“Contrary to how it may look, I am NOT cruising Ipanema Beach for guys while my wife works out at the gym.” – Tony Bourdain

 

Nearing the end of his final tour around the world with No Reservations,  last night Anthony Bourdain visited Rio de Janeiro to accompany his wife to her jiu jitsu battle. Tony isn’t a newbie to the ridiculously beautiful white-sand beaches of Rio and the city’s delicious cuisine. But when your wife travels such a great distance to battle it out, you gotta go!

Tony made time to explore ports of Rio that he hadn’t seen before, such as a beach that’s secluded from the crowds and a bodega in the Rio neighborhood of Santa Teresa.

And let’s not forget about the food! Tony checked out Barraca do Uruguay, located on Ipanema Beach — this was the same vendor that Tony had visited 10 years ago! Get a complete list of all the restaurants and eateries that Tony checked out in Rio in our Travel Guide.

Get Tony’s thoughts and favorite picks in his Rio Journal and watch his Rio Bourdainisms, a collection of Tony’s one-liners from this episode.
