Graca Veras from Piaui is the owner and chef de cozinha of this restaurant in Vila Planalto . She is running the restaurant since 1992, assisted from the beginning by her son Marcelo Veras who shares his mom’s passion for the traditional North-Eastern culinary.

Also the variety of natural juices is worth to be mentioned; one can choose – beside the more common ones – among mangaba, murici, seriguela, cupuacu and umbu.
