Steak House These establishments have the usual Brazilian barbecue, which is composed of full cuts of meat that are skewed and barbecued in a “churrasqueira” made with bricks. Prime rib, tri tip, fillet mignon, shrimp, chicken, pork, lamb, and even pineapple skewed and barbecued to excellence in a brick oven and served at your table, where the servers cut the meat and serve them on the clients’ plates. The unique cuts of meat remain coming to the customers’ table, where they have the possibility to accept a slice of the cut or reject it. The “churrascarias” often have, complimentary to the meat, an all-you-can-eat buffet. Usually, the buffet serves salads, rice, beans, and some fish stew. Frequently, these houses also offer pao-de-queijo (similar to cheese puffs, a bread made of tapioca flour and cheese), deep fried banana (regular Brazilian treats), and baked pineapple - a whole pineapple skewed and covered in sugar and cinnamon and barbecued. Hearts of palm, fresh fruits and vegetables are as well part of the repertoire.
Restaurants in Brazil are frequently designed to handle lunch time customers rather than the typical dinner time customers. This greatly changes how they prepare meals, and how they price their food. Many lunch time diners are looking for a very casual eating experience, with a hearty and fairly quick meal. Hot buffets offer them this by having numerous hot dishes ready. Pricing is often by weight or an all-you-can-eat model, the majority of places have both options available.
Sandwiches are considered a snack and not a proper meal! Therefore restaurants normally serve up hot and healthy dishes for lunch instead of the typical North American light style lunches.
Meals are normally served and enjoyed on premises, but many establishments also offer take away and food delivery services. Of course the dinning establishments vary widely in appearance and offerings, including a wide variety of cuisines.
For Brazilians it is very common to go back home for lunch to have their meal with their families. This isn’t always practical, particularly in the larger meropolises, so restaurants have used this opportunity and designed a business around catering to these people. In many of the smaller cities it can be difficult to find a traditional sit down and order off the menu style eatery.
