DESTINATIONS brazil saopaulo Dining Arábia


Visit Arábia, an award-winning eatery, for a taste of the mouth-watering flavours of the Middle East. Their signature dishes, such as Moroccan rice with roasted almonds and chicken with stuffed artichoke bottoms filled with ground beef, are sure to tantalize your taste buds. The restaurant's spacious dining room makes it the ideal place to spend a few hours, whether you prefer a strong coffee or a refreshing mint tea. The mezze selection is also a huge hit among patrons and is not to be missed.


São Paulo's best restaurants are to be found in the Jardins, Itaim Bibi, Pinheiros, and Vila Madalena neighbourhoods. However, for those on a smaller budget, you can get a delicious hearty meal at side street restaurants called "lanchonetes", which are a mix between a café and a bakery. The best non-Brazilian cuisine tends to be Italian, Middle Eastern, Chinese, and Japanese. The Portuguese restaurants are pretty spectacular too.
