What you'll do

This delicious introduction to food and drinks from around Brazil is unlike any other. Over the course of 5-6 hours, we'll eat and drink our way across the most interesting parts of Rio that most visitors never get to see. We'll start in one of Rio's bustling street markets, where we'll taste exotic fruits and street food dishes. After that, we'll head to my favorite Portuguese restaurant in Lapa for a taste of old-school Brazil, where the waiters dress in white jackets, and serve the most delicious salt cod croquettes in town. From there, we'll wander toward Gloria, a beautiful neighborhood boasting some amazing street art and the famous Selaron steps. We’ll then take the subway to Flamengo, where we'll taste the uniquely delicious food from the Amazon, and finish up with a feast of dishes from Northeastern Brazil.
