Steak House These dining places feature the usual Brazilian barbecue, which is made of complete cuts of meat that are skewed and barbecued in a “churrasqueira” comprised of bricks. Prime rib, tri tip, fillet mignon, shrimp, chicken, pork, lamb, and even pineapple skewed and barbecued to flawlessness in a brick oven and served at your table, where the servers cut the meat and serve them on the customers’ plates. The many cuts of meat keep coming to the customers’ table, where they have the possibility to agree to a slice of the cut or decline it. The “churrascarias” normally provide, complimentary to the meat, an all-you-can-eat buffet. Often, the buffet provides salads, rice, beans, and some fish stew. Usually, these houses also offer pao-de-queijo (similar to cheese puffs, a bread made of tapioca flour and cheese), deep fried banana (standard 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 as well part of the arsenal.
Restaurants in Brazil are generally setup to handle lunch time customers rather than the typical dinner time diners. This greatly changes how they serve dishes, and how they price their dishes. Many lunch time diners are looking for a very relaxed dining experience, with a nutritious and relatively quick meal. Hot buffets offer them this by having numerous hot dishes ready. Pricing is generally by weight or an all-you-can-eat model, the majority of places have both options available.
Sandwiches are thought of as a snack and not a proper meal! Therefore restaurants typically serve up hot and healthy dishes for lunch instead of the typical North American small style lunches.
Meals are typically served and consumed on premises, but many establishments also offer take away and food delivery services. Of course the dinning establishments vary greatly in appearance and offerings, including a wide variety of cuisines.
For Brazilians it is very prevalent to go back home for lunch to have their meal with their family members. This isn’t always possible, especially in the larger cities, so restaurants have taken up the slack and designed a business around catering to these working families. In many of the considerably smaller cities it can be difficult to find a standard sit down and order off the menu style establishment.
