Come to São Paulo and taste our Esfiha

Sfiha (Arabic: صفيحة‎ sfīḥah), is a pie-like dish originating from the Levant, specifically Baalbek, Lebanon, but it is also known in Turkey as pide.

It was introduced in Brazil and Argentina by Levantine immigrants, where it is known as esfiha or esfirra

In contrast to the modern use of lamb or beef, traditional sfiha are open-faced meat pies made with ground mutton. Historically, sfiha were much like dolma—simply ground lamb, lightly spiced, wrapped in brined grape leaves.

In Brazil, sfihas are street popular food because they're cheap and fast. Sfihas are oven baked, come in two shapes: folded into a triangular pastry like fatayer, and open-faced (4 inches round flat bread); with various toppings, including cheese, curd, lamb, beef or vegetables.
