Outback Steakhouse...endearingly called Ouchie Backie (portuguese pronunciation). It really hits the spot when you are feeling homesick. The hamburgers taste like home, and free refills!!! http://www.outback.com.br/restaurantes/sao-jose-dos-campos#
Mandioquinhas! I will miss these when I return home someday. Mandioquinhas are a little like a potatoe, but sooo much better. I love them fried, mashed or roast with olive oil. They have a great flavor unlike anything I've had before and the edges get crisp and almost caramelized when roasted. I'm on a huge Mandioquinha kick right now!
