Not worthy - Edit

Actually there is only one vegan option and it is not worthy. Really frustrating.

Pastel and churros - Edit

They have the tipical brazilian snack - Pastel which are really good and a brazilian version of the spanish churros vegan. However the filling its not good of the churros just the pastry, Besides that it is the place in Augusta to try Caldo de Cana- sugar cane juice.

Pros: Cheap, Taste

Cons: Same oil as the other pastéis.

All right, but just all right - Edit

I had a vegan ‘presunto e queijo’ (ham and cheese) pastel, and while it was perfectly fine and tasted all right, it was nothing special. I’ve had better pastéis in Brazil with only cheese (though admittedly those have been with milk cheese, not soy cheese).

The pastéis were more expensive than in regular pastelerias, but not by an insane amount (most were R$ 7.50 [around $2] apiece, where they would normally be R$ 5–6).

As the previous reviewer mentions, there is only one vat of oil being used to fry all the pastéis, including the ones with meat (and I couldn’t find anywhere that mentioned what type of oil it is). I’m not fussy in that regard, but people who are serious about being completely vegan may want to look elsewhere, as it means their vegan pastéis are not actually vegan (or vegetarian) at all.

Pros: All right pastéis

Cons: Not actually veg*an due to oil used

All fried in the same oil - Edit

Owned by the guy that owns Hot Dog Augusta, which has lots of vegetarian and vegan options. And this place has proper vegan pastels. However it's all fried in the same oil as meat pastels. And whilst they're unlikely to burst, I still felt uncomfortable eating one.

Pros: That it exists

Cons: Same oil as meat pastels
