Middle Eastern Restaurants in Rio de Janeiro

The influence of Arab settlers on Rio's culinary scene has been substantial, and Rio de Janeiro Middle Eastern restaurants and snack bars are more common than one might imagine.

While it's more common to find Middle Eastern food in Rio at standup snack bars than at formal restaurants, Arab and Arab da Lagoa are two good exceptions to the rule.

Meanwhile, up in the hills of Santa Teresa, Bar do Bonde has been quietly selling delicious Middle Eastern dishes for several years, but is as yet largely undiscovered by tourists.

If you're looking for quick fix Middle Eastern food in Rio de Janeiro, you shouldn't have to look too far - snacks such as Esfiha (folded pastries filled with meat or spinach and cheese) and kibe (meat croquettes) have become staples at virtually every snack bar and boteco (bar/restaurant) in Rio, with Jobi and Bibi Sucos both doing tasty versions.
