Kind of floaty vegetarian loving type people, is exactly what we encountered in the Kama Tea Hub next door to our guesthouse. A lovely faced, late 20 something girl greeted us with a friendly smile, gave us a beautiful handmade menu cum photograph album and told us not to be afraid to ask questions. The… Continue reading Kama, Kama, Kama..Riga, Latvia
Our travels South brought us to Prague which, with its ever growing tourism metropolis, the choice of dining venues available to such exotic minorities as myself went up to somewhere around 7! But we quickly became regulars at a little known vegan chain called Loving Hut. Loving Hut, if you didn’t know (I didn’t) is… Continue reading Loving, Loving Hut
Raw 42 was just one of three raw restaurants in Vilnius, and as the capital is unabashedly small, that’s pretty impressive. Like our borsch soup starter, the initial welcome was luke-warm. Marc’s gruff male exterior with his arctic beard and boots just short of slinging a haunch of seal blubber prompted the waitress to explain… Continue reading Red Alert in Lithuania
We had an unexpected yet humbling encounter at the Hare Krishna restaurant, Rama. After feeling unimpressed and unloved by a trendy, non-committal in a ‘we’re cool because we used to be a bike shop’ sort of way, veggie cafe with despairingly slim offerings, we came across a Hare Krishna restaurant reported to be cheap and… Continue reading Hungry Vegan? No Drama in Rama! Hare Krishna Restaurant, Riga
Napfenyes is a fully vegan restaurant, done out in an old cellar. It offers dim lighting and private booths, a salad bar, a soy ice cream selection for dessert and a small shop. It’s not so much a ‘posh’ experience as homely with a rustic, homemade-y kind of glow. The pizza choice alone was like… Continue reading NapfenYES! (Budapest) Pizza and Other Amazing Vegan Fare (Fried Cheese)!
Friends, the time has come for another one of our Eastern Europe jaunts where we will re-visit the very aptly named Hungary because that means good food in unassuming vegan treasure troves! Not only did Hungary make way for my vegan debut of ‘going for pizza,’, but my first time in a Hare Krishna and… Continue reading Holidaying in Eastern Europe? You Won’t go Hungary!
It was most refreshing to come across an article entitled ‘Sex up your Veg’ in none other than Glamour magazine as I flicked through it this morning. Especially as vegetables aren’t for once, simply dismissed as a side or obligatory accompaniment to meat (grilled chicken or fish you know how it goes). Here veg takes… Continue reading Glamour Magazine Promotes ‘Sexed up’ Veg (Yay)!
I am aware I haven’t posted for an extreeeemely long time, but since ‘Bluehost’ has begun charging me monthly to allow this banal drivel to be lingering somewhere below the periphery of the ether, I thought I’d better post something. Obviously lots of things can happen in a month, but it’s not like I’ve been… Continue reading Earthworm Jim Looks like a Mooli…
I’ve entitled this post ‘ruminating on veg fest,’ since I am aware it was a month ago, and I’m trying to pass this post off as something to do with Easter… but there’s no time limit on memories and the scraps of my haul still live on (well some tea and an essential oil..I think?).… Continue reading Ruminating on Veg Fest
Last Friday evening, I decided to do the thing I enjoy the most- making yummy things to eat! Though after a hard day’s cleaning, ( followed by a considerable amount of wine) I decided to go for a recipe that’s simple yet effective for all involved! I made 3 ingredient chocolate- an easy peasy yet… Continue reading Dead Simple 3 Ingredient Chocolate Recipe (just call me Vianne Rocher)!
