Rudä: new Brazilian food restaurant in Ipanema

South America

I went to visit the newest Brazilian food restaurant in Ipanema, Rudä. It is located at number 118 on Rua Garcia D'Ávila, in a listed house from the 1930s. With influences mainly from the Northeast and Southeast regions, chef Danilo Parah brings recipes inspired by his mother and grandmother's creations, but with contemporary touches. Therefore, an affectionate gastronomy, full of memories, with sophisticated reinterpretations. This is the fourth house of the Trëma Group, which already has Mäska, Ízär and Brasserie Mimolette.

New Brazilian food restaurant in Ipanema

Rudä, which in Tupi mythology means God of Love, has a refined but welcoming atmosphere, with several different spaces on the two floors of the house, including a bar and balcony. On the menu, the starters, ideal for sharing, bring references from land and sea, such as, for example, the Trio of oysters (R$ 42), with cashew vinaigrette and green apple pickles, as well as the Pastel de feira (R$ $38), with artisanal pastrame, onion jam and mustard greens. Furthermore, I loved the Egg with okra (R$38), egg mollet with creamy polenta, okra concassé and chicken roti.

Next, among the main ones, there are options for all tastes. Those who like meat can opt for Carne de Sol (R$ 110), with cured chorizo ​​steak, cassava cooked in bottled butter and fried and Galician lemon emulsion and herb salad. On the other hand, for those who prefer seafood, the suggestion is the Shrimp with heart of palm (R$ 108) grilled shrimp, lardo, pearl rice cooked with bacon and heart of palm. Furthermore, there is also the “Bakery Chicken” (R$72), stuffed chicken, mashed potatoes with peas, green beans and chicken roti.

Finally, for dessert, the highlight is the Rudä cheese pie (R$ 36). The reinterpretation of Romeo and Juliet is made with baked cream cheese, guava, roasted strawberries, raw milk ice cream and fleur de sel. Furthermore, Brazilianness is also present on the menu, not only for drinks – with reinterpretations of classics – but also for wines, with a good variety of national options.

In fact, chef Danilo, who has spent time at houses owned by Claude Troisgros and at the starred Mirazur by chef Mauro Colagreco, in the South of France, is doing a brilliant and affectionate job! It's certainly worth checking out this new restaurant in Ipanema.
