I’m always, always, always talking about where to eat outside of Brazil, so you’re more than right to ask for tips around here.
It makes total sense.
It’s probably because when I’m home I go out very little. I virtually don’t go out. But one of the few things that make me leave the house is to have a NICE MEAL. Alright, going to concerts and friends’ birthdays also does the trick. But having good food and drinks make for the top 3 reasons I’ll let go of netflix + my bed.
And that’s exactly what happened – last week I left the house to get to know a new restaurant, and I’m here to tell all about it. Because it was really, really worth it.
I went there for dinner, so it had that dim lit atmosphere, low lights, candlelights, a bunch of people on the street having drinks, which not even the rain (yep, it rained :/) was able to stop.
I was STARVING when I got there, so I began to order…
I started with the scallops.
I knew they were the house’s special and, man…
All I can say is that I miss it already!
Can’t wait to go back there and have that experience again.
You drip the content of the shell into your mouth, like a shot of scallop with some amazing olive oil, and there you’ll find hapiness.
I promise it will be one of the best you’ll ever have.
The perks of being friends with one of the owners (those two guys above – Stefan Weitbrecht and Victor Collor – guilty of charge of feeding us so well!) is that they make a sort of tasting menu, and I tried almost everything!
Chicken hearts, mushrooms and (PLEASE) seafood cakes for those who enjoy some deep-fry.
As a main dish, I tried the duck rice (chef’s recommendation), which I completed with the crayfish in the picture above, which work as a starter.
I literally licked my fingers.
A bunch of incredible cocktails, pretty nice wine menu as well, everything was good!
That’s my recommendation if you’re in São Paulo.
Maybe we’ll bump into each other there!
