Studying Abroad? Hello everyone, In April I will be traveling to Quebec with my school to study French. I am a bit wary though because we are all staying with different host families and I am not sure if they can accommodate my vegan diet. I do not want to be demanding or ungrateful for the food they are able to provide me, but I still want to eat as vegan as possible on this trip. Any thoughts? Post Date: 01/26/15, Replies: 1

Happy Cow GPS Feature I wanted to suggest a feature for Happy Cow and so am posting to see what people thing. I'll be traveling to Europe and plan to use a GPS to find my way around the city since I don't have need of a smart phone to justify their costs. At least for the Garmin GPS it's quite simple to load new points of interest (POIs), like restaurants, etc. Would you find it useful if Happy Cow could download search results into a file that can be loaded onto a Garmin? It should be pretty simple to program. It's just a 3 or 4 column CSV file. www.poi-factory.com/garmin-csv-file-format I believe Google Maps might also be able to create a custom map with a CSV file upload. Etc. Any other uses you can think of for this? If you are a GPS user, is that something you'd find useful? Post Date: 01/10/15, Replies: 0

Sea cruise from/to Sydney I an a vegan who lives in Sydney, Australia, and would like to take a sea cruise that begins and returns there, or involves only one flight. Can anyone recommend a cruise where they know how to cater for vegans? It would also be good if they understood the concept of vegan wines. Ideally the cruise would be for about two weeks, visiting destinations in Asia or the Pacific. Post Date: 12/11/14, Replies: 0

Best vegan places in Bangkok? Hi everyone! I just over a week I'm going to Bangkok for a few days, and I feel quite lost looking at the amount of vegetarian and vegan restaurants listed on this site! I'm not used to there being so many. Can you help me pick out a few, preferably ones easy to find and close to places I might want to visit? Thanks! Post Date: 11/02/14, Replies: 5
Hospitality Education Has anyone had this experience? It was the first time for me. I was reading the menu outside a very popular beachfront restaurant, and a maitre'd came up to me and asked if I'd like any help. I explained that I was looking to see if there was any vegan or vegetarian options, and she said with a big smile - "Yes!" and then told me they had a gluten free menu. Every dish on the menu had animal products, so I said that vegan meant nothing dead from an animal or related to an animal's body - no meat, dairy, eggs - so she repeated that they had a gluten free menu, and I repeated myself about being vegan! Needless to say we didn't dine there. I had hoped that the difference between gluten free and vegan/vegetarian would be more commonplace in a high tourist area. Post Date: 08/18/14, Replies: 0
Israelis Sway Domino's To Make Vegan Pizza In the U.S., Big Pizza is locked in a battle that's as much a testament to gluttony as it is to food science: How much cheese can you possibly stuff inside of wheat dough? Earlier this year, Pizza Hut took it to the next level with the Crazy Cheesy Crust Pizza: a regular pizza ringed with "pockets" oozing a five-cheese blend. By way of explanation of its existence, Pizza Hut's head chef told Yahoo, "Consumers always want more cheese." But in Israel, apparently, they don't. There, the cheese is being voted off the pizza, the Israeli daily Haaretz reported this week. It seems a passionate vegan lobby clamored so loudly for dairy-free pizza that Domino's had to acquiesce. The pizza chain's stores in Israel are now offering a family-size pizza with vegetables and a soy-based topping for about $20. It all started with a Facebook campaign led by Vegan Friendly, a group that promotes the vegan lifestyle in Israel. Vegan Friendly claims to have a virtual community of 30,000 vegans in Israel, and has stamped hundreds of stores and restaurants with its vegan-friendly seal. The vegans wanted pizza, and they weren't going to stop until they got it. Americans eat about 31 pounds of cheese per person each year, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. "Israel is leading the vegan revolution around the world, and this is another indication," Omri Paz, the director of Vegan Friendly, told Haaretz's Dafna Arad. He said that with the new pizza on the menu, vegans could order from the chain "without pangs of conscience." Domino's has 10,000 locations in more than 70 countries, including 50 branches in Israel. We were curious whether the Israeli vegan pizza might inspire something similar on stateside menus. Not so much. "We'll be paying attention to [the vegan pizza in Israel], but it's not something we're working on here in the U.S.," Domino's spokesman Tim McIntyre tells The Salt. In the meantime, Domino's will continue selling Wisconsin 6 Cheese Pizza and the Stuffed Cheesy Bread to cater to the cheeseheads. (Americans consumed about 34 pounds of cheese per person in 2012, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which some argue is a bit too much.) Still, vegans or people who may simply want a lighter pizza may have more pizza options in the near future. The Wall Street Journal reports that Chipotle is getting into the choose-your-own-topping pizza business, with a new concept in Denver called Pizzeria Locale it helped finance. article link; http://www.npr.org/blogs/thesalt/2013/12/17/251998998/hold-the-cheese-israelis-sway-dominos-to-make-vegan-pizza Israel Vegan Friendly http://www.vegan-friendly.co.il/ Post Date: 08/09/14, Replies: 0
vegan South pacific destinations? Hi I'm located in Melbourne, Australia and am going away next year for a second honeymoon. We need to go somewhere inexpensive so we're looking at going to a pacific island. I'm a bit nervous about being vegan and gluten free, where abouts would you recommend we go so that I can get food? I don't want food to be the deciding factor, we want to go somewhere fun! but it would suck to starve. Recommendations? Post Date: 08/02/14, Replies: 3

DisneyWorld and Orlando My husband and I are going to Disneyworld next year, we are both vegan so I thought I'd try and do a bit of early food planning! I've managed to find quite a bit of info on the Disney parks but probably don't intend on eating there everyday, looking for recommendations in the surrounding areas. I know there are a few places in Downtown Orlando but thats probably a bit further than I'd like to go. Post Date: 06/29/14, Replies: 1

A vegan visiting Disneyland Paris...help! My husband and I are visiting Disneyland Paris next month and I'm slightly concerned about our food options! I've been many times as a veggie but this is our first time as vegans. I've tried to do some research online but there isn't much available, and the stuff I did find is not very helpful! Any information would be much appreciated as I don't really want to live on fries for 2 days :-) Post Date: 05/04/14, Replies: 1
Delhi Info Our favorite place is the Navdanya stall in Dilli Haat! Though lots of the stalls there have vegan options. Indian food is the best, but watch out for cream in the main dishes like Channa Masala and any spinach dish. Post Date: 05/04/14, Replies: 0

GLASGOW, UK. VERY VEGAN FRIENDLY I was a bit disappointed to see that Glasgow does not appear in the list of vegan friendly cities. We have at least 6 totally vegan cafes and various vegetarian eateries that have good vegan alternatives. It's certainly one of the best cities for vegans in Europe I would say.

Vegan friendly restaurant in Charlotte, NC I am visiting the Charlotte, NC area at the end of the month and will be meeting family members that are non-vegan. They prefer "a place that serves salads, regular American fare, and fish." Any thoughts or ideas that would accommodate them as well as me (vegan)? Thank you! Post Date: 03/24/14, Replies: 2
No VGMLs on Qatar Airlines I recently flew Qatar Airlines round trip from the US to China. As always, I order a vgml meal before flying. The meals I was served were not vegan meals. On one segment of the flight I was served a sandwich with eggs. On another segment of the flight I was given cheese. I contacted their customer service at the end of my flight to complain. It took them more than 1 month to reply. Their reply "sorry." Hardly the kind of service that one would expect from a company that prides itself as being a "5-star airline."

A Vegan in Paris...with her Non-Vegan BF Help! For my boyfriends birthday he decided to take us to Paris. He currently works as a Baker & previous to this as a Chef, so is very excited about trying French Cuisine and Patisseries. Myself on the other hand am worried I wont be eating for 4 days! I have researched & found some Vegan Cafes, however as its my boyfriends birthday trip & he eats meat I feel reluctant to make him go to purely Vegan places for me. Has anyone had any previous experiences? Ive read online that places are reluctant to alter dishes. What about people Lactose-Intollerances? Would appreciate any suggestions- we go on the 22/08/13, so not long!! Post Date: 03/09/14, Replies: 2
