Millions of Brazilians eat pastel as a quick lunch, a mid-morning or afternoon snack to make it through until dinner. Also, they are good when you are passing time at the market, a street fair or at the beach.

On a Saturday in the State of Sao Paulo here in Brazil pastel is a food that you will find many people enjoying. Brazilian Pastel is a typical dish, consisting usually of a rectangle-shaped thin crust pie with assorted fillings. Pastel dough is crispier than that of empanada dough, with a texture more like that of a spring roll, and it is deep fried in vegetable oil. The result being a delicious, crispy, fried turnover snack. Most places you will see common fillings such as ground beef, mozzarella cheese, heart of palm, catupiry cream cheese, chicken and shrimp.
