I will be in Sao Paulo and Rio next week.I've been traveling to Brazil since 2004 and married a Paulista, so I've some experience in Brazilian food and restaurants.Now, I'm looking to take it to the next level.
Sampa-I'd love some recs for your favorite paderias, lanchonetes, por kilos, pizzerias, and street foods that a pure Paulista. Also places for choppe, and cachaca.Maybe, the best cuzcuz Paulista?
Rio-Restaurants with real Carioca fare, places for bolinhos de bacalhao, and sucos.
In general, cuisine that is unique to those cities.And, I'm on a quest for the ultimate coxinha de galinha/frango.
