  • About

This colorful side dish is the Brazilian version of fried rice. It turns up at churrascarias and restaurants in Rio de Janeiro and São Paolo, with each chef trying to outdo his peers with the elaborateness of the flavorings. The version here comes from a wonderful restaurant called Candidos, located in the port town of Pedra de Guaratiba, an hour south of Rio.
