When in Brazil, you have to try their sweet treat.. The brigadeiro. The traditional one is like a truffle, while the picture shows a brigadeiro tart. They also do brigadeiro cake!
I ate the brigadeiro tart at “Bio” restaurant by the famous chef Alex Atala. He also runs the restaurant DOM, which was rated the 4th best restaurant in the world in 2012.
This is the Brigadeiro Cake I was talking about.. It was amazing! You can find it at the market called “Empório Santa Maria” in São Paulo. It’s a food store to begin with, but inside they have the delicious cakes waiting for you. From cheese cake to meringue and lemon tart, you will go bananas, it’s hard to control oneself when you see all the choices. However, the choice is seriously easy after tasting the Brigadeiro cake!
Chocolate is always a good idea…
