The Story Behind Uma Nota’s Menu

Tucked away on the corner of Peel Street and Hollywood Road, our restaurant Uma Nota was the first restaurant to offer nipo-brasileiro cuisine in Hong Kong. It was an obscure cuisine to many but the liveliness of the restaurant and the flavours of Brazil and Japan attracted many customers. One year later, we secured a commercial space in Paris and turned it into a modern version of a samba bar that you would find in Brazil.

Let’s Get Rio

Endearingly known as “Cariocas”, the people of Rio de Janeiro enjoy a culinary culture that’s closely tied to Africa and Portugal, presenting additional influences from Spain and Italy.

Rio’s unique location in Brazil offers the best landscapes nature has to offer – sun, sea, pristine beaches, mountains, and the Carioca spirit of its inhabitants! The very inspiration behind Chef Gustavo’s newest menu.

DISCOVER: Bahia

Diverse, colourful and energetic, the coastal state of Bahia is home to Brazil’s most represented cuisine, reflected in everything from the region’s rich seafood stew Moqueca, iconic black-eyed pea Abara, and the national dish Feijoada.

A significant month in Brazil’s cultural calendar – with their National Independence Day falling on the 7th and Cachaça Day swiftly following on the 13th – the spirit of Brazil comes alive in September, and UMA NOTA is bringing the celebrations and flavours of Salvador to Hong Kong’s one and only Afro-Brazilian brunch!

The Roots of Uma Nota’s Nipo Brasileiro Cuisine

A vibrant energy runs through the streets of São Paulo, Brazil’s largest city. The city comes alive when the sun goes down, with live samba music playing in the background, the smell of sizzling meat filling the air and Paulistas flocking to botecos—Brazil’s small rustic bars—for a good time.
