Brazil Grill

This week I found an item on a menu that was really something new. This is nice, and rare too! It was Vatapa. It is described on the web as stew, but at Brazil Grill is was served as a kind of paste (thickened with a starch). It has grilled shrimp on top of the paste, and a generous serving of fish in addition. For a side dish I received rice and beans. My server kindly warned me that this dish was not for everyone - perhaps I didn't look Brazilian? She was sweet about it, but it gave me the impression that it was only for the brave. Well, I am, and enjoyed it. The flavors were a little unusual, and the consistency was too, and I really like it. I would order it again.
