One of my favorite things to do when landing at Sao Paulo’s Guarulhos International Airport is a stop at the Balloon Café for a coxinha de frango.
In Sao Paulo’s upscale Morumbi neighborhood, I went to the Morumbi Shopping mall for lunch with my friend Fabio who writes Passageiro de Primeira, the most popular Brazilian frequent flyer blog. To start, we had a complimentary basket of bread containing my favorite, pao de queijo (Brazilian cheese bread) and other various breads.
I had frango (chicken) with pasta which was delicious.
I washed it down with Guarana Kuat which is a famous Brazilian soft drink.
In the Faria Lima neighborhood, I went to a restaurant called Santo Grao and had a cappuccino which came with a cookie.
In the neighborhood of Rua Augusta, I had a slice of pizza from Violeta Bar & Restaurant which was one of the best I’ve ever had and now I know why Paulistanos (locals from Sao Paulo) absolutely love pizza.
Also on Rua Augusta, there was a snack restaurant which I ordered a pastel de queijo, a popular Brazilian deep fried pastry.
In the Avenida Paulista (Avenue Paulista) neighborhood, I went to a bakery called Bella Paulista and had a delicious pastel de nata (Portuguese egg tart).
Also on Avenida Paulista, I went to Fran’s Café for breakfast and had a pao de queijo with a cup of cappuccino.
In the Liberdade neighborhood, I had delicious Japanese food at a kilo restaurant called Itiriki.
Beneath Republica metro station in downtown Sao Paulo, I had delicious mini pao de queijo from Forno Minas.
