located in a bohemian, historical & difficult access section of Rio. Public transportation by bus takes a long time and a taxi ride is probably best option. I did take the bus, but waited a long time and was unsure where to get off. The Bar do Mineiro Veg option was typical Brazilian fare and was filling, the price was equivalent to 20 U.S. dollars, for one simple serving, but Rio is an expensive dining city so normal by comparison to other restaurants. Food ordered was typical vegetarian feijoada a la carte, it was vegan and very good. Many people drinking excessively, slow service, loud talking and unkept and unsanitary dining room. Rio is a sad and barren city for vegetarians, and this restaurant does not change the fact. The restaurant has a historical interest, in an interesting location, Santa Teresa has maintained a historical landmark interest but too bad the trolley cars no longer go there.
