Let me introduce myself.
I’m Rodrigo Schmiegelow, an advertiser specializing in Digital Marketing, today I live as a Digital Nomad (what is it), in other words, that I have geographic freedom and can work from anywhere in the world.
I started a trip around the world to get to know places, cultures and regional cuisines and I will bring great surprises from these experiences.Follow the Project O Mundo em Lanches (The world in sandwiches) blog on Instagram, follow all the news and this new journey with the rescue of the motorcycle.
On my visit to Lençóis Maranhenses (Sheets of Maranhão), I stayed two nights at Atins and there I could try this delicious Moqueca de Peixe do Maranhão (fish stew)
As you know, one of the main reasons I travel is to get to know cultures and cuisines, but as I’m usually alone, sometimes it’s difficult to taste some dishes because I don’t find an individual option.
In this case, as it was one of the dishes I most wanted to try on this trip, I ordered it alone at a street kiosk: Atins Cabana Maria Restaurante, in front of the beach
It is well-served, the delicious Fish Stew was succulent and tasty, to enjoy the main dish better, I left the rice aside.
And what is the Delicious Fish Stew (Moqueca) from Maranhão
It is between the conventional fish stew from Bahia and Capixaba (Fish Stew from Espirito Santo), both from different states of Brazil, with typical ingredients from all fish stew: lemon, onion, tomato, shrimp (sometimes), fish fillet and the, the big difference between the states, eggs!
