Rua das Laranjeiras 15, Pelourinho, Salvador, Brazil
Cuisine: Vegan-friendly, Lacto, Ovo, International, Western, Beer/Wine, Non-veg
Serves meat, vegan options available. Sister restaurant of the Galeria 13 hostel, which is often closed.

Just ask the English-speaking staff for any help. Their "amazing-and-crazy-hot" chilli sauce doesn't contain fish, nor does their Thai sauce.

Many appetizers and main courses for vegetarians, and several for vegans.
