Muqueca is located on the strip of Cambridge St., where I was told, lots of hip restaurants to eat. Muqueca is also well known by many MIT and Harvard students as the place to order their authentic traditional caipirinha (Brazilian hillbilly drink). It is a small place and surprisingly, not many locals know about. A hidden gem for sure, but once you try them, you will have to come back and try more!!
Of the dishes that we tried, I suggest ordering their side of plantains. Their Feijoada ComPleta is a Brazilian National Dish. It comes with Black beans stew with fresh & dried meat, pork, sausage & bacon, and served with collard greens, fried plantain, farofa & orange. It was mouth watering and so good and cooked in a clay pot. For dessert, their chocolate flan was good but super rich, so if you don't like it super sweet, I suggest their tapioca coconut dessert instead .
What surprised me the most, I requested a cup of coffee after a nice meal, and the our nice waitress made me an awesome Brazilian espresso. What a treat! We will definitely come back when we are in the area.
Until then, Cheers! ~ :p
