Among the colors and the samba of Brazil, with the ingredients and charisma of Spain, is born Indigenous Street Food – a concept full of passion and love from founders Bea and Ricardo, who in 2015 decided to undertake a project where both can show their love for the gastronomy of both countries, and culminates with a striking foodtruck .
After several years of filming with the foodtruck, they decided to open the store in the Sagrada Familia neighborhood a year ago. Indigenous Street Food is full of color and flavor everywhere, from the façade painted by Mena, Brazilian artist, work that crosses the windows and permeates the internal walls, leaving a carnival of colors inspired by the energies of the universe.
From the menu it complies with fusion philosophy, beginning with typical Spanish tapas and fuzing that with Brazilian airs, as one can see with the picanha with farofa (roasted yucca flour) and vinaigrette; Asturian chorizo with cider or octopus with vinaigrette, following with tapiocas and dessert
Tapioca is a typical dish from Brazilian natives, made from cassava flour. It has been the star dish of Indigenous Street Food since the first day, and inspired them to create this project and its name, due to its origin. With the fusion of both cultures Bea and Ricardo aim to create an infinity of combinations like the Mallorcan one of sobrasada, cheese and honey; the tropical with marinated chicken, caramelized onions and avocado cream; or the Canarian with roasted meat and red mojo.
An ideology of doing everything at home is what Bea and Ricardo love to do, from the process of making tapioca flour to desserts such as carrot cake, or the Açaí bowl. The roasted coffee made in a traditional Brazilian way is a very different and delicious way to drink coffee.
We cannot say that Indigenous Street Food is 100% Brazilian or 100% Spanish, but instead it is the perfect fusion between both cultures.
