Simplicity is the key
Bitaca da Leste0
Why locals love it
Regional food, old record player, antique water purifier and informality is the recipe to make locals feel at home. And locals can’t resist delights such as gizzard with tomato and vegetable sauce, pork crackling crumbs and pot suckling pig with hominy porridge. Locals also love to meet each other and be a part of a place that looks just like them.
Why you should visit it
One of the best ways to behave like a local is going to Bitaca da Leste, a cozy restaurant which reflects the regional and simple lifestyle of Belo Horizonte. The combination of a small grocery store with a bar has given the place the title of the best “boteco” (sort of a simple bar) of the city. Could you picture this with beer or cachaça? Yum!
Great local food goes well with great brazilian songs. Ask for the best tune!
