Fascinating glimpse into what northeasterners really like doing...eating!

This place has been around for years. There are two of them in Brasilia. The one in CLS 107 (which I know well) is a hive of gluttonous activity, especially at weekends. People shouting orders, waiters bustling around with trays heaving with carne de sol, chopinhos etc. You really have to like... read more

Been to this restaurant a couple of times since I first came to Brasília some 15 years ago. Main interest for me was and still is the food from Northeastern Brazil, although they nowadays serve other “international” dishes (beef, chicken and even pasta). As Brasília has no “local” type of food, why not trying this unsophisticated but still delicious mix... More

The food is a little expensive, last time I was there it was about R$65 but everything is delicious, specially the paçoca and the carne de sol with butter.

Considering Brasília was built by NE people, it's hard to believe this is the best Carne de Sol in town. It's a plain restaurant with fair plates to share. Carne de Sol plate costs 62 reais and serves up to 5 adults. Maybe you will need a portion of extra rice or beans... I tasted both cut and one piece... More

This is a good place to go with family or friends. The food is delicious (comida nordestina), and the price is also good.

good food from Brazilian Northeast. If you go there, stay on the basic: the traditional carne de sol com macaxeira: it is enough for 2 people.

Xique-xique was once one of the good places to taste nordestina food in Brasilia. Unfortunately, the most important issue in a place like this - meat ("carne de sol", or sun dried beef) - lost its way. Hard, overcooked and oversalted is how the beef comes nowadays. The side dishes, especially the "aipim cozido", remain ok, but, as the name... More
