Veggies On Fire – The Hague

The Hague is one of my favorite cities in the Netherlands. The Hague is the city of peace and law, located on the coast of the North Sea with wide sandy beaches. It is a city of new styles and old masters, with shops, palaces, green parks and beautiful museums like the Mauritshuis. And above all, it is a city where you can eat great vegan food. John and Carin…

Sampling The Vegan Scene In Sheffield

One of the greatest things about traveling full-time is meeting all kinds of amazing people from all over the world. While on a year-long backpacking trip through Latin America, I met a British guy named Julien and we hit it off, traveling with each other through Bolivia before parting ways in Peru. I later told him that I’d be heading off to the U.K at some point and he invited…

Restaurant Review: Spirit in Rotterdam, Netherlands

Visiting the Rotterdam Markthal was one of the hotspots on my wish list. And I loved the building, especially the very colorful ceiling. Truly beautiful. To make the experience even better, we had a great vegan/vegetarian option nearby; Spirit. Located in the Green Passage of Rotterdam, Spirit serves a fully vegetarian (and mostly vegan, I think about 75-80% is vegan) buffet. The concept reminded me of L’Etto in Napoli —…

AtayaCaffe in Berlin, Germany

Tucked away in a quiet side street off Prenzlauer Allee, AtayaCaffe is bringing a combination of Sardinian sunshine and Senegalese flair to this corner of Prenzlauer Berg. Berlin HappyCow ambassadors J-Veg and Kyttiara went to check it out and enjoy a slow breakfast. Stepping into this cosy cafe decorated with Senegalese wall hangings, we immediately felt at home as we were welcomed with warm smiles. Our taste buds already began…

The first thing we do here in China is live in a hotel where breakfast is provided, and I ate most of my calories during morning meals during that time. In the beginning, due to culture shock and language barriers, I was afraid to venture outside…

Blossom – New York

Blossom Restaurant has two locations in New York — one in Chelsea and one on the Upper West Side. We have visited the Chelsea twice! It is ‘ just around the corner’ from the beautiful High Line Park, which is truly a beautiful site! After a walk through the park, where I really really enjoyed all the beautiful flowers (very good job done by Piet Oudolf, the Dutch designer of…
