ISO the best moqueca de camarao for under $25 in an "alternative" Valentine's Day setting.

Can anyone dish on recent experiences at Malagueta?

  1. Malagueta is consistently awesome, but I don't know what moqueca de camarao is specifically or if they have it. I would not hesitate to suggest Malagueta for any occasion.

      Oh so it's the shrimp stew? In that case I have had it and loved it. Amazing, definitely give it a try.

    2. Malagueta has this dish for $12.95. I've been to Malagueta twice but didn't have it. Food is outstanding and reasonable.

      1. Have had their version of the moqueca de camarao several times (though not in recent months) and loved it. You won't be disappointed.

            Malagueta was perfect for V-Day casual, and the moqueca was spot-on. Thanks everyone.

              Do A Search: Malagueta Restaurant Astoria and you'll have the address.

            2. had a recent meal at Malagueta and it was as good as everyone said it would be.
              Fritter appetizer, duck, and shell steak. everything was really, really good.

                The breast of duck is really amazing. I've only been once, almost two years ago, but with a group of 8, and everybody was thrilled with everything.
