One of many restaurants in Rio where you pay per kilo, this one stands out for its use of natural and organic products and its delicious fruit juices. The food is mainly vegetarian, with many soy-based dishes, but there are fish and chicken options. On hot days seek out the somewhat hidden upstairs dining room, which is air-conditioned. Attached to the restaurant is Emporia Natural—a health-food shop that sells oven-baked pastries to go. The palm heart with soft and
creamy catupiry cheese is a winning combination.
