Eat at Por­cao

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - Escape - - RAFTING GRAND CANYON -

A stay in Rio can’t go with­out vis­it­ing ev­ery veg­e­tar­ian’s night­mare, bet­ter known as Por­cao. This meat-eaters’ restau­rant is big on grills and is a scram­ble of ac­tiv­ity as wait­ers weave be­tween pa­trons and ta­bles – and each other – with trays of lamb, beef, chicken and pork raised in the air with one hand, carv­ing knives in the other. Rio film fans will re­mem­ber the

chicken hearts’’ scene and I had the chance to try them out; per­haps a funny mo­ment in the film, but not funny on my taste­buds.

* Like Nigel in the film, my cock­a­too friends wel­comed a KFC feast with open beaks and squawked bois­ter­ously in ap­pre­ci­a­tion.

is re­leased on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray andDVDon Wed­nes­day. The author flew to Rio de Janeiro cour­tesy of Fox Home En­ter­tain­ment.
