Northeast Brazilian The Northeast portion of Brazil, predominantly the states of Alagoas, Bahia, Ceará, Maranhão, Paraíba, Pernambuco, Piauí, Rio Grande do Norte, and Sergipe, composes geographically of a narrow, fertile coastal plain with ample rainfall in which most of the population is located, an likewise thin transition zone named the Agreste, and a large semi-arid area titled the Sertão, which is dominated by large cattle ranches. All sorts of tropical produce are grown on the coastal plain, with sugarcane and cacao being especially plentiful. Across the State of Bahia the principal cuisine is Afro-Bahian, which developed from plantation cooks improvising on African, Amerindian, and conventional Portuguese dishes making use of locally accessible ingredients. Usual foods are 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 stuffed with dried shrimp, red pepper and caruru (mashed okra with ground cashew nut, smoked shrimp, onion, pepper and garlic). The principal staple is a serving of white rice and black beans however other frequent meals consist of farofa, paçoca, canjica, pamonha and quibebe. In the rest of the coastal plains there is less African influence on the food, but seafood, shellfish, coconut and tropical fruit are menu staples. Frequently eaten tropical fruits in the North-eastern region include 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 variations in cuisine and style, being Bahia one of the most different of them. Actually, Bahia is the sole Brazilian state in which the food is spicy, and eateries will ask you if you want your meal “hot” or “cold”, indicating “spicy hot” or not. They use a great deal of “pimenta” (pepper) and azeite de dende (a particular kind of oil) to cook their meals. Overall, though, most northeastern states are going to utilize tapioca flour and sun-dried beef (carne de sol). Shrimp and fish are also highly popular and low-priced. Another attribute of northeastern food is the amount. Typically, the portions are pretty large, and a dish can suit two to three people. Many 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 several “bares”, or “barzinhos”, (pubs, little pubs) where adults gather for happy hour to have caipirinhas, cocktails, beers and other drinks.
Snacks are very popular, frequently they are dependent on the local foods, but many are very 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 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 many people, who see pubs as a night time venue.
People typically gather in bars to enjoy sports events. Commonly, these are soccer matches, which happen regularly 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 large 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.
