Brazil and its cuisine are a wild and sometimes baffling stew of influences and cultures. Our walk dives right into that mix by taking you through the vibrant heart of Rio’s two most historically and architecturally significant neighborhoods: downtown’s Centro and Porto areas. These atmospheric districts are where the Portuguese began building Rio, where the slaves who were brought over to Brazil first landed, where samba was born and – most importantly – where this bustling city’s multicultural identity and food culture started taking shape.
