    Dona Lucinha: Typical Food

    by rbassoi Written Oct 22, 2003

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The cuisine is a family tradition nurtured with love and its secrets were passed from generation to generation.

    It works with typical “Mineira” food served in an ambience that reminds of the architecture of the two-story houses and farms of colonial times. The cuisine is therefore divided in two categories also: the cuisine of the farms and the cuisine of the muleteers. They try to keep their characteristics as well as their authentic flavors.

    Favorite Dish: All the foods, try the beans and don´t ( DON´T ) forget the desserts....

    Beans Cream

    Baby Beef: Churrascaria in Belo

    by klarson Written Sep 18, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Though this restaurant has an English name, it is very much a Brazilian Churrascaria with a nice selection of buffet and meat carved on your plate by a number of roving waiters. Very delicious and filling!

    Favorite Dish: The beef was very good!

    Dona Luzinha has great atmosphere that is reminiscent of the region's colonial culture, and provides typical local food from Minas Gerais. Very traditional home-cooked style of food with a lot of feijao (beans), meats tendered with Cachaza and different stews.

    ChurasCaria is a typical meal in Brasil, there are so many kind of CC. From the basic one (along the road mostly for truck drivers) or in the city (like the one I tried) where the quality is higher.
    The full meal is about 30/35 Real (around 10 € = 13 $) You can have all vegetable you want plus many kind of meat.
    - Pig
    - Chicken
    - And Many many kind of Really good Beaf!

    There is the rule: you start to eat, then every 2/3 mins a waiter comes to the table an propose a different kind of meat ... until you can't eat anymore!
    When you're over, you just put a little marker on the table 'Obrigado' (thank you) to say you're full!
    That's so Great and Good! You have to try it!

    Favorite Dish: Beaf!

    Migo do Rei: Delightful Persian Restaurant!

    by intl_dan Updated Aug 10, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A little gem of a restaurant in BH's zona sul, just off Savassi. Its run by Nasrin and her partner Claudio. Nasrin is a passionate cook and can also explain alot about Iranian cooking and culture in English. You really feel like you're stepping into their home, as the restaurant definitely has their personal touch and warmth, not to mention the quality of excellent home cooking. Chat to Claudio if you are interested in art and painting, he is a painter. The food is excellent, enjoy!

    Favorite Dish: This restaurant has very few dishes on its menu but they are good! Try the meat dishes, rather than the chicken, and dont forget the refreshing sweet Iranian drink with cucumber, trust me, its wonderful!

    Open wednesday to saturday 13-17hr and 19:30-23hrs.

    How to get there!

    Dona Lucinha: Mineiran Cuisine at its best

    by schurlif Updated Apr 8, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The hotel concierge recommended this restaurant for being one of the best for mineiran cuisine ( that means typical food of colonial Minas Gerais ) which is renowned in all of Brazil. An ample self service buffet selection of some 30 or more mineiran dishes awaits you.....The meats are tendered with cachaça and lemon... Little salt is used. No cream, no pasta, nothing smoked or canned..... indigenous, afro descendant and portuguese touches. Milk, candy, eggs and fruits in the form of preserves for desserts and homemade liqueurs, that's "cozinha mineira"...

    Favorite Dish: There were some 30 or more dishes prepared in metal pots, impossible to tell which was the best..... I tasted a bit of almost all of them .... but beware, mineiran cuisine is somewhat heavy... there's a kind of refried bean paste "tutu mineiro" which I liked a lot which is weird because I don't like beans..... blood sausage ( cooked, not fried ), which I love..... ox tail with green vegetable ( of which unfortunately I don't know any translation into english ), pork chops, chicken in a variety of forms in the most diversified sauces and more..... it's like an assault on your taste buds....

    just a small part of the vast buffet..... self service buffet, up to 40 different hot dishes dessert..... doce de leite, doce de abobora..... different brands of cacha��a complimentary home made cacha��a for the digestion
