To begin, let me state that our recent first visit to Muqueca will be the first of many. Our servier, Nicole, was first rate--informative, courteous, and attentive. As for the food it is AMAZING!!!!
Constant Companion and I began with Lula empanada com molho de maracujá (Fried Calamari with passion fruit sauce). Nicole volunteered to bring some of Muqueca's home made hot sauce for me. A nice tomato base very similar to "Inner Beauty" sauce it was superb. The Calamari were nicely breaded and cooked perfectly.
For entrees, Constant Companion selected Bobo de camarão (Shrimp BoBó) @
$ 18.95. It was comprised of Shrimp, tomato, onion, cilantro, yucca cream & coconut milk cooked and presented in a clay pot. Accompanying the shrimp was a nice serving of white rice and a "gravy" both of which CC raved about. It should be pointed out that there was too much food for CC to finish so Nicole neatly packed what remained into three separate doggie bag containers. For the next few days CC enthusiastically spoke of her first encounter with Brazilian cooking.
I selected the Moqueca de peixe (Fish Moqueca @ $ 18.95. I have been wanting to try this dish since seeing it featured "Neighborhood Kitchens" on PBS last year. This dish is a Brazilian Style Seafood Stew made with Cilantro, Tomato & Onion, and served with Rice & Pirão. This was a remarkably enjoyable meal also cooked and served in a clay pot !!! The seafood in the stew was tender local Haddock. This was so good that I finished it all but later I was bemoaning the fact that I had no left overs. It was really that good!!!. Total bill, including 1 Caipirinha ($ 6.50) and 1 Chardonnay, including tax was $63.50.
