Mensagem:  "A bad rap" means more than "a bad reputation", it means "an undeserved bad reputation, a bad reputation based on false accusations."

If you re-read the paragraph you submitted, you will see that the Mineiro food was falsely given a bad reputation.  The implication is that the food is good.
