Instead of a burger, an octopus. Instead of sausages, mussels. Opened last year, two São Paulo snack bars draw attention for the breeding of fish and seafood to the protagonists of their sandwiches and snacks menus.
Opened in June, Notorious Fish is dark cuisine – meaning it only exists on delivery – that seeks to combine respect for fish with snacks with more user-friendly value.
Younger sister of star Barú Marisqueria, Barú Sandú follows a similar line. It only works with delivery, with a focus on sandwiches and similar values.
The addresses complete a list of ten recipe suggestions to taste by hand and featuring fish.
Open at the end of October, the cafeteria follows the line of the oldest Barú Marisqueria, with a kitchen by Dagoberto Torres and dedicated to fish. The difference is that there the ingredients serve as a filling for the sandwiches, as is the case with La Milanga (R $ 33), a fish milanesa with kimchi and coleslaw with cilantro. In turn, La Niña (R $ 27) also brings an element of the earth: it combines marinated mussels and cured ham with roasted garlic cream and olives.
