One of the original and best bar/restaurants located in the strip of laid-back hangouts known as Baixa Botafogo, Coisas do Interior offers good service, great food, excellent beers and very fair prices. The décor is simple and the menu similarly unpretentious, but the well-prepared versions of Brazilian staples keep locals coming back for more. Among the stars of the menu are the pizzas, which are made on a base of aipim (yucca) instead of pastry. The result is surprisingly tasty, and the version with sun-dried beef and soft cheese is delicious. The beer list is more extensive than many of the neighboring bars, and the Therezopolis Gold, which hails from the mountain region of Rio de Janeiro state, is highly recommended. The pavement tables and chairs are much sought after on warm evenings.
