Best Vegan Restaurants Berlin: the Guide

23rd December 2019

vegan food guide Berlin

It’s taken me the best of the last four years to wrap my head around all the vegan food near me here in Berlin and I’m excited to finally present you the best vegan restaurants Berlin has in store. Just for you guys, I’ve eaten my way around the vegan restaurants Berlin trail, chomping on the finest vegan kebabs, burgers, doughnuts, cakes… in fact, just pick your favourite food. I’ve probably eaten it in Berlin. The problem with spending four years trying to eat all the vegan food is that it’s such a vibrant scene, it’s constantly expanding. I keep thinking I’ve eaten everywhere, then overnight another five incredible vegan food Berlin places appear. So this list best vegan restaurants in Berlin gets constantly updated with my latest discoveries.

Vegan Sneakers & Bags: My Vegan Leather Collection

vegan sneakers and vegan bags: my vegan leather collection

Good news everyone, veganism is on the rise! And with that, vegan fashion, especially vegan leather, also is. I can’t begin to tell you how fuzzy it makes me feel when I see more and more people becoming aware of how small actions such as buying vegan sneakers and vegan shoes can have the greatest of impact on our planet, the people and animals. Veganism is not only changing the way we eat, but it is also positively changing our shopping habits, and the sustainable fashion industry is also gaining some sweet sweet momentum. That makes me happy.

Is Indian food vegan? Bloggers answer

15th December 2019

is indian food vegan?

Is Indian food vegan aside from vegan curry? I think a lot of people believe India is super vegan-friendly. The short answer is: not always. Have you heard of ghee? The ubiquitous clarified butter that makes an appearance in so much vegan Indian food? Yeah, not vegan. Indians are also quite fond of dairy (and don’t understand that it’s not vegan!), something I find mind-boggling given how much they love their cows. I haven’t been back to India since I was in Goa in 2015, and I’m excited to be going back for a quick break from the Winter in a few weeks. I’ll be looking for the best beaches of Goa, but meanwhile, I thought now would be a good time for asking my fellow travel bloggers what surprises hide for me in vegan India outside of vegan curry.

Vegan Montreal: The best restaurants

2nd December 2019

vegan and vegetarian friendly restaurants in montreal canada

I took advantage of being back in my old neck of the wood to check out all the vegan food near me and see what was happening on the vegan and vegetarian food scene in Montreal. I was super excited to see that most of my old fave vegan restaurants in Montreal were still alive and well, and even more excited to discover that there were quite a few newcomers, making Montreal one of the most vegan-friendly cities I’ve lived in – not far behind my beloved Berlin and upping the vegan restaurants Montreal count to competitive level. Being vegan in Montreal seems to be the hip thing to do right now and I am really not complaining! So without further ado, here is what I think are the best vegan Montreal offerings at the moment! And if you’re after vegetarian restaurants Montreal has you covered too.

My Favourite Vegan Boots this Winter

30th November 2019

vegan footwear

It’s cold. You are environmentally-aware and vegan and want to make ethical purchasing choices. You need vegan boots and don’t know where to start. Urgh, I get it.

Buying winter clothes can be a headache for the overly aware, I know this all too well. But whoever said you needed to feather birds and kill cows in order to stay warm was obviously full of shit. If you must purchase a pair of brand new vegan boots this winter, know that there are so many brands out there with environmental and social awareness at their core value. They make durable and fashionable pieces using no animal products in socially-responsible factories and are often small family-owned businesses that are really worth supporting. So since the weather is pretty much turning to crap, today I wanted to present you with some great options for vegan footwear so you stay warm and dry.

Vegan Corn Chowder Recipe

This week I noticed corn was finally in season. Hurray! I love me some corn on the cob! And next to that, I love me some vegan corn chowder!

I decided to bring back an old favourite of mine and one of my first ever blog posts back from 2010 (would you believe Mostly Amélie is nearly 10 years old?) Thi recipe conveniently makes around two tons of soup, perfect for the chilly autumn days ahead.

Eat This: Best Vegan Burger Berlin

12th September 2019

Lost in a vegan Burger Berlin maze?

I’m vegan burger-obsessed as much as I’m a health nut. If there’s a burger on the menu, it’ll trump any organic cardboardy bird food I’d usually go for. And to say Berlin has its vegan burger game down pat is quite the understatement. Every burger joints ha a vegan option. Scratch that. Every restaurant has a burger option has a vegan burger option. Berlin has more burger spots than native Berliners and my ambition to document every single vegan burger option in the city was quickly shut down by the pace at which places open and close. So, as the Berlin vegan burger scene ebbs and flows like a goddamn annoying breathing thing, this guide is getting updated with latest discoveries and classics not to be missed.

Vegan Restaurant KL: My Favourite Spots

10th September 2019

vegan restaurants KL

I felt I hit the vegan jackpot when I started researching and making a list of all the vegan restaurant KL options. Unfortunately, I was only there for a week, so I curated a list of vegetarian food near me that I thought sounded the best among the lot to make things easier. Those were in my mind the restaurants the most worthy of a visit, and the ones that blew my mind the most. Here they are, in no particular order. Kuala Lumpur has an amazing vegan community and scene, and I’m excited to return in the near future to add to the guide. For now, here are my favourite vegan Kuala Lumpur spots. There are many Kuala Lumpur vegetarian spots, and as many vegan ones! There’s so much vegan food in Kuala Lumpur!

Vegan Hamburg + Vegan Breakfast Hamburg Hotspot Guide

12th August 2019

Much like Leipzig, Hamburg came as a pleasant surprise, with chilled vibes all around and throngs of alternative, cool and independent shops and cafés. Perhaps it’s the fact that it’s located not so far from Berlin, but I found Hamburg to be similar in some ways — be it in the cool nature of the stylish locals or the general overall diversity. As such, the German port city obviously had several vegan restaurants for us to sample, and, what the hell, a fully vegan bed and breakfast! The vegan Hamburg restaurants, including some fantastic vegan breakfast Hamburg hotspots, get my stamp of approval! Without further ado, I’d like to present you a short list of all the delicious vegan food I sampled in Hamburg.

Wondering what vegan Munich has in store for ya?

There’s so much more to Munich than Oktoberfest. Sure, the Bavarian capital can be the scene of lederhosen-clad drunken Weisswürste fest. But open your eyes wide and you’ll discover an amazing health and vegan scene, gorgeous boutique hotels, and — what the hell — river surfing right in the city center. There’s definitely more than meets the eye in Munich and I set up to explore what lies beneath the Schweinsbraten and just how many vegan restaurants Munich had for me. Wunderbar.
