Casa do Barreado

Top choice brazilian in Paranaguá

In her own home a few blocks behind the historic district, Norma cooks up real-deal barreado (meat stew) true to its original recipe (simmered for 24 hours in an earthen clay pot), a less commercialized version than you'll find in Morretes. This weekend-only affair has earned a culinary star 15 years running. A true local experience.

Do not miss chico balanceado, a concoction of bananas, meringue and manjar branco (coconut pudding).
