Brazilian Food - 5 Foods You MUST EAT in Brazil

Comida Brasileira, Brazilian Food! Brazil is full of delicious meats, fruits, and specialties. Here we go through six overall tasty treats you should have when you come to Brazil. The best of Brazilian food, so you know what to eat when you visit Brazil.
1. The Lanches: the snacks like Pao de Quiejo (cheese bread), Coixinha do Frango (fried chicken dough ball), and such that go great with a Chop (draft beer) or a Caipirinha (the local Brazilian mixed drink), and if you don’t like alcohol the drink of brazil is Guarana.
2. The Meats: Brazil is full of great meat and the most famous meats you will have at a Rodizio or Chrassasco. Here they walk around with many different types of meats from chicken hearts to ribs, but the most important is Picanha, a specific kind of Brazilian cut of meat.
3. The Fruits: Brazil is full of amazing fruit and many you might not have heard of. Visit a market and try fruit you never saw before and have juices made fresh just for you.
4. The Sweets: those fruits go well into many of the bolos (cakes) that are in Brazil, but if you want some chocolate have Brigadeiro, a chocolate made with sweetened condense milk. There are also traditional favorites like doce de leite (cream caramel) or doce de abobara (sweetness of pumpkin).
5. The Local Dishes: each region in Brazil has its own specialities so make sure you are trying what is popular where you are. The south is famous for its beef. The northeast is great for seafood. Bahia has acaraje a bean paste taco kind of dish with shrimp inside. Sao Paulo has its own mortadella/bologna sandwich, or chicken cooked in its own blood in Minas Gerais.
6. Beans and Rice: beans and rice will appear on the menu again and again and even if you didn’t order them expect beans and rice. They are a staple of the Brazilian food culture. Some typical dishes that highlight these are Caldo de Feijao which is a bean soup/stew dish you have as a starter. Feijoada which is the Brazilian bean stew you will have served with rice, kovi, fried banana and with a ice cold chop (beer).

    Gurdana is so good

  2. Larissa Caxambu

    The only thing that is missing is Açaí, one of my favourites!

  3. You made me hungry now!

  4. Plínio Agostinho

    Very nice.
    There's only two things I'd add:
    Guaraná Antarctica isn't the best one. It is the most famous but not the best. Cruzeiro and Esportivo (both from country side in São Paulo state) are way better, for example.

    And SUGARCANE JUICE. Symple the best.

  7. Oh man, you made me homesick with this video!! The Brazilian food is for sure, by far, the best! And living in Europe (specially where I am now with such a boring cousin) I surely miss our good Brazilian food with all the snacks and sweets every single day. 😍😍
    Congratulations, btw. Great video, great suggestions! 👏👏👏👏👏👏

    Hello Mark, I'm a fan of your channel! Always with a very good and accurate info with your easy-to-listen English!

    Next time you're in Brazil, if you haven't tried yet, try some Açaí bowls, pudim and paçoca (both the northeastern dish which is astonishingly delicious and the sweet with the same name)… also perhaps you've had Farofa with your Feijoada? And one food that I miss in the US is the requeijão, a cream-cheese-like product… when you put it in a pão de queijo, it doubles its awesomeness!

    And a tip for whoever goes to a churrascaria to get your rodízio (all-you-can-eat meat in skewers): the 'tradition' is to have as dessert the Papaya Cream with Crème-de-Cassis. It works as a great 'digestif'. Greetings!

  12. Lorenzo S.A.

  15. Maura Specials

    Comida brasileira rocks!!!

  16. Açaí!

  17. Thomas Justice

    Can you make a video review on Vancouver Island, BC?? 🙂

  18. Just a minor correction: the amount of caffeine in the guaraná soft drinks is actually negligible. The guaraná berries themselves do contain a lot of caffeine, but the amount of guaraná extract used to make the soft drink is very little.

    I love your videos !!!

    I just returned from my yearly Brazil-visit (always the region "Sertão"). For me "Carne de Sol" is the best choice of meat on Pizza, Pastel, etc.. It's salted sun-dried beaf. Very popular in the north-east region.
