Gula-Gula is a chain of restaurants in Rio de Janeiro where you can always count on delicious, if mildly expensive food. My favorite is the one in Leblon, on Rita Ludolf Street. The ambiance is charming, with modern furniture in a well-lit room, the service is impeccable and the food is superb. Last time I went there I had a light lunch which consisted of an apricot quiche that was simply divine!! That, however, is only an example, as the menu is quite varied, with international dishes as well as the local fare, be it meat, fish, or poultry. Brazilian inventiveness when it comes to food never ceases to amaze me. Different ingredients are mixed together in one dish, like the quiche above (who would have thought of mixing eggs and apricots?) and the concoction is fantastic!! For a good sample of Rio cuisine, go to Gula-Gula, possibly the one near Leblon beach.
