Mexican in Ipanema & Leblon

A few steps from Praça General Osório, this small open-sided eating spot fills a much lacking niche in Rio's food world: Mexican cuisine! Nibble on tortilla chips and guacamole before feasting on quesadillas and burritos. Try the Morelia (pulled pork in tomatillo sauce).

The chef-owner hails from Mexico and worked in the US before bringing his cooking to Rio.
