Bahian food is as fun to pronounce as it is to eat. There are stews like: Bobó, xím xím, moqueca and vatapá. I tried everything. What I kept going back for more of was xím xím, a coconut and gingery stew made with meat or fish. I would go to a restaurant above the Mercado Modelo down by the port to get it. I sat and watched the scene in the harbor.
