São Paulo

Although I am happy we stopped in São Paulo for a couple days in order to explore the city while we were already in Brazil, I would personally not come back due to the lack of stuff to do.  There were a couple really cool and fun things along with food that I was able to explore, however you could explore the food and open markets elsewhere in Brazil.  Overall, São Paulo was too much of a city-city in which I explored the time I had and was able to accomplish everything, but will probably not be heading back.  Would much rather next time dedicate all of the days to Rio de Janeiro.

      • Ranked the 7th best restaurant in the world

      • It is a 12 course tasting menu where each course offers a different part of the pig; from pork belly to pork cheek soup broth

      • Extremely delicious bites and actually left feeling very full and the whole meal was only $40

      • Website says next reservation is months and months later but just walk in around 7/7:30 and you’ll be good
