    A Mineira: Typical brazilian food from Minas region

    by hmoitta Updated Feb 28, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant reecreates the countryside ambiance , with food from Minas Gerais region. Many traditional pork dishes but there are other kinds of food too. Complimentary cachaca ( brasilian liqueur) and homemade style desserts. It's buffet style with fixed price is good for people who want to eat much and /or experience traditional brazilian dishes without spending too much.

    daily for lunch and dinner
    last visit saturday lunch february 2004

    Favorite Dish: I loved the bean soup ( caldinho de feijao ) , dried meat with mashed pumpkin ( carne seca with quibebe ), fried bananas and fruit sweets with cheese.

    On leaving the airport at my return from Buenos Aires, Alexandre took us to Restaurante à Mineira in the suburb of Caxias. It is a self-service restaurant with a salad and everything you could imagine including boiled quail eggs. On the second trip, I had a feijoada (rice with a lot of beans seasoned with pork and garnished by turnip greens and a slice of orange), chicken liver, and fish. I had two tins of Guaraná (of the Antarctica variety) to wash it all down. The hot food bar, instead of being electric, was heated by a wood burning open fire. It came up a cloud in the middle of lunch and a restaurant employee took an umbrella from one of the outdoor tables and walked folks to their cars. It was a nice gesture, but with thunder and lightning, I didn't want to be close to a metal pole. Besides that, Alexandre parked the silver VW under a tree.
