Meat Sword Parade
Okay, maybe a parade of meat swords doesn't exactly sound ridiculously manly, but picture this: You're sitting in a restaurant. The smell of roasted meat caresses your nostrils with a delectable assault of carnivorous aromas.
A man in a black suit approaches your table bearing a 3-foot-long sword laden with steak and slices a hunk of juicy beef right onto your plate. Just as he leaves, another appears with an impressive skewer of seasoned chicken. And then, there's roast pork. And then, there's a different kind of steak. And then, there's lobster.
Get the picture?
We're talking, of course, about churrascaria, known more commonly as Brazilian Barbecue, and popularized by restaurants like Fogo de Chao and Texas de Brazil the best places for manly foods.
The passadores - which translates to meat waiters according to Wikipedia and is basically the coolest job title ever - march around the restaurant with gigantic sword-like skewers of meat, and occasionally pineapple. As long as you give the signal, the meat will keep coming. Usually, there are some side dishes and vegetables available for your perusal, too, but who cares about that. Meat swords!
Of course, we promised a vegetarian option on this list, too. If meat parades aren't really your thing, then maybe you'd prefer:
