When in Brazil, do as the Brazilians do with a daily dose of rice and beans. A taste of traditional Brazilian cooking at Dalva e Dito may just be the most expensive rice and beans you can eat in São Paulo, but many would argue that it’s worth the cost. Chef Alex Atala, whose culinary prowess has gone global, has plucked the best of regional dishes from across the country at this sister restaurant to D.O.M.

Unusual local ingredients from the Amazon to the cerrado create some really unique tastes such as the surubim, a fresh water fish served with a lemongrass sauce and jambu – a lip- tingling green herb. Choose from two types of moquecacapixaba or the spicier baiana. To complete the experience, sit by the big kitchen window to watch the chefs at work.
