AN EDIBLE PASTEL
It´s a flour-based dough (some of the recipes include cachaça), envelope-shaped, with most different fillings (salty or sweet) and it is deep-fried. It is one of the most common and democratic Brazilian-made delicacies. You can find them in any street markets, but in São Paulo city it is something cultural: especially sunday mornings, it is a must do. To drink, ask for a sugar cane juice on the rocks, with some drops of lemon juice, or ananas.
