The striking seasoning, lots of pepper and incredible flavors are what define Bahian cuisine! Bahia, like all of northeastern Brazil, has an absurdly rich culture, and its gastronomy is among those that most attract attention in our country. Like Bahia, its food has electricity, it has a presence and it is difficult to forget. I have been there twice and I was delighted with the cuisine of this place.
