Middle Eastern in Ipanema & Leblon

A much-loved neighborhood favorite, Faraj is the go-to spot for both satisfying snacks like a kibbe (meat croquette), esfiha (triangular spinach or meat pastry) or juice. For something more substantial, there's zesty tabbouleh, creamy hummus and daily lunch specials such as lamb kebabs with rice and lentils. Excellent value.
