Brasilia doesn't have traditional food, since it's a new city, but many residents are from other parts, with plenty from Minas Gerais. The kitchen of this state, "cozinha mineira" is one of the most famous in the country, and rightly so. We tried it here in Minas, and had the great pleasure of retrying thanks to a friend who suggested the site Brasilia. It's in the Shopping center, about 20 minutes walk from the "Shopping" metro stop. We loved it. The kitchen is in full view, and there's a wood burning stove like those of the houses in Minas Gerais. The food is simmering in clay pots. This is the typical dish of the mining kitchen, like tropeiro feijão (stew of beans with cassava flour, different parts of pork, eggs, garlic, and onion), bifa na chapa (grilled steak), or frango com ora-pró -nóbis, or com quiabo (stewed chicken with different herbs).
