The Northeast area of Brazil, chiefly the states of Alagoas, Bahia, Ceará, Maranhão, Paraíba, Pernambuco, Piauí, Rio Grande do Norte, and Sergipe, contains geographically of a slim, fertile coastal plain with considerable rainfall where most of the population is found, an uniformly narrow transition zone referred to as the Agreste, and a sizable semi-arid zone called the Sertão, which is mastered by significant cattle ranches. All kinds of tropical produce are grown on the coastal plain, with sugarcane and cacao being significantly extensive.
Throughout the State of Bahia the prevalent cuisine is Afro-Bahian, which developed from plantation cooks improvising on African, Amerindian, and classic Portuguese dishes making use of locally existing ingredients.
Common dishes include 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 loaded with dried shrimp, red pepper and caruru (mashed okra with ground cashew nut, smoked shrimp, onion, pepper and garlic). The key staple is a dish of white rice and black beans yet other widespread dishes 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. Usually enjoyed 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).
All of these states have their versions in cuisine and type, being Bahia one of the most particular of them. In fact, Bahia is the single Brazilian state where the food is spicy, and dining places will question you if you want your meal “hot” or “cold”, signifying “spicy hot” or not. They use a good deal of of “pimenta” (pepper) and azeite de dende (a particular kind of oil) to cook their meals. On the whole, however, most northeastern states will use tapioca flour and sun-dried beef (carne de sol). Shrimp and fish are also very popular and cheap. Another characteristic of northeastern food is the amount. Usually, the portions are truly large, and a dish can suit 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 numerous “bares”, or “barzinhos”, (pubs, little pubs) where individuals gather for happy hour to have caipirinhas, cocktails, beers and other alcohol.
Snacks are widespread, many are dependent on the local foods, but many are common everywhere in 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 have cafe-com-leite (coffee with milk) served in a shot glass, plus fresh french bread with butter for breakfast. This is a fairly unusual for most people, who see pubs as a night time venue.
People typically get together in bars to enjoy sports events. Commonly, these are soccer matches, which occur often and not only during the World Cup. Brazil has soccer tournaments throughout the year, and absolutely everyone has their favorite team. It isn't uncommon to see massive 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.
