Tara, I found Sully's. I drove by around 7:00 PM and the bartender and waitress were having a cigarette out front. Nobody was in the place. Hey, what do you want for a Monday Night? At least I know where it is now. Will try again later.
So leaving there I made a wrong turn and saw this place:
The Tropical Cafe!!! At first I looked over and said "what is that Rita's Italian Ice doing open in the winter?" Then I saw it was a Brazilian place and it sure looked like Roadfood.
The waitress comes over and I say "English" and she says "NO". Then she asks if anyone in the place speaks English and two very nice guys come over to help me order(not much help). I'm looking at the menu:
And I point at the picture of the Muqueca. Everyone shook their head in agreement, so I ordered it. The menu describes it as, mix of fish, shrimp, coconut milk and palm oil. I didn't know what to expect, this is what I got:
The bowl on the stand was still boiling when it arrived. A delicious sauce with huge chunks of fish and whole shrimp. This was outstanding. The small bowl? I have no idea what it was, but again fantastic. The strongest flavor was cilantro. Here is my plate:
And a shot of the inside of the place (That's my two helpers)
That's Brazilian TV also.
I have been to many Brazilian steakhouses, but this was my first encounter with authentic Brazilian food. I can't wait to go back for breakfast and lunch. So far Marlborough has proven to be a first class Roadfood town.
Funny...and sad, I worked almost two years with a crew from Portugal, and all I learned were the curse words.
