When traveling through Brazil you’re going to encounter a lot of food items. Some will be in restaurants, others will be at your hotel, but there will also be a wide array of street vendors to purchase food from as well. No matter what you are in the mood for, make sure that you look at finding the following tasty treats. These will completely change how you look at food, and perhaps even get you to try something a bit left of center. Each option can be found throughout your travels, and should be tasted as regional elements change up the composition overall.
Pao de Queijo
For all intents and purposes, these are just rolls of bread, right? In theory, they just seem like normal little bread items. It’s when you get one and taste it that you will realize that this is a slice of heaven. The bread has cheese baked into it, and while it is rolled into a ball, it’s like eating a little pastry from the clouds.
Amidst the many culinary delights that you will want to explore, Feijao Tropeiro is a brilliant little concoction. Take the notion of breakfast, add beans, and then toss around with bacon, and scallions with a little flour and you have yourself a meal that will very much scream to be eaten with a tortilla. This is an amazing little dish that will have you delighted that you’re in Brazil taking in the food.
Moqueca de Camarao
Amidst the traditional cooking options, you’re going to want to seek out this soup. This delight of the ocean will harken to Thailand’s famous dishes, but with a little bit of heat, you’re going to be taken into a whole new cultural endeavor. This shrimp stew has a nice hue of yellow and is like eating clam chowder in an exotic locale (no clams involved), and it is just rich in texture, taste, and simplicity.
Crème de Papaya
Here is one of the most incredible little sweet dishes that you are going to find in Brazil. Take papaya, mix ice cream and top with a liquor and you have this dessert that is going to impress even the most discerning of taste buds. It’s sweet, it’s got liqueur, it’s got the big flavor of papaya and ice cream, it’s a delight.
Of course, the above are just some of the options that you are going to encounter. Make sure that you look out for other delights like Romeu e Julieta, which will delight you with its little slice of guava in your hands.
