Bahia State, the city of Salvador, Brazil

We did our best to pinpoint the spot where people cannot imagine their menu without acarajé - masterpiece brought to Brazil from Africa. This appetizing "burger" is scones made from peeled black-eyed peas, stuffed with lettuce, cashew paste, tomatoes, garlic and, of course, seafood.

The cooks are distinguished by calico dresses, necklaces and scarves. If you study their family tree, it turns out that they are the descendants of slaves from the Black continent, so to cooking of this dish is bred in their bone.
