From the Book: Street Food in Rio de Janeiro
Making tapiocas (crêpes) in Copacabana Beach.
Photo by jonathaj/Flickr.com Throughout Rio -- downtown, in the suburbs, and beachside -- you'll come across vendors selling all kinds of tasty morsels and beverages. The suco de açai (açai juice) and various fruit smoothies can become a little addictive, and you'll no doubt have late-night cravings for tapiocas (crepes), assorted pastries, and caramel- or chocolate-filled churros. Cariocas (Rio natives) always know where to grab the best bites and delicious fruit drinks, so follow the locals and try traditional Brazilian street fare at rock-bottom prices.

Where to Eat:
Food-and-drink kiosks along the boardwalk of Copacabana and Ipanema beaches generally stay open all night (especially in summer). The Sunday market at Praça General Osorio Square has some decent eats. In Old Rio, downtown, and in the suburbs, try the street version of churrasquinhos (BBQ meat on skewers), cachorro quente (hot dogs), and the delicious pao de queijo (cheese bread).

How Much:
Pao de queijo is R$2 ($1.20), and juices are R$2-R$4 ($1.20-$2.40). Churros cost R$1 (60¢), and tapiocas range from R$2-R$5 ($1.20-$3), depending if they are sweet or savory. The prices of churrasquinhos vary but usually start at R$2 ($1.20).
