Food In Brazil

The country of samba, football and Carnival is one of the great destinations of South America to go shopping. Rich in artisan products - where wood, clay, stone and lace are abundant - Brazil is full of exclusive products and design for all tastes. This is where the popular Havaianas were born, the sandals that became fashionable in the 90s and that years later have gained international recognition.

Pareos, gaucho hats and T-shirts are some of the items that can be found in the markets of Ipanema or the popular Copacabana. In terms of jewellery, Brazil has numerous mines where a variety of precious stones are extracted. Quartz, emerald or beryl can be found in many of the country's jewelry. Although, undoubtedly, one of the most common purchases is the legendary shirt of the national soccer team, present in almost all stores in the country.

Although Brazil is not a particularly cheap country, its great diversity will make shopping enjoying. Some cities such as Rio de Janeiro, Salvador de Bahia and São Paulo have large avenues and shopping centers.


Beijinho de coco

Beijinho de coco

Translated as "Coconut Kiss", the beijinho is one of the most delicious Brazilian desserts in the country. It consists of small balls of chocolate, made from condensed milk, butter and coconut. The mixture is cooked over a medium heat to achieve the perfect texture. The mixture is rolled into balls and covered in fine pieces of coconut to create a bite-size sweet treat!  



It is the national dish of Brazil, so it can be found in most restaurants in the country. Originally from Rio de Janeiro, the feijoada is a stew that contains black beans, meat (usually pork) and rice. In some kitchens they also accompany it with fried plantain, chopped cabbage, oranges, cassava flour, eggs and sausage. Although this dish can be consumed any day of the week, the days where they are present in all the menus are usually on Wednesdays and Saturdays.



This Brazilian dessert has its origin in Portuguese cuisine, where its main ingredient: egg yolk, is one of the basics of the country. The incorporation of the coconut, however, is believed to have been brought by the slaves who were sent from Africa to the country in the 17th century. To get that intense yellow color, in addition, dyes are used.
