The owner of Ramma Cozinha Natural became interested in a meat-free and vegetable and grain-rich diet after suffering from bad headaches in the eighties. Now she serves varied and exciting fresh vegetarian and vegan food at her well-known restaurant. As well as a buffet of cold salads, the menu includes more elaborate dishes like sushi, Arabic and Indian food. Get a taste of Bahia on Fridays when some of Brazil’s typical dishes are cooked up.
