There are few cities in the world that rival Rio de Janeiro’s beauty and energy. The people of Rio know how to party, making it one of the liveliest cities in South America. It is also an amazing place to eat well.

After two weeks of hearty eating in Rio de Janeiro and Iguazu Falls, we learned quite a bit about Brazilian dishes and had the extra notch in our belt to prove it! So let’s sample some of the best food in Brazil.

The feijoada gets all the trimmings like ears, feet, and tails. If that doesn’t sound appetizing, just think sausage. Sausage is always stuffed with bits of the animal.
