Food Recommendations?

Heading to Rio for 2 weeks. Wondering if there are any can't-miss cheap food spots / local cuisine I should try while there.

Thanks!

    Try Santa Teresa or the world famous Bar Bico, the best bar/café in the Manhattan carioca.

    I'm not from Rio de Janeiro and I never went there -unhappily. I live almost 3 hours from there and I'm considering to go to Rio next year, but here in Brazil we have some good restaurants for a good low price, I honestly love the Brazilian food and I recommend taste all you can eat, not jsut one special thing. If you can, walk and search for humble places to eat -but it needs to seem clean enough. You should give more importance to neighborhoods that are not widely known, they have the best prices.

    I'll tell you just one thing: TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF, Rio de Janeiro is a dangerous place even for us. I don't know where you will be staying there, but if you could come with people who knows the city, it's better.

    Pay attention wherever you go and you will enjoy some of the best cities of the world!

    Have a good trip!

    Try their fruit juices and the açaí from Bibi Sucos or Big Polis (there are lots of them in the city). Very good for hot days and after the beach.

    After traveling around Brazil for several weeks, Rio de Janeiro was a bit of a let-down in the culinary department (I'd tried several local specialties elsewhere, at much lower prices). But the nice thing about Rio is you have the chance to try stuff from different parts of the country. I'd definitely encourage you to seek out hole-in-the-wall-type places - those were where I found my favorite, most memorable meals.

    General Trippy MediaMaryRe is so right about the fruit juice. My favorite combo was pineapple and mint. Sounded strange, but was amazing. Try a Caipirinha and a Guaraná soda as well.

    Salvador BahiaBrazil does salgadinhos (little fried things/bar snacks) really well. Everyone mentions pão de quiejo and coxinhas, but I wasn't sold on either - I'm not a big fan of the pale, creamy cheese used - ymmv. What I loved were empadas, pastéis, and bolinhos, filled with shrimp, fish, or chicken.

    OlindaOther things I enjoyed trying included tacacá (a mouth-numbing shrimp soup) in Manaus, acarajé (shrimp fritter sandwiches) in Salvador, and feijoada completa (black bean and pork stew) in Olinda. You can find all of these around Rio, and you at least have to try feijoada before leaving Brazil!
