Brazil is the largest and most populous country in South America. Almost as if to complement its exciting geographical contrasts, from wetlands to tropical forest to beaches, it also boasts an incredible multi-ethnic mix, which is mirrored in its cuisine.The indigenous Tupi Indians had already mastered the art of preserving meats through smoking and drying by the time the Portuguese colonised Brazil in 1533. They had developed the use and processing of Corn (in particular Corn Porridge) as well as the use of many root vegetables such as sweet potato and manioc (also known as yucca or cassava ).Not only did the Portuguese bring with them their own culinary customs (heavily influenced by 300 years of Moorish occupation) but they also imported slaves from West Africa with their cooking traditions. The use of coconut milk, peppers and dende (palm oil) are amongst the many ideas introduced by the slaves, all of which are prevalent in Brazilian cooking.Many more immigrants followed later, including Western Europeans, peoples from the Middle East and Asia, but unlike the Portuguese and African traditions, their culinary contributions were absorbed rather than evolved.As with many other large countries, Brazilian cuisine has its regional differences, although staple ingredients throughout Brazil today include beans, rice and manioc meal. To the North (includes Amazonas, Rondônia and Pará), the diet is mainly fish, root vegetables and fruit as opposed to the Southeast where the use of corn, pork and beans is traditional. Our restaurant is based in a small baroque city of Ouro Preto (from Portuguese, Black Gold) is a city in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil, a former colonial mining town located in the Serra do Espinhaço mountains and designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO because of its outstanding Baroque architecture. A different and enjoyable option for a FINE DINING Brazilian Restaurant. A cozy atmosphere for pleasant moments with friends and partners. Excellent food and proud to show our diverse culinary dishes to europeans.

As good as the reviews suggest

Went to Sabor Brazil on Wednesday evening, felt like we were at a friends home for a quality dinner. It's a credit to all involved they are so humble whilst creating such a fantastic dining experience. Do yourself a favour and go !!!

We were made to feel as if were old friends by Tom who owns the restaurant - every restaurant should have someone like Tom !. Food was wonderful array of different tastes and steak for main course was cooked exactly the way we wanted it . Cheese... More

This is a very unique dining experience, with one waiter and chef. Excellent food and service, the food and drink was lovely but the overall experience, attention to detail and funky interior design is the best part.

Our fourth visit to Sabor in as many years and all four of us were left lost for superlatives by the end of another magnificent meal courtesy of Tom, his partner and their staff. There is a reason why Sabor is rated top in Dublin and why you wait to get a reservation there. it is simply the best. The... More
