The only vegan place in town!
Posted on 01 / 22 / 2013
Unless you have a car or fancy a bit of cooking, this is your only 100% vegan place in town (at least as far as we could see).
Excitedly we walked into the restaurant, which is very small. We took a look around and had heard that it had terribly graphic posters up. Thank God it did not. The worst was a cow looking at us with the captions:
"A life for a burger...
Are you serious?"
If anything, we were glad to see such blunt yet none stomach churning activism.
Very tasty, not the biggest portions. Whilst the food doesn't cost much and is inexpensive, we felt that we could have been given more in the way of filling foods.
The Quinoa burger wasn't the best in terms of flavour. But we bought some uncooked spinach burgers and had them at home, They were brilliant. The hotdogs were a must, and the pizza we had had veg-gusto on it. Perfect!
Unfortunately a lot of the food was simply bought and just cooked. Not masses of it was made in store. Which might go a long way to explaining the difficulty in portion sizes.
We also had chocolate crepes. They were divine.
Not great to be honest. The owner seemed shy at best, and awkward and untalkative at worst. But after our second time in the shop at the very end, I did manage to get a smile out of him. Perhaps he'd had a bad day? Or perhaps that's just how he is?
Probably better for taking food away rather than staying in was my reaction.
LOCATION: Very central, quite near the leaning tower of Pisa. Brilliant!
Overall I'd recommend going to this place if you're in Pisa, but not making a special effort if you're not. But try the spinach burgers, hot dogs and crepes if you go!
