"Eat Like A Brazillian" Brazil Local Custom Tip by cwest03

Brazil Local Customs: 174 reviews and 153 photos


Brazillians eat everything with a fork and knife, European style (fork in left hand knife in right). For those of us in the US we may find it strange to watch someone eat a burger this way but that's the way it goes. If you don't want to stick out let your hosts go first and follow their lead. It's kind of fun to try to fit in. In some situations, instead of a for and a knife you might see some people eat with a napkin wrapped around their burger or sandwich. bon appetit.
