Set up by an ex-bullfighter and his chef wife, Don Curro has been running for over 50 years. The paella, made in the Valencian style, packed with prawns, squid and thick strips of red pepper – has become the restaurant’s signature dish, and still draws a faithful crowd at weekends.

Moqueca at Badejo

Moqueca fish stew is one of Brazil’s finest culinary moments.In Bahia, they make it with palm oil (dendê) and coconut milk. At Badejo, try the lighter ‘capixaba’ version from Espírito Santo with badejo (sea-bass), prawns, tomatoes and olive oil, stained red with urucum seeds.
