Muito bom.

As opções veganas são de muita qualidade no quesito sabor e ingredientes muito bem selecionados. Eles especificam no cardápio com cautela, facilitando a escolha 100% vegana. Tem opções veganas variadas. Excelente!

Pros: Muitas opções veganas bem especificadas

Bom com ressalvas

É um ótimo restaurante e tem opções veganas (recomendo a quesadilla), mas todas as vezes em que comi shimeji, não gostei do preparo dele. Já experimentei em várias unidades e no delivery e ainda não consigo gostar da forma como preparam o shimeji. No entanto, é uma boa opção para veganos.

It's a great restaurant and has vegan options (I recommend the quesadilla), but every time I ate shimeji, I didn't like the preparation. I have tried it in several units and in delivery and still can not like the way they prepare shimeji. However, it is a good option for vegans.

Pros: Boas opções veganas / good vegan options, Happy hour

Cons: O preparo do shimeji / the preparation of shimeji

Great veggie options at this chain restaurant

There are eight branches of Mariposa in Salvador and a few more dotted around the northeast of Brazil. I've been coming since my first visit to Salvador in 2008, and in that time have seen their vegetarian and vegan options expand to the point that they now even have vegan soy meat quesadillas complete with vegan soft cheese, which was quite excellent. On this trip I went four times in five days, and loved every visit. It started as a creperie, it now has far more options - at this branch, lunchtimes they have an excellent buffet where items are labelled green for vegan, blue for vegetarian, and red for non-vegetarian - the vast majority is vegan, you can also optionally pimp your buffet with two vegan burgers. Great juices too. I spoke to the manager about their vegetarian options, apparently one of the owners is vegetarian which is why they have such a decent selection.

Pros: Lots of veggie options, Vegan quesadilla, Juice bar
