Serra de Cantareira and As velhas Restaurant

good resort to get away from stone jungles in SP

So in one of the days of what i can call already a routine during my stay in SP , i got away to Serra de Cantareira, honestly, in SP, if you stay there for long, there is nothing left to do, except visiting places you already been to, which is not really traveling, but living, or going to parties, so i didn't miss chance to get away.
Serra de Cantareira is the name for a mountain ridge and an area around it, it have some village communities, very nice nature and i got at last a breath of quite different atmosphere.

After looking for our final destination for 30 minutes we got there, to magnificent restaurant. I haven't ate such a good food for cheap anywhere in the world, I can swear on holy bible on it, i really can, if you will be around Serra de Cantareira, go there ! i suggest you, i strongly suggest you, it is pleasure you won't actually forget so fast. Name of Restaurant As velhas
You pay only 26R$ which is 14$US and you can eat all the food in there and they have a lot, and not cheap, tasteless grass-like mass, but cooked like in descent restaurant, It is first place in the world that i`ve been to , i officially announce that which have descent, good, tasty food in a self service industry. Maybe i exaggerate a little bit, of course there are nice self serivices somewhere out there, but i haven't been there hehe :)

So look at those photos they talk better than words.

Look at this bread, i mean i`ve been a lot to different cultures, i lived in Australia, been to Asia, Africa, ate in every country in europe, everywhere i ate, i tried bread. but this will stay in my mind as the best bread i have ever ate, it should cost 1$ a piece in my opinion and you can eat as much of it as you want, i asked cook to buy one piece for me to take away, but it was still preparing.

This is the one thing you actually pay for 6$R per plate

I wish there were more restaurants like that in world, it's quietness reminds me of some places in Chezh republic, or good Latvia countryside restaurants.

This place turns out to be a small museum as well if you wanna do little exploring :)
(pics coming shortly)

The area where restaurant is situated has some shops, Cacaca shop, Brazilian tequila or w/e it is 40% strong, ewww. Too much for me :)
