A Kilo is a popular place for a quick lunch. It’s like a buffet, so you serve yourself and and you pay by weight. There were so many dishes, two people could go through the same buffet and end up with completely different meals. The food was pretty flavorful, but the sauteed chicken and fish was almost always way overcooked, so I would usually go with the tender stewed beef. Everything was pretty heavy and I would get really tired after lunch, so I started piling half of the plate with vegetables then just a little rice, beans and meat. Eating in a Kilo was a good opportunity to taste lots of new dishes, but sometimes they weren’t labeled so I didn’t always know what I was eating.
During my last couple days in Salvador, I discovered my favorite kilo, Ramma Cozinha Natural. It opened in 1987 and now there are two locations. The food was much lighter, fresher and more natural than other places. Surprisingly, it was around the same price ($8-12) and they also offer fresh fruit juice, ice cream and cake made with whole wheat flour. The food at Ramma gave me energy instead of taking it away.
