Located in the bohemian district of Rio Vermelho, Boteco do França is a mix of bar and restaurant. The menu proposes a variety of options based on Brazilian cuisine. It is brand new, it has all been renovated and now the beautiful mosaics of the artist Bel Borba take the walls of the most famous alley in the city!
The public can spread out on the little tables arranged in the alley, in the hall or in the air-conditioned area. The second floor is all remodeled too. Start with an ultra-cold beer or with drinks like “sacanagem”, a mix of seriguela, cajá, umbu, strawberry, pineapple and tangerine with vodka. Among the appetizers, the salted meat with onions, shrimp escondidinho (shrimp hidden under puree), the fried kibbe served with pepper and lemon sauce and the steak appetizer with mustard sauce and toasted bread are a success. For main dish, ask for the lamb stew with Moroccan couscous or go to one of the highlights: Badejo Luiz Paulo, which has a tamarind sauce, butter and orange juice and manioc puree; and of course the famous octopus rice.
Important: the dishes are plentiful. Think of the quantities of your order so you do not waste food.
