[eat] All you can eat Brazilian steak at Copacabana @ Itaewon, Seoul

Learn this word – Churrasco. In case you are wondering what that means, Churrasco is a type of roast meat popular across Latin America. There are several Churrasquerias (Brazilian Steakhouses) in Seoul, but the one I find myself frequenting is Copacabana in Itaewon. The cost? 29,000 won. Now, this might sound costly, but it gets you unlimited refills of pork, chicken, sausage, and, most importantly, numerous different cuts of top quality beef. All cuts of meat roasted over an open flame, allowing you to enjoy the pure, unadulterated flavor of the meat. While the bacon-wrapped chicken is juicy, the sausages plump and flavorful, and their version of samgyeopsal crisp from the fire pit, it is the beef that really stands out. The top sirloin is tender, juicy and packed full of meaty goodness, while the bottom sirloin is perhaps even more flavorful, with a bit more grease mixing with the meat juices – choose the medium rare option! Do try not to stuff yourself on the meat, however, as you will want to save a bit of room for the cinnamon sugar-covered grilled pineapple, whose flavor, unexpectedly, is only enhanced by the leftover juices on your plate.

You are given this piece of steak at the beginning of the meal:

Medium rare — just my type:

Stuff from their salad bar: the beef stew is surprisingly good. I could eat it all day but :O

Sausages: love the bacon wrapped one.

Bottom sirloin: my fav

Top sirloin:

Samgyeopsal aka fresh bacon:

Make sure to ask for pineapple to finish off the meal. Such a delightful ending to a great meal.

Brazilian drink :DDD

Subway line 6, Itaewon station, exit 1. Take the first right up the hill. When you get to the end of this alley, turn left. Copacabana will be on your left in about 15 meters.
