Pé no Parque Weekend ritual

Perched on the corner right beside Ibirapuera Park, this café is all about freshness and wellbeing. The menu is rife with endless salad varieties (Mango Chicken being the big hit), healthy organic meals, sandwiches and all kinds of exotic Brazilian fruits and juices such as Cajà, Umbu, Cupuaçu, Seriguela and Jabuticaba .

On weekends, they dish up a mouth-watering breakfast buffet of fruits, cereals, wholegrain breads, juices and yogurt among other things, refueling the young, sporty crowd who frequent this place after their morning jog. The space is open air (i.e. sans walls), allowing for summer breezes to float past as you sample some “açaì na tigela” (a Brazilian delicacy made from frozen and mashed açaí palm fruit) or sip your natural coconut water. The menu alters slightly in winter, offering soups and hot beverages.

Tantra Asian exoticism

Hindu philosophy suggests that when our smell, sight, hearing, touch and taste are harmonized they take us to the most complete of feelings. Tantra the restaurant adheres to this ethos with due diligence. It’s a whole package: food, drinks, decor, ambience. At once rustic and sophisticated, relaxed and sexy, Tantra’s setting immediately draws diners towards an exciting, exotic Asian culinary experience that’s in store for them.

The main attraction is the Mongolian Grill, a buffet offering three types of freshly grilled meat (beef, fish or chicken), diverse vegetables and a smorgasboard of colorful condiments from which you are encouraged to invent the sauce of your dreams. The richly curried and coconut milk-drenched à la carte dishes are also delicious, as are the rather eccentric cocktails. Fancy an aphrodisiac mix? Or perhaps some shots in burning glasses?

And Tantra accompanies all this with the offer of a Hookah pipe and, a few nights a week, cabaret-style performances by fire-eaters and trapeze artists. Truly, a feast for all the senses.
