Our local friends have introduced us to Brasilian regional cuisine from the North East of Brasil. We share a restaurant specialty of "complete Suns meat", which features a multiplicity of different dishes with their corresponding diversity of flavours. Corned meat, beans, herbs, rice and a range of other local dishes made up the assortment. The combination is earthy and diverse... More

Sun meat ? YES. Here is one of the many places where you can eat this typical and delicious food. The place is simple but offers good food, the service is friendly and it's really close to some touristic points. I love everything in the combination, other than the meat I can also suggest the Sertão cheese :D you only... More

Been to this restaurant a couple of times since I first came to Brasília some 15 years ago. Main interest for me was and still is the food from Northeastern Brazil, although they nowadays serve other “international” dishes (beef, chicken and even pasta). As Brasília has no “local” type of food, why not trying this unsophisticated but still delicious mix... More

The food is a little expensive, last time I was there it was about R$65 but everything is delicious, specially the paçoca and the carne de sol with butter.

Considering Brasília was built by NE people, it's hard to believe this is the best Carne de Sol in town. It's a plain restaurant with fair plates to share. Carne de Sol plate costs 62 reais and serves up to 5 adults. Maybe you will need a portion of extra rice or beans... I tasted both cut and one piece... More

This place has been around for years. There are two of them in Brasilia. The one in CLS 107 (which I know well) is a hive of gluttonous activity, especially at weekends. People shouting orders, waiters bustling around with trays heaving with carne de sol, chopinhos etc. You really have to like this kind of meat (rather dry but with... More

good food from Brazilian Northeast. If you go there, stay on the basic: the traditional carne de sol com macaxeira: it is enough for 2 people.
