Chama meaning “flame” in Portuguese, is the essence of an authentic, Brazilian steakhouse. This “flame” also describes the “passion” the gauchos, Brazilian cowboys, have for their culture and tradition. This Heritage spans back centuries as European immigrants migrated to Southern Brazil. In the vast plains and fertile lands, a region known as Pampas, the gauchos tend to large herds of cattle as they roam and graze through Southern Brazil. At the end of the day, they gather around the churrasco, the fire pit or grill, to eat and share stories.
