America is the land of burgers… and so is Brazil!!! Huh? To be more specific: Brazil is the land of the X-Tudo — a hamburger on Steroids!!!! And X-Tudo (pronounced: sheess-TOO-doo) is what I have for you today! How about that?
X-Tudo (translated as ‘cheese-everything’) is a TALL burger with many toppings. In fact, x-tudo is so tall that you can’t get your mouth, no matter how big, around the whole burger. Yes, eating a x-tudo is a fun, deliciously messy experience which one must have at least once in life… It is so good that it makes every single calorie consumed worthwhile. Just like any other burger, x-tudo is about taste — not aesthetics…
In Brazil, X-tudo is available at snack bars and on the streets. There are many variations of x-tudo e.g.: X-Caipira (sausage, egg, tomato, and onion), X-Salada (hamburger patty, cheese, lettuce, and tomato), X-Bacon (hamburger patty, cheese, bacon, lettuce, and tomato), X-Frango (chicken breast, cheese, lettuce, and tomato), etc… But my favorite is still the classic which is pretty much composed of a juicy hamburger patty, melted cheese, fried egg, deli ham, bacon, corn, lettuce, tomato, and shoestring potatoes — all sandwiched between a burger bun. 🙂 It is often eaten with mayonnaise, ketchup, and mustard.
Does it sound good to you? Well, the good news is that you don’t need to travel to Brazil to eat x-tudo. FBTY bought it directly to you!
Have a ball eating my classic X-Tudo!
