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!

In the business areas or downtown São Paulo, you'll find the delicacies of local street foood. Check out the business streets like Avenida Paulista, Brigadeiro Faria Lima for instance. There are places open only for lunch, where people eat everyday and... more they are also very cheap! They are called Kilo restaurants: just grab a plate, serve from the buffet and pay for the weight! You'll find many around town, there will be a salad selection, then hot dishes, usually two or three meats, chicken selection as well as side dishes. A typical lunchtime favourite is a brown bean stew, the feijao, eaten with rice and on Wendsdays the traditional is the feijoada, a black bean stew with dried meats. Not to miss also for the street food scene is the Praça da Republica (Republic Square): it's located in downtown São Paulo and it's a frentic part of town and also a centre of culture. On weekends you'll find street food vendors; as the second largest concentration of Japanese people outside Tokio lives here so you'll find  yakisoba then typical Brazilian pastel, a rectangular pastry that you can stuff with almost anything; you may try it with a shrimp filling, or chicken with catupiry cheese (Brazilian creamy cheese), or sun dried tomato, sun dried beef or still hearts of palm. It's so exotic!
