There are days in Rio de Janeiro where one neither feels like cooking nor speaking another word of Portuguese.
How can we solve this one... well...
I just learned about Disk Cook. It's a service that provides an online delivery food service from some of Rio's best restaurants. www.diskcook.com.br I haven't tried it out yet myself but friends swear by it.
Where does the food come from? Places such as Amir, Benkei Sushi, Antiquarius, Mr. Lam, Milfrutas, Sushi Leblon, Esch Cafe, Juice Co, Giuseppe Grill, Zuka, etc. To be honest, if you are ordering takeout from some of these places you are really missing out on the eating out experience in my books.
Soon it will be too hot to cook. My solution was going to be eating fruit salad for the next few months. The plans always change, maybe instead I'll have options... ;)
