Maracujá Brazilian Food

If a little comfort food is all you’re craving in a grey weekend in London, the Maracujá stalls are a safe bet. Francisco and Bruno started the family business in Brick Lane in 2007, selling typical Brasilian food, and now they’ve expanded their trade to the King’s Road Market and Elephant & Castle, spreading their tasty bites and nice atmosphere.

Whilst the men attend the customers, the women of the family cook the lot – from the great dishes to the to die for deserts, all with that warm homemade feeling. You’ll find a mix of coxinhas, rissoles and empanadas (£2 each), with good portions. Or a bunch of pães de queijo (cheese rolls, 3 for £2) is ideal for those who just want a quick bite, plus the classic cans of Guaraná Antarctica (£1.20). But there’s also a whole meal if you wish – the feijoada and the picanha sandwich prove to be the best-selling option. For sweet teeth, the passion fruit mousse and the caramel flan (£2 each) are options, although the brigadeiro (chocolate fudge, 6 for £3) will surely lure the chocoholics. If keeping tabs on your sugar consumption is more your cup of tea, the new addition to their menu is açaí, a sorbet made with the fruit from the Amazon, full of antioxidants that provide a variety of health benefits (£4.50-£5.50). And for those who can’t wait until the weekend, or want to bring some Brasilian taste to their events, Maracujá also accepts orders!
