Obviously, I'm a few days late ... but better late than never. I celebrated International Women's Day with my mom and my sisters (and my 2 year old nephew, who for obvious reasons couldn't be left home alone) at Copacabana Brazilian Steakhouse in Toronto. It's usually close to 50 dollars to eat there during the weekends, but they had a special for women only and it extended past the actual Women's Day.
If you're not sure what Copacabana is, it's a Brazilian rodizio place and it's basically a meat lover's heaven. So, if you're a vegetarian .. this is not the place for you. It's all you can eat, so they have this salad bar/non meaty foods ? Basically that's where they have the garilic cheesy breads, macaroni, different pastas and a variety of salads and seafood. Then when you're seated, these people come around with all different kinds of meat on skewers and they just cut it off for you and the variety is amazing. They have everything from Parmesan filet mignon, to Parmesan chicken, lamb chops, spicy chicken, garlic filet mignon and one of my personal favorites .... Filet mignon wrapped in bacon!
They also bring around this grilled pineapple on a skewer and it tastes so good. It also helps you "recharge" if you start to feel full. After you eat a slice, you can just wait a few minutes and you're ready to eat again. I don't know why or if there's a science behind it, but it works. I also can't forget to mention the cornbread which was so delicious that I couldn't even be bothered to snap a photo of it.
So this actually ended up just being a huge food post, but I don't care. It's like that sometimes. Seriously this place is great and I had an amazing time. The price was also very reasonable, so I'm grateful to Copacabana for remembering all women this women's day! Great day, great company, great food!
