picanha, Tererê

This is picanha,
a favorite cut
among Brazilians.

Tererê was appointed by Veja magazine as the best meat restaurant in Natal. We agree with Veja.
The name Tererê is a reference to a special kind of chimarrão, a kind of tea appreciated in the State of Rio Grande do Sul, which claims (rightfully so) to have the best churrasco in Brazil.

Tererê is located in Rota do Sol, on the road which leads to the southern coast of Rio Grande do Norte.
The restaurant works in the same manner as other rodízios: customers remain seated and waiters go about carrying different kinds of meat; to customers who want, the waiters will cut a piece or slice of meat; customers can eat as much as they like; there is a cold table with salads and appetizers in the middle of the saloon, also included in the price. Drinks and desserts are paid separately.

What makes Tererê better than the others?
First, the comfort. The restaurant has air conditioner (keeps customers and waiters from sweating), the large parking lot has driving valets.
Next, the service. There are more waiters than in other restaurants in Natal, and they are better trained and prepared to satisfy customers (few, if any, speak English though). If you want more of a particular kind of meat, ask a waiter and someone will soon bring it.
And, more important, the food. Tererê claims to serve eighteen different varieties of meat, including buffalo and wild boar; they have also some sushi and pasta.

In July 2006, price was R$ 26.90 per person; children aged 3 to 10 pay half fare. Notice, however, that prices can go up during the high season, or there may be some promotion.
