Braza Grill Adventure

This past Wednesday night, December 7th, we went to Braza Grill in Murray to let Tom try some more Brazilian dishes.  His Grandma and Grandpa went with us.  We had a great time and the food was delicious!  All of the young kids working there were from Brazil and they were SO nice!  They told us what part of the country they were from and asked where Tom was going.... when they found out Belem, the first thing they said was it's really hot there!  One cute girl told us that a lot of people in Brazil speak English because when they start school, they have a choice to learn English or Spanish as a second language and she said that most choose English.  She had only been here about 2 1/2 years and was very fluent in English.  I am sure it depends on what part of the country you are in, but that was encouraging - even though I really want Tom to become fluent in Portuguese.  Anyway, the food was fantastic and we would highly recommend it - a little on the pricey side, though.  I was really proud of Tom and he tried a lot of different things.  My dad, Dave and David ate chicken hearts and the rest of us drew the line at that.  David was brave, though, and tried them even though it gave him "the willies" to think about what he was eating.  He said they didn't taste bad but were a little chewy. So, if you want some great Brazilian food - check out Braza Grill.  Very nice atmosphere and fantastic food.  Thanks to Brenda and Ian for a great recommendation!  


  1. I am so glad you are keeping up with your blog posts. I really enjoy hearing about everything that is going on even the part about eating yucky chicken hearts!!! I am so glad Tom's Visa came through. I know how much you will miss him and he will miss you guys, but what a great experience he will have. I am sure it is something that will benefit him and stay with him all his life.
    I miss all of you so much and wish we could be there tomorrow for Tom's farewell but know that we will be thinking of all of you. And keep remembering how fast a year goes by. Love and miss you all TONS and I will call you and find out how things went on Sunday.

  2. So glad you guys went! Ian LOVES that place...his favorite thing-the rice & beans because he ate that almost every day of his mission. ;)
