A collection of traditional bite-sized Brazilian canapés and small snacks from Rogerio’s home.

“You can find these everywhere in Brazil. From bars to high-end events, I think they make great snacks and canapés for drinks parties or as an introduction to a meal. My favourite is Coxinha, I used to eat them on my way to my first job when I was 14 and I still love them today.”

Our Brazilian Canapés

Pao De Queijo
This small, baked cheese roll is a popular snack and breakfast food in Brazil. It’s often sold from the street by vendors carrying them in all manner of containers. Ours are freshly made and delicious!
Acarajé with Vatapá
From the city of Salvador, these crispy little cakes are made with black-eyed peas and onion and stuffed with the wonderfully flavoured vatapá, a mix of seafood, nuts and coconut – very moreish!

A teardrop shaped dough-ball, stuffed with flavoured and shredded chicken. They’re hugely popular in Brazil and appear on every street corner.

Like breaded empanadas – Rissólis dough is rolled out and filled, breaded and then deep fried. Both styles are delicious and at RBK we use an assortment of classic and modern fillings.

Empada de creme de Frango
A cupcake sized pastry that’s crammed with savoury fillings. Unlike regular pie pastry, empadinhas are made with a thick, crumbly pastry and as soon as you take your first bite, the whole thing falls apart with a massive burst of flavour.

Kibe de Carne
Kibe (pronounced “kee-bee”) is a popular Lebanese-style snack in Brazil. A kibe is a football-shaped, deep fried “croquette” of beef and bulgur wheat, seasoned with garlic, onions, mint and cinnamon.

Bolinho de Bacalhau
Theseare Portuguese in origin and if you go to a Portuguese bar in Rio, you’ll see these salt cod bites everywhere! Like pizza in the U.S., they were so heartily adopted that they became a Brazilian food that’s now included in every cookbook, served at every party or reception and pretty much anywhere else that a cold beer is found!

Pastel is a typical Brazilian fast-food dish and one of the most popular Brazilian Canapés. Thin, pastry envelopes are wrapped around an assortment of fillings and then deep fried in vegetable oil for a crisp, golden finish. At RBK, we like to play around with the fillings so it’s always surprising what you’ll find inside…
