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.
In Brazil, there are many “bares”, or “barzinhos”, (pubs, little pubs) where individuals gather for happy hour to have caipirinhas, cocktails, beers and other cold drinks.
Snacks are widespread, frequently they are dependent on the local foods, but many are common 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 quite typical 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 very unusual for many people, who see pubs as a night time venue.
People usually gather in bars to enjoy sports events. Typically, these are soccer matches, which take place 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 significant 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.
