50Best Accolades
  • No.43 Latin America's 50 Best Restaurants 2019

Casual, family run Mocotó has sated punters since 1974, though it’s taken an innovative turn since Rodrigo Oliveira, the founder’s son, has led the kitchen, with the restaurant now a regular on Latin America’s 50 Best. Diners travel to the off-central watering-hole on weekends to bag a table (no reservations) and savour northeast Brazilian classics: think oxtail cooked in black beer served with creamy corn grits, canasta cheese and watercress. Appetisers change daily, and hearty mains include tasty sarapatel (pork offal) and bone marrow stew; all dishes can be prepared to share.
