Have you ever thought to yourself, "Man, I really wish I could just have an all-you-can-eat smorgasboard of meat brought right to my table." I'm sure any man reading this answered with an emphatic yes. Well friends, look no further than Bombasha Brazilian Steakhouse in Nashville!

Our friends introduced us to this delight on New Year's Eve this past year and we've been back a couple of times since. It. Is. So. Good. Basically, here is the rundown of the Bombasha experience:
Once seated by the hostess, you'll notice a card at each place. The card is green on one side and red on the other. This tells the gauchos (the meat guys) that you are ready and rearing for the meat course. You'll also be offered the salad bar. G chose to forego the salad bar experience and dove straight into the meat election by flipping his card to green. I made myself a small plate of greens, sun-dried tomatoes and cheese then flipped my card to green as well.
This is where things get serious....seriously delicious. Ladies and gentleman this is not for the vegetarian in your circle of friends. Bombasha boasts 11 cuts of meat. There is beef, pork, chicken and sometimes lamb. I'm a big fan of the House Special and the Parmesan Pork. This weekend's selection also offered a Parmesan Beef that was so tender it was like butter in your mouth. Wonderful, meat butter.
Not only is the food delicious at Bombasha, but so is the overall experience. Once you've flipped your card to the green side the servers, called gauchos, begin coming past your table holding what I thought to be swords skewered with meat (see above photo). They ask if you would like whichever cut of meat they have and you have the option to try it or pass. They cut the meat right at your table, so it is fresh!
Bombasha is located in Hillsboro Village on Belcourt Avenue. If you have ever eaten at Cabana you've probably tried to walk in the door to Bombasha (I sat beside the window and watched many a person stutter-step to get to the right one. Oh, and I've done it before too.). It's a little on the pricey side but totally worth it for the amount of food you get and the servers are really attentive.
Oh and PS - if you go to Bombasha, try the little rolls. They have a different texture so they aren't for everyone....but I ate the entire basket myself. Sorry I'm not sorry.
