Northeast Brazilian The Northeast portion of Brazil, largely the states of Alagoas, Bahia, Ceará, Maranhão, Paraíba, Pernambuco, Piauí, Rio Grande do Norte, and Sergipe, constitutes geographically of a narrow, fecund coastal plain with abundant rainfall where most of the population is encountered, an evenly slim transition zone titled the Agreste, and a big semi-arid area labeled the Sertão, which is lead by sizable cattle ranches. All varieties of tropical produce are raised on the coastal plain, with sugarcane and cacao being significantly plentiful. Among the State of Bahia the principal cuisine is Afro-Bahian, which progressed from plantation cooks improvising on African, Amerindian, and traditional Portuguese dishes utilizing locally attainable ingredients. Usual meals include vatapá, moqueca (both having seafood and palm oil), and acarajé (a salted muffin made with white beans, onion and fried in palm oil (dendê) which is filled with dried shrimp, red pepper and caruru (mashed okra with ground cashew nut, smoked shrimp, onion, pepper and garlic). The key staple is a plate of white rice and black beans although other popular foods consist of farofa, paçoca, canjica, pamonha and quibebe. In the rest of the coastal plains there is less African influence on the food, but seafood, shellfish, coconut and tropical fruit are menu staples. Generally eaten tropical fruits in the North-eastern region consist of mango, papaya, guava, orange, passion fruit, pineapple, sweet sop, "hog-plum," sour sop, and cashew (both the fruit and the nut). Every one of these states have their differences in cuisine and way, being Bahia one of the most individual of them. Actually, Bahia is the single Brazilian state in which the food is spicy, and cafes will ask you whether you want your meal “hot” or “cold”, which means “spicy hot” or not. They use a ton of “pimenta” (pepper) and azeite de dende (a particular kind of oil) to cook their meals. In general, though, most northeastern states will utilize tapioca flour and sun-dried beef (carne de sol). Shrimp and fish are also really prominent and inexpensive. Another characteristic of northeastern food is the amount. Usually, the meals are very giving, and a dish can complete two to three people. Some of the favorites from this cuisine are “moqueca de peixe”, acaraje’, vatapa’, tapioca com coco e leite condensado, cashew juice, acerola juice, acai.
In Brazil, there are numerous “bares”, or “barzinhos”, (pubs, little pubs) where people gather for happy hour to have caipirinhas, cocktails, beers and other drinks.
Snacks are widespread, many are dependent on the local foods, but many are typical all over Brazil. Polenta frita (fried polenta), pao-de-queijo (biscuits baked with cheese inside), salami Italiano, fried chicken wings, cod fish balls (deep fried pastry made with wheat flour, egg, and shredded cod fish), various cheeses, and olive platters.
It is very common for bars, called botequins, to offer cafe-com-leite (coffee with milk) served in a shot glass, plus fresh french bread with butter for breakfast. This is a little unusual for most people, who see pubs as a night time venue.
People commonly get together in bars to enjoy sports events. Normally, these are soccer matches, which happen frequently and not only during the World Cup. Brazil has soccer tournaments throughout the year, and everybody has their favorite team. It isn't uncommon to see significant numbers of people promoting their team.
Brazilian pubs range from very informal, lower class establishments to very formal, higher end places. Unlike most North American pubs, most of these pubs are wide open to the public with no formal entrance.
The minimum age for drinking in Brazil is 18 years old, and if you look older than 18 it is very likely you won’t be asked to show your ID. Public drinking is allowed in most cities, and public areas.
