The steakhouse opened in 1950 is one of the most traditional of the city. One of the tips of Ervin is the homemade polenta as a starter. The suggested main course is filet mignon, which comes with mayonnaise, salad onions, and tomatoes.
These restaurants present the typical Brazilian barbecue, which consists of full cuts of meat that are skewed and barbecued in a “churrasqueira” made of bricks. Prime rib, tri tip, fillet mignon, shrimp, chicken, pork, lamb, and even pineapple skewed and barbecued to excellence in a brick oven and served up at your table, where the waiters cut the meat and serve them on the consumers’ plates. The various cuts of meat remain coming to the customers’ table, where they have the alternative to take a slice of the cut or refuse it. The “churrascarias” normally provide, additionally to the meat, an all-you-can-eat buffet. Typically, the buffet provides salads, rice, beans, and some fish stew. Usually, these houses also offer pao-de-queijo (similar to cheese puffs, a bread made of tapioca flour and cheese), deep fried banana (regular Brazilian treats), and baked pineapple - a whole pineapple skewed and covered in sugar and cinnamon and barbecued. Hearts of palm, fresh fruits and vegetables are likewise part of the repertoire.
Restaurants in Brazil are frequently setup to handle lunch time customers rather than the typical dinner time diners. This greatly changes how they serve dishes, and how they price their food. Many lunch time diners are looking for a fairly simple eating experience, with a healthy and relatively quick meal. Hot buffets offer them this by having many hot dishes ready. Pricing is frequently by weight or an all-you-can-eat model, many places have both options available.
Sandwiches are regarded as a snack and not a proper meal! Therefore restaurants normally serve up hot and hearty dishes for lunch rather than the typical North American simple style lunches.
Meals are ordinarily served and consumed on premises, but many establishments also offer take-out and food delivery services. Of course the establishments vary widely in appearance and offerings, including a wide variety of cuisines.
For Brazilians it is very prevalent to go back home for lunch to have their meal with their family members. This isn’t always practical, especially in the larger metropolitan areas, so restaurants have taken up the slack and designed a business around catering to these working families. In many of the smaller cities it can be difficult to find a standard sit down and order off the menu style restaurant.
