Delight in Rio’s Freshest Sushi at Ipanema’s Opium
My traveling companions and I had a dinner reservation elsewhere in Ipanema, but when a storm hit that evening with strong winds and pelting rain, we took cover in the first restaurant we stumbled in to (soaking wet)—just a block from Ipanema beach in an easy-to-get-to location. Lucky for us, this place was Opium Sushi.
Having lived in Maui, HI, I know fresh sushi. Opium’s selection topped the charts and also put a tropical spin on traditional sashimis and rolls, with passionfruit glazes and tropical fruit pairings.
I recommend the platters to share: the Exotic Mix and the salmon platter. It is some of the freshest, most succulent sushi you’ll have ever tried, guaranteed.
