Saboroso Brazilian Steakhouse A Great Night Out

Saturday evening we had the opportunity to go out for dinner with some of my Saskatoon real estate clients and they booked us at Saboroso, the new Brazilian Steakhouse on 8th Street. It was amazing! We had the 7pm seating which was great as I wouldn’t want to go any later than that for fear of a food hangover. First thing to note is that you need to have a reservation. We saw several people attempting to walk in but all were turned away. I have been told you need to book in advance as well, especially on weekends.

I am not a big meat eater so the ‘all you can eat meat’ which is called the “Rodizio” wasn’t a big draw for me but everyone else in the group got their money’s worth. They were able to start with some salads and bean dishes and then the meat started to come! I ordered off the menu and had a wonderful shrimp dish. They have a good selection of food choices for non red meat eaters. I did try some of their meat as my fiancé let me have some of his and the chicken was amazing! I don’t think there was a choice that people did not like but the lamb was surprisingly one of the most popular with our group. You have a cube on your table with a red side and a green side. If the green side is up the servers will stop every time and see if you want more. They are called “Gauchos” and they are busy. I think the $34 was well worth it for all of the fine meats. We will definitely be back!

It is great to see more unique Saskatoon restaurants and as the city grows I think we will continue to see amazing new restaurants that appeal to all types of foodies.
