brasil -veg food and places.
so like i mentioned before that i usually eat rice+beans and some salad...i do this usually as it is cheaper.I can of course find some great vegetarian restuarants and pay around 5 to 10$ .yes there are places in this range but for me it is a bit expensive.So, another good thing i found in brasil is MIXTO QUENTE...HOT MIXTURE???IT IS sandwich. They put the ingredients you want and you can get one for as low as 2$ +sometimes a free drink. In paraty, there is a cool vegetarian place -every other hotel has a brochure of it as it is the only one but i found another place Called BOUTIQUE DE ACAI. This place is like 3 mins from the RODOVIARIA (pronounced as HODOVIARIA -which means BUS TERMINAL in portuguese).at this place i found that they do a double veg sandwich for 3R$ AND 5 R$ for a double sandwich with integral bread. this place even has milkshakes and great juices. I tried something else here which looks like cupcake but the filling it has ,is of some leaves and a lot of cheese.HMMMM... This place can also do a slice of pizza - Margarita for 3 R$ i believe.
it was great.
Paraty is only 2 Hrs from Rio de Janeiro and 6hrs from Sao paulo.It is a very charming small town. Colonial houses +a beach +it is also a great base to go to nearby Beaches like Trinidade, Praia de Sono and also a Cachaca Distillery and great waterfalls.
P.S. before i forget...found this great restaurant there it is called AMAREILO-which means yellow in portugese (opposite best burger..ehhehehe.)here you can eat as much as you want for 9.90R$. this place has a buffet.Of course it has meat and all but everything is in a separate bowl...but the vegetable salad there...hmmmmm,fresh...beans -delicious, noodles, rice.HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
ENJOY YOURSELF IN PARATY. ANYWAYS,I WORKED IN A HOSTEL CALLED GEKO HOSTEL AND MISTI CHILL @ PRAIA DE PONTAL ,PARATY. These 2 hostels have dorm room starting at 19R$ and i wanted to highlight GEKO the breakfast there is mind blowing and included in the price. fresh fruit + fresh juice (at least as i know so far.)
