sum?

The former is a serving style while the latter is a cuisine. The latter
might also appear in restaurants that employ a serving style of rodizio.
Btw, this is the first time I've been exposed to that term either in print
or in reality but coincidentally, I ate lunch at such a place the the other
day here in Chiang Mai. We ate quite a bit of food there as they just
continued to bring it to the table

John, at this point, would you please you put all this into a summary, or a
full proposal, so we can see the entire package?

Cheers,
Dave
