DNA Natural specializes in natural dishes. The juices are the main attraction of the house, always prepared with real fruit without pulp or preservatives. For a light and healthy meal, the tip is the caprese salad, leading lettuce, arugula, mozzarella, basil and special sauce.
Salad buffets are everywhere in Brazil. Any restaurant has them. Brazilians love to mix fruit in their salads. Fruit is very abundant in the country, so pineapples, bananas, melons, starfruit, mangoes, cashews, acai berries and acerola berries, oranges, and many more can be found mostly everywhere. Baby spring mix and herb mix leaves are not common in Brazil. Usually, one will find the regular size lettuce and spinach, arugula, collard greens, broccoli, carrots, radishes, sweet onions, potatoes, cauliflowers, okra, etc. Fresh green or white asparagus are not common in Brazil and are very hard to find.
Restaurants in Brazil are typically designed to handle lunch time guests rather than the typical dinner time guests. This significantly changes how they prepare dishes, and how they price dishes. Many lunch time diners are looking for a very simple dining experience, with a hearty and relatively quick meal. Hot buffets offer them this by having various hot dishes ready. Pricing is frequently by weight or an all-you-can-eat model, many places have both options available.
Sandwiches are considered a snack and not a proper meal! Therefore restaurants typically serve up hot and nutritious dishes for lunch rather than the typical North American small style lunches.
Meals are commonly served and eaten on premises, but many restaurants also offer take away and food delivery services. Of course the dinning establishments differ greatly 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 families. This isn’t always doable, particularly in the larger metropolitan areas, so restaurants have used this opportunity and designed a business model around catering to these people. In many of the less crowded cities it can be challenging to find a traditional sit down and order off the menu style eatery.
