Street Food and Snacks


Pão de Queijo:

Cheese puffs like you never had them before. Absolute must.




Pastel de Carne:

Very much like a deep fried beef turn-over. Must try.




Pastel de Queijo/Camarão:

Just like above, but with cheese or shrimp.




Empada de Camarão:

Shrimp cup pastry.





Arabic snack made from deep fried whole-wheat surrounding a spicy ground beef center.





String chicken pastry inside deep-fried dough.




Bolinho de Aipim:

Deep-fried cassava dough with a ground beef center.




Croquete de Carne:

Oven baked whole-wheat dough with ground beefcenter.




Pão de Batata:

Potato bread with chicken, sausage, or ground beefcenter.




Cachorro Quente (hot dog):

A variation of the NY style hotdog: bread, hot doglink, tomato paste with onions and peppers, then optionals: corn, string potatoes, parmesan and other stuff. Forget the other stuff.




Cachorro Quente de Forno:

Oven baked hotdog in croissant shaped bread.





A tri-folded pizza of Arabic origin. Must have.





Deep fried dough filled with none other than doce de leite (caramel’s rich cousin). Then rolled in cinnamon sugar. Mmmmm good.




Misto Quente:

Ham and cheese sandwich, made with stringy mozzarella. A must and usually very safe.





Hamburger/ Cheese-burger.





Double cheese burger with everything they have to offer: bacon, fried egg, sausage, pulled chicken, string potatoes, corn, etc etc.





A big hotdog link on a stick, grilled then pointlessly dipped in vinaigrette and farofa.




Pastel de Forno:

Oven baked folded pie with various flavor fillings. Great usually.




Bolinho de Bacalhau:

Cod fish cake in ball format. V ery good. Eat it with olive oil. Don’t try the peppers.





A flat croissant filed with ham and cheese, spinach or chicken.





The poor man’s ham and cheese croissant. So doughy, you’ll need 3 cokes to choke this down. Waste of money.




Sanduiche Natural:

Simple sandwich lettuce, tomatoes, cheese and ham and or variations of these, without any condiments. Light and healthy.
