There’s definitely no shortage of foodie destinations in São Paulo, but if you are looking for a restaurant with a creative menu and an atmosphere to match, you must try Tuju.
Tucked into the vibrant Vila Madalena neighbourhood, Tuju is the city’s most eclectic fine dining establishment and was voted one of Latin America’s 50 best restaurants in 2018. Chef Ivan Ralston and his team are known for producing original dishes from their expansive research in the restaurant’s open kitchen. The seasonal four-course menu is vegetarian-friendly and tinged with Brazilian culinary influences whilst showcasing the chef’s own technical innovations and fusion twists. Local ingredients figure prominently and many are cultivated in the urban vegetable garden on the premises. The wine pairing option is both an educational experience and a treat, as eighty per cent of the wine list consists of natural, organic and biodynamic labels. At Tuju, the backdrop of contemporary architecture and design provides a serene setting to explore Chef Ralston’s refined approach to Brazilian cooking.
