You can have a seemingly endless offer of a variety of meat at Tucanos. This Brazilian grill has 10 locations in states including Idaho, Utah, and New Mexico. The way it works is: you can grab food from the salad bar as many times as you’d like; using a cylinder divided into three equal parts (colored red, yellow and green like a traffic light), you’ll indicate to the servers that it’s okay to approach your table to offer you different kinds of meat. If you want them to keep coming, the green should be at the top. If you want them to stop, flip the cylinder so red is on top. The meat is incredibly savory! And it’s also fun to try meat like a chicken heart if you haven’t already done so. Tucanos offers a unique buffet experience with quality food, so give them a try!
With a tropical-inspired atmosphere, The Reef is a nice spot to eat and have drinks in Downtown Boise. There’s a diverse range of items on the menu (among other options, there are Mexican, Thai, and seafood items), and the servings are generous enough that you’ll either leave the place full or full with a to-go box. The cocktail menu is diverse as well, but I’m fond of the bro juice bowl because it included a small blue flame in a cylinder placed in the middle. That makes it extra fun to drink! In terms of service, our server was pleasant and was accommodating when we changed our minds about orders or requested for an explanation about menu items.
