In the Amazonian state of Pará, people order their Tacacá late in the afternoon from their favorite street vendor. In Rio, you don't have to wait until the sun is setting. The fragrant soup of manioc paste, lip-numbing jambu (a Brazilian vegetable) leaves, and fresh and dried shrimp isn't for everyone. But then again, neither is the Amazon. This simple lunch counter also savory bowls of açai , which is how folks in the Amazon eat it – and quite different from the sweet juice versions served everywhere else in Rio.
