Texas de Brazil Opens First Restaurant in KSA
TEXAS de Brazil, the largest Brazilian-American steakhouse chain in the world, opened Tuesday in Riyadh, bringing the unique churrascaria dining concept for the first time to Saudi Arabia. The restaurant›s menu combines the cuisine and culture of Southern Brazil with the generous spirit of Texas, for an unparalleled dining experience.
The restaurant, managed by Gourmet Gulf, the leading food and beverage company in the Middle East, is located at Rubeen Plaza, on Riyadh’s Northern Ring Road.
At Texas de Brazil, the all-you-can-eat concept comes to life as Gauchos prepare, cook and personally serve each table, carving an array of grilled beef, lamb, chicken, prawns and beef sausage, as directed by the guest’s green and red disks that indicate when to bring more meat, or when a break is needed. The impressive selection of cuts are prepared in a traditional Brazilian method over an open flame, and presented tableside by only the best skilled Brazilian gauchos, known as the ‘cowboys of Brazil’.
The steakhouse also boasts an elaborate salad area, beautifully decorated by large tropical flowers and featuring tempting fresh gourmet items such as imported cheeses, charcuterie, roasted vegetables and creamy lobster bisque. Texas de Brazil also offers a variety of beverages and decadent desserts from the à la carte menu, which includes a selection of specialty mocktails, to further enhance the dining experience.
«The food and hospitality industry in Saudi Arabia has grown significantly over the past years and there is growing demand for best in class international restaurants. We look forward to providing a unique dining experience and an amazing value to the meat lovers in the Kingdom,” says Stewart Black, CEO, Gourmet Gulf.
“We are proud to partner with Gourmet Gulf for our first opening in Saudi Arabia. We look forward to welcoming many visitors and residents in the capital city of Riyadh”, said Salim Asrawi, Chief Operating Officer, Texas de Brazil.
Gourmet Gulf currently holds the franchise rights to California Pizza Kitchen, Yo! Sushi and Panda Express, the largest Asian restaurant chain in the world. — SG
