Respond to Review of CLOSED: Cafe Corbucci
Review: We made it to Cafe Corbucci on the 3rd and last day of our visit to Brasilia. On Sunday, we tried 2 of the other restaurants, on Monday, Cafe Corbucci is closed. What a relief it turned out to be . After 9 days of traveling in Brazil and eating mainly the buffet lunches, we were really fed up. Mariana, the owner of Cafe COrbucci greeted us warmly in English (that itself was a blessing!), explained every item on the limited menu, gave us a short story of how Cafe Corbucci came about (Corbucci is her last name), and shared many other experiences. She also gave us many tips about vegan dining in Brazil, and in particular recommended some restaurants in our next stop Rio. Cafe Corbucci is also a blessing becaus it is the only vegetarian restaurant in Brasilia that is open in the evenings, and Mariana is quite proud of this, as she should be. We had the kofte, the soup of the day (tomato), and dumpling like empanadas that were fried and come in 4 different fillings. We truly indulged in the fried stuff, and it was truly heaven. The fresh juices were large servings and came with ginger or other add ons. The desserts sounded nice, but we did not have any more space. Hats off to Mariana for Cafe Corbucci and I hope she thrives with this beautiful cafe.
