There is no other place like Zulu in Pelourinho and we are very proud of this fact.We offer vegetarian and international food as well as the typical Bahian dishes that everyone wants to try along with one of a kind cocktails and refreshing juices. We take after hip places around the world and understand the value in costumer service, comfortable ambiance and fun crowds. Come here to watch sports TV, use our wi-fi or find out interesting tourist information while enjoying a delicious Caipirinha. Sit outside and enjoy the breeze or sit inside and jam to the music, your choice!

best food I've had in brazil

Go, don't stop, don't think, just go. Best fox I've had since arriving in brazil a few months ago. You can really tell the chef puts his heart in the food and cares about what he's doing.

loved to eat at Zulus just around the corner from Galeria 13 and to hang around there. Enjoyed the Moqueca with fish or vegetables, the salads with fried shrimps or chicken, the fresh fruit juices and sitting on the street watching people passing by or chatting with other travellers or listening to the drums which are always there in Pelhourinho.

The food is good, BUT they don't take cards! and moreover there are cockroaches in the outside food court. So take this into consideration before you go.

The food is really good, I loved the Baiana salad with prawns and mango! We had dinner twice at this place. The first night the service was extremely poor, but the second evening was great.

This bar is run by an English guy who also has some hostels in the area. There were 4 of us and we all tried different things off the menu, everything was tasty, well presented and reasonably priced. Service is very good and he is also able to give you tips on things to do in the area. Nice seating... More

The staff, the location and most of all the food was indulgent but absolutely affordable. Everything is made on-premise, down to the ketchup! Always felt safe, warm and welcome. The burger is divine and more than a mouthful for the ravenous traveler! Homemade buns and perfectly grilled meat. A perfect stop for a hamburger hungry belly. Try the guacamole as... More

Great food, nicely presented, inexpensive...nice ambience, outdoor seating in small alley.. Great Moqueca... My only complaint is " No Moqueca de Ostra on the menu" .It's my most favorite of all type of Moqueca...May I make a special request for my next visit, please Paulo??

I absolutely loved the food! It's fresh, tasty and the portions are huge! Moreover the owner Paulo will actually advice you on the cheapest and affordable options (amazing han?), and if you stay in Galeria 13 you get an extra discount. The fresh juice is also something I'd recommend. I miss your food already!

We wanted a traditional mocequa and read the reviews on tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. The dish, which is traditional in Salvador, was amazing. The flavors, the consistency (thick), and the freshness of the ingredients were bar none. The owner who is English was around and talked to us, and the waitress was very nice. We also saw the chef...
