Here’s the low-down on the latest action-
The Beef: Definitely come for the caipirinhas. These are probably some of the best in town, not the mention the variety – classic, pineapple, ginger & cloves, chili pepper, coffee…and more. Also the music – latin beats that will instantly make you feel sexy and uplift your spirits.
We also ordered some bites to go with our drinks, as you can see from the photos, not the most photogenic plates.
The good: Cheese bread (pao de queijo) – warm and chewy, almost the consistency of a mochi. Fried tapioca cubes – very interesting texture, crunchy on the outside and a gummier consistency than the cheese bread. Paired well with a red spicy sauce.
The not-so-recommended: Chicken empanada – too dry, the filling was almost like dried chicken floss. Also could have used a sauce to spice it up. Spinach and cheese croquettes – the crust was a bit too dry, even paired with the “Thousand Island” sauce, the flavor just felt unusual.
I’ve heard great things about the beef dishes here, as that is what the Latin Americans are known for. Will have to come back for a full-on steak.
The Gang: Locals and laowai alike enjoying the chill vibes. Until the floor is cleared for some sexy Latin music later in the evening (9pm on a Fri night).
The Damage: 250rmb/person for drinks and a sampling of nibbles. ~60rmb for cocktails and caipirinhas.
The Down n’ Dirty: Shared for all establishments in the Found158 complex. Can be clean or gross, depends on your luck – and the time of the night.
