The World's Best Cities for Street Food

Slide 18 of 26

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Known for its rodizios serving buffets and unlimited servings of meat, Rio's unique fusion of Portuguese, Brazilian and Japanese cuisines also comes in reasonable, portable sizes. Stands hawking churrasquinhos (skewered meats), pão de queijo (cheese bread) and pastels (deep-fried meat pockets that some believe were inspired by wontons) are scattered along the boardwalks of Ipanema and Copacabana beaches.
