Clink: Texas de Brasil

By Aurora Rodríguez

Step inside Texas de Brasil’s South Beach location and you’ll find yourself welcomed by a buffet jam packed with delicious Latin flavors.

Of course the cuts of meat definitely stand out – such as their juicy skirt steak and chicken with bacon – but it won’t be a Brazilian fiesta until you accompany your selections with one of the spot’s signature caipirinhas or caipiroskas. Try one at their bar with a view, then challenge yourself to make it at home.
