Galitos is a just a chicken joint, but because of its location just off Ipanema beach on Farme de Amoedo, one of the cities most vibrant (and gayest) streets, it offers some of the best people-watching spots in the city. Bag a table (they’re all outside) at about 4pm and observe the passing conga line of tourists and local hotties strutting their stuff, all very aware they are on a catwalk. As far as the food goes, it’s about grilled chicken, corn, fries and side salads; hardly haute cuisine then, but for a post-beach face-stuffing with a side of gawping, it rules the roost.
