Brazilian Rodizio Comes to South Edmonton (Pampa Brazilian Steakhouse)

Pampa Brazilian Steakhouse Edmonton Ellerslie Restaurants All You Can Eat

Ready for meat sweats south Edmonton? Pampa Brazilian Steakhouse has expanded to Ellerslie!

The beautiful new space officially opens Wednesday, August 9, 2017, bringing delicious table-side Brazilian churrascaria (rotisserie barbecue) south of the river. 

I got to check out the new location at their soft open this weekend. If you’ve never dined in this Brazilian steakhouse style, you must try it! If you have – here’s a great excuse to do it again. ;)

Pampa Brazilian Steakhouse’s second Edmonton location: 9626 Ellerslie Road in south Edmonton!

Pampa offers unlimited barbecued meat and stellar salad bar buffet for an all-in price of $50 (dinner) or $25 (lunch, less meat selection but still full salad bar). 

Red or green discs you flip at your table indicate to servers whether they should come to you with 15 different cuts of meat served on giant skewers right at your table. (Green means go!!! Once it’s set green you’re in for a parade of meat).

Such a fan of that beef rumpsteak at Pampa.

Cuts include flank, rib eye, rump, bacon wrapped chicken, pork, sausages, lamb and more! There’s even chicken heart and frog legs! (Frog legs really do taste like chicken). My favourite: the rump steak! It’s smell and taste – divine.

Little bit exotic: frog legs at Pampa! (It tastes like chicken).

I always get rice and coconut milk mashed potatoes to complement my meats, along with select salad bar items. At Pampa, you’ve got 50 salad bar items to choose from but remember you’re there for the meat not the salad! (Except, it’s good to know that you can also just be specifically there for the salad bar – it’s a reduced all you can eat price so meat lovers and vegetarians alike can enjoy this space together).

An impressive salad bar offering at Pampa.

I recommend you do one plate for your salad and a second plate for your meats (pro tip lol).

Legitimately the greatest cheese balls in existence.

And you CANNOT forget to load up on the amazing Brazilian cheese balls (pao de queijo!) which are always a table favourite (before you realize, you’ve eaten 10 of them lol).  Don’t forget to check out Pampa’s nightly specials too – additional meat and seafood options offered at no extra charge!

A beautiful space at the new Ellerslie Pampa!

Pampa’s new Ellerslie space also has four great- looking private rooms (or two very large private rooms – there’s a divider that can come down to split the rooms into 4). These rooms don’t include an additional charge to rent which is fantastic! I often get asked recommendations on where to rent private rooms in Edmonton and this is shooting right up on my list of recommendations.

Love the look of Pampa Ellerslie!

The new Ellerslie location is also way brighter (makes for great photos of my meal!!) I also love the bright red throughout the rooms (including giant red barn doors) and a really nice personal touch- throughout the rooms are large framed photos of owner Oscar Lopez and Chef Joao Dachery learning the authentic, Brazilian barbecue ways during their trips to Brazil.

We had stellar service on the soft opening (ask to be seated in Michelle Cox’s area when you go!) and our whole group left feeling extremely full and totally satisfied.

Mike loves Brazilian steakhouses!

Congratulations to Oscar, Joao the entire Pampa team on this exciting and delicious expansion! It’s nice to see that area of Edmonton continue to get some great dining options (the tasty Workshop Eatery is also around there!)

So have you been to Pampa before? Tried Brazilian rodizio before? What’dya think!

  • Got to try the @fairmontmac's new "Beast Board" today with @letsomnom and oh my gah is it a delicious feast. 🀀 For $99, this board feeds two people and includes your choice of 3 proteins (and chef's choice of vegetables / sides). πŸ™ŒπŸ» Not sure what to rave about first.. delicious beets, risotto and whipped potatoes. Even better duck, lamb, and salmon. Excellent pea purΓ©e. This is officially on the dinner menu as of Oct. 12 but you can order it off menu until then (just ask your server!) Don't forget the Fairmont also has a harvest farm to table dinner with @myprairiegardens next Friday Oct. 13! Check their page for more details @fairmontmac. And Happy Long Weekend Friday!!! 😍
