More Murupi, Please
On every table at Favela Cubana, stands a bottle of Companhia das Ervas Murupi Pepper Sauce, one of our favorite condiments. You don't have to go easy on this spicy, aromatic pepper sauce from Brazil--it has more flavor than heat. Made from Murupi peppers, which are native to the Amazonian rainforest, it also incorporates salt, vinegar, garlic, sugar and other spices. We like it drizzled pretty generously over fried plantain.
