Welcome to Yuru Restaurant: the best in Northeastern cuisine
Coalho cheese, bottled butter, cashew apples, cashew nuts, black-eyes peas and strong seasoning like coriander and cumin are just some of the typical signature ingredients of Rio Grande do Norte and the Brazilian Northeast, given a special touch by chef Joca Pontes for you to enjoy at Yuru. ☺
“When subtly used, these items reveal the richness of our Northeastern culture, but they echo across the world”, explains the chef, considered one of Brazil’s 10 best.
The menu includes dishes like Roasted Carne de Sol, Shrimp Skewers, Mahi Mahi Ceviche, Fish Arancini, Carne de Sol Filet Mignon, Vegetable Pirão Vegetal and much more to delight our diners.
The restaurant is guaranteed to remain ingrained in the memory and palates of anyone who visits it. All this in a beautiful, cozy setting inspired by indigenous culture.
