We have an awesome guest host with us, she’s also a YouTuber She’s from Brazil And she’s going to show us around her favorite spots in this neighborhood We’re going to be eating a lot of good food Hope you’re hungry Hi guys, welcome to Astoria My name is Martha Sachser I’m Brazilian and I’ve been living here for about 7 years I believe And Astoria is my home Many Brazilians live here You will find many restaurants, supermarkets Bakeries And I want to take you guys to explore some of my favorite spots here in Astoria Alright Martha we are starting this tour at the Rio Market A Brazilian Supermarket What makes this place so cool Whenever I miss Brazilian food.. I come here Not only to eat fresh food But also to buy cookies Desserts Sweets, Pastries, everything to take home So I have plenty of Brazilian food for the rest of the month So it’s my favorite spot for everything Brazilian This is the Brazilian corner You will find other Brazilian products throughout the store But this is where you find all the good stuff Like all the cookies And things we’re very proud of The famous Brazilian Flip-Flops I think I bought some of these when I was in Rio actually You can find them here very special Styles.. Limited editions So it’s really cool Which one is your favorite? Which one would you buy? I love the one with the Brazilian Flag Just because it’s cool I see a lot of people wearing them. They’re not Brazilian.. So.. it makes me happy Okay so if you come to a Brazilian supermarket You want to buy snacks And these are some of my favorites These are Fandangos I think they have similar things here Like Elmo Chips and stuff.. But this is very Brazilian And also Biscoito.. they have different flavors But the original one is the best in my opinion So you’ve gotta.. try it They kind of look like little peanuts Yeah.. it’s very crunchy It’s delicious You can eat the entire bag in like 10 minutes What is this? This is tomato sauce? It’s Tomato Sauce It’s the elephant one The elephant tomato sauce This is Pao de Queijo The most popular thing in Brazil Food. You can eat it for breakfast, for lunch, for a snack For dinner For whenever you’re craving something good And it’s made of cheese But also made of 2 different kinds of flours So.. You must have this in Brazil And you can buy a bunch of Pao de Queijo
What do you call it Mix? To make it at home More paion de queijo
Pon de queijo We need some work on my Portugeuse Everywhere You guys are obsessed you’re right Every day for lunch We have rice and beans Every single day Lunch and dinner sometimes So this is where the good stuff is You’ll find Coixina I don’t know how to explain It has chicken inside I just showed you.. You will also find pastel Which is similar to Empanadas But better I’m kidding So you find all the good stuff here At. the.. you know here I don’t know how to explain it Guarana which.. I drank a lot of when I was in Brazil
And I don’t know if I’ve had any in the last.. 10 years It tastes just like I remembered it It’s very good This is Coxinha How do you call this Like a dough.. A pastry.. ? It’s a chicken inside And sometimes it comes with cheese Like cream cheese And sometimes no.. And this is pastel.. And it’s kind of like Empanada It’s kind of like empanada Brazilian style empanada Beef and cheese No this is chicken and cheese Chicken and cheese Let’s do it over Chicken, cheese.. looks delicious It’s fried Doughy Let’s take a bite It’s crunchy I like how doughy it is in the center And then you get to the chicken It’s a nice snack I think if I had two or three of these I could probably call this a meal We serve them at birthday parties Birthday parties Like a smaller version.. This would be the perfect spread for like the super bowl Forget your nachos and cheese I’m just going to go with this.. In February.. and Guarana And Guarana Maybe mixed with some alcohol though.. I don’t know… I want you to explain to everyone how little Brazil isn’t like .. let’s say Chinatown where every single shop Is Chinese But this is very spread out.. It’s not like only one location And all the businesses are Brazilian
But that’s where most Brazilians live in New York I mean the largest group of Brazilians So.. yeah.. There’s more than a dozen Brazilian spots all srpead around through Astoria We’ll show you some of her favorites Alright we’ve made it stop number 2 Pao De Quiejo I’m going to pronounce that right eventually If you want to try authentic Pao De Queijo And it is you favorite Brazilian food right Yes.. you have to come here If you want to try authentic pao De Queijo So right here we have Pao De Queijo It’s one of the most traditional best foods in Brazil And we eat it for breakfast.. For snack And birthday parties Any time of the day that you want And if you don’t like it. If you try it and don’t like it We probably don’t allow you in Brazil I’m just kidding.. But I’m sure you’re going to like it.. So cheesebread Very traditional Brazilian I haven’t had this in so long But.. I know what it is Mmmm Okay Brazil can accept me Very savory Nice and doughy Soft in the middle A litlte harder on the outside 7 of these for $3.00 I could probably eat 50 So.. when I became vegan Pao de Queijo was the one thing.. the hardest thing for me to give up Until I found out that.. there is vegan cheese Available in the market It was the first thing that came to my mind I’m going to live without cheese bread So.. my favorite food in Brazil And it’s from Minas My state so.. I love it I keep saying I’m going to put this away And bring it to Adriana And we have 3 left.. and.. Sorry Adriana Sorry Adriana.. You know people are going to make fun of me for this I ate just about every Pao De Queijo in here I think I got it I think i got the pronunciation right And we are going to our third stop Because there’s going to be so much food We couldn’t more in here right.. We have a buffet coming up? Yeah.. It’s going to be good It’s going to be good guys You ready lets go? We walked by the front door and I smelled meat The second we walked by Just the odor of meat And I’m already hungry This is one of your favorite places right? Yes, perfect for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It’s very convenient by the subway So it’s another.. it’s a different atmosphere Of Astoria also The vibe So.. it’s one of my favorites Alright guys I smell the meat let’s go So this is a traditional Brazilian buffet We have rice and beans of course A bunch of meat And also a great salad bar But if you want.. if you feel like having a Brazilian Churrasco Which is Brazilian BBQ You go to the back And they have an amazing Churrasco spot And it’s 8.99 a pound if you want to include a Churrasco Or 7.99 a pound for this buffet over here Guys I have to admit They have some really healthy options here It’s not your typical buffet They’ve got quinoa They have salmon That was the first thing that jumped out to me How sweet potato The healthy choices they have But if you’re anything like me You’re here for the Brazilian BBQ And I saw this stuff hanging on skewers Thats what I’m going to be getting for sure We have top sirloin And skirt steak This is what I’m most interested in I’ve been to Brazilian Steakhouses Brazilian all you can eat places Where they.. carve it right in front of you so.. I like that touch here Where you can go order whatever you want And just add it onto the price of your buffet Let’s try some top sirloin Very tender, i like this a lot Also just the right amount of salt I’ve had problems at steakhouses in the past Where’s there’s just to much salt on the meat Not an issue here But I really love this top sirloin If you come here.. This has got to be your pick But I missed the Brazilian community so much So I tried to live as close as possible.. so Astoria is a perfect mix for.. You know New York and Brazil Why don’t you show everyone your super healthy meal? This is Acai Very popular in the world But it’s a Brazilian thing especially It’s really good They blend it with Guarana So.. Speechless? I don’t want to .. get food.. Jon wanted to have a tradtiional Brazilian experience Like a meal I asked the people here What would be the great.. best option for juice So they brought the juice to the table And he doesn’t know what it is So.. you have to guess Ready? I’m so excited Okay, ready? I don’t know.. It tastes like vegetables Is it beets? Is it beets? I knew it Most Brzazilian restaurants You will find at least orange or lemonade Or in this case Beets, Orange, and Carrots.
