If in doubt, use cutlery! Brazilians generally eat pizza, chicken, fruit, and sandwiches with a knife and/or fork. On the rare occasions that you eat food with the hands, you should wrap a napkin around it.

Eating in public is rude. Don't walk through the streets with a take-away; use the tables provided, or stand nearby to finish your food.

In a restaurant be sure to greet the people who work there as well as those who are waiting at your table.

Meals can take a long time in Brazil.
