While this boteco recently had a bit of a makeover, there is no mistaking the traditional nature of Boteco Carioquinha. A family-run business open since 1966, the unique selling point here is the menu of more than eighty beers from around the world. The food menu is a no-nonsense Brazilian selection of classics but it is easily eclipsed by the ales. If you are struggling to choose, a well-trained team of waiters are on hand to give advice so keep in mind that imports in Brazil are always noticeably expensive, and this certainly applies to the beers here. If in doubt, order something special to start with and then follow it with the usual selection of Brazilian beers by the bottle, also available here.
