Filled with all sorts of delicious flavours ranging from meat, cheese, or even fruit and chocolate, these have to be tasted to be believed. Another popular type of street food is the coxinha, a fried and breaded pastry with chicken and cheese filling, and you can’t leave your holiday in Sao Paulo without tasting a mortadella sandwich. The mortadella sausage is actually Italian but is supremely popular here in Brazil and you can try these at the Municipal Market in Central Sao Paulo.

What to bring from Sao Paulo?
Because Sao Paulo is such a diverse city, you will struggle to find the identikit souvenirs that most large cities seem to have. This is a fantastic opportunity to buy typically Brazilian items that will be totally evocative of your great holiday in Sao Paulo once you return home. If you visit Rua 25 de Marco you will be able to take your pick from many shops selling all manner of gifts. From carnival costumes to football kit, these shops stock everything, and hammocks are a particularly good buy as they are far more expensive outside Brazil.
