WINTERLICIOUS 2018: All the meat you can eat for 43 bucks, bro!!!!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year–we’re talking Winterlicious, dude! The time where over 200 restaurants in Toronto are offering three course meals at some crazy cheap prices–or in the case of Rodeo Brazilian Steakhouse, as many courses of meat as you can eat! It’s like a Flavourtown festival of funkaliciousness, heading straight down my piehole, bro!!!

They start you off with the salad bar, which includes cured meat, breads and cheeses. The highlight has gotta be the cooked shrimp and mussels, although there weren’t many mussels left when I got there.

Of course, you don’t wanna fill up on salad when there’s steak to be eaten. Their prime rib was tender, juicy and cheesy, with little bits of cheddar baked right in. I could pound about 20 pieces of this stuff, son!

But, y’know, life isn’t always about the beef. Not when there’s some fresh-sliced pork shoulder to be scarfed, too!

Daddy, would you like some sausage? Don’t mind if I do, son!!!

Who can say no to chicken parm on a stick? I think I slammed at least six of these!

Now you KNOW I can’t just say no to chicken wings, bro! These molten-hot flavour nuggets taste even better with some Cholula Chipotle sauce on ’em!

Now, here’s something you won’t get at the Copacabana–it’s a yellow-bellied chicken liver! This sphere of internal poultry has definitely got a different texture, kinda chewy and not as meaty. I think I’ll stick with the steak…

Now, you wouldn’t think I’d still have room for dessert at the end of this funkalicious flavourtrain, but this deep-fried banana is bananas–and bananas ARE good, bro!!!!

Eating all the meats @ Copacabana

Now, it goes without saying I like steak. Dude, this is body by steak, bro!!!! So, when I found this funky Brazilian steakhouse that was serving up all the meat you could eat for two hours, I knew I wanted to eat all of it. And with about 20 different kinds of steak, chicken and seafood on the menu, I pretty much checked all of them off the list. (The only thing I didn’t see was sausage, son!)

We start off with some top sirloin, sliced right off the spit! Careful with that knife, bro!!!!

Next up, we’ve got filet mignon wrapped in bacon. You can’t go wrong with beef wrapped in bacon!

Next up, we’ve got some parmesan steak. Can you tell I like steak?

And now for some New York striploin. And I didn’t even hafta ride the subway to get it!

And now, time for something completely different. We’re talking Slamma Jamma Lamba, son!!!!

In Brazil, they call this picanha. In Flavourtown, we call it magically delicious! Oh, and there’s some grilled pineapple on the side, so I can say I had one serving of fruit.

You know what’s even better than top sirloin? Garlic sirloin, bro!!!

And now, here’s something I didn’t even see on the menu. When they were coming around with a container of beef ribs, you know I had to grab some!

But you know, they don’t just do beef at this joint. Here’s a little dish I like to call Moroccan Chicken:

I saw the shrimp, and it opened up my mouth, I saw the shrimp…

Now, how do you make prime rib even better? Just add aged cheddar!

And now we’re heading south of the border for some funkalicious chimichurri steak:

Now, I completely forgot to take a picture of the flank steak before I shoved it straight down my piehole. My bad, bro! But maybe it’s time to switch to chicken. Here’s the cilantro lime edition:

And how’s about a drumstick?

They just called this one “spicy chicken.” I couldn’t tell you what kind of spice–at this point, I can’t even taste my feelings:

Two hours and 16 meats (plus one pineapple) later, and we’re outta here. But man, if I could just get a sword of the cheddar prime rib to go, that would be great, bro!
