The Stall

And this is tapioca, a dish that originated with Brazil’s indigenous population. It’s made of starch extracted from the cassava root, it’s turned into a kind of crepe and filled with various fillings, both sweet and savory.

Here at the Tapioca King Snack Bar, it’s offered in forty-eight (48) varieties, most of them were invented by Jose Valdo.

The Owner

Jose Valdo, Owner: “I present the customers with a new combination every day. They like them, so that’s why we have so many varieties today.”

Tapioca is the name of both the cassava starch and the finished dish.

Arianna shows us how to make a tapioca.
Arianna, Tapioca Cook: This chopped dried meat. This is cassava puree. Tomatoes. And it’s finished off with butter and oregano.”

The tapioca is served folded over.

The Customers

And how do the customers like it?

Customer, Female: “Strawberries with sweetened, condensed milk tastes great.”

Customer, Male: “I came here especially to try it. The quality is very good.”

And by the way, the snack-bar stays open until seven am, on certain holidays.

Yams. Was the pedestrian mall empty and deserted, or full of people? Were they wearing jackets, sweaters and trousers (pant)?

Coffee, Chocolate, Vanilla. Did the video feature an ice-cream stall?

Pineapple. The Tapioca King Snack Bar offers three kinds of tapioca crepes, chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. Is this right or wrong? Did the owner learn about the different types of crepes from a cookbook (recipe book)?

Sugar Cane. Is the pocket or outer part of the tapioca made of wheat flour and filled with tapioca puree inside? Did the video show Arianna eating a tapioca?
