Angu do Gomes

Brazilian in Centro & Praça Mauá

Set in a weather-beaten colonial building in Saúde, Angu do Gomes is a classic carioca eating spot. Opened in 1955, the restaurant is best known for its iconic angu, a kind of porridge-like polenta mixed with sausage, chicken, soy or seafood. It's a fine destination when visiting the sights of Praça Mauá or catching live music at the Pedra do Sal samba street party.
