Among all the Brazilian states Pará has by far the heaviest influence of indigenous cooking. Many of these dishes will taste strange to an average European, but all are quite worth a try

  • Tucupí: A yellow gravy boiled from manioc, quite bitter, goes in many dishes.
  • Maniçoba: A distant cousin of the all-Brazilian Feijoada, easily shortlisted for worst-ever-looking-food. Mostly pork and manioc, served with rice.
  • Pato no Tucupí: duck with jambú (vegetable) cooked in tucupí.
  • Tacacá: soup with tucupí, dried shrimps and jambú.
  • Açaí: soup-like dessert made from the Açaí fruit.
  • Brazil Nuts: A nut native to the region.
