I've seen Muqueca when passing by but never really noticed it. It doesn't demand your attention - it seems more low-key, content to do what it does, which is provide delicious food with friendly and accommodating service.
Four of us went for an early dinner and the place was half full when we arrived. It didn't take long to fill up and it was packed by the time we left. Now I know why.
We started with a beer, two sangrias and a caipirinha. They were tasty.
Given the portions we were seeing brought to other dinners we decided to pass on the appetizers and go right to entrees. This was a shame as there were some really tasty looking apps like fried yucca available with different dips, cod cakes, Brazilian patties and soup with collard greens, potato and sausage. Maybe next time.
I had the Feijoada Completa, a black bean and meat stew, served with fried plantain, orange, collard greens and farofa. It was great! There were a variety of meats in the stew including beef, dried beef, pork, sausage and bacon. But the focus was more on the beans and the stew liquid. Very hearty and tasty.
For those who don't want meat, the menu has lots and lots of seafood and quite a few vegetarian options.
The staff were great - everyone we encountered was friendly and helpful.
I recommend this place and will definitely return to further explore the menu.
