Vegan Pizza in Florence Italy - Help I passed a place called Panetteria Struzzicherra somewhere in Florence that advertised vegan pizzas and sandwiches. I did not have a chance to confirm if it the establishment fully vegetarian or simply veggie friendly, but regardless, who wouldn't want to try a vegan pizza while in Italy? Unfortunately I was too busy to write down the address, so I wrote down the name to research later online and list them on Happy Cow. But I cannot find it at all! The name I wrote was Panetteria Struzzicherra. So if anyone is familiar with this place, please post the info here so I can get it listed. Post Date: 09/28/15, Replies: 0 09/28/15 0

Vegan/Vegetarian Places in Columbus, Ohio Hello: I'm going to Columbus, Ohio and wanted to know of any good local vegan/vegetarian bakeries, shops or restaurants you'd recommend. I always saw the area as more of a meat and dairy town, but I'm sure there's other things out there. Any suggestions and perspectives are appreciated. Thanks.

veg/omnivore-friendly eateries (kaohsiung/tainan)? we with be visiting kaohsiung and tainan in september. my mum and i are vegetarians and my dad and aunt are omnivores, though not particularly fond of beef. i've researched and been recommended some veggie restaurants such as double veggie, jujube tree, blithe pizza (kaohsiung) and vonnie's garden (tainan), but i don't want to limit our dining options to strictly veg restaurants. are there are other tried and tested "ordinary" yet veg-friendly restaurants? also, are there any recommended indie cafes, or veggie farm, animal shelter visits in either city?

Is Gelato vegetarian in Italy (Florence)? My wife and I are travelling to Florence next week, and we were wondering whether gelato, as sold at local gelaterias (sp?) who make it fresh every day, is vegetarian. I.e., do they ever use any animal products such as gelatin, like in many commercial ice-creams? More specifically, would someone be able to recommend any wholly-vegetarian gelaterias in Florence? "Perche No" often comes up in the listings, but I couldn't see whether their normal non-vegan flavours are actually totally vegetarian. Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks!

Thailand Vegetarian Festival The Thailand vegetarian festival always falls on the first days of the ninth Chinese lunar month. While celebrated across Thailand the centre & most spectacular display of the festival is Phuket. Firewalking, body piercing and other acts of self mortification undertaken by participants acting as mediums of the gods, have become more spectacular and daring as each year goes by. Men and women puncture their cheeks with various items including knives, skewers and other household items. It is believed that the Chinese gods will protect such persons from harm, and little blood or scarring results from such mutilation acts. This is definitely not recommended for the faint hearted to witness (see pics in this link). www.phuket.com/festival/vegetarian.htm Post Date: 08/10/15, Replies: 2 08/10/15 2
Vegan find in the Heart of Cattle Country If anyone is traveling in northern California on 395 and goes through the city of Susanville, California (Lassen County)there is hope. A Thai restaurant called The White House. They have wonderful tofu green curry and other menu items they can make vegan. The fresh tofu spring roles and peanut sauce are excellent!

British Airways & Vegan Discrimination Fed up with BA. They discriminate against vegans on short-haul flights by not offering anything for us to eat but, at the same time, offering free food to everyone else. Bad customer practice, alienating vegans like this. Poor customer practice in their bland corporate replies to my complaints. Post Date: 07/29/15, Replies: 1 07/29/15 1

Good veg travel tour company Hi I would like to go on a biking trip/hiking/camping trip with my family this summer. I am open to going pretty much anywhere (yes, really, anywhere). One thing I would like is to go on a trip where all the food is provided so I don't have to worry about where to eat or cooking myself. A few years ago my family did a whitewater rafting trip for five days in Idaho and the outfitter swore up and down they could accommodate us and wouldn't let me see the menu in advance ("our chefs like the guests to be surprised). But once we were on the trip, in the middle of the wilderness, all they did was take the meat out of everything they prepared (i.e., chicken caesar without the chicken, etc). That part of the trip was rather miserable and when it was over and I called the owner, she admitted they had never had a vegetarian family for five days and didn't really know what to do. So now I'd like to take an outdoor adventure type trip again where we can travel around and camp or stay in inns or whatever regular families do, and not have to worry constantly about the food part (which is always a big component of every single vacation). Has anyone had any really good experiences with outfiiters/adventure guides/cycling companies or just regular tour operators? Post Date: 07/21/15, Replies: 3 07/21/15 3

Beirut / Lebanon Hey guys, Has anyone been to Lebanon? Any ideas how easy it is to get vegan food, especially outside of the big cities? I know that Lebanese cuisine is rich in vegan food, but I don't know whether that means it's easy to find vegan food everywhere! It seems like there are a few places on HappyCow, but not many, and only 1 outside of Beirut. Post Date: 07/13/15, Replies: 0 07/13/15 0
