The survivor’s manual to eating the best (and safest) street food.

Rio De Janeiro

20 of 21

Risk Factor: low

The Scene: Vendors must register with the city but not all comply. It also isn’t clear how often the legal ones are inspected, but there are few reports of food-borne illnesses.

Where to Go: Ipanema Beach for juice vendors; the Santa Teresa neighborhood; Downtown’s Praça Mauá and Pedra do Sal; the Saturday farmers’ market in the Zona Sul.

What to Order: Espetinho (barbecued beef); pastel (turnovers with beef or cheese); sucos (juices).

What to Avoid: Shrimp skewers and grilled cheese on the beach—the ingredients are hard to store safely.

Guide: Dehouche gives day tours of the city’s best food stalls.
