Restaurant Review: Figueira Rubaiyat

We flew to Sao Paulo to celebrate my birthday but with no idea how. For once, my usual plan-to-the-very-last-detail self took a backseat to make way for the spontaneous side that I didn't know existed.

We had about 1 night to do some research and immediately zeroed in on the legendary "Figueira Rubaiyat" -- a place a lot of food blogs are raving about. We were so lucky to get reservations on such a short notice!

The restaurant is so unique as it is named after and built around a massive 130-yr old fig tree!



The food and wine surely didn't disappoint.


...But the highlight of the entire night has gotta be this!
For the first time, we got to try this perfectly marbled and perfectly grilled kobe beef!


The tag says "Tropical Kobe Beef - point of origin tracked and screened".

Here's a little secret:
I actually saved the red tag at the end of the meal because who's to say I'll ever get a chance again to eat a 14oz steak priced as a pair of designer shoes!


And here's what I wore...

-- pink crochet wrap top from Portman's in Aus -- Anne Klein swimsuit -- Lucky Brand jeans --
-- Louboutin "Picador" slingbacks -- hubby's belt --
