Museu da Gastronomia Baiana, Salvador

3.6
#18 of 61 in Museums in Salvador
Specialty Museum Museum
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.

  • Only in portugese. Small and not very interesting things on display. But it's free and if you're in the area; why not.
  • The Museum with the guns and swords of the Savior is sensational!

Where to stay in Salvador

The majority of accommodations in Salvador fall into three distinct groupings. If you want to be close to the best historical attractions, stay in or near the old town of Pelourinho, a few minutes from the city's west-facing coastline. This also puts you in the heart of Salvador's tourist-driven nightlife. Your second option is to stay at the southwestern tip of the city, in the neighborhood of Barram, where you'll have instant access to one of Salvador's favorite beaches. Finally, look a bit farther afield to Rio Vermelho, a quieter beachside neighborhood facing south.
