    I am highly surprised that Brazil did not make this list. I know that in Brazil the #1 popular restaurant is Meat buffet based restaurant called “Churrascaria”.

    Hmmm, living in SOuth Africa where the meat is cheap and plentiful I really thought bthat we would be amongst the top meat eaters in the world. That is obviously not the case. I wonder why this is so?
