Churrasco with Chimichurri

Churrasco, also known as skirt steak in English, is a Latin American dish consisting of grilled beef or meat. It is typically served with green chimichurri sauce, and comes in its best form at these restaurants around Miami.

Cafe Charlotte

Cafe Charlotte is a casual countertop cafe located in the heart of South Beach with Argentinean and Venezuelan influences. While churrasco is usually paired with chimichurri sauce, Cafe Charlotte doesn’t use it because the beef flavor is so strong. Order it with a side of fried yuca for a more traditional Latin meal.
