After a hard day's swimming, surfing or sunbathing at Recreio's beautiful beach, Taco & Chilli is a great spot to recharge those batteries. One of surprisingly few Mexican restaurants in Rio de Janeiro, this informal eatery offers well-made versions of classics such as tacos, burritos and enchiladas. Those who like their food with a bit of a kick will find plenty of strong peppers on the menu, while those who aren't quite up to the challenge can request pepper-free versions. Among the most popular orders are the fajitas, which are filled with sliced meat, green and yellow peppers, tomato, cheese, sour cream and guacamole. Like many of the dishes here, this Mexican favorite is given a Brazilian twist by being served with those national staples: rice and black beans.
