Rua Sao Jose, 86, Sobreloja, Centro (at Rua Rodrigo SIlva), Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, 20010-020

An ala carte lacto vegetarian Hare Krishna restaurant. Indian cuisine and decoration. A vegan feijoada, a traditional Brazilian dish with black beans, sprouts, orange, lettuce and smoked tofu, is available on Fridays. Most other days there are no vegan dishes as they put ghee in the majority of items. Open Mon-Fri 11:30am-3:30pm. Closed Sun-Mon.

Milk derivatives almost everywhere - Edit

Some days of week there is no vegan option.
WCs have words in some Indian language which is difficult to identify "men" and "women".
If you want to take some free tea, ask what of them has milk.
