Brazilians adore buffets. They generally serve salads, meats freshly grilled while you wait, beans, rice, pasta dishes, fresh fruits, and various desserts.
Buffet establishments are typically assumed be an all-you-can-eat for a single price, but Buffets in Brazil aren't always an all-you-can-eat style, generally the food chosen is weighed and charged by the kg. Many places offer up both a charge by weight and a slightly more expensive all-you-can-eat option. These buffets will frequently have plenty of locals present, especially at lunch which is regarded as the largest meal of the day. Since lunch is the large meal of the day, many Brazilians expect a hot and hearty meal when they eat out.
Restaurants in Brazil are frequently designed to handle lunch time guests rather than the typical dinner time guests. This greatly changes how they prepare foods, and how they price their food. Many lunch time diners are looking for a very simple eating experience, with a healthy and fairly quick meal. Hot buffets offer them this by having various hot dishes ready. Pricing is generally by weight or an all-you-can-eat model, many places have both options available.
Sandwiches are regarded as a snack and not a proper meal! Therefore restaurants normally serve up hot and nutritious dishes for lunch rather than the typical North American light style lunches.
Meals are generally served and eaten on premises, but many establishments also offer take away and food delivery services. Of course the dinning establishments vary widely in appearance and offerings, including a wide variety of dishes.
For Brazilians it is very common to go back home during lunch to have their meal with their family members. This isn’t always practical, especially in the larger metropolitan areas, so restaurants have seized up this opportunity and designed a business model around catering to these people. In many of the considerably smaller cities it can be challenging to find a standard sit down and order off the menu style restaurant.
