The History of The Brazilian Burger
The hamburger is one of the most popular sandwiches worldwide. Connect Brazil’s summertime guide is ready to help you find the best Brazilian Bites and Burgers.
The ubiquitous burger is an all-American staple, and despite its hamburger moniker (perhaps in tribute to the city of Hamburg, Germany), burgers are about as American as it gets.
And guess where America took its burger?
Brazilian Bites and Burgers: The Story of Bob’s Burgers
The hamburger arrived in Brazil when America’s Wimbledon-winning tennis player Robert Falkeburg moved to Copacabana to open the first Bob’s hamburger store in 1952.
That early menu also included sundaes and milkshakes and Bob’s Burgers instantly became a favorite Brazilian food hotspot for Cariocas and tourists. McDonald’s soon followed to mark the official arrival of ‘fast food’ in Brazil.
And that’s pretty much where things stood with burgers in Brazil for decades (and if you’re wondering, late-night, room service burgers from a five-star in Sao Paulo definitely do not count!).
On the heels of a Brazilian Food trend
Things slowly began to change with the American arrival of Brazilian Steakhouses (Churrascarias) like Plataforma in New York and early Brazilian BBQ chains including Porcão.
The Brazilian idea of endless skewered grilled meats cut and served right at your table caught on and today most cities can lay claim to at least one or more Brazilian Steakhouses nearby.
So many in fact, that competition forced the less popular Churrascarias to close. Then, Brazilian Food entrepreneurs began to rethink their approach to Brazilian eateries in the USA.
A wave of new, more casual Brazilian restaurants is beginning to make its presence felt, and Brazilian burgers are a natural fit.
We have your next burger right here:
Today’s Brazilian burgers run the gamut, from deliciously simple to multi-level burgers so elaborate that they are not for the faint of heart. Many are Brazilian food trendsetters: did you know that serving a burger with a fried egg on top is a decades-old Brazilian tradition?
