The feijoada, the national dish, is a stew of pork and black beans.
In the north there is strong Indian influence, with many fruits and tubers.
On the north-east coast, the cuisine has a more African flavor: chilis, spices and the delicious dendê oil (palm oil).
The moqueca, a sort of sea-food based sauce or stew, is a specialty of Bahia.
The acarajé, composed of peeled red beans, fried in palm oil and stuffed with vatapa (dried shrimp, with chili and tomato), is sold by the Baianos on street corners.
In Minas Gerais, they prepare the comida mineira, pork and vegetable based cuisine with kuiabo (a sort of bean) and tutu (fried bean paste).
In the south, the comida gaucha is prepared with meat.
