    You have to try Pinguim's beer. The beer goes through 18 meters of icy-cold metalic tube before it gets to the glass. It's really great!

    This restaurant has quite a varied menu available. We all ordered a crepe/wrap which came in savoury or sweet flavours. My one was "Cordeiro" which is lamb and it was served in strips inside the rolled crepe with tomato and covered in melted cheese.

    Favorite Dish: The mousse of course! No meal here would be complete without trying one of the fabulous mousse flavours they have in their display cabinet. I ate the chocolate mousse with chocolate chips.

    Pinguim (or Penguin in English) is the name of the locale where you can try the famous (in Brazil) Antarctica beer. I was told by my hosts that no trip to Ribeirao Preto is complete without a visit to Pinguim to sample their famous beer. Apparently there is something in the water in the area around Ribeirao that makes it famous for the beer.

    Favorite Dish: I had my very agreeable Antarctica Pinguim Chopp (pint)

    This restaurant was superb. It is located inside the mall however this place is far from a food court eatery. The restaurant has waiters and tablecloths and cloth napkins. Ther service was excellent.

    Favorite Dish: The food was really good. I had a Bife de Chorizo steak and partook of the amazing salad bar they had in the middle of the restaurant. The salad bar buffet was truly excellent.

Ribeirão Prêto Transportation

    I purchased a round trip ticket to Ribeirao Preto from Sao Paulo as an add-on to my International ticket flying TAM from Santiago to Sao Paulo and it only cost me US$60 extra.
    The airplane we flew there in was an Airbus that departed from Congonhas Airport. The return flight was a TAM flight but operated by a company called Passaredo operating a Brazilian plane by Embraer. This flight went to Guarulhos Airport.

Ribeirão Prêto Shopping

    This is a Shopping Mall that is centrally located and has just about anything that you might want to buy during your trip to Ribeirao.

    What to buy: I bought some lovely woman's clothing that was all Brazilian designed and made. I did have a few problems with size as I am a 46 in local sizing but mostly they only went up to 44. In shoes I also had difficulty being a size 41 and most of the stores only had up to 39.

    There were Brazilian made children's toys along with the usual international brands.

    The leather goods were also worth looking at (bags, belts, shoes).

    What to pay: Depends on the item but I found that Brazilian prices were comparable to Chile and not particularly cheap.
