A LITTLE SQUARE AT RUA DO GIZ!!!: EATING WITH STYLE
Every evening in the middle of Rua do Giz, a place where all tribes in São Luis get together...there is a bar which serves drinkings and meals, and live music.
MARCONE, my GREATEST reference in Maranhão State always loves to give me fresh news about this magnificent city called SÃO LUIS.
A place to talk...to the famous BRAZILIAN BATE PAPO!
Favorite Dish: Okay, with less than 2 dollar you can have a complete meam to help in your dinner...rice, the incredible yellow FAROFA - the manioc flavour - and STEAK with a special sauce, typical one...smashed potato and a little salad...all this paying less than a cup of coffe in Europe!
BATISÁ: BATISÁ - MORE THAN A RESTAURANT...IT IS THE OWNER!
There is no mistake...In Alcantara close to the pier, everybody knows her..she is the best advisor of all matters in the island...she is the friend, she is the wizzard, she is the great mother and she is the one who can assist you in many things you need in the island because she is popular, respected and dearest among the whole community. In the island there is a main street which leads to the Pelourinho...She lives about 200 meters from the main pier where you get in Alcantara...Her house...Well her house is the restaurant itself, and after such a hard crossing to reach the islands she welcomes you with a generous cup of fruit juice, specially lime juice! :)
Favorite Dish: Hehehehe you should try all the options..she is a master in seafood...but I am always happy even if I have to eat rice and beans! :)
BATISÁ!!!!: A HOME TO EAT IN ALCANTARA
Cannot be more local than this place can be...
Alcantara is a very historic island in Maranhão, aboslutely tropical, absolutely hot region, full of wilderness, beaches, and very interesting people...
And believe me, this woman restaurant holds the TASTE OF THE ISLAND, and she will attack your stomach with no mercy....
She lives in a house dated 1887....I can imagine how many stories these walls can tell....
In that house she has her daughters and grandchildren..In that house she has a kitchen..some nice space close to the backyard..and that is all, everything is simple and full of photographs hanging on the walls.....OK THAT IS ALL SHE NEEDS TO HAVE ONE OF THE BEST RESTAURANT I HAVE EVER BEEN IN MY LIFE!
The food is delicious...and Batisá, the owner is also A DELICIOUS PERSON
Favorite Dish: Food???? Ohhhhhh the food...First...Batisá lives in an island...tHE WORD "ISLAND" REMINDS fish....so SEA FOOD is her especiality....
There I just have a very common food....AN OMELETTE MADE OF SHRIMPS SOUCE....UMMM YUMMY!!!
Rice and Beans....very brazilian...
The result: I ATE LIKE AN ELEPHANT!!!!
