in Ouro Preto

Eclectically decorated with old photos, religious art, Brazilian flags and antiques, this local institution serves one of Minas' tastiest (if priciest) buffets. The menu showcases traditional local favorites such as lombo (roasted pork loin) and feijão tropeiro (beans with bacon, sausage, greens and manioc flour), followed by Minas cheese and goiabada (guava paste) for dessert. Post-meal shots of cachaça, coffee and jabuticaba liqueur are included in the price.
