Siri Mole & Cia Review

This restaurant takes its name from a soft-shell crab native to Brazil, and the signature dish here is moqueca—a Bahian stew that combines dendê oil and coconut milk with seafood. Beware, though. This dish from the northeastern state of Bahia is delicious, but it's very high in saturated fat and can have disastrous effects on the digestion to those not used to it. For your stew, you can choose from squid, lobster, fish, or, of course, siri mole crab. Another delicious dish is acaraje, for which bean-flour patties are deep fried, split in two, and filled with shrimp, an okra paste, chili, and tomato. Vegetarians can opt for a shrimp-free version. This is one of Rio's best places for seafood served Bahian style.
