The Skinny: Saying you must go to Fogo de Chao for the cheese bread is like saying you must go to the circus for the popcorn.  It misses the whole damn point of the show.  And there is a show at Fogo.  Waiters line up carrying 12 inch spears full of freshly flamed and sizzling meat, carving it tableside for your chest thumping pleasure… mmmm.

And the cheese bread?  Yeah… it’s there.  It sits, lying quietly on the table, away from the action.  Hoping there might be a lull in the meat parade for someone to keep their mouth occupied.  The taste is fine, maybe even slightly better than fine.  But no one – not one person – should go to Fogo and sacrifice any part of empty stomach on the bread.  It’s a waste of valuable space you’ll need for the carnivore ceremony that carries on as long as you can.
