Brazilian food with Amazonian flair
Located in the traditional neighborhood of Santa Theresa, Espirito Santa offers Brazilian cuisine with exotic flavors from the Amazon. Chef Natacha Fink, who hails from Manaus, conjures up inventive Brazilian dishes inspired by her Amazonian roots, and strikes a good balance between laidback style and attention to detail. From the addition of creamy coconut, plantain or flecks of Brazil nut to the rice, to tiny, sweet biquinho chilli peppers perched atop the fried-bean balls, there is a harmony of Fink’s influences in both presentation and flavour. Order as widely and as adventurously as possible and the reward is a rather unique culinary journey. The best seats in the house are found on the small balcony looking out over the hillside.
