Brigadeiro love

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…

São Paulo ~ a food heaven

From tropical fruits, to sweet and savory, this city offers everything you desire.

I ate at “Bio” restaurant, an Amazonian river fish with açaí mousse and brown rice. It tasted amazing! This restaurant is a must-try for those who love to eat healthy. The waitresses don’t speak English though, but luckily you get the menu in English. However, they are super nice and try their best to help you. After leaving this restaurant I ended up feeling energized and content, because here it’s only good vibes, and most importantly delicious food!

Not a surprise then, that this restaurant is one of my favorites. They also serve breakfast, opening at 8 in the morning. Since I love breakfast, I got super happy. I tried the açaí bowl with granola and banana, because when in Brazil, you can’t miss out on their açaí! I chose 500 ml, but it was a lot haha. You are good with 300 ml because it makes you full. Anyways, it didn’t matter since it was so good so I finished it all! As I mentioned, I thought it was not enough, so I ordered as well a tapioca crepe with cocoa paste and nut butter. Wow, that was amazing. You have to order that, you just have to. And when you do you will understand how amazingly good that was. I still dream of it;)
