Salvador Shopping, Av. Tancredo Neves, 2915, Salvador, Brazil, 41820-021

Serves meat, vegan options available. A chain restaurant found in many shopping malls whose menu has gradually increased its mix of veggie items, now with items on the Portuguese-only menu marked vegan and ovo-lacto vegetarian. Originally a creperie, it now also sells 2 types of vegan sushi, Mexican food including a vegan quesadilla made with soya protein and "tofupiry," a vegan version of the Brazilian cream cheese specialty catupiry plus a buffet with items colour-coded: green is vegan, blue vegetarian and red non-veg. A vegan burger with all the trimmings is also on the menu. One of the crepes is marked vegan. Extensive juice bar. Open Mon-Sat 12:00pm-10:30pm, Sun 12:00pm-9:00pm.

Great veggie options at this chain restaurant - Edit

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
