RIO DE JANEIRO

The one and only Copacabana beach with Sugarloaf in the distance

The luscious lombo (pork loin) at Porcão Rio's

Stunning beaches, legendary Carnaval celebrations, the samba and bossa nova...Brazil’s (and South America’s) second largest city has many claims to fame and its wide range of outstanding eats is no exception.

 

You wouldn’t know it from the stunning shot of Copacabana pictured above, but our three-day stopover was plagued with mostly foul weather, which meant brief walks along the water’s edge and a short visit to the Christ Redeemer. On the upside, though, it gave us plenty of time to gorge ourselves on a variety of delicious regional and international fare all over the city.
