We are a market kitchen, we serve the best food we can at the best price we can get. We want our food to be, in addition to being good, inclusive, and democratic, just like the market in which we are located. Inspired by the richness of our city's popular culture, Cozinha Tupis was born to bring together in one place what we love most in the traditional cuisine of Belo Horizonte, with the techniques and ideas we learn in cuisine made around the world. Our work, however, goes beyond food. In 2018, when we opened our doors, we chose to be in the heart of downtown, in an almost abandoned market, Mercado Novo. Since then, we have managed, through our cuisine, to attract attention to this place and transform it into one of the most relevant cultural centers in the country. Everything we do is intended to generate value for the communities around us, and food is no different. With each recipe, we seek to honor and accentuate the sensations provided by the rich food of our city and, like good miners, we do it in the simplest and most uncomplicated way we can. Here, there will be no shortage of second-rate meats, vegetables that would be wasted, creativity, and courage to transform cheap food into delicacies with a lot, a lot of flavors!
