Churrascaria in Toronto or area

  • f

Does anybody at all know of a real Argentinian Churrascaria restaurant in the GTA (preferrably closer to Toronto)? I mean the kind of place that has the huge variety of char-grilled meats on the skewers that the waiters (grouchos I believe they are called) come around and serve you with. Anybody know of a place like this?

  1. Not sure if it's exactly what you're looking for, but Sky Ranch is an Argentine place just north of Eglinton on Dufferin. I haven't been there yet so I can't comment on their fare, but it sounds good.

    2473 Dufferin St.

    1. Not to be pedantic, but it might help you with your search: the word "churrascaria" is actually a Portuguese one, and I think you are thinking of a Brazilian-style dinner where servers come by with meat on swords. Having said that, I don't know where you can find such a restaurant in Toronto.

      (Oh, and gauchos -- not grouchos -- are sort of Argentinian cowboys.)

          1. re: Davwud

            It's Brazilian, and mediocre.

            Sky Ranch is Argentinian, but very modest, and not really about grilled meat. You may be thinking of Asado, which is the Argentinian version of Churrasco, its Brazilian cousin, which is what Carnaval ostensibly serves.

            I haven't seen true asado (or brazilian churrasco) in Toronto.
