In a Darth Vader paternity test-level surprise, the pão de queijo is not the thing to get at this all-day spot in Astoria. Instead, your focus should be on the burger. Since there are 15 burgers on the very long menu, we’ll specify that the X Brazil needs to be part of your order. Between multiple layers of juicy picanha, there are pieces of salty linguica and crispy bacon, as well as cheese, corn, and a fried egg. Split one, along with the massive, thick-shelled coxinha filled with cheese and chicken, at a table on the streetside patio out front.
