Elma’s really have the edge when it comes to creatively crafting the local ‘tapiocas’ as nobody else had ever dared to make’em. Exquisite ingredients’ combinations, in very juicy, well-served rolls will positively surprise you. Don’t miss the sweet ones either.

This is not a restaurant, but more an option for a street side snack instead of a full meal or the sweet tapiocas as alternative for a dessert after having your meal at a restaurant. Delicious tapiocas. Very, very generous with the fillings. Brisk business...More

Ate many tapiocas here, and have to concede that they are the best I tried on Trancoso - sorry Sandra. The fillings are varied and generous, and the tapioca is cooked perfectly. I recommend the chicken with cheese, tomato and pineapple chutney - very more-ish.

Ordered a single tapioca with Nutella and was charged 20R$! I thought this was very expensive and felt taken advantage of as I didn’t speak Portuguese. Not a good first impression of Trancoso. It did taste good though.

Elma e Jide took the tapioca and acaraje to the world of high gastronomy. There is the only place in the world where you can have one tapioca and acaraje with service of 3 star

If you're looking to have a great *tapioca* you just found the spot! They are generously filled and the dough so crunchy that you might want to have another one. I recommend to have one savory each and split the sweet as a desert. The...More
