    Amazonia vs Texas De Brazil

    I am seing alot of advertising and talk about Amazonia lately. I was curious how it compares to Texas De Brazil. I am an unabashed Texas lover, and find the quality of meats fantastic. How do Amazonia's meat and price compare to Texas?

    T de B and Amazonia are pretty much the same with similar offerings. T de B is a bit more expensive, but you can get a discount through their website to help out. The salad bar is more extensive at T de B and there is more seating. We used to alternate the 2 restaurants year to year, but prefer T de B. The welcome pack at the airport will have a drink coupon for T de B and Aruba Today usually has an ad for Amazonia for 2 free drinks with the ad. The drink is a Brazilian specialty capirahana (sp?).. like a rum and lime drink. Quite refreshing.

    To get the discount coupons for T de B, you have to go to their web site and register for their mailing list. Do not do this until about a week or 2 before you will be in Aruba because the coupon they send you in the E-mail is only good for about 1 month from the time you receive it. When you register, they also ask for your birthday, and then every year they E-mail you another coupon just before your birthday. The coupons are for 25% off, and some are even for 50% off.

    Have never tried Amazonia, but love Texas...of course we usually go on the night we arrive on the island since you really don't get anything to eat on the plane we are usually famished by the time we get to the island.

    Since 1980, and throughout the many changes, we still love going downtown in Oranjestad.

    I couldn't let this one go by without chiming in.

    We've been to both a few times and up until last January, we liked them both equally.

    Last January we definitely preferred TdB. Their quality, service and atmosphere were much superior to Amazonia's.

    Amazonia'sa salad bar had been cut back in size by quite a bit. The size of the salad bar may not seem that important in Brazilian bbq, but not everyone wants to be just a carnivore in these places. For some, having a large variety of salad bar items is important.

    The night we visited Amazonia last January, someone I think was a little heavy-handed in putting salt in the marinade. The meat, almost all cuts, was so salty it took almost a gallon of Heiniken (not altogether a bad thing) or iced tea to wash it down.

    We are booked to go back to Aruba next January, and we'll be back at TdB then. we'll go back to Amazonia eventually, but not for a while.

    Have a great weekend.

    My daughter & I don't eat meat and go to TdB just for the salad bar

    Last time we were there (2006) I thought it was a bit smaller/less selection that years past, but still so much available it wasn't a problem
