Description: Marcos Bassi, son of Italian, grew up in the Bras neighborhood, downtown Sao Paulo. Her history with meat started early, at eight years old, when he sold kids of beef in the neighborhood where he lived. After a few years, Marcos and his mother Mrs.Mafalda, acquired a space in the Municipal Market of Sao Paulo. Worked hard there, until they acquire the butcher of Mr Prachedes in Humaita Street, already in the Bixiga neighborhood and transform the House of Meats Bassi, where the rich immigrants met the city, as a structure, quality and customer care services. Gradually managed to implement a grill inside the house so they could test Meats for their creations right there. It was when they started to sell sandwiches and cuts already baked in the Store. The history of prime meats was born there, along with the story of Marcos Bassi, just to differentiate the quality and price of products Marcos Bassi. In 1978 born the "Central Refrigerated Meat Noble Bassi" on May 13th Street, now with a special place to serve some people with their tastings races and special cuts. The tastings did so successfully, that a year later came the grill at the same location where work until today the facilities and services of the Temple of Meat. Throughout life, Marcos Bassi learned in practice, all about cuts and other technical details such as blood flow, smoothness and texture. As a craftsman, his hands left consecrated as "Bombom", made from the pith of the rump, and the steak from the butcher cuts. Also pioneered the vacuum process and maturation of meat in Brazil. The Temple of Meat then perpetuates as a result of 50 years of a life invested and dedicated to specialty Bassi: meat. And with the technique learned with Marcos Bassi, born Marcos Bassi culture, ensuring that the tradition continues at the Temple of Meat. Come and visit us.

Yes truly a temple to meat. Some very interesting cuts which you won't find elsewhere and meat was cooked to perfection. I still find the quality of the meat in Brazil a bit below that of Uruguay and Argentina but this is minor criticism. Excellent and friendly service. A very good choice for meat in São Paulo at a very... More

This is an old "churrascaria" in Sao Paulo. The place is simple without any outstanding decoration. The focus is on the content of the plates. Don't go there to eat fish! this one of the best place in Sao Paulo to eat meat. We got some black pudding as starters and then Picanha. Just fantastic!

We had a great dinner at this Temple of Meat restaurant in Sao Paulo. The meat selection was broad and delicious; we ran out of room and could not order more. The décor was good and the service was good also. Reservations are recommended, although it was not that busy when we showed up.

The meat was very delicious, also I had local drink - Carphirinia, it was also very tasteful. The service was very fast, also the waiters were very professional and kind. The concept of the restaurant was very exclusive and perfect for a steak house. However, we paid almost $ USD 120 for each person only for steak and a glass... More

Went there twice in Feb 2014. Had Picanha and the Prime Rib Contra Filet. Picanha was good but not brilliant. The Prime Rib was really outstanding. Good wines and fast and attentive staff. Pretty good Mojitos at the bar.

This is simply the best barbecue you'll ever taste. Fraldinha and bombom are unbelievably tasty and juicy, sides are perfect, and they serve a delicious linguica apertitivo as you wait for you friends to arrive. even though is a bit expensive, you definitely don't want to miss this.
