Snacks in Brazil

Brazilian snacks, called lanches, include a wide variety of pastries. Look for coxinha, empadinha, and pastel. Another common snack is a misto quente, a ham-and-cheese sandwich. Also pão-de-queijo is very common.

Fast food is also very popular, and the local takes on hamburgers and hot-dogs ("cachorro-quente", translated literally) are well worth trying. Brazilian sandwiches tend to come in many varieties, including various combinations of ingredients like mayonnaise, bacon, ham, cheese, lettuce, tomato, corn, peas, raisins, french fries, ketchup, eggs, pickles, etc. The fast food chain Bob's is nationwide and has been around almost as long as McDonald's.

Brazilians handle sandwiches with napkins and use utensils to eat french fries.
