On the way to Pelourinho is the restaurant - Senac school. It specializes in Bahian food, is open daily and offers 2 types of menus: Food a la carte or buffet. The difference is 10 reales and both options are tasty but the buffet offers a big variety of fish and meat to choose from. Among them is the specialty of the region: Muqueca fish.
Before going to Salvador, I read some blogs to see comments from other tourists ... and I saw a lot of good reviews about the Cira Acaraj, so of course, I had to try! I'm not a specialist, but it is really nice, crispy and delicious! You can order it with or without shrimp, or pepper ... Recommended
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.
Delicious food in Northeast Brazil. I tried the shrimp moqueca (stew with shrimp, coconut milk, cilantro, onion, tomato and lemon juice), and caldinho of sururu (soup with mussels), two great classics of Bahian cuisine, and they were delicious. Another dish is the beef do sol (sun dried meat, like a little dry and tough steaks). The service is fast, prices not too expensive, and high quality food. Highly recommended.
