Traveling to Sao Paulo for business? Recommended meeting spots

If you intend to conduct business in Brazil, there’s a good chance you’ll be going to São Paulo as it is by far Brazil’s most import business center in Brazil.  Almost every major industry in Brazil is based there (as well as most of the minor ones, too), and 15% of Brazil’s gross national product is […]

Healthy food on the go: Market Ipanema

When living in Rio, Market Ipanema was one of my ‘go to’ spots for a good salad in a nice atmosphere (they had an outdoor garden area).  On my last trip to Rio I discovered that they replaced their casual dining scene moving to a smaller location to position themselves as a healthy gourmet ‘grab […]

SP: Vegetarian spot in Vila Madalena

I have nothing against vegetarians, if you are able to make that lifestyle work for you, congratulations; I on the other hand am a true carnivore.  I think I would last about 2 days as a vegetarian and that would be that (I try not to eat that many carbs and the thought of living […]

SP: Pastry heaven in Jardins

Looking For A Great Hidden Brunch Spot In Rio?

Around the corner from me on Dias Ferreira is the book store Argumento which always seems to have a crowd standing in front of it.  Well, I found out that there are a number of reasons for a crowd to be gathered in front: Book signings, storytelling/events for children (starting at 11am on Sundays) and […]
