I thought it was time I updated my Happycow review from 2008. This place remains one of my absolute favourite places in Sao Paulo. It's heavy on the fake meat and many dishes have Asian influences, it's generally less healthy than Apfel or Nutrissom - and all the better for it ;) Unlike the other two it's R$34 per-kilo rather than unlimited, so better for smaller eaters. Having said that, I'm a big boy with a big appetite, and I spend about the same in total at all three places. I can't decide of the three which is my favourite, which is why I always visit all three whenever I'm in town. Make sure you make it to this one though, it's unusual and excellent. A skip and a jump from Luz station, take R. Brig. Tobias exit, turn right, and it's a few blocks down, diagonally across the main junction intersection.

Pros: Excellent food, Fake meat, All vegetarian
Cons: Location, Not cheap, Lunchtimes only

Maybe the best vegetarian restaurant in São Paulo.
It has a wide varied of food, many vegan options and they indicate what has eggs am milk.
Some dishes has to much sugar and strange taste or sauce, maybe it's Asians style...

Pros: Wide varied, Many vegan options, Taste

I love this place. I am vegetarian but have brought several non-veg folks here and nobody comes close to disliking it, some even request it when they're in town. Lots of variety, some sushi and other Japanese options. There are some traditional Brasilian options. It's a buffet-style lunch-only per-kilo vegetarian's delight. While the theme is predominately Asian with offerings such as berinjela agri-doce (one of my favourites), mixed vegetable curry, and more, they also have soy meatballs, chix nuggets (remember, everything is veg), fish, pastels, and many more. They have a full dessert offering, soups, and salads. The service (except the cashiers) is very good and the price is average for downtown Sao Paulo (as of this writing, Mon-Fri is about R$32/kg). Saturdays are slightly higher. Bargain hunters can go in from 14:30-15:00, just before closing, for a small discount.

This is the best, most colorful vegetarian restaurant in Sao Paulo. Buffet style lunch, with many Taiwan and Brazilian dishes - and several vegan options. Excellent!
