About Casa da Feijoada

Rio de Janeiro has an enormous variety of food and food from a lot of foreign countries. But I believe if you come to Rio de Janeiro, you would like to taste (and know) a typical Carioca food, wouldn’t you? So, the plate is FEIJOADA. Made of black beans and a variety of smoked meats, the side dishes are rice, cabbage, cassava flour, and orange. And you should be asking: Orange???. Yes, I explain. The smoked meats are so salted. So, we use to suck orange buds during the meal, to neutralize the salt. But FEIJOADA is very heavy food, so, I suggest you eat at lunch. And, after eating, you certainly would like to take a nap after. Some restaurants use to serve FEIJOADA with Torresmo too. Torresmo is an appetizer made of pork skin and fat. Delicious!!! The restaurant I suggest to eat a very good FEIJOADA in Rio is CASA DA FEIJOADA, in Ipanema. The drink that must accompany the FEIJOADA is our traditional CAIPIRINHA (or Caipifruit or Caipiroska). The difference is: CAIPIRINHA is made with LEMON and CACHAÇA; Caipifruit is made with any fruit and CACHAÇA. Already the Caipiroska is made with any fruit (even Lemon) and VODKA. But I suggest you drink CACHAÇA, that is so Brazilian.
