70. Vegan food in Rio

Olympic games are currently in progress in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. At least some of the tourists who are visiting the city for the Olympics would be vegetarians. They would be having tough time in Rio, as it is not easy to locate good quality vegetarian food there. For such people, I have discovered a vegan restaurant which serves excellent food at very reasonable rates. Caminho do Mar is located in Estrada da Pontal, Recreio- at walking distance from some of the magnificent beaches of Rio. I was looking at their Facebook page and it is no surprise that customers have given them rave reviews.

The person who served us food at the restaurant was Hugo, an 18 year old smart and handsome boy. While chatting with him, we found that he was a deeply spiritual person. Under spiritual influence, he decided to turn vegan, but found it close to impossible to get good vegetarian food in Rio. About 6 months back, he discovered this restaurant and liked the food and the ambiance so much that he decided to work here. He has not moved from here since.

Hugo is exposed to the knowledge of Ayurveda and would like to visit India in near future. We gave him our contact details for any help or guidance he may require in this connection. By the way, do you know the meaning of Hugo? He himself told us with a broad smile, it means Brazil.
