Where to Eat – Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Where to Eat – Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

#SmallBitesRadio has been named the #14 Top Hospitality Programs on the Planet in 2020 and 2021 and #Bluejeanfood.com has been named #23 Top Philadelphia Lifestyle Blogs, Websites & Influencers of 2021

The world has changed dramatically over the last year and a half. Sadly we have lost many good souls. Covid has transformed the way we live, work, and play. Things previously taken for granted at times are cherished now. With digital means the world has managed to make sure we are all still connected in different forms. Digital technology cannot solve all problems though. The in-person connections and experiences such as traveling and entertainment have become extremely difficult or nonexistent anymore at times. What took seconds can now take months to accomplish. For better or worse this is our reality whether you want to believe it or not. No one is immune. This post is not an endorsement or a recommendation of safety. Until the pandemic is over everyone has to make choices for themselves of the risks you are willing to take. I understood the risks and thankfully the rewards were bountiful and everyone returned happy and healthy. This is not the case for everyone. Hopefully one day soon we can all just say we are going somewhere and the biggest worry will be if it will be a sunny day or not when we arrive. Until then please remember to take care of yourself and others in a friendly and conscientious manner. If we are lucky, maybe those on the left and right could meet again in the middle someday without masks on.

Now about Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. What an amazing area to explore, dine, and relax. The beach areas of Ipanema, Leblon, Copacabana, and Leme are spectacular in their own ways even though they are so close to one another. Each has its own characteristics to make it special and unique and it is fun to hear the local’s debate which one is the best. No matter where you choose, you won’t be disappointed. My only advice is to make sure that you get a room on a high floor with a beachfront view wherever you stay. The landscape alone will make you never want to leave. I can tell you from experience that the JW Marriott Hotel Rio de Janeiro* 2 bedroom oceanfront executive suite may be one of the best around Copacabana since you are situated smack dab in the middle of the beach and activities. Be rest assured though, even if you don’t stay there no matter your budget there is something for everyone. Best part is that you can arrive in Rio in just 10 hours from Philadelphia International Airport on American Airlines*.

Most importantly, what about the food? Below are listed some places I enjoyed during my visit and I’m sure you will too. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don’t judge anywhere by the picture as many places had multiple courses or my picture is terrible.

Marius Degustare – Leme – Nautical memorabilia, rocks & antiques set the scene at this organic meat & seafood restaurant. Marius Degustare appears on page 827 of Patricia Schultz’s best-selling book, “1000 Places To See Before You Die” as it truly is a feast for your eye and stomach alike. The seafood and steak options are endless, top quality, and the buffet is AMAZING! The servers here make it an experience as well with how great they are and happy. Sorry, the picture is terrible of what they really offer as this was just 1% of what we ate and not even close to the best food they served. Just go to Google and see better ones.  

O Caranguejo – Copacabana – A laid-back tavern that serves beer, fresh fish, its famous shrimp patty, and CRAZY delicious seafood moqueca. This place is a gem and was one of the best overall meals I’ve had in a long time.

Braseiro – Galeto – Copacabana – Quaint spot with roast chicken & fries, plus farofa & vinaigrette. The chicken is some of the best you’ll ever have at a price that can’t be beat.

Meia Pataca – Copacabana – Beachfront restaurant that serves amazing seafood. Had the Seafood Symphony with grilled lobster, shrimp, squid, and potatoes that was so GOOD. The service here was beyond world class. My son had a Philadelphia Phillies shirt on and they had baseball playing on the television and provided him a front row seat for him to watch the game. Even more surprising was that when the baseball game was over they put on the television the NFL Films Super Bowl LII Champions movie for us to watch. Just crazy cool they would do that figuring we were from Philadelphia!!!

Haru Sushi Bar – Copacabana – More Philadelphia love here as you can still get a Philly Roll in South Americ that is actually really good. Sushi was fresh, the dumplings yummy, and the chicken and shrimp dishes were wonderful. Great meal here.

Chon Kou – Copacabana – A family-run Chinese restaurant that has been serving classic dishes for over 40 years with ocean view dining on their balcony. Had Mongolian Beef, Chicken and vegetables, and pork fried rice.

Estação Minas Bistrô – Copacabana – An old-fashioned classic style Brazilian eatery featuring a Minas-style buffet. Google address is incorrect, but they only moved right around the corner. The people here were so pleasant and kind. They made you feel like family and that you were visiting their own home. Nice choice of fresh dishes that change daily.

Quick Galetos  – Copacabana – A traditional Brazilian grill with some of the best seasoned grilled chicken since 1975. You won’t be disappointed with a visit here.

Carretão Ipanema Classic Grill – Ipanema – A charming, traditional steakhouse with a variety of all-you-can-eat meats & a full buffet. Again, the picture is terrible as I just wanted to eat. The servers were top notch and there were endless delicious meat options to eat. Good spot to dine especially if you are hungry.

Salada Verde – Copacabana – Old school style Brazilian cafeteria where you have endless options of food to choose from and pay by the kilo. Enjoyed everything I had and prices were crazy cheap for the decent quality of meal.

The Carioca – Copacabana – Fantastic breakfast choices with an ocean view while dining. They have something for everyone here and it was all fresh with international favorites.

Pappa Jack – Copacabana – Pizza, pizza, pizza is the name of the game here. Many different varieties to fit whatever you like.

Momo Gelato Artesanal – Copacabana – Located at the Art Deco Masterpiece Copacabana Palace a Belmond Hotel is some of the best stracciatella gelato you will find anywhere. HIGHLY recommended!

Sorvete Alex – Copacabana – Hands down a great milkshake made with their pistache ice cream. It was SO GOOD!

Sorveteria Cairu – Copacabana – Really nice dessert of banana caramelizada ice cream.

In the mood to party? Everyone is invited to a 21st birthday celebration to enjoy a nice adult beverage. The beverage of choice and the epic 21st Anniversary Party is being thrown by 21st Amendment Brewery. We will chat with Co-Founders Nico Freccia and Shaun O’Sullivan about the party at the brewery and about how 21st Amendment Brewery releases a new 21st Anniversary West Coast IPA in 33 states across the country in tribute to the hottest beer style that defined the brewing scene. Established in 2000, 21st Amendment brewpub in San Francisco’s historic South Park neighborhood quickly became one of the city’s favorite pubs. 21st Amendment began expanding beyond the Bay Area by helping to pioneer the movement to canned craft beer. Known for their witty names and delicious brews, 21st Amendment offers year-round selections, as well as seasonal offerings and their infamous once-in-a-while limited-edition releases. Sold in 33 states plus Washington D.C., 21st Amendment produces beer in its state-of-the-art brewery headquarters in San Leandro, California and is among the top 50 craft beer brewers in America.

Last but certainly not least, Richard Massi the President and Co-Founder of Fight On Makenna Foundation will tell us about the 2021 Bite for the Fight Food Festival happening on Saturday, September 25th. The Fight on Makenna Foundation was created in the memory of his 14 year old daughter Makenna who lost her battle with leukemia in September 2018. The Fight on Makenna Foundation’s mission is to improve the quality of life for kids and families facing pediatric cancer. In their two short years of existence, they have raised over $200K to help fund programs in partnership with Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia to help kids and families as they deal with the rigors of cancer treatments. Makenna was a foodie (mostly carnivore) and loved friends, family, the Food Network, and the Philadelphia Eagles. So they created Bite for the Fight to showcase some of the best food, beer, wine, and spirits in the Philadelphia Area. Makenna was a fighter to the end of her short life and they brought that competitive spirit to the festival by allowing the restaurants to compete for the honor of the Best Bite voted on by the patrons of the festival. The 2019 event was even attended by Chef Robert Irvine.

D and L Coffee Service Inc. presents Small Bites Radio the #1 listed “Food Radio show Philadelphia” and #1 listed “Food Radio show South Jersey”. Small Bites on Wildfire Radio returns this Sunday, July 25th at 635pm EST with a fantastic lineup! #SmallBitesRadio has been named #14 out of the Top 30 Best Hospitality Shows on the planet for 2020 and 2021 as well as being named #23 Top Philadelphia Lifestyle Influencer in 2021. With the show having a #BBQ theme, who better to be special co-host this week than pitmaster Timothy Monk of MONKMAN’S BBQ & EGG ROLLS known for his legendary egg rolls and delicious homemade Bar-B-Que. He had a passion and hobby for barbecuing that with hard work and recipe development has turned a dream into a loyal local cult following. People anxiously wait for his pop-up events to be announced and as soon as they are they always sell-out in mere hours.

We will kick things off talking to Bill Gillespie a bestselling author and the founder of Smokin’ Hoggz BBQ an award-winning barbecue team that has claimed top prize in the Jack Daniel’s World Championship Invitational BBQ and the American Royal Association Invitational, and has won hundreds of other barbecue awards. His new book ‘Hot and Fast BBQ on Your Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker’ teaches grillers how to get amazing BBQ as fast as possible on their Weber Smokey Mountain. The book starts by teaching readers the basics of getting started with a Weber Smokey Mountain including components of the grill itself, differences between the size options, and the most important ingredients for smoking success (charcoal, smoke wood, brines, marinades, etc.) to ensure they have the groundwork laid out before hopping into one of Bill’s award-winning recipes.

Then Chris Sussman, a.k.a. The BBQ Buddha will join us. He has cooked on award-winning BBQ competition teams such as EGGcellent Eats and Dizzy Pig, and is a member of the Big Green Egg Pro Team. In Chris’s cookbook, ‘The Four Fundamentals of Smoking’ it teaches readers about the four fundamental principles that have the most impact on whether the meat comes out tasting succulent, tender and pleasantly smokey, or dry, rubbery and bland. Chris demystifies concepts like controlling air flow and humidity to perfectly capture smoke flavor in food, as well as maintaining the ideal BBQ zone temperature, and the secrets to knowing when a cook is complete, which go beyond internal temperature. Chris gives readers a sturdy foundation of knowledge, then shares foolproof recipes demonstrating these techniques in action with additional tips, so their BBQ comes out perfectly tender with incredible smoky flavor every time.

Last, but certainly not least we’ll chat with Adam McKenzie the creator of This Jew Can Que. His debut cookbook, ‘Weeknight Smoking on Your Traeger’, shows people that smoking and grilling have never been easier thanks to his recipes that take advantage of the hands-off, fast-cooking features of the popular Traeger Grills and other wood pellet grills so that grilling doesn’t have to be a hobby reserved for the weekend. It’s something you can easily include in your busy life for a weeknight meal, thanks to Adam’s recipes that take advantage of the hands-off, fast-cooking features of the popular Traeger grill and other wood pellet grills. Also Adam has collaborated with nationally recognized brands, namely Traeger® Wood Fired Grills as well as Snake River Farms, Head Country Bar-B-Que and more as well he has partnered with Spiceology to create a line of seasoning blends.

You say you STILL NEED MORE!!! Don’t forget we still have our regular weekly segments from author, Courier-Post nightlife correspondent, The Peasant Wife contributor, and The New York Times recognized blogger John Howard-Fusco for foodie news of the week, Chef Barbie Marshall who is a Chef Gordon Ramsay Hell’s Kitchen Season 10 finalist and has appeared on Season 17 of FOX Hell’s Kitchen #AllStars as well named Pennsylvania’s most influential chef by Cooking Light will delight us with her observation of the week, highly acclaimed and respected Vegan Chef Christina Martin will delight with her ‘Healthy Bite’ of week giving nourishing and wholesome advice, and a joke of the week from legendary joke teller Jackie “The Joke Man” Martling of The Howard Stern Show fame.

Adams’ Rib & Grille – Claymont, DE

#SmallBitesRadio has been named the #14 Top Hospitality Programs on the Planet in 2020 and 2021 and #Bluejeanfood.com has been named #23 Top Philadelphia Lifestyle Blogs, Websites & Influencers of 2021

Very close to Bellevue State Park making a great pickup location as the park has many picnic areas is Adam’s Rib. Sadly I deleted the photo I had of the food by accident. What I can tell you though is that the service here is amazing. The owner is a top notch gentleman and he couldn’t have been more of a joy to talk to and the difficulties of the being the the hospitality business. I had a full rack of ribs with an order of fries and a 2 piece meat combo with 1/4 chicken leg and smoked wings with green beans and collard greens. I enjoyed the ribs and the wings as they had a nice flavor and meat was tender. Only note would be that the 1/4 chicken was a tad overcooked and I could have went with a few more fries in the side order. Could have just been a misstep, but either way I would still say a nice place to check out if in the area and great picnic food for the park.

Gianna Simone, the host of the healthy plant-based living Amazon Prime Video/YouTube series “Love, Gianna,” and just released her vegan cookbook “Plant Love” with best friend & actress Andrea Logan and both of them will be joining us. In Amazon’s “Love, Gianna,” Actress Gianna Simone explores the many benefits of Veganism. In the highly anticipated new season premiering this month, Gianna interviews world-renowned doctors, sports stars, experts, and more in the field of plant-based nutrition. She features some of the world’s top plant-based athletes who are defying stereotypes, breaking world records, winning Olympic medals, and inspiring us to all go plant-based. In addition, this new season features the latest and greatest advice from the world’s sharpest minds in plant-based nutrition and advocacy. Gianna and her guests share where vegans actually get their protein, the connection between animal proteins, heart disease, and cancer, and how to heal from the inside out through our diet. Gianna teamed up with actor and best friend Andrea Logan to release their new plant-based cookbook, “Plant Love.” With heart disease as the nation’s #1 cause of death and a whole food plant-based diet being able to prevent and reverse it, Gianna is working to send a message to the world that there is a brighter future. For co-author Andrea, “Plant Love” was created in a time of juggling single motherhood, homeschooling 3 children during Covid, and healing from a divorce. With her over 230,000 followers on Instagram, Andrea wanted to take this opportunity to be the strongest she could for herself and her children by diving into Plant Love to help heal and inspire others.

Everyone who knows me knows that Stroopwafels are one of my all-time favorite snacks and used to have them delivered to me directly from the Netherlands. With more people understanding these delicious treats need to be enjoyed by everyone we will talk to Stroopwafel company Finger Licking Dutch Founders John Bronson, former NFL player for the Arizona Cardinals and his wife Femke Veelenturf with their company based in Philadelphia, PA. On one of their first dates, she gave John Bronson a traditional Dutch food package with stroopwafels in it, and the rest as you would say is history. Currently, Finger Licking Dutch Stroopwafels produces and imports their authentic Dutch stroopwafels (Camel Waffle Cookies) directly from The Netherlands to the U.S and other countries. Finger Licking Dutch is currently being featured on the popular retail television channel, HSN, Zulily and can be found in T.J.Maxx and over 1500 retail locations nationwide.

On a mission to make southern-inspired soul food favorites more heart healthy, Rene took her grandmother’s amazing recipes, removing much of the harmful fats and pork, and she began whipping up healthier versions of old-style favorites, leading to her 20 year reign as the most in-demand soul food chef for A-list soirees.

Sharon Shvarzman, the owner of an Israeli restaurant in Philly, keshetkitchen, and winner on Food Network’s The Great Food Truck Race with Tyler Florence will be with us also.

Shvarzman wants to be part of the community and support it through his comforting Middle Eastern cooking. He wants to be part of the Philadelphia community’s lives whenever they need a little happiness–he believes that food can bridge gaps and bring people together. A contestant on Food Network’s Worst Cooks in America, who then became a proud winner of the Great Food Truck Race, Executive Chef Sharon Shvarzman’s passion for cooking has brought him to this moment of opening his own restaurant in March 2021.
