Bar do Luiz Nozoie

Bosque da Saúde, São Paulo

A bar with an old charm

Bar do Luiz Nozoie is a place to go have a beer, yes, but mainly to eat tasteful, handmade food, prepared with love – such as seafood and the fishes he goes fishing himself!

Appetizers are on the bar in glass bowls for you to poke it with your toothpick – they’re not to miss. There’s also a kind of fresh shrimp salad that you must order, as well as the sausage meats that he cuts in very thick triangles.

I lived in Barcelona and the mood that this Japanese guy from Ipiranga offers his clients brings the same charm of Spanish bars. I found this bar totally by chance, many years ago, as I’m from Ipiranga and I’ve always walked around a lot around the area.

One day, the two little tables on the sidewalk, in front of a garage, got my attention, and I stopped by with my husband to check it out on a Monday afternoon. The place was much smaller back then. So we went in, met Luiz Nozoie’s whole family, drank beer and had a taste of the wonderful snacks. Then we went again, and once more…

The bar was restructured a few years ago, is a little bigger now, but it’s still a family thing. It is mostly visited by inhabitants of the neighborhood, but people from other areas go there two because it’s a mandatory stop.

Luiz Nozoie’s bar customers are loyal old-timers. I decided to take my father once and discovered that he used to go there when he was young. A calligraphy poster my father made was still there on one of the walls! It was an amazing discovery.
