Restaurants in Brazil
Brazil is one of the world’s most ethnically and culturally diverse places. We all know that, but we don’t necessarily stop to think about what it means: did you know, for instance, that Brazil has the largest Japanese community outside Japan? The majority are in São Paulo and it’s a great place to find sushi and other Japanese staples. Try out Kinoshita , to get a taste of the best. It’s been compared to Nobu and serves up a mix of modern dishes, like seared foie gras, with classic Japanese fare like super-fresh, super-traditional nigiri sushi, a ball of vinegared rice with seafood on top) or wafer-thin crisp tempura, fish or vegetables deep fried to perfection. Brazil restaurants offer diversity and something new to try.
São Paulo’s also a great place to try restaurants in Brazil specializing in the country’s native food culture, with the national dish, feijoada – a pork and bean stew - looming large in the menu at the Restaurante Figueira Rubaiyat, where it’s the special on Saturdays and Wednesdays. Here, too, you’ll find great fish and seafood dishes including native species like Pirarucu and Tambaqui.
