Bolo do caco is a flat, circular bread, shaped like a cake and thus called bolo (Portuguese for 'cake'). It is traditionally cooked on a caco, a flat basalt stone slab. The bread is usually served with garlic butter,[1] or eaten as a sandwich with octopus, espetada, milho frito or as a prego (steak) sandwich.
