Carnivores in Punta Cana make a beeline for chef Walter Fortes’ Brazilian churrascaria in El Cortecito. Like all good Brazilian steakhouses, it offers plates of bacon-wrapped chicken breasts, spicy sausages, pork chops, and beef filets—but most people come here to splurge on Brazil’s famous all-you-can-eat rodízio for RD$995 (US$23). Servers just keep circling your table with various sword-like skewers laden with a variety of their grilled offerings, offering to carve you off more and more slices of sizzling hot meat until you finally say no mas!
