Pastel. Sao Paulo's (South East of Brazil) favourite street food! It is a deep-fried pastry that can be filled with basically anything. The most common are: minced meat; cheese; ham and cheese; tomato, cheese and oregano; chicken and creamy cheese; carne seca (typical Brazilian "dried meat"); "doce de leite" (creamy sweet made of milk and sugar. Kind of a creamy fudge); banana; chocolate and strawberries. If you go to Rio de Janeiro, Bar do Adão has an impressive variety of these in their menu.
