Texas De Brazil

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I don't know if any of you have a Texas de Brazil near you. It's a Brazilian steakhouse that opened recently near me. I called them to find out if I could safely eat there. The girl on the phone didn't bat an eye and said, yes, I'll put a note on your reservation that says Celiac, and the chef will come out and explain everything to you and tell you what you can and can't have. I almost fell on the floor LOL. I am going Saturday so I will let you know how it was.

I read some reviews on UrbanSpoon.com about them that said they are great. So, fingers crossed...

The Brazilian Steakhouse concept seems to be a mostly gluten-free one. So people who don't have that one in their town, might find that a different company will work well, too.

I looked this Texas de brazil up. They are in a lot of places. Some of these grills don't have any gluten bread - just the traditional cheese bread made with tapioca flour.

Report back on here after you eat there, please. Edited: Duh! You said you would! :)

We have two Brazilian steakhouses here near me in Utah. Both are awesome. Both also have the Brazilian cheesebread which is to die for and naturally gluten free! I am so thrilled to have a place to go that is almost entirely gluten free and served bread that I can eat. I'm guessing that most people don't even know it's gluten free.

I think they have one of these Texas ones in SLC.

I checked it out and they do! So that makes three around here, sort of. The other two both have locations in SLC but also have locations way closer to me also. I love spending an occasional day up in the city but have no desire to drive up there just for dinner. 

 

And when you decide you are in love with Brazilian cheesebread let us know. I'll share a recipe so you can have it at home. You need a mini-muffin pan for it though.

Hello All,

 

As promised here's my review of Texas de Brazil. HOLY CRAP IT WAS AMAZING! :P

 

The chef came out and walked me through the tremendous salad bar. There were only four things at the salad bar that I could not eat! The salads were all without croutons, they had the croutons in a separate bowl. There was shrimp, salmon, soups, all different salads and cheeses. And at this particular location (in Yonkers, NY) ALL of the meats were gluten free. The chef did tell me that at some locations the sausage is the only meat we can't have.

 

The cuts of meat were delicious, and the cheese bread - oh don't get me started on the cheese bread - it was delicious! Adelaide, please please share your cheese bread recipe!!

 

It was pricey - not someplace you can eat every week - but WELL worth the money. The service was great, and the chef came out to check on me twice. I ate there Saturday night and have had no stomach issues at all. I highly recommend!

 

So there's my five star review. I hope you're all having a good day today!

This is the recipe I use and it has never failed me. I use half cheddar and half parm. I like to add a load of garlic and some basil to it to go with pasta as a sub for garlic bread. I've also been known to mince apples and use those in place of half of the cheese and add sage to go with pork. Tried a few times replacing some or all of the oil with butter, that is a no go. They're just so fun and so relatively cheap to play with. I've considered trying a breakfast one with crumbled bacon or sausage in it. But that whole "not supposed to eat sausage or bacon" thing is getting in the way. :lol: (Of course I'm not supposed to be near the cheese either so I indulge in these less frequently these days.)

 

Sorry about being slow. I'm a little touched in the head these days on remembering what I was doing. A swift kick in the pants or a message will generally get me back in line. :P

    • I just saw your profile says thalassemia. My doc blames part of the microcytic anemia on thalassemia trait even though all my thalassemia gene tests have come back negative (and I don't have the right ethnic background). In a way I am hoping it is a FODMAP (carbohydrate) sensitivity instead of a gluten allergy because at least with the FODMAP you just have to stay low FODMAP and don't have to worry about crumbs and gluten cross-contamination like with celiac. I will check back in in 6 months once I see whether there are specific foods I can't eat or if it really does come down to gluten  Thanks for your support!!
    • Good for you for trying to manage your health.  My only suggestion would be to find another doctor.  Obviously, he does not even follow standard recommendations for screening.  I would worry that he overlooks other things too.  It never hurts to get a second opinion.  Second opinions have saved my family from unwanted surgeries and incorrect treatment.   The IgA (Immunoglobulin A) Test, in the case of celiac disease testing,  is a control test.  If he had ordered it, you would have known if the results are valid or not.  Now you are left in diagnostic Limboland.  Again, my TTG was negative it has never been positive even in follow-up testing.   You can go gluten free for life.  My hubby did that 17 years ago some 12 years prior to my diagnosis (per the advice of his GP and my my allergist).  But he will be the first to tell you that I get way more support from family, friends and medical. I wish you well!  
    • Okay so I had a peanut butter milkshake from steak n shake last night. I'm nearly positive that every thing else I've had recently has been gluten free. I have been feeling like my stomach is acting up a bit lately, but after this milkshake it is so much more intense. I considered maybe I'm sensitive to dairy too, but in the last few days  I've had plenty of dairy that didn't make me react  like this. The steak n shake website didn't list any real specifics on ingredients for milkshakes. I read in other forums that some shakes use a malt mix or syrup ( which I didn't see mentioned on the site), but it is corn based. I called the my local steak n shake and the guy said he is "pretty sure" it's corn based.  I called the customer service line and they couldn't tell me if it was gluten free or not. I found ONE listing on a website that said all shakes were gluten free expect peanut butter and one other flavor. I know this seems like a lot for one shake, but I'm so tired of not knowing what makes me sick. Has anyone else had an experience with this or has anymore knowledge about steak and shakes products?
    • So my tTG-IgA result came back negative. Doc did not do the total IgA so I could be in the 2% false negative. However my ferritin continues to fall (at 25 now so getting borderline to need another iron infusion, 6 months ago it was 50) and reflux was keeping me up at night so after the blood test I went on a gluten free and low FODMAP diet. 6 days later my reflux is gone! I had no idea it could work that quickly. I still feel like there is a lump in my esophagus and have a bit of difficulty swallowing (think I still have irritation in that area) but no more acid and regurgitation! Also have not had a single episode of gas or urgency or days with 8 BMs.  It has only been 6 days so maybe I am just having a good spell but am going to continue gluten free and low FODMAP for a month and then see if there are any FODMAP foods I can eat (but not gluten unless my doc decides I should have a biopsy) (I miss pears and apples). I guess the real test is to see if my ferritin levels start to go up-testing again in 6 months. The diet is very restrictive but worth it if it gets rid of the reflux and other symptoms. BTW post-menopausal (and before that I had an IUD for 10 years TMI) so no periods to blame for chronic microcytic/hypochromic anemia. Doc says "that's normal for you, you just don't absorb iron very well".
    • Did you know that there are so many issues and questions surrounding celiac disease that even doctors who specialize in it find that the scientific data changes every six months, and this includes research data, new diagnostic and testing recommendations, and its connections to other diseases and conditions. In fact, many of us who think we have "arrived" and know it all might actually need a refresher course on the disease. View the full article
