Besides the obvious American hamburger, Brazilians have created their own adaptation of America's popular meal, simply calling it "X".
The name derives from cheeseburger, which, influenced by the country's native language, Portuguese, became simply known as "X", and pronounced sheeez. The X-burger is typically much larger than any burger from well-known fast-food chains around the world. One can select pretty much any meat to be in the X-burger, include chicken steak, fish steak, chicken hearts, beef steak, strogonoff, various barbecued meats, lamb steak, or even vegetarian. X-burgers include a deep-fried egg, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, straw fries, mayonnaise, mustard, catchup, onions, corn, peas, and much more. It is ordinarily said that it is very challenging to finish a X-burger in one sitting! It is definitely a twist on the typical American variety burger.
Sandwiches are the most popular type of snack in Brazil. While sandwiches are commonly a complete dinner in North America, they are considered a light snack in Brazil. This is generally due to the way they are prepared, with limited meats, vegetables and cheeses used. Sandwiches are usually two slices of bread, mayo, cheese and meat. Sandwiches aren't the only type of snack available though!
A modest pastel, pao-de-queijo, or a croquete (ground beef breaded and deep fried) are common options as well. Some people even have sandwiches for dinner, which is always a smaller meal for most Brazilians.
Sandwiches can also be the Sao Paulo “Beirute” and the Southern Brazil “X-burger”. The latter is bigger than a regular cheeseburger and may also be filled with a variety of meats, from chicken, to beef, to pork, and even chicken hearts! The name comes from the way Brazilians pronounce “cheese”, which evolved into the shortened version “X” (sheeez). The Beirute is a much larger sandwich. This sandwich is toasted and also much larger than a regular hamburger or cheeseburger. It has a Arab influence, as the name “Beirute” suggests.
