REVIEW: Stuffed for Lunch on Delicious Brazilian Food at Tempero de Minas

Right in the centre of Lisbons business quarter, just by Saldanha (map), I found a great place to try traditional Brazilian food. Tempero de Minas proudly announces his food from the state of Minas Gerais. But adds some other great options too.



As I got in I was amazed by the great buffet they were serving. A long way from the common rodizios other Brazilian restaurants hand out, mainly (excellent) all you can eat grilled meat and sausages. The variety of dishes is uncommon, with over 30 choices of main courses plus another 20 for dessert. I could hardly believe when they told me they make everything themselves. Rice, beans, cod fish, fried green banana, corn pure with meat, beans pure, cock with sauce, pork with pineapple, cabbage and shrimp dishes are just a few of the choices. And you can fill up a plate with anything you want just for 6,5 Euros. Add another 3 Euros for a small plate with their delicious traditional desserts – fruit comfitures, puddings, cakes and tarts, passion fruit mouse, coconut cake, milk pudding, and so on. If you are really hungry, from 17 Euros you can go back as many times as you want.

DSCF2575bI was mostly amazed by the quality. Everything I tried was absolutely yummy. Add their natural tropical juices and… you can imagine.

Diner cost 20 Euros with all you can eat buffet and music on weekends.

Opened everyday from 8am until 11pm; at Sundays until 4pm

Where: Av. Luis Bivar 83
