portuguese is an awesome language, and pretty easy to learn.

Hello, exclusive vegan wise there is not much. However there are several restaurants with both vegetarian/vegan options. As for groceries I constantly read about vegan food I can't seem to find here, but I manage as I go along.

As for price, it all depends on how much you're eating and how many courses, just the main course, or also dessert and entrees, drinks.

I will leave you some restaurant websites:

And here you can find a list of vegetarian restaurants by city:

This is a good list although in Portuguese, but great care is always required to be sure they have vegan options.
