Eating #style of #brazilians ☺ #brazil #food

A post shared by Lingofacts (@lingofacts) on

Brazilians eat in the continental style, with the knife held in the right hand and fork remaining in the left. People wash their hands before eating and refrain from touching food while eating. One’s mouth is wiped each time before drinking. After-meal conversation often takes place over a cup of strong cafezinho (black coffee).

In restaurants, the waiter is called by holding up the index finger or by softly saying garçon. The check is requested with the phrase A conta, por favor. While the tip is usually included in the bill, extra change may be left, and if the tip is not in the bill, 10 to 15 percent is customary.
