Braseiro da Gavea - Eating in Rio de Janeiro - LikeALocal Guide

Why locals love it?

After a long period of renovation Braseiro is open again! So forget the "churrascarias" in the "all you can eat" way, very popular with tourists. We find those to be too much food. Sometimes you just want to have a simple and tasteful "picanha" (best kind of steak).

Why you should visit it

If locals love it, so should you! If you want to try a typical Brazilian food, go and ask for the picanha braseiro, with brocolis rice, fries and farofa. There you can have also a nice chopp (draft beer) surrounded by great atmosphere, packed with young people.

Special tip

Picanha Braseiro is enough to share between two or three people. For a start try the "linguicas" (sausages). Best days are Wednesdays and Thursdays.
