Opinion – Marcelo Katsuki: The six years of Jojo Ramen and other events that shake the city

It doesn’t even look like it but Jojo Ramen is celebrating six years! And to brighten the day, he invited chefs Kaori Muranaka, from Quito Quito Izakaya and Gustavo Rodrigues, from Lobozó, to a collab of recipes with chefs Jana Costa and Alex Kodi Matusoka, from Jojo Ramen. The result was the co-creation of two exclusive dishes: Domburi Caipira (photo), which features Lobozó’s roasted chicken and Hotate Ramen, a ramen with broth extracted from scallops. Both will be offered at a special dinner at Jojo Lab, in Vila Mariana, on May 2, with the presence of the chefs.

Yasmin Yonashiro and mixologist Rodolfo Bob also created two Awamori-based drinks to pair with these dishes. Domburi Caipira (R$ 50) will be available from May 3 to 7 at Jojo Ramen do Paraíso, Jojo Lab and Lobozó. On the 7th of May there is still a presentation of taiko, the Japanese drums, at 19:00 and 21:00. Jojo Ramen is located on Rua Dr. Rafael de Barros, 262, Paraíso. Jojo Lab is located at 193 Rua Gandavo, in Vila Mariana.

The Ema Klabin House Museum promotes the exhibition “Knife, spoon & fork: a story” starting on May 7th. The show will have 50 pieces from the 18th to 20th centuries from the Ema Klabin Collection and will present a brief account of the history of cutlery, arranged on tables that recreate the styles of the time. The exhibition is on view until July 31 and can be seen from Wednesday to Sunday, with free admission. The museum is located at Rua Portugal, 43, Jardim Europa.

A fair of organic products in the middle of Av. Paulista? We have! Shopping Cidade São Paulo has created an organic products fair in its open-air garden, which will take place every Thursday from 10 am to 6 pm. In addition to the fruit, vegetable and vegetable market held in partnership with Tudo da Terra, the space will feature a stall selling vegan pastries and a variety of breads, beers and artisanal wines. The mall is on Av. Paulista, 1230, Bela Vista.

The week promises 12º C and Praça São Lourenço takes the opportunity to launch its sweet and savory fondue menu, which will be available until September. The tip is the Classic Cheese Fondue, made with emmental, gruyere and steppe, served with Italian bread, ham, bresaola, cured sausage, cucumber and pear pickles (R$ 128 – two people). Among the sweet options, the Fondue de Doce de Leite Viçosa served with churros stands out (R$86). The restaurant is located at Rua Casa do Ator, 608, Vila Olimpia, phone: 0/xx/11/3053-9300.

Fogo de Chão opened the Next Level Lounge, a comfortable space for cigar lovers attached to the Av. Girl Scouts. The place has a humidor with several options of cigars, a bar with national and imported labels and a menu with snacks. The space has capacity for up to 20 people and was designed to offer a special moment of relaxation. “The idea is to replicate the cigar shop in other Brazilian units, taking advantage of the growing demand for this type of customized service”, said Paulo Antunes, Country Manager of the chain.

A good choice for Mother’s Day are the hearty and tasty dishes from Chef Edgard Villar’s Rinconcito Peruano. The suggestion is pulpo parrilero (photo) which brings grilled octopus with sauce anticuchera and a light touch of pepper accompanied by golden potatoes (from R$99.90 to R$149.90). THE fettucine a la huncaine (R$59.90) is one of my favorite dishes and it always surprises with its rich and spicy sauce. For dessert, the traditional pie 3 leches (R$ 19.90), made with cinnamon and milk, is a delicious and comforting option. Choose the nearest unit by clicking here.
