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.
