Brazilians sure do know how to party. They host one of the most raucous events of the year during this month’s Carnival of Brazil, where food, dancing, music and wild parades fill the streets in celebration for days on end.
To celebrate our Brazilian heritage, cuisine and culture at this special time of year, Temaki House introduces a new item on its menu, The Bauru, a classic Brazilian sandwich. Available to order daily or as part of our catering services, this traditional Brazilian grub features high-quality roast beef served on a fresh baguette with tomatoes, pickles and a secret blend of four cheeses.
History of The Bauru
As popular in Brazil as the BLT is in the U.S., The Bauru got its name in honor of the city of Bauru, located in the State of São Paulo, Brazil. In the mid-1930s, a law student from Bauru walked into his favorite eatery in São Paulo and asked the cook to make the sandwich just for him. He named it in honor of his hometown, and The Bauru quickly gained popularity among the local elite.
More than 80 years later, The Bauru remains a classic at most Brazilian eateries. Treat guests to this delectable fare from Temaki House at your next party, wedding or special event. If it’s just a party, give us 24 hours to prepare the food and provide catering services. If it’s a larger event, such as a spring or summer wedding, we’ll need at least a week’s notice to get the food ready and line up servers.
