Kaa, a stunning São Paulo restaurant, has new menu by chef Pascal Valero

Opened in December of 2008, Kaa is one of São Paulo's most beautiful restaurants. Huge, its trademark is the "live wall" covered with greenery. The menu has just been redone by one of the city's top chefs, Pascal Valero. Favourites include the ravioli of foie gras with mushrooms and truffle oil (R$ 54, pictured below) and the shrimp, zuchini flower and vegetable tempura (R$ 64).

Valero is not only a chef but also a pâtissier. He suggests for dessert a caramel tiramisù with coffee granita and hazelnut nougatine (R$ 15).

Here are other dishes featured on the menu:

Kaa was designed by renowned architect Arthur Casas, and was inspired by the open-air lounges he saw in Ibiza, Miami and the Algarve.

Owners are Paulo Kress (who also has a great burguer place called General Prime Burger), the very in-vogue chef Paulo Barroso de Barros (Due Cuochi) and restaurateur Daniel Sahagoff (Cantaloup).

  1. Oi, seu post é muito bom, porque seu post está dando informações agradável. Então estou muito contente, porque você deu esta informação. Assim, muito grato.

  2. Thought it should be known that owner Daniel Sahagoff managed to cheat and steal from his friends in the process of building

    In short, if you patronise his restaurant Kaa, you are endorsing unethical business practices, and unethical people.

  3. This arrangement costs the eateries additional time and exertion and isn't completely secure as they might be few cafes who don't turn up in spite of getting their affirmation of the eatery reservation. elegance bakery wayne pa
