At weekends, you’ll spot this steakhouse at least a block away thanks to the crowds milling about outside, drinking cold beers while they wait for a table. This joint is Argentinian by name and Argentinian by nature, down to the myriad authentic cuts of meat on the menu. The jury is out on whether the vacio (also known as the ‘corte especial 348’) reigns supreme over the bife de chorizo, but get a group together (each order feeds at least two) and you can decide for yourself.
Team your beef – which comes as bloody as you want it – with the papa tasso – crunchy fried potato slices. The pork ribs are the dish to go for as an alternative to beef, and the empanadas are said to be the best in São Paulo. Exposed roof beams, wicker chairs, rustic wooden tables and plants lend this former neighbourhood bungalow a homely, traditional feel.
