Bar do Sacha A relaxed atmosphere. The costela assada no bafo (steam roasted ribs) is a must try. Rua Original, 89, Vila Madalena, Phone: 3815-7665.   

Piraja – Happy hour. Try the croquete de abóbora recheado de carne–seca (pumpkin with meat) or bolinhos de polenta com rabada also (a small cake served with meat). Their chope (beer) is great. Avenida Brigadeiro Faria Lima, 64, Pinheiros, Phone: 3815-6881.

Feitico da Vila - If you want a taste of live MPB (Brazilian Popular Music) with acclaimed songs by Brazilian music masters as Caetano Veloso, Milton Nascimento, Gilberto Gil and Chico Buarque, to name a few, this is the place to go on Fridays. The artists start playing at 10PM but if you want a table you had better get there by 10PM at the most. After that, the bar gets crowded. Besides, there is a cover charge. Before 10PM, the cover charge is R$ 6.00 for women and R$ 10.00 for men. After 10PFeitico da Vila in Sao PauloM, it is R$ 12.00 for everybody. While enjoying the music and rehearsing some Brazilian dance steps, you will feel hungry. By the way, the sandwiches are named after the artists. For instance, the delicious “Milton Nascimento” sandwich is made of dried meat (carne seca, very popular in Brazil), cheese and tomato in French bread (R$ 12.00). Try the Picanha (special Brazilian beef cut) appetizer for R$ 22.00. Once in Brazil, you have to try the Caipirinha, Caipiroska and Caipisaque. I mean, one of them at a time, not al of them mixed together. They have them all at Feitico da Villa. Cheers! Rua Inacio Pereira da Rocha, 618 – Vila Madalena – phone: (011) 3813-8868.
