Why settle for one steak when you can have as much as you can manage? Rio de Janeiro steakhouses are a carnivore's dream come true. More than a simple slab of meat, the city's churrascarias (meat grills) see waiters bring over slice after slice of meat to your plate until you can literally eat no more.
And if the concept of all-you-can-eat meat sounds a little unsophisticated, prepare to be pleasantly surprised. The quality at top end meat restaurants such as Porcao and Marius Carnes is top-notch, and the set price also includes as many trips as you like to the heavily laden buffet bar, which will offer salads, sides, sushi and countless other treats.
Rio de Janeiro steakhouses are the perfect place to come if you have a hearty appetite, and generally deliver excellent value for money. Carretao, which has branches in Ipanema and Copacabana, is a great mid-range option that delivers quality meat at an oh-so-affordable price. Just don't plan on squeezing into your swimsuit and heading to the beach afterwards...
