Here at Beach Sucos, located at a bustling crossing of Ipanema, you can experience the Brazilian Culinary world. The prices are very fair and just one street away of the beach and the more expensive and elegant restaurants next to it, who charge you more the tourist prices as here at th Beach Sucos where you get for around 20 real a whole meal of local food with plenty of side dishes included such as rice, salad, beans, and manioc.
I’m talking about the Pratos Executivos. The staff is friendly and in just a few minutes you get your meal of authentic local food in this very colorfully decorated diner close to the Ipanema Beach. I had a grilled chicken filet with rice, farofa (manioc), black beans, salad, and fries together with a maracuja suco/juice. Yummy yummy yummy followed by a delicious Açai this purple ice cream made by the Açai fruit, so many Brazilians love as dessert.
But see for yourself:
And here is the famous slideshow:
The Bottom Line: If you want to eat like the locals do, right next to the fancy tourist restaurants, then stick with the Beach Suco at the Rua Visconde de Pirajá 198, Rio de Janeiro, just one street away from the Ipanema Beach Promenade.
From Rio with Love!
