Some beautiful color you cannot get enough outside you and your here. And. Add a little bit of the tapioca which is I think it is a product of the cassava as well but that's very very light like popcorn.

Some of the more of the fried fish there's, some cassava and shrimp there's, some more vegetables as well let's try some of this one is shrimp you can see if you look really closely you can see these little baby tiny shrimp dried with, some of the cassava powder.

Come back right away absolutely. Welcome, back already, I wanna I wanna just stay here. There's. Still head med doing a little dance. From. Here we're walking back to the car and there's, a couple of afternoon, and evening, street foods from, the limb that we've got to try. It's. About 4:00 p.m. just after 4:00 p.m. in the afternoon this, is the, time when, people in Belem eat a dish called pakka and this is one of the dishes I was most looking forward to eating coming. Here. My name is diva, diva. Dumbu. That's, dad. She. Not only has the takaka but she has like some, full. Dishes, as well but mainly we came here to eat the knockout which she's gonna prepare right now I'm ordering a takaka and Amitabha, I love the name sir but you can get so confused. Hahahaha. I. Oh man. This is a. Gorgeous. Gorgeous. Dish. One, of the most beautiful, dishes I've seen in a very very long time but this is one of the main dishes of Parra the, main. Soup, broth, is made from, cuckoo pea which we've had already today many times it is made. From fermented manioc. So it has a kind of vinegary sour taste to it but they take some of that soup they put it into the gourds always served in a gourd then she takes some of the manioc, gum like very sticky very pasty that's the thickener, she, adds that to, your soup, so that's gonna make it harder, thicker, richer. Then, she adds in a bunch of the Jumbo leaves you know that jumbo flour that we were eating and we already had jumbo today it's a, numbing leaf, flower. Plant, amazing. And. Adds that in and then, adds in some chili usually just on the chili juice. But we got some of the floating. Chilies, to make it extra spicy then some of the salted shrimp and then fills, your bowl with the. Soups. When people just kind of drink it and you get this little stick fork to eat the Jumbo, leaves mix. That around oh man, you can smell the chilies you can smell the sourness I think I'm just gonna I see lots of people just drinking, the soup first I'll try the soup first just drink it. Oh. Unbelievable. It has this sour vinegary, taste immediately. On my first parsnip. I can, feel though just a slight numbing it's not like a huge numbing sensation but you can feel it your tongue tingle and then the chilies because she added and all of that chili juice and the chilies floating oh wow, that's just soothing.
And Stunning and you can feel like the thickness how are the the. Gum of the tapioca is sort of thickened already. Hmm. Absolutely. Stunning they. Have a texture, similar to spinach a little. Tougher, a little, more not quite as slimy oh yeah oh yeah some of the gumminess is still in there can you see that. That's. Some of the gumminess I'm, gonna add some of these chilies try some that gumminess with a maybe, with a shrimp now dude that. That's. A very salty shrimp because it is a salted preserved shrimp that contrasts, the sour soup fish giggling soup the the, salty shrimp the chilies. I think I'm just a little hook with this dish okay let's try the ah no let's try that too ha. Ha. Ha kind of like a thick, starchy, looking, paste I've never had it before but she topped it with shrimp more of the Jumbo leaves rice, and then we got the deluxe version I think with crab claws I'll. Just try some of the the. Vltava first. While. That. Is like a very sticky. Extremely. Smooth texture, but the flavor is amazing like it's, like gummy, it's. Really sticky not. Quite as thick and sticky as peanut butter but. Like a very smooth peanut butter, almost. Okay, crab. Claw oh. The. Most has a bacon taste -. Mm-hmm. If. You were to eat this whole plate it, would definitely fill, you up. Hello. Don't, touch that with some other. This. Is a stunning, stunning. Dish. Cheers. Oh man, my mouth is on fire she added in so, many chilies to the. Special, bowl of taka my mouth is numb. For, sure one of my favorite dishes in Brazil so far I'm. Just sweating, with happiness right now a guava mia this top of our team are something. Like that agua comida esta money. The. Best crazy, delicious. It's a temper dish if I lived here there's no doubt I would be in the habit of eating at every single afternoon, there's, no way I could not again. An amazing. Amazing, lady, diva. Come, to see her when you come to, bail em over. To God, that. Was spectacular. Wow, what's the next place we're going Rosario, Rosario, we are going to eat Laketown which is like pork and a, type of hot dog there, has ground, beef. You can choose the French bread or the hotdog breath it's one of the most well known street food stalls in the city of Rosario they, serve a number two main things one is like a hotdog with ground beef coffee, one, is slices. Of the pork leg that's a massive, pork, leg they, fry it up they put it in a bun they seasoned it this, is beautiful there's tables along the sidewalk, and chairs plastic, chairs, it.
Smells So good and this is gonna be the final thing that we eat on this tour today they've been serving this for 47. Years. What's. Amazing about food like this about a street food like this is acting every, single culture around the world has some formation, of this meat, stuffed, into a bun with, some kind of mayonnaise e sauces. To go with it. Maybe. Method economists anything, thank you I hope. Efficient, as you avoid. This. Type, of food this type of combination this. Type of construction, is, just it's universal. It crosses, all cultural, boundaries, it can be enjoyed by everyone if, they're beautiful just tucked into a handheld bun just take a look on the inside here that's like a coleslaw all, all of that pork. Anything. A wall. That. Is quality. You can taste the lemon juice on there the lime juice the cole slaw almost like just kind of melts into it now we just need to try some of that sauce. It's. Seriously incredible, it's. So like. Like. Not, complex tasting but just perfect like just as perfect as needs to be this. Sauce is delicious as, well a little bit spicy you taste the sourness of the chilies like though. I'm. Just guessing tofu beef, since. This is a too foofy city filled, with hot dog and full I loved the movie actually sliced the hotdog maybe. Into threes and then, he wiped he swiped in some butter did. You think. There'd. Be swiped, in a bunch of butter and, then fried it on a hot foot and and ground beef right and then the ground beef came on like as a toffee the ground beef yeah what a move what a genius hot dog move unless she's get a look at that ground beef in there just yeah. That is absolutely. Awesome I'm, just gonna go ahead and apply. That, is amazing. Oh the, hotdogs the ground beef has, kind of a spicy. Human, taste the, tomatoes, the onions the. Tukufu chili sauce you're, just gonna want the sauce they just fall out. Myself. I poke you moving, back over to that to the pork sandwich, and this tooth will be hot sauce like it doesn't seem pot at first but then your lips start burning it's actually decently spicy it. Is amazing. I. Want. To fully hydrate. It. It's really good like the hotdoggers awesome - but. The pork the roasted pork which is really the standout. One for me. Here. In a little on the liquor finger. You're. Probably gonna know, it's probably not appropriate but, I would just squeeze this into my mouth that's so good.
