At the ground floor of Copan, São Paulo’s most iconic building, designed by worldwide famous architect Oscar Niemeyer, Bar da Dona Onça serves fine versions of Brazilian typical “comfort food”. Very casual yet upscale (the prices are slightly on the expensive side), this is the place to try picadinho (beef stew garnished with rice, fried egg and banana tartare), rabada (oxtail) with polenta and watercress or, only on Saturdays, feijoada (pork and black beans stew). The caipirinha selection is also a must try – caju amigo is one of the most famous creations (cashew juice and jam mixed with lemon juice and cachaça). Do not miss the desserts: the trio elétrico (“electric trio”) comes with quindim, pudding and brigadeiro, three of the most beloved Brazilian desserts.
