Rua Garcia d’Ávila, 147B | Ipanema | Tapas Bar, with another branch in Leblon, at Rua Dias Ferreira, 113B
Daily from 12noon
Venga has two locations in Rio, one in Leblon and the other in Ipanema. Both fill up quickly and remain full till they close down, quite late at night. You will notice that lots of cariocas do not mind to wait for a table by the sidewalk, sipping sangria or a beer, having a chat, making new acquaintances while your work your hunger for the well thought of Spanish menu. The sangria is good, but I like a chilled rosé wine. For food, try the Bomba, the Revueltos de Bacalao and the Pan con Tomate, to go along with all of it.
