São Paulo, Brazil

It seems for most destinations, there is one place that every says you just have to go to. Sometimes it’s a particular religious building, a place of historical significance, a cultural center or indeed a natural landmark. São Paulo is in no way short of places to visit in any of these categories. And yet it was food, which seemed to crop up most in my chats on the way to Brazil. They must know a thing or two about a good meal down in Brazil…

Lunch in the market hall

Well, it’s certainly true to say that opinions on the hotly-contested topic of food vary. Naturally based on tastes. But I have to say, I was suitably impressed by the food on offer in the market hall. As for the size of these pulled beef sandwiches, I think we could quite easily have shared one. That said, it was so good I’m quite pleased we decided not to.
