My sister just had the fortune of being down in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, she went to one of her favorite places to eat. She asked me to share with you this inside tip:
"When I am in Rio I love to go to Botequim Informal, a bar & restaurant close to the beach, in Copacabana, and ask for “tilapia with massed potatoes or rice”. Tilapia is a very common fish in Brazil. It’s very soft. Botequim Informal makes it grilled, with curry rice (my favorite) and salad or potato and salad. The portion is enormous and it is a very healthy and tasty food. For those who like draft beer, Botequim Informal is also a very good choice. Go for it!"
