Rio de Janeiro is a place that thrives on different foods and snacks. It includes street foods, snack foods, bar foods and beach foods too. The most recognizable ones include the yummy churros dipped in chocolate and the tasty empanadas. Here are the 10 list of snacks that you should not miss when you visit Rio de Janeiro.
First is the Pão de Queijo. Locals and tourists love this type of cheese bread. The form of this bread is in little balls and if you’ve tried to taste it, this is somehow addictive because of the awesome combination of several cheeses and the yucca flour that is part of the ingredient. You can see this at Santa Teresa most particularly as they produce the fresh ones. They are baked daily. It is ideal to have them in the morning. These are incredibly delicious and right for people who are vegetarian. This type of snack can be purchased when you are hungry and driving on the road.
Another is the Açai. This is considered as the super fruit that is made from palm berry and from bitter to sweet. It is popular for desserts and is usually used for ice creams. You can make this as your afternoon snacks. In most parts of the world it is being used as an aid to lose weight.
Third, we have the Pipoca. This is made from popcorn and there are two options to eat this. There is the salgado or the salty flavor as an option.
Another is the doce which is the sweet version of the pipoca. Consider purchasing the Pastel too. This is a must taste pastry that is covered with cheese, shrimp and meat as the combination inside the crumby bread.
For the fifth food, you should try Coxinhas. This is called as their little drumsticks and it is considered to be savory snacks. Most people eating this match it with a cold draft beer of chope for an afternoon snack.
Sixth is the Kibe. This is a finger food with crusty and dark wheat in the outside appearance. For the inside flavor, it is composed of ground beef that is spicy. Cariocas loved this kind of food.
Tapioca is the next. You can usually see this on cafes and street vendors. The flavor of this food is savory and is great because it’s gluten-free.
Consider purchasing Globos too. It’s a form of chips that is great for snacks.
The Caldinho de Feijão is a nutritious soup that you shouldn’t miss.
Lastly, the Kebabs are great taste for dinner. These are just some of the snacks that you can’t miss when you are visiting Rio de Janeiro. It is truly something that can give life to your trip.
