Northeast Brazilian The Northeast area of Brazil, mainly the states of Alagoas, Bahia, Ceará, Maranhão, Paraíba, Pernambuco, Piauí, Rio Grande do Norte, and Sergipe, composes geographically of a slender, profuse coastal plain with abundant rainfall in which most of the population is encountered, an similarly slim transition zone referred to as the Agreste, and a big semi-arid area termed the Sertão, which is dominated by vast cattle ranches. All forms of tropical produce are cultivated on the coastal plain, with sugarcane and cacao being specifically extensive. Throughout the State of Bahia the predominant cuisine is Afro-Bahian, which developed from plantation cooks improvising on African, Amerindian, and traditional Portuguese meals employing nearby attainable ingredients. Usual 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 full with dried shrimp, red pepper and caruru (mashed okra with ground cashew nut, smoked shrimp, onion, pepper and garlic). The principal staple is a plate of white rice and black beans yet other frequent dishes comprise of farofa, paçoca, canjica, pamonha and quibebe. In the remainder of the coastal plains there is less African influence on the food, however seafood, shellfish, coconut and tropical fruit are menu staples. Normally 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). All of these states have their variants in cuisine and method, being Bahia one of the most typical of them. Actually, Bahia is the only Brazilian state in which the food is spicy, and dining establishments will inquire you if you want your meal “hot” or “cold”, indicating “spicy hot” or not. They use a good deal of “pimenta” (pepper) and azeite de dende (a particular kind of oil) to cook their meals. Overall, though, most northeastern states will probably use tapioca flour and sun-dried beef (carne de sol). Shrimp and fish are also highly widespread and cheap. Another feature of northeastern food is the amount. Often, the meals are really generous, and a dish can supply two to three people. Several 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 everyone seems to gather for happy hour to have caipirinhas, cocktails, beers and other beverages.
Snacks are very common, frequently they are dependent on the local foods, but many are typical all over 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 offer 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 most people, who see pubs as a night time venue.
People commonly gather in bars to watch and enjoy sports events. Typically, these are soccer matches, which occur often and not only during the World Cup. Brazil has soccer tournaments throughout the year, and everyone has their favorite team. It isn't strange 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.
