- Teva Vegetal
If you have a short stay in Rio and could pick only one restaurant of this list, I would strongly recommend Teva. The chef Daniel Biron, has a special regard in carefully selecting its organic seasonal fresh ingredients from local producers. To start with, the charming interior of the small restaurant with an industrial rustic design with open kitchen really catches the eye when passing on the street.
The dishes are well presented and mostly meant to be shared, allowing you to try more options. I highly recommend the beet tartar, deep fried breaded palm heart and the Portobello Carpaccio. If you’re quite hungry, the coli flour “steak” and the mushroom and cereal burger is a must!
Don’t forget to try to creative drinks there; my favorites are Bar XX and the Ipanema Sour.
On Saturdays and Sundays are the only days they open for lunch.
