San Antonio Gets a Taste of Brazil on Wheels: Picanha na Brasa Food Truck

San Antonio's love affair with Brazilian steakhouses is undeniable. But for many, the all-you-can-eat churrascaria experience can be a splurge. Enter Picanha na Brasa, a food truck bringing the bold flavors of Brazil to the city's vibrant food truck scene – and at a more wallet-friendly price point.

Nestled within the lively Bésame food truck park on East Grayson Street, Picanha na Brasa offers a taste of Brazil that's both authentic and accessible. The star of the show, of course, is picanha – a cut of top sirloin known for its tenderness, rich marbling, and distinct flavor. Here, it's available roasted spicy for a fiery kick ($19.95) – a must-try for adventurous palates.

But Picanha na Brasa goes beyond just the signature dish. Craving lamb? They've got succulent chops for $27.95. Feeling the need for a quick bite? Their $15 picanha taco plate offers a satisfying and flavorful option.

Looking to explore beyond beef? The menu boasts other enticing options like charcoal-cooked ribeyes, bacon-wrapped chicken, and even a picanha sandwich served with crinkle fries. Don't forget to end your Brazilian escapade on a sweet note with their decadent crème brûlée.

While Picanha na Brasa doesn't replicate the all-you-can-eat format of traditional steakhouses, it offers a solution for those seeking a more curated experience. Their Family na Brasa plate ($47.95) is perfect for sharing, featuring a medley of grilled meats like bacon-wrapped chicken, pork ribs, and picanha, accompanied by a selection of sides and sauces.

To complement the savory flavors, guests can quench their thirst with a refreshing Brazilian lemonade or indulge in a specialty cocktail from the adjacent Bésame bar. Don't miss the fresh cheese bread, a staple Brazilian side, along with salads and traditional Brazilian-style beans to round out your meal.

Picanha na Brasa is a breath of fresh air for San Antonio's Brazilian food scene. It offers a delicious and affordable way to experience the vibrant flavors of Brazil, all from the comfort of a food truck. So, ditch the fancy reservations and head to Bésame for an authentic Brazilian adventure on wheels.
