Not much to say: for snacks like esfihas (Arabic food), this is where everybody goes when shopping at 25 de Março. I went there today and didn't even eat as it was too crowded. It's cheap, fast, clean, traditional. Lots of sweets too

To truly know São Paulo, you have to start at the old
centre, full of history and landmarks with stories to
tell. Get a taste of local food at the Municipal
Market, and if you are brave enough, head to the
crowded shopping street “25 de março” for cheap deals
on a wide assortment of items. Beautiful buildings in
this area include the Post Office Building, Luz
Station, Pagé Gallery, Pateo do Colegio and the iconic
