Catupiry Restaurant: Discover the Catupiry Empório

I chose to have lunch at the Catupiry restaurant on a Friday after many years of delaying going there.

In fact, since I was a child I have always been passionate about the brand. The kind that fights to always have original Catupiry in homemade dishes and that changes pizzerias if they use another brand of cream cheese, but even so, it took me years to discover Empório Catupiry.

I definitely should have gone much sooner, as I really loved the restaurant.

What is Empório Catupiry like?

On a street without movement and not at all beautiful, there is the Catupiry restaurant. When we enter, we already get individual commands, which is great for those who go there in groups.

The store, which was previously called Delícias da Catupiry, has existed for more than 20 years, but was reopened in 2017 under the name Empório Catupiry.

Actually, the restaurant is very beautiful. It's not big, but when I went, although it was full, there were places to sit.

The Catupiry Restaurant

First of all, it's worth registering: I found the prices very attractive. I'll talk about the main ones here.

To start, I chose a coxinha of the chicken whith catupiry (R$ 8.90). It was the most expensive item on the menu. I'm passionate about coxinha and I loved the one there. I just wish the catupiry was a little separated from the chicken so you could taste the cream cheese even more, but it was delicious. I would eat again.

Afterwards, we ordered the main dishes. I chose the gnocchi stuffed with catupiry (R$ 34.90) and it was great. It comes with a lot of filling. We also ask for the chicken parmigiana (R$ 39.90), which was good, but a little hard, and Eggplant parmigiana (R$ 40.90), which was also delicious.
