If you are in São Paulo and would like to try, in my opinion, one of the tasty food from Bahia, you need to go to Tabuleiro do Acarajé.
Is a humble place with a kindly customer care. The attendance are made by the owners Fátima and Miri. It is a friendly and welcome place and there is no way to don’t love this place.
How can you see in the picture it is a small place, so the tables are in the sidewalk.
Acarajé is a kind of Hotdog for the people from Brahia a state of Brazil.
A dish made from peeled black-eyed peas formed into a ball and then deep-fried in dendê (palm oil). It is served split in half and stuffed with vatapá (shrimp, coconut milk, finely ground peanuts and palm oil mashed creating a creamy paste) and caruru (okra, onion, shrimp, palm oil and toasted nuts (peanuts and/or cashews)), a salad made out of green and red tomatoes, fried shrimps and homemade hot pepper sauce.
