Description: 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.

“A great place for a special occasion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

I booked Sabor Brazil some time ago for our wedding anniversary meal. We had a lovely experience. When I booked any dietary requirements were noted and did not have to be repeated. We received a warm welcome and were shown to our table.

I really enjoyed the food and the service was excellent.

This is an intimate venue where you can easily spend the whole evening without feeling the time passing. Well worth a visit.

“Fantastic service and great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

We had heard great things about Sabor Brazil and having booked months in advance we had high expectations. We weren't disappointed. The food was excellent, from wonderfully light cheesy breads with dips to sharp Brazillian salsa, sushi, beautifully tender beef and chocolate sauce laced with brandy. The service was delightful; genuine, humorous, enthusiastic and friendly. The small dining room, tasting menu with various flavour fusions make it a real experience rather then simply "eating out". Highly recommended.

“Wonderful”

Tom, Marco, Lou and Daniel are a truly remarkable team. The food and service they provide is exemplary. The recent revisions to the tasting menu make the experience better than ever. If you want to experience the very best that Dublin has to offer, you must try Sabor Brazil.
