A taste of Uruguay in Rio
South America, and Brazil in particular is a massive influence of ours. Our love affair with rostiserie roasted meats began twelve years ago after our first visit to this amazing country.
It's ironic though, that one of the most famous, and one of our favourite meat destinations in Rio, is actually the Uruguayan Sandwiches from Barraca Do Uruguay, situated bang smack on Ipanema Beach, at the world famous Posto 9 strip.
They offer a choice of Chicken, Beef or Sausage on a delicious bread roll, with onions, chimichurri, and chilli sauce. Throw in a refreshing Caprinha or ice cold Cerveja, and you are in pure heaven.
If you ever get the chance to visit Rio De Janeiro, make sure you stop at Barraca Do Uruguay for an experience you are sure to remember. Just look for the big Uruguayan flag located in the middle of the beach.
