Right there at Solar do Unhão and Gamboa
There, right next to the Museum of Modern Art of Bahia, there are two Bahian food restaurants that are worth a visit. One, within the Solar do Unhão community, and the other, within Gamboa. Both have a great moqueca, in addition to being in a place with a privileged view of the All Saints Bay. The cool thing about this experience is getting to know the residents and their stories, as well as, of course, tasting delicious food and taking beautiful pictures.
5 – Re-restaurante Dona Suzana
At the Solar do Unhão Community you will meet Dona Suzana. She is a special person, a caring character, with a big smile and many stories to tell. The moqueca is always served with the catch of the day. There is no menu. A valuable tip is to arrange with Suzana someone from the community to pick you up near MAM, so you can go together and find the restaurant quickly.
6 – Bar da Mônica
To get to Bar da Mônica, in Gamboa de Baixo, the tip is to go by boat – you can walk around the community, but believe me, the “mini” boat trip is worth a lot. Entrance is also through MAM. You must go to the rocky beach, where there is a SUP school. There you can get a boat. The restaurant is simple, it is located on a pier and has a staircase that leads to the sea. There is often a very loud sound, where residents, tourists and sailors gather. Try the lobster moqueca with shrimp and fish. Another tip is to stay until sunset, it will be worth every second!
