Run by a brother and sister from the northern Brazilian state of Pará,  Jiquitai is a small restaurant with an atmosphere of dining at home.  However, in the kitchen, chefs prepare dishes at a level recognized by Michelin guides as some of the best in Brazil.

Native ingredients like tucupi and cupuaçu dazzle the palette in various ways throughout the menu.  Jiquitaia offers a three-course meal (appetizer, entree, and dessert) for 46 Brazilian Real.  (A ridiculously inexpensive deal as of October 2015 when BRL$46 equals about USD$12.)

Seafood dishes like the Amazonian bicuda fish with black rice, and the Bahian moqueca with shrimp are just a few of the dishes that will live on in your memory.

Jiquitaia is a short walk from all of the gay-friendly hotels in the Consolacao neighborhood.
