Pastéis are a Brazilian street food delicacy. These fried pastries are often sold filled with various savory fillings like cheese, chicken, shrimp, hearts of palm, or ground beef. Pastelaria Vitoria is a pastel shop in Somerville which has a very large Brazilian community. In addition to this pastel shop it has numerous Brazilian markets and restaurants.
