WHAT GALETO IS ALL ABOUT
As proud Brazilians who love our country’s culture, tradition and obviously food, our founders envisioned a place that would take its guests to Brazil through a unique culinary experience.
The flagship for this vision was Brazil’s most traditional culinary concept, the Brazilian “churrasco” (choo-has-sco).
Our first Galeto Brazilian Steakhouse was launched in 2014 in the city of Oakland, CA to start the pursuit for a culinary voyage by sharing our country’s culture and evolving the Brazilian steakhouse concept.
At Galeto, we start your culinary journey to Brazil with lots of tasteful nuances that will make you dream of it for days. Making the best Brazilian “churrasco” (choo-has-sco) is simply a result of an unforgettable cultural sharing experience.
THE TALE OF A COOKING BREAKTHROUGH
The art of fire-roasting meats was born in the 17th century during the colonial period of Brazil. The creators of this unique cooking technique are the Brazilian cowboys, known as “Gauchos”.
This cooking breakthrough tale occurred over 300 years ago, when an unknown “Gaucho” fire-roasted the first Brazilian churrasco (choo-has-sco) at a camp-side feast.
The churrasco (choo-has-sco) tale has many versions, some say that the first fire-roasted meat was beef-ribs, others rib-eye, but apart from nuances this unknown “Gaucho” changed our country’s cuisine forever.
For this reason we see the authentic art of roasting fresh meat over hot stone coals, perfectly seasoned with rock salt as a mouthwatering metaphor for our culinary voyage to Brazil.
