No taxation without representation. Don't let those sheep grow up and down with the green jelly industry!
