Thanks to Guilherme ( for taking us around Brazil. #Brazil #Amazon #AmazonFood

MANAUS, BRAZIL – During my food trip to Brazil there was no place I wanted to visit more than the Amazon Rainforest. We flew to Manaus (if you look at a map, Manaus is directly in the heart center of the Amazon). The jungle, the unique dishes and fruits, and the people made it incredible.

Exotic fruit tasting – One of the things that you have to do when you’re in Brazil, especially in the Amazon is sample all the unique and indigenous fruits of the region, some that are only available there. We started with mari-mari, an amazing long pod fruit and have inga (ice cream bean fruit) and biribá – wild sugar apple. All the fruit – 10 BRL ($2.55)

Manaus is a pretty big city, especially for being in the heart of the Amazon Rainforest. They have a big market, full of fruits, vegetables and fish. We headed straight for some tucumã, a type of palm tree fruit that’s essential in the local diet.

Jenipapo – Along the way we also tried some jenipapo, a pretty unique fruit.

Tucumã sandwiches – Sandwich shop owners better take note! Tucumã sandwiches are a true Amazonian food and they are delicious. Along with the palm fruit they were paired with cheese and fried sweet banana. It’s a perfect breakfast and way to start the day in the Amazon. Price – about 10 BRL ($2.55) per sandwich

Tambaqui fish – Tambaqui is a fish from the Amazon that’s known for having ribs – seriously almost like pork ribs. We decided to get a fish to bring to the village since we weren’t sure what they’d have al the village.

Amazon village – We didn’t really have a plan, we were just going to find a boat driver and ask him to take us to a village and see if anyone could cool. So we got a boat, and our boat driver asked if they were home and if we could invite ourselves in. We arrived completely unplanned and unannounced and it turned out to be an outstanding learning experience and fun time with an amazing family in the Amazon.

Along with the food we brought, the family mixed up about 4 different exotic drinks – some of them known in the Western world as ingredients in trendy energy drinks – but here in the Amazon of Brazil they are consumed regularly.

It was such an awesome Brazilian Amazonian food meal with the family followed by a time of drumming and dancing, football, and finally a swim in the river. It was an extraordinary day in the Amazon of Brazil.

    The problem with you is you exhibit too much of yourself rather than showing local delicacys , Please focus your cammera on foods not your face & feelings ,

    O Brasil é grande e rico!

  21. scorpven says

    Everything is locally natural including the bowl you are eating from, that comes from a tree. No spicing it it up but then you took the chili sauce and change them forever.

  22. Shaji Kodiyatu says

  27. Richard T says

    I would love to hear about the family living in the rain forest. For years we have heard of undiscovered tribes. It is obvious that this family moves between the rain forest and the city. Also, how does a visit from Mark get set up?
