Some of the traditional dishes you should try when visiting Rio de Janeiro or to make at home for your own Olympic party:
– Arroz e Feijão: Rice and beans (with meat, chicken, or fish and salad and/or French fries). [Black beans and rice combined is the basis of the Rio de Janeiro cuisine — it is the most traditional food you can try while in Rio).
- Churrasco Rodízio: all-you-can-eat barbecue.
- Feijoada: The national dish — black-bean stew with beef and pork (plus rice, collard greens, and manioc flour).
