This is very very typical joint in the amazing city of Sao Paulo. If you go there this place and the Mercado itself are a must! Fair prices, very crowded but the food is amazing. The "pastel" (a local delicacy) is also very good.

I always decide to eat at Hocca Bar at Mercado Municipal de São Paulo. Food Quality is perfect and this last time we had a help from a waiter very very attentious. I forgot his name, I am so sorry, but you were very nice.

We had a great lunch here. It was fairly quick. The sandwiches were VERY good. The picana steak was a little too well done. The cod fish was somewhat dry. I really enjoyed the fruit drinks too. Good sized portions.

A local friend took us here and the food was great, fast and tasty. A great hot sandwich and a cod dish. We all loved it. The food markets under this are worth looking around. We enjoyed the food so much we ordered take aways for dinner!

Yep, no doubt best place to get these bad boys, yes they are sickening and chock full of mortadella and cheese (depending on which one you order) but they are delicious! Besides you'll walk around the market and walk it off anyway. Yes there may be a few people and yes you may have to wait but generally the waiters... More

Besides the Mercado Municipal location, they also have one unit at a shopping mall, where I went. Their food is really good and incredible amount in each dish. So, be careful when ordering ur food. Downside: it is always packed because of good food.

I had just arrived from the US so was looking for something quick as we visited the Mercardo Municipal. Had a great sandwich of cheese fried in a pastry which was outstanding and was exactly what I was looking for in the morning after a long flight. Staff is friendly and service is good but it can get quite busy.

I love the Mercado Municipal, and there are a lot of good places to eat there. Hocca maybe is the most traditional one, since it serves one of the famous mortadela sandwiches (Mortadela is, let's say, a version of Pastrami from Brazil) and also very good Pastéis (fried thin dough stuffed with delicious Codfish). It's an experience. Try going there... More

Have been at Hocca a couple of times now and tried two different types of Mortadella sandwiches and one hammock sandwich. All were great and you won't need to eat anymore for a long time after your visit at Hocca. The sandwiches are huge. Just make sure you don't go during the busiest hours as the waiting time can be...

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
To truly know São Paulo, you have to start at the old centre, full of history and landmarks with stories to tell. Get a taste of local food at the Municipal Market, and if you are brave enough, head to the crowded shopping street “25 de março” for cheap deals on a wide assortment of items. Beautiful buildings in this area include the Post Office Building, Luz Station, Pagé Gallery, Pateo do Colegio and the iconic “Viaduto do Chá”. If you find yourself amazed by the local language, the Museum of Portuguese Language is the place to go. Cultural centres, like Banco do Brasil’s, also offer a variety of entertainment options. Finally, if you fancy watching a Gregorian mass with organ music, stop by São Bento Monastery on a Sunday morning.
