I've had the opportunity to go to this restaurant the other times I've been walking in Bahia. This restaurant has branches in Arraial D 'Ajuda and Trancoso. It's a place specialised in wooden oven cooking. It's super cheap, R $ 45.00 per kilo, and all the food is tasty and seasoned specially. There are several salads, many choices of hot dishes, and delicious snacks. Just make sure of one thing: follow the schedule, that is, as close to 12pm when it opens because by 17h, most of the special foods such as shrimp, crab, etc run out.
This restaurant is right at the entrance of the Praia do Mucug in Arraial d'Ajuda, and is run by Eunice, a local resident who knows the secret of Bahia seasonings. All in a simple and cozy restaurant, the motto is to eat homemade food made with care at economic prices (from R $ 15,00), ideal for those enjoying the beauties of the Arraial sea, and want to continue feeling like they're at home. There's no shortage of menu options; fish stews, and other delicacies, like seafood pasta.
Visiting Bahia without trying acarajé is sacrilegious, but it would be worse to miss the opportunity to meet Nara, owner of Cantinho do Acarajé, and experience one of the delicacies served at her establishment. Located just off of the Rua do Mucug, the restaurant serves acarajé and tapioca, in addition to a host of other typical dishes from Bahia like pimenta, sweet coconut, coconut water, and cachaça. Be sure to take home the cocadinhas packaged in small portions, to give to friends.
Judging by the name of the restaurant, it doesn't serve another specialty except traditional gaucho meat, and this true to Tchê Barbaridade, located in the charming Rua Mucug. The restaurant, while offering small fantasies in their dishes, also offers choices of meat and seafood dishes for 2 people, and offers an optimal quality-price ratio.
O Beco is a street behind the famous alcohol promenade Porto Seguro, where there are several restaurants and also the best gastronomic options in the city. A short walk from the bustle of the big groups of teenagers who go there, visitors can also stroll along the seashore, and enjoy good times in the restaurants Pimenta and Portinha, and enjoy the delights of Portugal de Doceria Portuguesa.
For those visiting the historical center of Porto Seguro it is almost impossible not to try the acarajé of Cris. It is next to the Church ,with all its super store decorated with the aroma that spreads throughout the Bay. Cris is very friendly, with her beautiful smile and green eyes, giving advice while preparing the best acarajé around. She invented the cod acarajé for people who are allergic to prawns and I can say that those who have tried it have loved it. I can say that wandering around Bahia, I'd rarely eaten acarajé as fresh and delicious as Cris', so I recommend it with my eyes closed.
The Pimenta Baiana is located right in front of the famous Gateway of alcohol of Porto Seguro, one of those places placed strategically so you do not have to walk far to get there and enjoy the best pizzas served the Italian way. Huge pizzas served by meters, traditionally round and tasty. The place is very busy, pub style, with plastic tables on the sidewalk bringing in many groups of travelers and families.
Miloca crepes are the most famous in the Rua do Mucug and no wonder. They have a varied menu of savory crepes bearing the names of musical rhythms like ax, forró, frevo, samba, rap, blues and salsa. Freshly prepared, and baked with delicious ingredients. Also high quality service, and good prices.
Native Beach Club, located in Praia do Mutá that borders the city of Porto Seguro and Santa Cruz Cabrália. A wonderful place with great food and delicious drinks, great service and good prices. It's worth going - just remembering the seafood makes my mouth water!
Valentino Italian Restaurant! Highly recommended for those who like lobster. We ate a kilo of lobster, with accompaniments for R $ 56.00. It was delicious, and there's a spectacular view of the port from outside the restaurant. The spaghetti with pesto sauce was delicious. The restaurant is a bit hidden, but I liked the quiet environment!
A restaurant with contemporary food in the trendy Mucuge in Arraial D'Ajuda. But I can't recommend it - the food was distinctly average, the price wasn't very economical, and the service was terrible. They frequently made mistakes, bringing things we didn't order, and we had to clarify some issues with the bill.
Walking through the village of Trancoso on the famous Quadrado, you can find this fascinating ThaiCOSO restaurant, as the name already says, combines the flavors of Thai cuisine with Bahian dishes and offers all kinds of meats, seafood, and vegetarian dishes, at affordable prices. Try the delicious dish made with lobster tail with Thai spices, rice and pineapple, with a spicy flavor. Remember that the restaurant is open from Wednesdays to Sunday, for dinner only.
This small, rustic restaurant in Mucug street is a place to meet friends at the end of the afternoon to chat and enjoy the mining cuisine, starting with the tropeirinho (tropero beans, rice, cabbage and fried eggs), which is one of the emblems of the restaurant. Its a delicious and economic place to recharge after a full day walking along the beaches of Arraial and its surroundings. Super recommended!!!
