Casa de Francisca
São Paulo, Brazil
The Casa de Francisca is known for always bringing the very best of Brazil to their restaurant, from decoration to food. When it comes to desserts, their cheesecake, made with pumpkin candy and traditional North Brazilian requeijão instead of cream cheese, is the star of the menu.
The delicious treat, named ‘Disseram que eu voltei Americanizado’ (meaning "I Came Back American"), is both the title of a song by the Portuguese-Brazilian singer, Carmen Miranda, and an irony as big as a Brazilian restaurant selling cheesecake. To this day, the cheesecake is one of their best-sellers. #saopaulo #brazil #cheap-eats #food #restaurants #dinner
