Go west-side, over the Marginal Pinheiros to Ton Hoi, whose walls are plastered with gastronomy awards for its self-proclaimed ‘authentic Chinese cuisine’. Eat starters of fried Won Ton with beers on the balcão overlooking the glass-fronted kitchen. The ambience is bright and the service exemplary at Ton Hoi, which, thankfully, has never tried to ‘cash in’ on its success.
The emphasis is on quality not quantity, and as such, you can’t order takeaway on the busy weekends, and the restaurant itself only opens from Wednesday through to Saturday. Try the crab (siri), which comes with five whole tasty crustaceans piled on a plate, and beef bifon – rice noodles. (To order the signature dish of Peking duck – which feeds 4 people – you need to order with 24 hours notice.).
