Coxinha is the face of São Paulo street food. This rain-drop shape, deep-fried heaven is traditionally made with chicken, but you can find many variations. Frango com catupiry (chicken with catupiry) is by far my favorite, and if you’re not vegetarian, you should definitely try it. Coxinhas are best enjoyed on an easy afternoon with a cold beer, sitting outside of a boteco with friends. The term ‘coxinha’ is commonly used to describe right wing supporters in Brazil, so don’t get confused if you hear the word used in different contexts.
