The best thing I ate this week
Tofu Mokekka Casa Brazil.. After starting Yuka Fry and Paode Keijo as an appetizer, I ordered tofu mokekka (mo-KEH-kah) as a main dish. Tofu Mokekka is a plain tofu made by boiling peppers, tomatoes, coriander and onions in coconut milk. Serve with white rice and farofa. The presentation was really good and the taste was delicious.
Creamy coconut milk was just right for boiling tofu, and its greasy richness covered my tongue, deepened by the spices and texture of the vegetables. Since tofu is not fried food, it absorbs all milk and seasonings and is rich in flavor. I usually think peppers add nothing to the dish, but these added a layer of lightness to the density of the milk. Coriander also gave the dish a delicate bite. White rice was well seasoned, tender and the perfect medium for pouring golden coconut milk. -Staff writer, Dani Janae
