Chima Brazilian Steakhouse is derived from the word chimarro, which is a typical drink from Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil and is greatly enjoyed by the people of that region. Chimarro is a Gaucho tradition that follows the peasants and townsfolk everyday living. The name comes from the Spanish word, Cimarron, which is of colonial origin and means bitter taste. The drink was served by the friendly and hospitable Guarani Indians to their Spanish guests, who were greatly impressed. The Guarani Indians were unique, not just because of their docile and happy nature, but also for their proud, dignified manner and their constant consumption of this exceptional beverage. It didn't take long for the colonists to recognize the curative and invigorating properties of chimarro. To this day, Rio Grande do Sul, a rich, modern state, preserves that tradition of warm hospitality. When the Spanish entertain, a chimarro beverage is always in the hands of their guests. This act engenders close personal relationships because the receptacle or cuia (coo-ya) is passed from hand to hand, much like the pipe of peace, and lends itself to friendly and intimate conversation. Plus it is a great partner to Churrasco (Brazilian barbeque) served rodizio style, being an excellent diuretic and digestive aid. The chimarro has always represented a regional statement and gesture of cordiality toward guests. This is why the word Chima was chosen for the steakhouse- in honor of these great hosts.
