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.
