Pastel is a Brazilian fried snack which looks like a deep fried pastry. There are lots of variation for the fillings and it is fried just after you order. Be careful not to burn your tongue! People eat it with molho which is like salsa. They put molho on the pastel at each bite.
I got a pastel with beef and cheese fillings at a feira (market) and brought it back home. It is as big as a postcard. It is not stuffed too much and it tastes lighter than I expected, but it was enough for me to survive until lunch time.
