I’m going to spend the next few weeks eating my way through the extensive menu. I was surprised by how deep and varied it is.
I started with what’s described as a simple Fried Fish appetizer, that was a minimalist understatement. What I got was a whole crosscut of a sturdy, lightly fried fish decorated and seasoned with a jubilee of diced vegetables, and other colorful treats. With a side of vegetables, it can stand in as it’s own main course!
For my main plate, I picked the Malang Banana da terra frita Peixe frito com Molho acebolado I have no idea how that translates, however it’s a seared portion of a dense white fish, smothered in onions, red peppers, and green peppers. Buffeted with pan-fried bananas that were firm and fresh it left me full, but not stuffed.
Since I had no idea the food would be so good I would have to write about it, I was halfway done with my meal before I realized I should take a picture. That’s why I used one from their website. Don’t worry, mine looked exactly like the one in the photo!
I feel the need to stress that when I say that it’s fried food I need to make it clear that I don’t mean the typical Western, salty, high blood pressure inducing way. They allow the freshness and flavor of the foods and ingredients stand on their own.
