Rehoboth Beach Eats! Lula Brazil, Restaurant, Bar, Outdoor Dining, Dancing, Downtown Rehoboth Beach, Delaware Beaches


Temperatures are cool but definitely it feels like spring is in the air.  The evenings are perfect to enjoy a Moqueca.  Say what?  Okay, look at the entree….it is served at Lula Brazil located at 234 Rehoboth Avenue, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.  Tel. 302-212-2755.


The Moqueca is a seafood stew.  It is made with a fragrant broth of coconut milk, dende oil, which is Palm Oil, mixed peppers and onions served with rice.  My table enjoyed it with mixed seafood; fish, shrimp, mussels, clams and calamari.  If you like soups and stews, this one is a winner.


Meg Hudson is the owner of Lula Brazil, which is going into its second year.  The restaurant has been received well by locals and visitors.  I was talking to Meg and she said that she had arrived at Fortaleza many years ago and fell in love with this beautiful area, which is one of Brazil’s largest cities.  Fortaleza attracts tourists from other parts of Brazil and also from overseas.  The reason is its beaches and the party atmosphere.  It has rolling dunes and quaint fishing villages, as well.  She never forgot it.  Life continued and almost two years ago, she opened Lula Brazil, decorated with the bright colors of Brazil.


Lula Brazil is bigger than you think.  It has a large bar area in the back and also it has outdoor dining, as well.  At night dancing put on your dancing shoes because this place gets hot hot.  Summer 2016 promises to be a very good year for Lula Brazil.  At the present time they are open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, from 5 p.m. until 1 a.m.  Friday, from 4 p.m. until 1 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 2 p.m. until 1 a.m.  Reservations are accepted, but you may also walk in.

The night I visited Lula Brazil, Carlos was in the kitchen and Jack was our server.  A few drinks to start and for me a Shrimp Ceviche.  I love when you can taste the lime in the ceviche.


Fried Yucca with grilled sausage.  The vinaigrette veggies gave a kick to the sausage and yucca.  The farofa or yucca flour is used as a condiment.  This one served was perfectly cooked and not greasy at all.


The Moquequinho de Caranguejo or Crab Soup had a different twist to the more traditional crab soup.  It had coconut milk.


Grilled Fish with Black Beans & Rice, farofa (yucca flour) for condiment, as well and grilled veggies.


A Mixed Grill with Picanha, Sausage and Shrimp.  Picanha is a cut of beef popular in Brazail.  In the U.S. you can find it as top sirloin cap.


For dessert a custard is a favorite of mine.  It was velvety smooth and the surprise of coconut inside.

Rehoboth Beach Eats!! Lula Brazil, Restaurant, Brazilian Inspired Cuisine, Review, Downtown Rehoboth Beach, Delaware Beaches, Southern Delaware

Five friends decided to celebrate a birthday on Monday, 9/29.  Where to go was the question.  We decided to visit for the first time Lula Brazil.  This restaurant is one of the newest additions to the culinary trail at the Delaware Beaches.  As you all know, Rehoboth Beach is known for its diverse restaurants.  Our residents and visitors are very particular about their foods.  Some are foodies at heart, others pretend to be….they all want to have a good time, though.


Lula Brazil is located at 234 Rehoboth Avenue, Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971.  Tel. 302-212-2755.  Website? They take reservations!

Guilty!!  We were so loud.  Thank God it was Monday night and the restaurant was quiet….not at our table.  Look at us here!!  We are the friends that dine…any time, anywhere, we are game for a good meal…and wine.


Brazilian cuisine is influenced by various cultures.  This restaurant is focused on coastal Brazil.  They do have the traditional Feijoada or stew with black beans and the Moqueca, which is a seafood stew, among other traditional dishes.

Some of us started with a house salad.  The dressing was particularly good, made with passion fruit.  You are not going to see the dressing on the photo. It was light but definitely very good.


The menu is written in Portuguese with the English translation.

Brazilian Crab Cakes with salad and passion fruit remoulade was ordered as an appetizer.


The Shrimp Ceviche was very good with jicama salad.  Lime juice a predominant flavor.


“Linguine”, little neck clams in a garlic wine sauce….dinner.


A special of the evening was the Rib Eye.  One of us wanted it.  The Cabi Girl.


The salmon was ordered but the chef came out to tell us they did not have enough so they were also making a special dish, adding flounder…with a plantain puree which was very good.


The fish stuffed with crab was flounder, poached in a fragrant coconut veggie sauce.


We really had had enough food, so dessert was not necessary.  But, since they knew we had a birthday celebration, an order of Brigadeiro arrived.  These sweet balls or bonbons are made with condensed milk, and very similar to truffles, but a different consistency.  They are popular in Brazil and they get their name after a Brigadier that helped stop a communist coup in Rio.


Our service was excellent.  We had their undivided attention…..look for some salsa classes…might be coming soon to Lula Brazil.

Have a great day!!
