Asian meals in Brazil generally means either Chinese or Japanese. Similar to many ethnic foods, when they reach a new country they're are normally infused with native spices, techniques and flavors. Both of these cuisine have been tailored to the Brazilian culture, changing to meet the expectations of Brazilians, and using locally attainable ingredients. Chinese food typically has the standard dishes, such as chow mein, fried noodles, and rice. Since there aren't many Chinese vegetables available in Brazil, Brazilians have replaced many ingredients to create their own fusion dishes. Japanese food is generally very good because Brazil has the second largest population of Japanese, outside of Japan. Typical dishes include yakisoba, sushi, sashimi, and “frango xadrez" which is similar to a chow mein, with chicken, vegetables and noodles.
Restaurants in Brazil are frequently setup to handle lunch time diners rather than the typical dinner time diners. This drastically 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 hearty and reasonably quick meal. Hot buffets offer them this by having various hot dishes ready. Pricing is usually by weight or an all-you-can-eat model, most 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 instead of the typical North American light style lunches.
Meals are usually served and eaten on premises, but many dining establishments also offer take-out and food delivery services. Of course the establishments vary 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 family members. This isn’t always viable, particularly in the larger metropolitan areas, so restaurants have used this opportunity and designed a business model around catering to these individuals. In many of the considerably smaller cities it can be problematic to find a traditional sit down and order off the menu style business.
