Vegan Food Under A Bridge

As they say in real estate: Location, Location, Location. While touring around London, I passed by a vegan café in an unlikely place; right under a rail station. Quaintly placed below the station’s bridge, The Fields Beneath is a phenomenal little spot to enjoy a coffee or latte and watch the world pass by. I brought a non-vegan friend along with me to share in the experience (and so that…

A Less Heard Of Benefit Of Being Vegan

You’ve probably heard that a vegan diet is good for your heath. You’ve probably heard that it’s good for the planet. And you know that it’s good for the animals. These things are all true. However, you might not have heard one of my personal favorite things about being vegan: it’s an adventure. I spent the past two weeks traveling on a sailboat through the San Juan islands in the…

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 —…

Kruisheren Restaurant – Maastricht, Netherlands

  This week I have to make an exception and write a review about a truly wonderful vegan dinner from a non-vegan restaurant. Why? Because this dinner was of such high standards that I can confidently say that it was one of my best vegan dinners ever! This goes to show that is possible to have great vegan food in a non-vegan place. I contacted Kruisherenhotel ahead of time to ask…

Terra Restaurante Natural – Lisbon

When we were in Lisbon in 2015 we had dinner at Terra Restaurante Natural for the first time and we were pleasantly surprised. Great food, kind people and lots of positive reviews and clippings on the wall. Even from Moby (long time vegan). So when planning our trip this year we knew we wanted to come back here. Terra (meaning Earth in Portuguese) is a vegetarian (and mostly vegan) restaurant, considered…

Miss Saigon Desserts

As promised, we went back to Miss Saigon. What can I say…it is one of my favorites spots in Lisbon. We had a reservation for a first lunch in Lisbon, almost straight from the airport. This time I didn’t go for the combination-platter. I needed room for the desserts… The first day I had lovely Jewish pastries… mmm…really good! And I had a very nice pear cake as dessert, while my…

Restaurant Highlight – Cookies Cream in Berlin

A veggie gem in historic Mitte! Just the other day I read the following sentence: Kudos if you can locate this chic herbivore haven right away. I couldn’t agree more…it was not easy, and it turned out to be a real quest to find it. We came across strange corridors, blacks doors and even a restaurant-kitchen that turned out not to be Cookies Cream. But when we finally saw a…

Almodovar Hotel

A few years ago I came across an article in a magazine about a vegetarian hotel in Berlin. Of course I was curious so I looked in to it and found The Almodovar Hotel listed on HappyCow! We knew that whenever we would go to Berlin we had to stay at The Almodovar Hotel. It is situated in the heart of the Berlin Scene District of Friedrichshain. A very hip…
