I had just arrived in Foz do Iguazo, and wanted a quick, light meal before an early rise the next day. I was shown the restaurant across the road from my hotel, and was lucky that it turned out to be a very pleasant and interesting place to eat. The walls are mostly red, and covered with paintings and hangings. I had not heard of the Moqueca before, but it looked so interesting on the menu that I declined the buffet that most other diners (all Brazilians) were choosing, and opted for the shark with shrimp Moqueca, cooked with coconut milk and ' a special seasoning in dende oil', which is made from the kernel from the palm fruit and is red orange in colour with a nutty flavour. The Moqueca arrived in the terracotta dish it was cooked in, and was probably the most interesting fish stew I have ever eaten. Washed down with a large 'Original' beer, the bill came to 112 Real, with 10% service. A lucky find for me, and an restaurant I would recommend seeking out for others.
