Toca do Caju: Rodizio (churrascuria)
I came here and ate churrasco for my first time in Brazil. I had Brazilian bbq at my travel companion's house, but never rodizio style at a restaurant, until this time. The spread of side dishes at the salad bar was of corn, salad, beans, farofa, kale, hard boiled eggs, heart of palm and other cold dishes.
The main attraction is an assortment of all you can eat meat, cut directly from the spike on which it's roasted. Some is chicken liver, heart, some pork, sausage, tenderloin, flank and top sirloin. This meat is bbq-ed to carnivorous perfection, juicy, pink and spitting on the spike. This is the probably one of the best meals I ever ate in Brazil, and the beauty is that they brought it to America!
Olho do Lula: Rustic and delicious
This restaurant is located by the beach at Av. Cabo Branco in front of the Litoral Hotel.
Very simple but clean and serve excellent seafood. The waiters are very nice and the onwer is always there to guarantee the excellence of their services. The prices are great, not expensive at all. You can find a great meal for U$ 15 dollars in a plate big enought for 2.
Mangai: One of the best restaurants.
The restaurant is open from morning to night. You can have a delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner here.As they open very early in the morning, they close early too. By 10:00 p.m., they say good night!
Favorite Dish: I can't say which my favourite dish is...because they are all my favourite dishes...but ok, try "pão de macaxeira"(macaxeira bread), with juice or coffee. For lunch, I love chips with cheese rice, "carne do sol " ("sun meat" is the translation ,it is a salty meat, fried or baked)

Mangai: Local and exotic food
It is a lovely typical restaurant with local food...exotic pehaps. Try "tapioca" , a kind of food made of flour, try goat meat and bloody chicken. I am telling you:the food is delicious.
