Casa de Taipa information
What is probably Brazil's most famous tapiocaria flips the script on a traditionally R$4 street food and turns it into a gourmet treat fit for foodies. Droves of visitors and locals alike swarm this colorful and festive place for lightly pan-grilled tapioca 'pancakes' stuffed with sweet and savory goodies (vegetables, cheeses, grilled salted meats, prawns – even a moqueca version).
Save room for the ridiculous Mil Folhas, a stacked-high tapioca layer cake of doce de leite (creamy milk-and-sugar concoction), caramelized bananas, grated coconut and crushed cashews. Get there early to avoid long waitlists.
