A vegan oasis in Rio de Janeiro
Posted on 01 / 25 / 2014
Vegana Chacara is simply awesome! Located at the end of a small dead end street in Botafogo, with no sign, you might wonder if you're stepping into someone's private yard when you lift the latch on the gate. Inside you're greeted by friendly staff and can sit either outside in the lush garden, or inside. There are two plates of the day, varying by day, and each consists of a soup or salad, followed by a main plate with several different portions on it. The food was excellent, and substantial servings to boot. Desert is also included in your 30 Reais (about $15), and the warm banana torte is a home run. Payment is cash only, in an honor system box, and don't forget to tip your server separately. Lunch only, until 2:30 PM. If you are looking for vegan or veg food in Rio, this gem is well worth seeking out!
