A wonderful spot to eat at when visiting Mercado Central. Often a long. Line but well worth the wait. They are a winner of Comida di Buteco many years and have several of those winning dishes on their menu.

Delicious local food, had the Mineirinho Valente a couple of appetizers (bolinho bacalao and tapioca squares) and a Original beer and was pleased with everything. If you are looking to taste the local cuisine I definetly recommend this place.

Expect a long wait for this place. But it is worth it. All the original flavors of the Mineira food are perfectly executed in this local boteco. Cold beer is the perfect complement to try the pork, lamb or beef combinations.

Situated in the Mercado Centre (markets) the food is cheap and well worth the wait - there is often a queue. Little english is spoken but you can point at the pictures. We ordered a range of foods and it was all fantastic.

Very busy place located in the public market of Belo Horizonte. It took 40 min wait to be seated in a Saturday afternoon but the typical food served was delicious. The service was ok and we had a good Mineira experience. I recommend for tourists but nor sure if I would go there often if was a native.

Located in the central market of Belo Horizonte, this restaurant offers outstanding typical food. Although the menu does not have a big range of options, you will find something that will blow your mind. I always go for 'mineirinho valente'. A bit pricey due to the recent popularity. Be aware of long queue, if you want to have lunch, you'd... More

I love being in such popular restaurants, and Casa Cheia is a good one, with good prices, quick service. Ok, it's a little noise around, but it's a market place... Try the "mexido" and the "porconóbis", they had been one of the best food in BH some years ago.
