Muqueca is located on the strip of Cambridge St., where I was told, lots of hip restaurants to eat. Muqueca is also well known by many MIT and Harvard students as the place to order their authentic traditional caipirinha (Brazilian hillbilly drink). It is a small place and surprisingly, not many locals know about. A hidden gem for sure, but…More
Best Brasilian food outside of Brazil. The moqueca’s, feijoada and caiprnihas are as authentic as you can find. The deserts were to-die-for and the expresso’s put Starbucks to shame. You really need to go here if you want to feel like you are dining in Sao Paulo or Rio.

Definitively the authentic Brazilian experience for seafood! Wonderful food and the owner is very friendly! Some staff are great! It is not a place to eat in a rush, so go when you have time to appreciate the time it takes to prepare great food!

Four of us went for an early dinner and the place was half full when we arrived. It didn’t take long to fill…More
If you love Brazilian food, this is your place in the Boston area! I am not such a fan of Brazilian food, but still enjoyed our visits here. The offerings were very similar to what I had traveling in Brazil. My favorites are the fresh juices available, which I have not found many other places, although the caipirinhas are also…More
A friendly welcome preceded an interesting and very pleasant meal. Two senior adults and a five year old boy all were pleased by the meal and service. The adults had the national dish of Brazil, the five year old was satisfied with his steak tips. We tried their nonalcoholic drinks, fruit based and again each was able to find something…More
