Northeast Brazilian The Northeast section of Brazil, principally the states of Alagoas, Bahia, Ceará, Maranhão, Paraíba, Pernambuco, Piauí, Rio Grande do Norte, and Sergipe, consists geographically of a narrow, fecund coastal plain with considerable rainfall where a large amount of the population is encountered, an uniformly slender transition zone referred to as the Agreste, and a big semi-arid zone named the Sertão, which is mastered by large cattle ranches. All varieties of tropical produce are grown on the coastal plain, with sugarcane and cacao being particularly extensive. Throughout the State of Bahia the leading cuisine is Afro-Bahian, which progressed from plantation cooks improvising on African, Amerindian, and typical Portuguese dishes using nearby attainable ingredients. Regular foods include vatapá, moqueca (both having seafood and palm oil), and acarajé (a savory muffin composed of white beans, onion and fried in palm oil (dendê) which is stuffed with dried shrimp, red pepper and caruru (mashed okra with ground cashew nut, smoked shrimp, onion, pepper and garlic). The major staple is a dish of white rice and black beans although other typical meals include farofa, paçoca, canjica, pamonha and quibebe. In the remainder of the coastal plains there is less African impact on the food, yet seafood, shellfish, coconut and tropical fruit are menu staples. Generally consumed tropical fruits in the North-eastern region include 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 variants in cuisine and type, being Bahia one of the most distinctive of them. In fact, Bahia is the single Brazilian state where the food is spicy, and restaurants will question you whether you want your meal “hot” or “cold”, indicating “spicy hot” or not. They use a whole lot of “pimenta” (pepper) and azeite de dende (a particular kind of oil) to cook their meals. Overall, though, most northeastern states likely will employ tapioca flour and sun-dried beef (carne de sol). Shrimp and fish are also really in demand and cheap. Another characteristic of northeastern food is the amount. Commonly, the meals are truly giving, and a dish can serve two to three people. Many 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 many “bares”, or “barzinhos”, (pubs, little pubs) where adults gather for happy hour to have caipirinhas, cocktails, beers and other alcohol.
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 common 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 little unusual for many people, who see pubs as a night time venue.
People commonly get together in bars to watch sports events. Typically, these are soccer matches, which happen frequently and not only during the World Cup. Brazil has soccer tournaments throughout the year, and absolutely everyone has their favorite team. It isn't unusual to see vast numbers of people wearing team jerseys.
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.
