sushi-rio-de-janeiro-1There is a strong connection between Brazil and Japan. The largest Japanese population outside Japan lies in Brazil and, fortunately, their culinary culture has expanded throughout much of Brazil. Although Sao Paulo is the largest Japanese gastronomic center, Rio de Janeiro is not far behind. Japanese food choices in Rio are plentiful and they continue to multiply.

Located in the most exclusive part of the neighborhood of Bossa Nova, Ipanema Sushi has one of the best sushi chefs in Rio. In the small restaurant Chef Mauro Rodrigues, a disciple of the master, Carlos Ohata, prepares delicious dishes and never-seen before rolls.
