Fresh Food & Tapioca in RioTapioca is ubiquitous in Brazil and a staple at vegetarian restaurants. Here they look like flat white crepes (made from Brazil's indigenous manioc plant) and come savory or sweet. Cafe do Alto in Santa Teresa serves them stuffed with a variety of options - from fresh cheeses, grilled tomato and meats to passion fruit, acai and banana. The humble decor is so charming with its colorful paintings of fruits and vegetables, you feel like you're in a little beach town outside of Rio's busy streets.
