A hidden oasis in the middle of the busy street of Visconde de Pirajá in the heart of Ipanema, the restaurant Market Ipanema invites the foodies to enjoy its healthy and tasty kitchen.
Fresh ingredients, novel combinations, and cooked-to-perfection meat and fish, the menu fills the healthy-but-tasty niche that Rio’s restaurants seem so often to miss out.
The menu is based on daily fresh ingredients and healthy items including grains, seafood, fresh fish, creative salads and sandwiches, natural juices and smoothies with recipes carefully designed by the chef Carolina Figueiredo. They have great salads like the “Couscous with grilled shrimps”, one of the top suggestions there.
