I've heard Sao Paulo is famous for its diversity of food. Without spending the earth for a meal, how can I best get a good impression of what the state has on offer?

    Here, you can eat really good spending just like US$ 8, but you have to know where to go. You must try our pasta and our pizza; I guarantee it´s the best in the world. There´s some well known places like Castelão. There you will spend something like US$ 30. Also try our steak house, "churrascarias". Try Fogo de Chão. It´s a little more expensive, something like US$ 35, without drinks. Another good thing we have to offer is our japanese food. Try the japanese neighborhood "Liberdade". almost 11 years ago

    I would recommend a small restaurant called Meaipe. Is out of normal people route, it's not beautiful or fancy. But you will have the best moqueca (a dish made of fish, prawns inside a cream made of fish). Rua Fradique Coutinho, 276. Vila Madalena. +5511 3088-9103.
    Also Galinheiro Grill is a nice place to have chicken and fried polenta and/or manioca. In Galinheiro stay away from fancy drinks, they are very expensive. Rua Inacio Pereira da Rocha, 231.
    Last, but not least, go to Bexiga and choose one of the Italian cantinas you have there. Just say to the taxi driver: me leve ao Bexiga. over 9 years ago

    Try a mortadela sandwich at the top floor in the Mercado Municipal (the Municipal Market) in the centre of São Paulo.
    Another one of my favourites is "pastel", a thin deep-fried pastry filled with a variety of different things at one of the city's outdoor markets ( or "feiras ). over 9 years ago

    You are not on the right spot for cheap food haha but id say try a "pastel de feira" ask for the day of the street market nearby the place you are staying. There is a fixed spot at av paulista but idk the address. A good restaurant tho, and really traditional is Frangó. And a great one for lunch is a small chain called prime burger (or lancheria da cidade. Gourmet Burgers and millshakes). Not cheap, but its not crazy expensive. Also sushi, japonese food in general actually, its a great option in sp over 9 years ago

    Best cost/benefit place in Sao Paulo is an italian cantinna owned by a Japanese family (yes, I know) called Nipolitana. Every single item in the menu tastes great, service is very cordial and place is simple, yet cozy. Located in Alameda Campinas, between Itu and Jau streets over 9 years ago
