That’s what this beast of a burger is called. X- Tudo, Brazilian- Portuguese literally translating to CHEESE- EVERYTHING in English. How could I not eat a burger that stands for cheese and everything good in this world?
The “everything” in this burger consists of a beef burger, fried egg, slice of ham, tomato, lettuce, fried potato sticks, bacon, mayo, sometimes peas, and a potato bun. Of course, there’s cheese in there.
This particular X- Tudo was good, but the beef burger patty was a little dry that day.
You can find this gem of a sandwich at almost any Brazilian Café. It can even be a X- Frango or X- Galinha (w/ chicken). There are tons of variations. I had this one from Pastelaria Vitoria Broadway on Broadway in Somerville, MA. There are a few good Brazilian restaurants in Somerville, but this is the place I most frequently visit for a X- Tudo or for a coxinha…
THE COXINHA (com catupiry)
Coxinha’s are one of my favorite Brazilian treats. It’s basically a big fried shredded chicken ball with an option of catupiry inside, this cream cheese- like filling. I probably described that poorly (my apologies). I wish I had a better coxinha photo for you, maybe with it cut in half so you could see the goodness inside!
