Central Rio might not be the first place you'd think of looking for authentic Swiss cuisine, but at Casa daSuica you'll find quality Swiss dishes that go way beyond fondue. The pork escalope stuffed with emmental cheese and ham, served with potato rosti and buttered peas, is a delicious example of the hearty dishes on offer. But the famous Swiss fondue is far from neglected – indeed, here it comes in 11 varieties, including a seagfood version, a classic emmental and gruyere version, and an unusual version with cheese, pears and mushrooms.
