Brazilians adore Italian food! Italian meals are popular and in great demand due to the large population of Italian descendants in the country. Many areas of southern Brazil speak only in Italian. Most of these Italians immigrated to Brazil in the 1800's and yet still maintain customs and culture from Italy even after all of these years! Sao Paulo has a significant population of Italians in the Bexiga neighborhood, and in Southern Brazil there are huge populations in Caxias do Sul, Bento Goncalves, and Garibaldi areas. These areas normally have the best Italian food, but competition has maintained the quality of food significantly higher everywhere.
Restaurants in Brazil are generally setup to handle lunch time customers rather than the typical dinner time customers. This significantly changes how they prepare meals, and how they price meals. Many lunch time diners are looking for a fairly relaxed eating experience, with a healthy and reasonably quick meal. Hot buffets offer them this by having multiple hot dishes ready. Pricing is generally 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 normally serve up hot and nutritious dishes for lunch as opposed to the typical North American light style lunches.
Meals are typically served and eaten on premises, but many dining establishments also offer take-out and food delivery services. Of course the establishments differ greatly in appearance and offerings, including a wide variety of dishes.
For Brazilians it is very prevalent to return home for lunch to have their meal with their families. This isn’t always practical, particularly in the larger cities, so restaurants have used this opportunity and designed a business around catering to these working families. In many of the smaller cities it can be challenging to find a everyday sit down and order off the menu style establishment.
