Petisco Brazuca

We don’t need to work hard to convince you that deep fried balls of cheese are going to make you happy for at least four to six hours, so we’ll just tell you where to get this particular variety. Petisco Brazuca is a snack counter in Bed-Stuy that sells Brazilian coxinhas: crispy, teardrop-shaped croquettes filled with things like chicken, spinach, and dulce de leche. Order six or 10 pieces and some fresh juice at the take-out only counter, and expect to wait about ten minutes to get your cup of piping hot coxinhas—and then another five before they’re cool enough to eat without burning your tongue.
