Northeast Brazilian The Northeast area of Brazil, chiefly the states of Alagoas, Bahia, Ceará, Maranhão, Paraíba, Pernambuco, Piauí, Rio Grande do Norte, and Sergipe, composes geographically of a slender, flourishing coastal plain with considerable rainfall where a large amount of the population is located, an uniformly narrow transition zone termed the Agreste, and a big semi-arid area known as the Sertão, which is mastered by substantial cattle ranches. All varieties of tropical produce are grown on the coastal plain, with sugarcane and cacao being especially abundant. Throughout the State of Bahia the leading cuisine is Afro-Bahian, which came from plantation cooks improvising on African, Amerindian, and customary Portuguese recipes making use of locally accessible ingredients. Frequent meals include vatapá, moqueca (both having seafood and palm oil), and acarajé (a savory muffin made with 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 predominant staple is a serving of white rice and black beans yet other widespread meals consist of farofa, paçoca, canjica, pamonha and quibebe. In the rest of the coastal plains there is less African affect on the food, however seafood, shellfish, coconut and tropical fruit are menu staples. Usually consumed tropical fruits in the North-eastern region are mango, papaya, guava, orange, passion fruit, pineapple, sweet sop, "hog-plum," sour sop, and cashew (both the fruit and the nut). Each one of these states have their differences in cuisine and way, being Bahia one of the most distinctive of them. Actually, Bahia is the sole Brazilian state where the food is spicy, and bistros will consult you if you want your meal “hot” or “cold”, signifying “spicy hot” or not. They use a lot 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 truly widespread and affordable. Another feature of northeastern food is the quantity. Commonly, the portions are really giving, and a dish can supply 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.
Restaurants in Brazil are often setup to handle lunch time diners rather than the typical dinner time customers. This significantly 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 relatively quick meal. Hot buffets offer them this by having many hot dishes ready. Pricing is generally 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 hearty dishes for lunch as opposed to the typical North American simple style lunches.
Meals are usually served and consumed on premises, but many restaurants also offer take away 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 family members. This isn’t always possible, particularly in the larger metropolitan areas, so restaurants have used this opportunity and designed a business model around catering to these people. In many of the less crowded cities it can be challenging to find a standard sit down and order off the menu style eatery.
