You won’t get your hands on hot dog or hamburgers here. These globally-inspired BBQ restaurants are full of succulent—and at times exotic—meats with smokey umami flavours.
Here are five best spots for global-style grilled eats.
If you’re looking for a protein-packed meal, this Brazilian BBQ house offers rodizio (all-you-can-eat) service for lunch and dinner. You can choose one or all of the seven meat options from the lunch menu while at dinner there is a selection of 11 meats including garlic top sirloin, honey mustard lamb, chicken hearts, rosemary pork loin, and many more along with bottomless salad from their salad bar (to help reduce the cardiovascular disease, of course).
Address: 100 5920 Macleod Trail SW
If you’re looking to feel like a lean mean grilling machine, head over to Gyu-Kaku to grill their well-seasoned selection of meats including skirt steak marinated in a miso sauce, garlic shrimp, bistro hanger steak, or thinly sliced Yaki-Shabu with plenty more seafood and meat options along with veggies also—if you’re into that sort of thing.
Address: 100 638 6 Avenue SW
The best part of Rodizio is that it’s all-you-can-eat and the worst part is that you only have one stomach. This Brazilian BBQ spot has its Gauchos serving up 11 cuts of beef, poultry, pork, and lamb table-side. From their parmesan pork loin to their bacon-wrapped filet mignon, you can taste it all for one flat price.
Address: 521 10 Avenue SW
Watch your meal get made right in front of you with chef-ninjas showing off their chopping and flaming tricks as you sit around the teppan grill. This teppanyaki grill house serves up salmon teriyaki, steak and lobster, chicken, beef, and seafood dishes made to order with their unlimited (and highly addictive) secret sauce.
Address: 317 10 Avenue SW
Offering all-you-can-eat lunch and dinner specials along with BBQ combos, this is a spot where diets go to die. Choose from a selection of marinated meats like beef bulgogi, spicy chicken, and pork belly (just to name a few) with four sides of your choice, bottomless rice, and onion salad.
