Street Eats: Carioca

Food, Offers  / 

Brazilian restaurant Carioca has introduced a taste of Rio’s street food snacks to their “Bite of Brazil” menu at Boxpark Croydon. Plus, don’t miss 2-4-1 Caipirinhas Monday to Thursday.

What’s New

Keep an eye out for the new Chicken Pastel, part of the Bite of Brazil menu at Boxpark Croydon. And what is it? A pillow-shaped deep-fried wonton filled with spiced chicken and vegetables including bell peppers, sweetcorn and cabbage salada, this is the perfect snack to your Caipirinha cocktails or beers.

What to Eat

Try other Brazilian light bites, including Beef Back Rib Croquettes with homemade churrasco sauce and vegan-friendly maize Empanadas.

Then there’s the all-day brunch maize muffins – including the Copacabana, with poached egg, pulled braised beef, fried plantain, black bean stew and sour cream.

For something heartier, Feijoada is Brazil’s national dish – a rich stew of black beans slow-cooked with chorizo, pork ribs, beef and lean pork. For a taste of modern Brazil’s culture and lively personality, try The Pele –  melt-in-your-mouth cuts of Jacob’s Ladder beef ribs, with churrasco sauce, chicken, pineapple and red cabbage slaw, topped off with Gloucester cheese, bacon, crispy onion and a fried egg in a brioche bun.

Don’t Miss

On Mondays to Thursdays from 5.30pm until 7.30pm, Carioca will offer a special Happy Hour 2 for 1 deal on their renowned signature Caipirinha.

Carioca | Unit 8, Boxpark Croydon, 99 George Street, Croydon CR0 1LD | Opening hours: Monday-Thursday, 8am-10pm; Friday, 8am-11pm; Saturday, 9am-11pm; Sunday, 9am-10pm
