Cambridge Street east of Inman Square remains a hotbed of fine Portuguese and Brazilian fare, but this colorful storefront stands out with its bright, homey mashup of European, South American and African influences in enormous portions at very gentle prices. Seafood dishes show off crystalline flavors in lovely preparations, notably the restaurant’s stellar moqueca completa, a bubbling stew of fish, shrimp, squid and mussels cooked and served in a traditional clay pot.
