i want a/one kilo rice - should be accepted.

This is still not fixed. You can just as well say "one kilo of X" as "one kilogram of X" in English

Brazilian packages come in 5 kg. It's everyday food.

And when they say every day they mean every day. With the same sauce (feijão) too. I'm getting sick of that stuff

I have Asian connections and we buy 50 pound bags and keep it in a rice silo.

Does Portuguese just not use the letter "k"?
