Learn a little bit more about the Snacks in Brazil
Coxinha is one of the most popular snacks in Brazil. It is made of chicken meat, covered in dough and then fried. The shape resembles a chicken leg, that’s why we call it coxinha de frango. We love it so much that we also have sweet versions of this salty coxinha!
Pastel is a very famous snack too. We usually eat pastel at fairs and drink caldo de cana with it; it’s the perfect combination! The pastel is a fried snack made of a special dough and stuffed with meat, cheese, or chicken. We also have some different flavors like: brigadeiro and romeu e julieta.If you are very hungry you can eat a Joelho because it’s delicious and its dough really fills you up. The composition of Joelho de queijo com presunto is dough with cheese and ham inside. You also can eat it stuffed with chicken and cheese. It’s an excellent choice when you need to eat lunch, but are in a hurry.The rissole de camarão is a very sophisticated snack, and it’s a traditional recipe of our culture. Rissole is made of dough with shrimp and cheese inside, and then it is fried.The quibe is an Arabic food that is very famous in Brazil. You can eat it like a snack or you can make it bigger like a cake. This snack’s composition is bulgur, onions that are minced, and meat with Middle Eastern spices. Suggestion: if you want to taste the best Arabic snack in Brazil, you must go to Rotisseria Síro Libanesa at Largo do Machado. Empada is a snack that never is missing from a Brazilian birthday party. Children love it, adults love it, everyone loves empadinha! This snack is composed of wheat, flour, dough and cheese, chicken, shrimp, etc. inside… The dough is so light that you can eat a bunch of them without even noticing.Ok… We stole this snack from the French… But please let us keep it, we really love it!

Esfirra is a little baked pie in the shape of a triangle or a circle. It can be stuffed with many fillings. This is one of the most popular snacks in Brazil as well. Bolinho de aipim com carne seca is as traditional as wearing havaianas. It’s a little cake composed of aipim with dried meat inside. So good that you can feel the sun inside your mouth.
