Street food, "per kilo", general, recipes....: "Best way to try local food!" Top 5 Page for this destination Street food, per kilo, general, recipes.... Tip by Lady_Disdain

Kilo restaurnts are everywhere in São Paulo - from the simplest and cheapest to very sofisticated!

They are common in the business areas (Av. Paulista, Brigadeiro Faria Lima) and are usually open only for lunch. This is where people eat everyday when working out and is a good way to try "everyday" food. Just take a plate, serve from the buffet and pay for the weight. There will be a salad section then hot dishes (usually two or three meat or chicken selections and side dishes). There will usually be a brown bean stew (feijão) that is eaten with rice by everyone and, on Wednesdays, the tradicional feijoada (black beans stewed with dried meats).

And you can see all the locals as well!
