Brazilians just love 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 converse only in Italian. Most of these Italians immigrated to Brazil in the 1800's and yet still maintain foods and culture from Italy even after all of these generations! Sao Paulo has a huge population of Italians in the Bexiga neighborhood, and in Southern Brazil there are large populations in Caxias do Sul, Bento Goncalves, and Garibaldi areas. These areas often have the best Italian food, but competition has kept the quality of food very high everywhere.
Restaurants in Brazil are normally setup to handle lunch time guests rather than the typical dinner time guests. This significantly changes how they serve foods, and how they price their food. Many lunch time diners are looking for a fairly simple eating experience, with a hearty and fairly 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 thought of as a snack and not a proper meal! Therefore restaurants generally serve up hot and hearty dishes for lunch instead of the typical North American simple style lunches.
Meals are ordinarily served and enjoyed on premises, but many restaurants also offer take-out and food delivery services. Of course the establishments vary widely in appearance and offerings, including a wide variety of dishes.
For Brazilians it is very popular to go back home for lunch to have their meal with their family members. This isn’t always viable, specifically in the larger metropolitan areas, so restaurants have seized up this opportunity and designed a business model around catering to these individuals. In many of the considerably smaller cities it can be challenging to find a traditional sit down and order off the menu style restaurant.
