Food in Portuguese

Oi! Tudo bom?  Welcome to the Rocket Portuguese Lesson on a topic that’s sure to get your mouth watering - food!  Today we’re going to learn some of the most common words for food items in Portuguese.

It’s important to know some basic vocabulary for food when traveling in a Portuguese-speaking country.  You’ll find it handy when going out to eat or when shopping for food in a market.  Talk about what you like, ‘Eu gosto de_____’, what you don’t like ‘Eu não gosto de ______’, or perhaps you have a food allergy you need to tell your waiter about, ‘Sou alérgico a ______’. Let’s tuck in to this lesson!

Pronouncing food in Portuguese

I hope you enjoyed this lesson!  I don’t know about you, but I am ready to tuck into um sanduíche!  Next time you need to go grocery shopping or find out what kind of ingredients are in the food at a restaurant, you’ll be equipped with this vocabulary to help you along. 

Bom apetite!
