Northeast Brazilian The Northeast part of Brazil, predominantly the states of Alagoas, Bahia, Ceará, Maranhão, Paraíba, Pernambuco, Piauí, Rio Grande do Norte, and Sergipe, constitutes geographically of a slim, blooming coastal plain with considerable rainfall in which most of the population is found, an evenly slim transition zone called the Agreste, and a substantial semi-arid region termed the Sertão, which is mastered by significant cattle ranches. All sorts of tropical produce are grown on the coastal plain, with sugarcane and cacao being significantly extensive. Among the State of Bahia the primary cuisine is Afro-Bahian, which developed from plantation cooks improvising on African, Amerindian, and conventional Portuguese foods using nearby accessible ingredients. Usual dinners consist of vatapá, moqueca (both having seafood and palm oil), and acarajé (a salted muffin composed of white beans, onion and fried in palm oil (dendê) which is full with dried shrimp, red pepper and caruru (mashed okra with ground cashew nut, smoked shrimp, onion, pepper and garlic). The main staple is a dish of white rice and black beans however other common foods include farofa, paçoca, canjica, pamonha and quibebe. In the remainder of the coastal plains there is less African impact on the food, but seafood, shellfish, coconut and tropical fruit are menu staples. Commonly consumed 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 method, being Bahia one of the most particular of them. In fact, Bahia is the sole Brazilian state in which the food is spicy, and bistros will inquire you if 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. On the whole, though, most northeastern states likely will use tapioca flour and sun-dried beef (carne de sol). Shrimp and fish are also pretty in demand and inexpensive. Another attribute of northeastern food is the quantity. Commonly, the portions are really generous, and a dish can complete two to three people. Some of the preferred from this cuisine are “moqueca de peixe”, acaraje’, vatapa’, tapioca com coco e leite condensado, cashew juice, acerola juice, acai.
In Brazil, there are many “bares”, or “barzinhos”, (pubs, little pubs) where people gather for happy hour to have caipirinhas, cocktails, beers and other drinks.
Snacks are popular, frequently they are dependent on the local foods, but many are typical throughout 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 quite typical for bars, called botequins, to have cafe-com-leite (coffee with milk) served in a shot glass, plus fresh french bread with butter for breakfast. This is a very unusual for most people, who are used to pubs as a night time venue.
People usually gather in bars to enjoy sports events. Normally, these are soccer matches, which take place regularly and not only during the World Cup. Brazil has soccer tournaments throughout the year, and absolutely everyone has their favorite team. It isn't strange to see large 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.
