Food Scene
There's no shortage of incredible food in Rio. Here are some must-visit spots for all types of travelers.
One of Copacabana's most celebrated eateries. Opt for the polvo à vinagrete — some of the freshest and most flavorful octopus we've had to date. The chopp (draft beer) are equally beloved. It gets packed, so go early or prepare to spill over into the street!

An order of pataniscas de bacalhau is a necessity. Pavão Azul’s pataniscas are made without potatoes, which is a recipe not as readily found around Rio. Other must-eats include the escondidinho—a sort-of deep dish shepherd's pie, stocked with either shrimp or carne seca, a dried beef—and a selection of pasteis, the fried, filled half-moon pockets of cheese, meat, or shrimp. At night, Pavão Azul is bursting with crowds in between its two outposts, which are located directly across the street from each other.
