Thanks to Guilherme ( for taking us around Brazil.

SALVADOR, BAHIA – Before ever going to Brazil, Salvador was one of the top cities I wanted to visit – and finally this is the time. In this all out ultimate street food tour of Salvador we’ll focus especially on Afro-Brazilian food and culture, the heart of Salvador, Bahia. The people were amazing, the food was delicious. #Salvador #BrazilianFood #Acarajé #streetfood

Sao Joaquim Market – To begin this street food tour we started in the morning at Sao Joaquim Market, one of the main fruits and vegetables market, with restaurant and food as well. One thing you’ll see all over the market, different from other parts of Brazil is dendê oil, the orange palm oil originally from West Africa.

Recanto Da Lucia – At the market we ate breakfast at Recanto Da Lucia, a small local Brazilian food stall serving amazing dishes like feijoada and pirão. Total price – 80 BRL (.61)

Dona Susana – Next up on this Afro-Brazilian food tour of Salvador, we drover to Dona Susana, a restaurant under the highway, with a million dollar view. The main dish to eat in Bahia is Moqueca Bahiana, a stew of fish or seafood in palm oil and coconut milk. Her’s was outstanding as was the ensopado de camarão and her version of pirão. One of the most stunning locations so far in Brazil. Total price – 87 BRL (.41)

Pelourinho – This is the center of the historic city of Salvador, with a distinct Portuguese style and influence. If you look around, you might think you’re in Portugal.

Capoeira – Pelourinho is a center of art and culture and I had a chance to learn about Capoeira, an Afro-Brazilian martial art, but a dance at the same time. It’s amazing to watch and they even volunteered me to stand as they came dangerously close to kicking me!

Elevador Lacerda – In Pelourinho you’ll also find the Elevador Lacerda, which takes you from lover Salvador to the upper part of Salvador.
Price – .15 BRL (.03) per person

Mercado Modelo – One of the main central old city markets in Salvador, Bahia is Mercado Modelo, and while most of the market is pretty touristy, Jacibar on the outside serves up delicious local dishes. We ordered Xinxin de Galinha, Bobó de camarão, and Caruru. It was an incredible meal. Total price – 180 BRL (.37)

Tambores e Cores – Samba beats represent Salvador, Bahia, and the thundering drums are a must see when you’re in Bahia, Brazil.

Boteco Di Janela – In the evening we went to Boteco Di Janela, a bar and restaurant, friendly owners, and delicious seafood. We ate sarapatel – a blood stew, and sururu – small local mussels.

Acarajé da Ivone – If there’s one Brazilian street food snack you have to eat in Salvadar, it’s Acarajé, a life-changing bun of blackeyed peas deep fried in palm oil and stuffed with vatapa, caruru, shrimp, and salad. It’s is unbelievable and the owners at Acarajé da Ivone were equally as friendly and hospitable. I also had an Abara, the same thing except the black eyed pea fritter is steamed instead of fried. Price – 8 BRL (.06) per

Salvador, Bahia, in Brazil, exceeded my expectations – the food and people were outstanding and made it a city and destination I will never forget. What a stunning combination of natural beauty, food, and hospitality.

  1. Thank you for watching this entire Brazil food and travel series! If you haven’t watched all the videos yet, here’s the full playlist:

    Before visiting Brazil, what I knew was Football, Amazon Rainforest, and Brazilian BBQ.

    This trip was a massive eye-opener and learning experience.

    From feijoada in the favelas of Rio, to pequi in Goiás, to feijão tropeiro in Belo Horizonte, to açaí, tacacá, and jambu in Belém, to moqueca and acarajé in Salvador.

    Honestly, not everything was easy and smooth in Brazil: traveling, filming while walking around with camera gear, and keeping safe. But for all the risk, the people we met along the way were some of the most warm, hospitable, and diverse, of anywhere.

    A massive thank you to Guilherme and Rafa from Rio4Fun – this trip wouldn’t have been possible without them:

    And thank you again for watching and for your incredible support!

    Wow, Brazilians are the best people on this planet. Ranking number 1. Kindness, happiness, generosity. It's amazing to me.

  4. Renan Capra da Rocha

    Such a diverse food has Brazil, healthy and really tasty, if you go to south it has a big european influence, mostly, Italians, Portuguese , Germans Spanish, brazil's north is very influenced by africans, it's a huge country with different cultures.

  6. Hello Mark Wiens! I enjoy your channel, however, whenever you all identify Blacks/Negros, why do it have to be "slaves from Africa" and not whenever the Africans came over or Blacks came over. Samething was said on Best food channel… For anyone to dislike or hate on someone or ethnic group that's done nothing to you, shows weakness. My apologies, however, I have come to noticed it . I know one thing, You are nowhere near of being a racist. But could you please understand what I am saying. Thanks

  7. There are definitely similar ingredients like the west African dishes🤩🤩
