Inspirock Rating:
3.2/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web
Food lovers must stop at Museu da Gastronomia Baiana, where Brazilian culinary specialties are highlighted downstairs, and served buffet-style to hungry visitors upstairs. The museum is free, air-conditioned, and presents authentic Bahian cuisine that you can try right on the spot, freshly prepared by students attending culinary school here. This food is considered the best in the country. Pop in to try acarajé, small fritters made from black-eyed peas and onions fried in palm oil, and slathered with spicy vatapá (shrimp paste). No trip to a food museum/restaurant is complete without dessert, of course. The Bahia region is famed for its sweet tooth, so try some local candy or ice cream on a hot day.

  • Located in Pelourinho, has a small collection of pieces, but well arranged Bahian cuisine and its history. Admission is free and you'll see a collection of tools used to make Bahian delicacies.

  • Despite presenting a collection exposed small, the exhibition is very beautiful and well organized. Among the pieces that make up the collection are cutlery, dishes, pans and other cooking utensils. The photographs and texts used to contextualize the theme of the Museum make the exhibition more informative. In the Museum you can also see the "Wall of Santa Catarina" one of the walls built to enclose the city of Salvador, which was being erected under the command of Thomas de Souza, the first Governor of the lands of Brazil and Captain of the fortress and lands ". This gem in the history of the Foundation of the Citadel of Salvador is open to the public and free of charge inside the Museum of Bahian Gastronomy, which is an integral part of the complex SENAC Pelourinho.

  • Only in portugese. Small and not very interesting things on display. But it's free and if you're in the area; why not.
  • Gostaria de saber como faco pra doar uma faixa e o avental que ganhei, no concurso do programa da Ana Maria Braga o melhor pudim do Brasil. sendo finalista ao melhor pudim de laranja da Bahia.
  • Muito simples apesar de bem organizado
