As we continue our pilgimage of steak houses and a 'Rib-eye a day' challenge, we found ourselves at this self-styled temple of meat. The place was almost empty when we arrive at 7pm on a Monday, so gettinng a table was not a problem. Once seated we immediately admired the building design with its open beam roof, art on the...

Went there last night with my friend's family to celebrate her b-day: she loves that place. Never been there because I heard it was expensive (and I don't care too much for meat...). Before going there I made some research: they sell these coupons for some main dishes, and for the same price of the main dish (268 reais -... More

Incredible meat. It's not cheap but if you love meet you should not miss it especially if you are at least in 3 or 4 people since many dishes come only for 3 or 4. If you 2 people the choice will be less ample. There are good wines as well . Service is rapid and efficient. The surroundings are... More

I'm Brazilian so I'm used to great steaks and service and the Templo da Carne just confirms what a really great restaurant experience means: delicious, matching flavours, dishes on time, respectable and unique. I had a lamb palette, a rack of lamb, the couvert with incredible breads and sauces, roasted hearts of palm and caipirinhas. Everything was out of this... More

Hosted a private event for 100 people. The food, wine and service were beyond all expectations! I would highly recommend trying a little something from every portion of the menu. Nothing here disappointed. The staff was so amazing that they were able to make accommodations for our vegetarian guest in a temple of beef!

The quality of the food served is unquestionable. Everything is just great. The only negative aspect is that the price is higher than the average.

The experience starts with the story of the place you can see since you enter the place. The steaks are great, but the "Palmito" is amazing, it´s huge and serves for 2,3 persons. The bring it to the table and prepare it in front of you. I ordered Bom Bom cut and it was as expected. Great!

Enjoyed a good steak dinner. Meat was delicious, juicy,and with good-sized portions. Very enjoyable. Arrived around 9pm on a weekend but surprisingly not very crowded - maybe half full. But it took the waiters forever to come to us. Finally we had to call one over and let him know we wanted to order. But he couldn't take our order,... More

Marcos Bassi, son of Italian, grew up in the neighborhood of Bras, downtown Sao Paulo. His history with the meat started early, at age eight, when selling beef kids in the neighborhood where he lived. After a few years, Mark and his mother Mafalda, acquired a space in the Municipal Market of Sao Paulo. Worked hard there, to acquire the butcher Mr Prachedes in Humaita Street, already in the neighborhood of Bixiga and transform the Meat House Bassi, where met the rich immigrant city, as a structure, quality and customer care services. Gradually managed to implement a barbecue in the Meat House so they could test for over there even their creations. It was when they started selling sandwiches and Store cuts already baked. The history of prime meat 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 "Meat Slaughtering Central Noble Bassi" on May 13th Street, now with a special place to serve some people with their tastings of special breeds and cuts. The desgutacoes did so successfully, that a year later came the steak house in the same place where today the work of Meat Temple facilities. Throughout life, Marcos Bassi learned in practice all about cuts and other technical details such as blood supply, softness and texture. As a craftsman, his hands left cuts enshrined as Candy, made from the rump kernels, and the steak butcher. Also pioneered the vacuum process and meat maturation in Brazil The Temple of meat is 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 tradition continues at the Temple of Meat. Come visit us.

Neighborhood Profile
Bela Vista
Known for its Italian cantinas, Bela Vista is the place to go for great pasta. Also called “Bixiga”, the area is an important cultural part of the city, with the bohemian and the religious costumes of its inhabitants on full display. In August, the large Nossa Senhora Achiropita party fills the streets with a variety of Italian food and music. You can experience the liveliness of the neighborhood walking through the antiquities fair at Dom Orione Square or visiting the “Brazilian Caminito”, a version of the Argentinian street complete with colorful buildings. Bela Vista is also home to the traditional samba school “Vai-Vai”. Buy a ticket to a rehearsal and get a taste of what Carnival is like.
