Full of vegan options - Edit

Pay-per-kilo buffet offering a wide variety of vegan options of salads, hot dishes and desserts. It has vegan versions of regional dishes, such as moqueca and sururu. Delicious vegan options and amazing desserts, but it is crowded (and the replacement is not fast) and pricey.

Pros: Good taste, Variety, Clean ambiance

Cons: Crowded, Pricey, Slow replacement

Excelent options, though pricy. - Edit

Since one of the owners went vegan and the other remained omnivorous, the food line represents their compromise: half vegan, half meat-based. Within their vegan options, the traditional salads don't surprise much, but the other vegan section, composed of hot dishes, demonstrates creativity and resourcefulness for an emerging veg*n clientele like Recife's locals. My favorite: fake shrimp pie, fake crab pie, banana beef, and their exquisite lentil-based meatballs. They also serve vegan deserts, and their rich chocolate cake draws in quite the crowd.
Don't forget to stop by their patio for some free espresso after you've paid or while you're waiting for someone!
