Ok, this restaurant deserves some recognition! There are many restaurants along the Passarela da Álcool in Pôrto Seguro. Tia Nenzinha was reccomended by some friends and it was well worth the visit. They have what is called "Moqueca de Peize com Camarão" which comes with a traditional salad, rice and Pirão. This is a fish dish that is cooked in a clay pot in a delicious broth made from coconut milk and fish broth, along with other local seasonings native to Bahia. The Pirão is a type of gravy made from the fish broth and thickened with Mandioca flour. In The USA Mandioca is known as Yuca. I was in Pôrto Seguro for 5 days, and me and my beautiful Brazilian girlfriend ate at Tia Nenzinha 3 times! We tried other places, but always returned there for more fish.
The service was outstanding and they made us feel right at home. If you visit Pôrto Seguro you MUST stop in and try the food at "Tia Nenzinha!" :o)))
thou' with a japanese name, because of the owner name, they do not serve jap. food. of course all over town a lot of international cuisine is served, like , italian , israelite, and yes, portuguese.this one serves bahia cuisine and as i pointed yu already , that's what kept my memories from this wonderfull touristic place.
Having a guide, right from the start, he will point to you this restaurant,
