Thus today I’ll give you a tip about a wonderful restaurant in Barcelona, one of my favorites there: El Rey de la Gamba, specializing in seafood.

2 El Rey de la Gamba Barcelona | Restaurant | El Rey de la Gamba

The prices are fair, the seafood is fresh and the dishes are well prepared and, I must say, huge!!

I really recommend the Seafood Paella (Paella de Pescado), since there are various types of Paella.

While waiting for your dish, worth drinking a nice mug of cold beer, after all on the Summer the temperatures are high.

You can choose a table on the inside of the restaurant, which has air conditioning, but I recommend that you choose a table outside, because as well as enjoy the atmosphere of the city, you will have the opportunity to observe people who pass by.

TIP: Before you sit down at the table tell the waiter that you do not intend to pay service charge, so you are not forced to pay a fixed rate and is free to give a tip that you find fair and convenient.

Rio de Janeiro: Botequim Informal – The best feijoada and caipirinha in the city

Leave a reply

If you go to Rio de Janeiro is clear that it can’t fail to visit the statue of the “Christ the Redeemer” (Cristo Redentor), but there is another obligatory stop in the wonderful city, especially if you are a lover of a good drink and good food: the bar called Botequim Informal.

2 botequim informal Rio de Janeiro: Botequim Informal   The best feijoada and caipirinha in the city

Botequim Informal is one of the coolest bars in the Rio. The first unit was opened in Leblon, the second house was opened in the same neighborhood, and, some years after, the chain opened the third house in Barra, and then reached Ipanema, Copacabana, heading also for places like Niterói, Botafogo, among others.

I confess that my favorite unit is the one in Copacabana on Rua Domingos Ferreira, 215. I explain you why this is my favorite: the service is FANTASTIC, I have been there with my husband so many times that we have turned friends of the waiters, cooks, and managers. You know that feeling where you get to a place and the staff receives you with affection, respect, calling you by the name? I love it, something we have on the countryside that is also possible to find  in Rio de Janeiro.

The feijoada and caipirinha at Botequim Informal are the best in Rio de Janeiro. Eat the feijoada there and you will never forget!

But the feijoada is not the only option at Botequim Informal – the menu is quite varied, full of tidbits, full meals for lunch or dinner, and of course healthy food also.

Rio de Janeiro: Restaurant “Aprazível”, delicious Brazilian food

1 Reply

When I was in Rio de Janeiro covering the Fashion Rio Summer 2014 I received an irresistible invitation: have lunch at the Restaurant “Aprazível” (the literal translation would be “Pleasant”).

I had heard only good things about this restaurant, but I wanted to discover personally what was so special about this place, after all, like so many others, it offers Brazilian food.

We eat Brazilian food all the time, made by our mothers or by our grandparents, we are demanding, after all which food is better than the one made by our mothers??

Upon reaching the restaurant I’ve loved the atmosphere at the first glance – a beautiful place surrounded by the nature, a lots of green, lots of birds and butterflies, using few words – a lovely place!!

As we were only 2 persons (my husband and I), We chose a table for two in a corner that had a beautiful view and we started to explore the menu.

5 Aprazivel restaurante no Rio de Janeiro comida culinaria brasileira Rio de Janeiro: Restaurant “Aprazível”, delicious Brazilian food

Since it was a Brazilian food restaurant, we have asked for a Brazilian wine too. While choosing, we ordered a basket “pão de queijo com linguiça mineira grelhada” (a kind of bread made of cheese filled with grilled sausage) … yummy…. a delight, but I could only eat two of them as I want to keep fit!

As we are good cooks, my husband and I went to visited the kitchen and chat with the Chef. And of course we took advantage of the visit to see the dishes that coming out, so it would be easier to choose our meal!

18 Aprazivel restaurante no Rio de Janeiro comida culinaria brasileira Rio de Janeiro: Restaurant “Aprazível”, delicious Brazilian food

My choice was the “Peixe Tropical” (a salt water grilled tropical fish, served with orange sauce, coconut rice with cashew nuts and roasted banana)

10 Aprazivel restaurante no Rio de Janeiro comida culinaria brasileira Rio de Janeiro: Restaurant “Aprazível”, delicious Brazilian food

My husband’s choice was “Moquequinha do Rio” (a fish cooked in a delicious sauce of natural coconut milk, accompanied by white rice and “farofinha” – spiced corn flour).

But I’ll be honest here: I just think it lacked a bit of spice, but that is because I’m used to the authentic “Moquequinha” from Bahia – if you ever try the authentic “Moquequinha” in Bahia you will always be dissatisfied with others!

And to finish this our delicious lunch, my husband asked for a dessert, I did not ordered dessert, again because I want to keep my shape, but I confess I tried a little bit of my husband’s dessert.

The dessert choice was the “Banana Santa Teresa” (baked banana with cinnamon and sugar, served with vanilla ice cream and chopped almonds).

Who lives in Rio de Janeiro must visit this restaurant, and if you are not from Rio, the next time you visit the wonderful city be sure to savor the delights of “Aprazível”.

My birthday in New York

Leave a reply

Hi girls! Who follows me on Instagram (inesjunqueira) knows that my birthday was yesterday. I will not tell you how old I am – I’ll give you a tip: NEVER ask a woman how old she is: it is not elegant. lol!

I’m spending some days here in NY with my husbando to enjoy the city and to do some shopping.

All day I spend beside my husband is a special day and yesterday on my birthday could not be otherwise: it was AMAZING!

We had lunch at an Italian restaurant that I love, Vapiano. I am going to do a post about it later here on the blog.

In the afternoon we walk through beautiful places, we went to Central Park and Soho, a delicious afternoon with my love.

In the evening he gave me many gifts, and I must say that my husband knows me like no other: he gave me the most amazing gifts that a woman could want, if you follow me on Instagram (inesjunqueira) you know what I’m talking about.

At night he took me to dinner at a Thai restaurant, the Spice.

I love Thai food! Of course to drink it could not miss the Cosmopolitan, my favorite cocktail. Oh, for those who do not know, this cocktail was created here in NY. If you want to know how to do one click HERE.

Travel Tips – Berlin

Leave a reply

Hello! My travel tips this time are about a German city that is very special to me: Berlin, oh how I love this city.

I will tell in advance that the post will be long, but still I will not be able to recommend everything that I would like to recommend.

So here we go:

Brandenburg Gate

It is the main symbol of Berlin. When Germany was divided, after the Second World War, the gate was the only passage between the two Germanys.

After the fall of the Berlin Wall, it became a symbol of the prosperity and the unification of Germany.

1 Dicas de Viagem Berlim Portal de Brandemburgo Travel Tips   Berlin

Berliner Dom / Cathedral of Berlin

Located on the Museum Island, close to Alexanderplatz and in front of the Royal Palace in Berlin, it is the largest Protestant church in the city.

2 Dicas de Viagem Berlim Catedral de Berlim Berliner Dom Travel Tips   Berlin

Altes Museum

Also located on Museum Island, it is the largest and most important museum in the world in the art of ancient Greece, Rome and Etruscan.

Do not miss it, is well worth seeing.

3 Dicas de Viagem Berlim Altes Museum Travel Tips   Berlin

Reischstag – German Parliament

It is the building where the German Federal Parliament (Bunderstag) works. It is possible to visit the interior of the building for free, but you should book the visit through the internet on the site http://www.bundestag.de.

4 Dicas de Viagem Berlim Reichstag Predio do Parlamento Alemao Travel Tips   Berlin

Holocaust Memorial

Also known as Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, is a memorial to Jewish victims of the Holocaust.

It is an impressive monument.

5 Dicas de Viagem Berlim Memorial do Holocausto Travel Tips   Berlin

Neptune Fountain

It is gorgeous, tourists usually throw coins inside of it believing that their wishes will come true.

6 Dicas de Viagem Berlim Fonte de Netuno Travel Tips   Berlin

Fernsehturm – TV Tower

Located in Alexanderplatz, if you go to Berlin you should to take the elevator to go up the tower … worth every euro paid!

First because from there you will have a fantastic panoramic view of the city, and second because have lunch at a revolving restaurant in the center of the sphere is AMAZING (if you’re interested in lunch or dinner in the restaurant make a reservation)!

7 Dicas de Viagem Berlim Fernsehturm e a vista da Torre de TV Travel Tips   Berlin

East Side Gallery

It is an international memorial for freedom, an outdoor art gallery that includes paintings made by artists from around the world on the remains of the Berlin Wall.

8 Dicas de Viagem Berlim East Side Gallery Travel Tips   Berlin

Plate in the center of Babelplatz

In which it is written: “Where they burn books, they ultimately burn people” – Heinrich Heine

9 Dicas de Viagem Berlim Famosa placa no centro da Babelplatz Travel Tips   Berlin

Now understand why this phrase:

Memorial to the Nazis books burning

This glass plate also in the center of Babelplatz is discreet but has great significance.

10 Dicas de Viagem Berlim Memorial aos Livros queimados pelos Nazistas Travel Tips   Berlin

When looking through the glass you see several empty bookshelves, symbolizing the absence of more than 20,000 books burned across Germany, these books have been considered banned publications by the Hitler doctrine.

Restaurant Transit

This restaurant became one of my passions in Berlin, I went there several times.

This is an Asian restaurant that features the cuisine from southeast Asia, and the best: you can try everything because you can order small portions at a very reasonable price.

There you will also find a variety of exotic beers.

You can opt for a table inside the restaurant or on the terrace.

CLICK HERE and see the site of the restaurant.

Berghein – Panorama Bar

What is this place? FANTASTIC!

It is a must-see, but enter this club does not depend only on you.

In Berlin it is common to find a bouncer at the  door of the clubs who determine who enters and who does not enter, and the most curious is that there not is a specific criterion. So it’s always good to have a second option in mind, in case you’re not permitted to enter.

The Berghein/Panorama Bar is a club located in an abandoned factory, there are five floors and in each floor you will find many different environments.

12 Dicas de Viagem Berlim Berghein Panorama Bar Travel Tips   Berlin

It is no allowed to enter with cell phones and cameras and other electronic equipment as you may find celebrities like Paris Hilton and Lady Gaga and others who did not want to be bothered, there are also a lot of crazy people and bizarre things going.

As I said earlier in the post, I gave you several tips, but I still have so many to give, maybe I can do another post … someday.

Kisses!
