Acaraje can be considered the Brazilian version of falafel. A black eyed pea fritted is deep fried in dende oil shaped like a ball. You can stuff it with vatapa - creamy paste made of bread crumbs, shrimp, coconut milk and dende - shrimp and vinagrete salad.
This food you can easly find in Salvador, Bahia and it is the most famous street food. The Baianas (women from Bahia) wear traditional clothes with a head wrap to sell it on the streets.
The state of Bahia, located in the North-East of Brazil has the most distinctive African culture in the country. From Capoeira (Afro-Brazilian martial arts dance), African derived music forms, such as samba and axe, religion (Candomble) to the cuisine with strong links to Africa, Bahia is a treasure.
Feijoada, this name stems from the word “feijao” that means beans in Portuguese. Together with smoked beef and pork meat the black bean - the key ingredient of Feijoada - gives an unique flavour to this Brazilian National Dish.
