Jason "Off the Broiler" Perlow hits Hamburgão, a Brazilian hamburger joint in Newark, New Jersey. As Perlow says, "Brazilians are quite serious about their junk food. They love to stack sandwiches high with all sorts of toppings you and I might think as weird or excessive — but once you’ve had a Brazilian sandwich, you’re going to be hooked."

The "cheese tudo" sandwich pictured above is essentially a burger piled high with—among other things—fried egg, corn, potato sticks, lettuce, tomato, and mayonnaise.
