Vegan Feijoada - Edit

If you go to Santa Teresa only to eat at this place, you will be disappointed. Santa Teresa is my favourite place in Rio and where I used to live, but I am not supposed to write a review about a beautiful neighborhood. Bar do Mineiro used to be a local bar which served quality food to a good price. Today it is a tourist trap. If you go to Santa Teresa to enjoy the artistic environment and the art galleries, have lunch, or dinner, at Bar do Mineiro, because it is actually the only restaurants that serves a vegan feijoada in this area. It is also a great option if your friends are carnivores!

only restaurant listed here for Sunday pm - Edit

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.

A bit of tradition - Edit

This restaurant is perfect to go with meat eaters friends who cant eat any veggie... They can eat their feijoada, and you can have a vegetarian version of it. They dont only make a vegetarian version. They searched all recipes and took the feijoada nordestina, which originally is made with brown beans and zucchini, carrots and lady finger replacing the meat. The farofa is still there, as the couve and cachaças. One of the few vegetarian options at the traditional region of Santa Teresa.

Pros: excellent food, nice vibe, friendly staff

Cons: noisy, crowded
