Is this just one guy with a vision, or is this a real tradition or trend I haven't caught on to until now?
Some of the choices include:
- Potato sticks. Not on the plate--as part of the sandwich itself.
- Corn kernels on a lot of the offerings--again as part of the sandwich itself.
- A very flavorful kind of "Brazilian" cream cheese, as a condiment. It's apparent called catupiry, since this same cream cheese is also used inside several of the Meat-filled pastries they sell and "catupiry" is in the name of all of them.
- Eggs. Not on all of the sandwiches, but a lot of them.
Please note that my knowledge of Brazilian cuisine, up till now, has been pretty much limited to churrasco-rodizio.
