the miner Bruna Martins he started cooking as a joke, but it didn’t take long for his creations, previously prepared on the wood stove on the family farm, to become serious.

With affective inspiration, chef Bruna’s dishes are made from the imagination of the woman who is a housewife and, in detail: all were taken from the recipe notebooks of her mother and grandmothers.

Participant in the third season of the culinary reality show “Mestre do Sabor” (TV Globo), Bruna runs the kitchen and the business of Birosca S2, creative gastronomy restaurant based on souvenirs that has been operating for eight years in Belo Horizonte, in the neighborhood of Santa Tereza.

Today, in addition to the restaurant, the 31-year-old professional also owns the Wine Spinning, e-commerce and bar no New Market, focused on valuing wines from small producers, organic and national labels.

Despite maintaining business in Belo Horizonte, Bruna experiences the flavors of other capitals, such as Rio de Janeiro e São Paulo, and then shares his favorite experiences he always has in these three important Brazilian cities:

Pearl Winery (Rio de Janeiro)

Adega Pérola is a seafood restaurant and tapas bar in the Copacabana district. I loved this place! The lounge has long wooden tables and benches and the large glass counter shows us a delicious variety of snacks.

Among the orders, I suggest the octopus vinaigrette and the codfish cake. Both are delicious and very well made. Cold draft beer and craft beers are ideal orders and great company for snacks.

Bagaceira Bar (São Paulo)

Of the same owners of Koya88, an oriental bar in the Santa Cecília neighbourhood, Bagaceira has several signature drinks and traditional cocktails. There are from shakes with flavors of the day to classics such as Macunaíma and Rabo de Galo.

Besides the drinks, the snacks deserve all the praise. They serve a pork cake with black pudding that is delicious and photogenic – you can see several posts about the cake on the bar’s social media. Cheek pastry, cracklings and rice balls with tulha cheese are also some of the options.

New Market (Belo Horizonte)

Mercado Novo is an interesting space in Belo Horizonte, a market with restaurants, brewery, cachaça, fair and various service stores. It has a lively gastronomic and social life along with rustic decor.

Inside the market, my recommendation is to snack at the Tupi kitchen. The restaurant presents reinterpretations of Minas Gerais delicacies very well made for lunch and there is always the dish of the day. Every experience is done at a counter, typical of the bohemian life of Belo Horizonte.
