Sururu – Disorder

So I learned a new word while watching As Cariocas, for research purposes, of course. The sentence was something like “…de paz para um sururu” and as I enjoy words of Tupi origin, I looked it up and to my surprise, it means “mussels”. Not trusting the regular dictionary, I checked it on Dicionário Informal and found it means ‘disorder’, as in “foi o maior sururu!” (it was total chaos!)…so, yeah…never throw a bucket of mussels on someone’s head.

  1. Try the caldo de sururu at O Cravinho next time you are in Salvador da Bahia. It is a great food when you are drinking cachaça.
