The Art of Cart: Authentic Brazilian Street Food Dinner with the Embassy of Brazil
Date: Friday 14th, Jan.
Cost: 398 RMB, 368RMB for members including one drink
A country’s most delicious food is not always found in its finest restaurants. Tasting local street food is definitely one of the most important experiences when you are traveling. That is perhaps what street food is all about: filling your stomach with contentment in a convenient and affordable way, while opening the door that leads to the country’s cuisine, history and culture.
This holiday season, our courtyard has joined hands with the Embassy of Brazil and Brazilian Chef Paula Garcia to present you a special street food dinner along with the cultural traditions of these dishes which will be shared in the documentary, “The Taste of Brazilian Streets”, made by The Embassy of Brazil in China and the famous Brazilian director, Tiago Arakilia.
