Sorriso da Dada Tips (4)

Sorriso da Dada: A gap-toothed wonder

Don't let the exterior appearance deter you from eating at Dada. Once inside, you'll find a cozy room with paintings of the proprietor herself, Dada. She is a warm looking Afro-Brazilian woman usually depicted in traditional clothing and with a bright smile accented by a charming gap between her two front teeth. Too bad I didn't meet her while I was at her restaurant. Based on the photos of famous celebrities (Hillary Clinton, for example) on the walls with her, she looks like a very friendly lady.

Favorite Dish I started with a caipirinha, the national drink of Brazil that's made with sugar, lime, ice and a sugarcane liquor called cachaca. Then, I ate a couple appetizers which filled me up just fine. The casquinha de siri (crabmeat) was really good. I also had vatapa. Yum.

Sorriso da Dadá: Dadá's Smile, must be inspired by the moqueca! :-)

Cool, colorful and funky atmosphere, Sorriso da Dada exists in an old house in the heart of Pelourinho...

There are individual little rooms that create a cozy/warm atmosphere... Tim and I decided that we were sat in the "Gringo" room- back in the very back... Cool room though, with a big mural of Dada herself with that famous smile!

The service was good enough... The menu featured traditional Bahian offerings.

Favorite Dish Let's see, Tim had chicken in a banana cream sauce... was quite nice and tasty!

And yes, I had moqueca... see my general tip for the recipe!

The portions were pretty huge, we couldn't finish them.

We drank caipirinhas of course... they were strong as heck here.

Sorriso da Dada: Dessert to die for

You didn't think I'd skip dessert, did you? I can't remember what this was called, but it was an amazing, rich chocolate cake of some kind. The cake was moist, almost wet, so it's possible that it was made without flour. The sauce on it was a warm, creamy, sugary coconut wonder. Wow. It was great!
