Award-winning churrascaria, Texas de Brazil, opened Thursdays at Central City in Seoul, South Korea. The new 7,800-square foot restaurant accommodates 150 guests and features a chef's table, an open-view grill in the dining area, a signature wine wall and a bar/lounge area. Located in Gangnam, the new Seoul location is the company's 40th restaurant and fifth international location.
“This is a very exciting day for Texas de Brazil because this is our first restaurant in Seoul and our first in the Asia Pacific region," says Salim Asrawi, chief operating officer of Texas de Brazil. "Central City is the perfect location to introduce our unique Brazilian-American churrascaria dining experience to Seoul residents and visitors. Our partnership with Sun At Food ensures that Texas de Brazil will be positioned for long term success in the Korean market for years to come."
"We're thrilled to open the first restaurant in Asia and introduce Texas de Brazil's authentic churrascaria dining experience to Seoul," adds Caroline Nam, president of Sun At Food. "Texas de Brazil and Sun At Food share the same vision and management philosophy with their strong expertise in the restaurant industry. We're looking forward to growing this iconic brand and making Texas de Brazil the most beloved churrascaria in Korea."
At each table, gauchos will carve an array of grilled beef, lamb, pork, chicken and sausage, as directed by the guest's red and green disks that indicate when to bring more meat or when a break is needed. The steakhouse also offers an elaborate salad area, beautifully decorated by large tropical flowers and featuring 50 fresh gourmet items, such as imported cheeses, charcuterie, roasted vegetables, and creamy lobster bisque. Texas de Brazil also offers an extensive award-winning wine list, rich in South American varietals.
