São Paulo Food & Wine : Street Food
In Sao Paulo street food is a big hit! Check out Galeria dos Paes in Jardim America for lunch, desserts, and salgados. Try the savories (salgados), esfihas, and pasteis: they are addictive.
You'll find them at every hole in the wall as you walk down the street, along with fresh juices (passionfruit, mamey, caju etc.) made with pure sugar cane juice as sweetener. Try the acai. Start with the coxinha (chicken croquette).
As for drinks' greatest hits, Brasil A Gosto has a starfruit caipirinha that is sublime, and their celeb chef speaks perfect english if you aren't a portuguese speaker.The passionfruit caipirinha at Colher de Pau will blow your mind! Then Brazilian tap beers are fantastic along with their canned selections. Try Devassa! Then you might give a go to churascarrias, the best probably being Fogo de Chao and Barbacoa.
Brazilians don't gorge themselves, so lanchonetes serve modest plates, with salgadinhos, pratos feitos, amazing fresh juice, you will find great food that will amaze! Still as for street food, try a Milho Verde (green corn on the cob) or a fresh coconut. You can find this downtown. For paderia, go back to Galeria dos Paes!
