Ready for a taste of the Amazon? Chef Ana Luiza Trajano floats the finest ingredients of the jungle river to your table. Start your adventure by ordering the lovely strawberry and caju caipirinha, artfully decorated with the head of the caju fruit (the unfamiliar, inedible cover of the cashew nut).
The mini acarajé appetiser is a treat in which you assemble shrimp, avocado, pumpkin and the delicious hot sauce and onion vinaigrette into a brilliant, self-made recreation of the classic Bahian sandwich. For a main course, try the abadejo grelhado com crosta de baru (grilled haddock with a crust of Brazilian baru nut), or the grilled pirarucu – the largest freshwater fish in the world. Finish off with a tasting of the plum or banana cachaça – the sugar-cane tipple here reaches the level of a fine cognac. Reservations are recommended.
