Mid-morning nosh at Bracarense
| Prawn empanadas and a caipirinha
Bar Bracarense is one of the more popular Brazilian style pubs in Rio. It's in the Leblon neighborhood blocks from the beach. I enjoyed some flaky prawn empanadas and a requisite caipirinha. The service was a little spotty but so is my Portuguese so maybe that was the reason. Still a great little spot for pre or post playa noshing.
