then come here and eat in a lifely, loud and hectic place the typical feijoada. Although it's far away from healthy food, I loved it.

Not an expert on Feijoada, but a Saturday afternoon at Bolinha's offers everything you need - ample Feijoada with all of the accoutrements, great icy cold caipirinhas, futbol on two screens (but no sound), friends and family enjoying a lazy afternoon.

I went to Bolihna looking to have Feijoada. They are known to serve the best in town and I wanted to experience just that. It was an incredible experience. Absolutely amazing. Traditional Feijoada is not for the faint of heart (or someone on a diet), albeit there is a "lean" version. It's a foodporn fest. Really. The start consist on... More

One of the traditional feijoada restaurant in Sao Paulo, it serves feijoada in different types: light (light in terms of ingredients compared to traditional), traditional (with pork's ear, feet, etc), kosher (not sure what it is). One portion serves 2 person very well if you are average :-). The menu has lot of kind of dishes, but if you visit... More

My business colleagues brought me here for a Saturday lunch. The place was packed. My first experience with feijoada and it did not disappoint. I loved the ambience. The service was great. And the feijoada-- come on an empty stomach! You won't have to eat for the rest of the day. Fabulous. I would definitely return.

Food is great. Very family friendly restaurant. Went on a Saturday afternoon for lunch. Still packed with families for their traditional feijoada lunch. I personally think the food is on the salty side but apparently it's the standard on most of the Brazilian restaurant. Most waiters only know limited English but they are all friendly and tried to understand our... More

Bolinha is a classical place where you can enjoy a nice Feijoada, all days of the week (not only Wed or Sat). They offer three versions (complete, classical and light). The first one contains all ingredients of the traditional Feijoada (pork ear, tongue, feet, tale). Besides, you can taste a caipirinha to boost the meal. They also serve a salad... More

This place has a great menu of traditional Brazilian food. However, if you don't eat pork (or meat), this is not the place for you. Try the set menu; it is a good value and covers a lot of great options.

Staying in Jardins

Neighbourhood Profile
Located just below important Paulista Avenue, Jardins is the junction of four smaller neighbourhoods: Jardim Paulista, Jardim América, Jardim Europa and Jardim Paulistano. It is an upper-class area, offering a variety of things to do, including shopping, museums and parks. The neighbourhood is well known for “Oscar Freire”– the most luxurious street in the city, packed with high-end boutiques. In Jardins you will also find a trendy museum, São Paulo Museum of Image and Sound (MIS), which people often line up for hours to visit. If green space is what you're after, take time to relax at Trianon Park, a refuge in the heart of Paulista Avenue.
