Brazilian food in a charming and colorful environment
One of the most charming restaurants in the city is at Santo Antônio Além do Carmo. Open since 2015, Poró delights the public immediately. The Brazilian food restaurant has an atmosphere that mixes colorful umbrellas and flowers in an explosion of colors that harmonizes with the flavors of the menu.
On the menu, dumplings and pastels are some options for starters, followed by several options of meat, chicken and seafood for all tastes. The desserts mix tropical flavors and the wine list always brings a surprise.
Our suggestion for starters is the portion of rice balls with pepper relish, or the beef tongue in a criolla sauce and a bed of rosti potatoes stuffed with cheese. For the main dish, the drunk ribs from Poró – which includes caipirinha in the recipe – are served with zucchini salad and seasoned with mustard vinaigrette. It comes with parmesan slices, mashed potatoes and sweet potato chips.
Another great option is Plongée, fish accompanied by yam vatapá, chives, grape tomato confit, as well as a salad of cucumber, parsley, radish and coriander. To finish off, order the chocolate brownie with coconut ice cream and caramelized popcorn, bathed in a tasty caramel sauce.
The balcony on the second floor is perfect for a special round of drinks. The upstairs floor has a very special space, affectionately named Café Poró. It is the ideal place to relax with friends or family, and enjoy coffees and accompaniments. It is also excellent for celebrating a special event. The space is wide, with three environments divided into two rooms and a balcony.
