Brazilian Street Eats: Coxinha (Little Thigh)


You can find these filling finger eats just about everywhere in Brazil. I found these at a food stand called Cafe Paris in the Vitoria Hospital while waiting to get a yearly physical done for work and an open air food stand in downtown Vitoria. The are called coxinha which translate to mean “little thigh” and takes its name because its shaped like a little chicken thigh. The dough is made with wheat flour, usually filled with spiced chicken and deep fried.
