Steak House These dining establishments deliver the classic Brazilian barbecue, which consists of entire cuts of meat that are skewed and barbecued in a “churrasqueira” built from bricks. Prime rib, tri tip, fillet mignon, shrimp, chicken, pork, lamb, and even pineapple skewed and barbecued to fineness in a brick oven and served at your table, where the waiters cut the meat and serve them on the consumers’ plates. The various cuts of meat continue coming to the customers’ table, where they have the alternative to take a slice of the cut or reject it. The “churrascarias” ordinarily offer, additionally to the meat, an all-you-can-eat buffet. Usually, the buffet serves salads, rice, beans, and some fish stew. Typically, these houses also offer pao-de-queijo (similar to cheese puffs, a bread made of tapioca flour and cheese), deep fried banana (typical Brazilian treats), and baked pineapple - a whole pineapple skewed and wrapped in sugar and cinnamon and barbecued. Hearts of palm, fresh fruits and vegetables are likewise part of the menu.
Restaurants in Brazil are normally setup to handle lunch time diners rather than the typical dinner time customers. This drastically changes how they prepare dishes, and how they price dishes. Many lunch time diners are looking for a fairly relaxed dining experience, with a nutritious and reasonably quick meal. Hot buffets offer them this by having many hot dishes ready. Pricing is generally by weight or an all-you-can-eat model, many places have both options available.
Sandwiches are thought of as a snack and not a proper meal! Therefore restaurants typically serve up hot and hearty dishes for lunch rather than the typical North American light style lunches.
Meals are typically served and consumed on premises, but many dining establishments also offer take away and food delivery services. Of course the establishments differ greatly in appearance and offerings, including a wide variety of foods.
For Brazilians it is very common to return home for lunch to have their meal with their family members. This isn’t always viable, specifically in the larger metropolitan areas, so restaurants have used this opportunity and designed a business model around catering to these individuals. In many of the less crowded cities it can be difficult to find a everyday sit down and order off the menu style establishment.
