Pogo Cafe in London, England
Apr 15 08

rating star

I came here on a Sunday when there were 2 meal choices for brunch. The one I chose consisted of vegan bacon & sausage, beans, fries ('chips'), and a pancake. All tasted very good. They have an extensive vegan dessert menu, so I got the Knickerbocker Glory, which was basically a Sunday of 3 different kinds of ice cream topped with tons of sweet sauces, broken biscuits, and whipped cream. My friend ordered a slice of carrot cake with a scoop of vanilla ice cream... I had a few bites of the cake and it was by far the best carrot cake I have ever had.

FéeMiniThé in Paris, France
Mar 13 08

rating star

I wish I would have discovered this place earlier in the time I spent in Paris, because it was certainly a charming little joint. The staff was super friendly and knowledgeable about what was/wasn't vegan. I had a delicious meal of stuffed peppers and rice followed by a slice of delicious torte and a creamy hot chocolate...all vegan.

L'As du Falafel in Paris, France
Mar 13 08

rating star

L'As was one of my favorite falafel places in Paris. It's too bad that the price went up to 5€, because when I was there it was only 4€ for a sandwich. To make the sandwich a little better (is it possible?) just ask "sauce picante, s'il vous plaît" (spicy sauce, please).

Maoz Vegetarian in Paris, France
Mar 13 08

rating star

Maoz in Paris is in a very busy little neighborhood of Greek restaurants and touristy stuff. There is very little seating, so you are lucky if you get a place to sit, but if the weather is good, you are only a block from the Seine River and a block and a half from Notre Dame...

There is a whole bar of condiments to put on your sandwich (almost all of them vegan). The Belgian-style fries are delicious as well.

Bali Restaurant in Twin Cities, Minnesota
Jan 22 09

rating star

I liked my visit to Bali. Though there were only a few dishes listed as 'vegan', the server was happy to find what else on the menu could also be prepared that way. The chef even came out to talk to us.

The dishes we received were pretty decent, though the tofu lacked flavor and the spicy fried rice was almost too spicy. I *highly* recommend the coconut rice, though. The vegan dishes were modestly priced (between $7 and $10, if I remember correctly) and the portions were decent.

Caffrey's Deli and Subs in Twin Cities, Minnesota
Mar 13 08

rating star

I have ordered a lot of Caffrey's in my time, and I am very disappointed at the moment. Out of the last 5 times I ordered, they have delivered a non-vegan sandwich 4 times. Screwing up 4/5 times isn't the only problem: they stopped carrying the vegan chicken and the vegenaise, so neither of those are available anymore. Their vegan chili isn't very good either, which is the only vegan soup available.

Boo!

Everest on Grand in Twin Cities, Minnesota
Mar 13 08

rating star

The food was very good and the staff was very helpful as far as figuring out what was vegan and whatnot. I ate the veggie momo, veggie pakora, and the kabuli chana. Though the other dishes were good, I found the kabuli chana to be excellent and a little more flavorful.

Galactic Pizza in Twin Cities, Minnesota
Aug 8 09

rating star

I habitually order the vegan Paul Bunyan, and have tried a few others, but lately I have not enjoyed their pizzas due to their new vegan cheese (Teese). I don't think I will be eating their pizza anymore until they change the cheese to something better.

The vegan Muddy Paws cheesecake is the only think that will bring me back to Galactic.

Hard Times Cafe in Twin Cities, Minnesota
Mar 13 08

rating star

This is one of my favorite spots in the Twin Cities. The vegan biscuits & gravy is quite amazing, otherwise I order the steamed rice & veggies (with or without seitan - either way is delicious). The vegan bakery selection is usually very good. The vegan chocolate dipped orange shortbread cookies, the vegan banana chocolate chip muffins, and the chocolate espresso cupcakes are all my favorites.

When there are soups available, the west african peanut soup is the best soup in town.

Kinh Do in Twin Cities, Minnesota
Dec 5 08

rating star

I go to Kinh Do at least a few times a year, and I am always impressed. I generally order the Tofu and Mock Duck with Cashew Nuts and I have never been disappointed. The Pad Thai without fish sauce and egg is really good as well. I don't recommend the spring rolls for they are a bit on the bland side and not worth $5.

moto-i in Twin Cities, Minnesota
Dec 5 08

rating star

I tried the micro-brewed sake, and it was good.
We sat at the bar and the bartender was nice enough to bring a menu back to the cooks and mark everything that could be vegan on it. I ordered the veggie steamed dumplings, which were alright. They were not mind blowingly amazing, but they were good. I only tried a taste of one of the steamed buns and thought it lacked much flavor.

I would return to this restaurant during happy hour when the sake is only $5/glass.

Taste of Thailand in Twin Cities, Minnesota
Feb 20 09

rating star

When I dined here sometime between lunch and dinner time, the place was empty. A couple strolled in after about 20 minutes of being there, but it was very quiet. The waitress was very friendly and helpful as far as finding the vegan options on the menu. She was pretty knowledgeable, but had to ask the cook about what was in the curry paste (indeed it contained shrimp paste). The food was very good, especially the pad thai (it was the best I've had in the Twin Cities so far). I would dine there again, but I am still not happy about having to go through the work of figuring out what dishes can be made vegan.

Sacred Chow in Manhattan, New York City

The food here was delicious when I went. It's been awhile, so I don't remember everything that I got, but the Brownie Sundae was pretty excellent (read: very excellent).

The 13th Note in Strathclyde, Scotland
Apr 15 08

rating star

The 13th Note is a vegetarian pub/venue that I took advantage of while I was in Glasgow. I ended up getting hot chocolate, beer, and a veggie burger from them over the course of a few visits. The staff was very nice and helpful. Usually in restaurants a 'V' signifies that something is vegan, but at this place it means that something is NOT vegan. I found this to be odd. One night I saw a show in the basement venue and found it to be nice.

Mono in Strathclyde, Scotland
Apr 15 08

rating star

Though the food seemed a little bit on the expensive side, it was delicious nonetheless. The whole menu is vegan and all of the non-vegan beers on tap are marked with a note. I came by Mono a few times while I was in Glasgow, and over the course of a few visits I managed to have vegan raspberry cheesecake, vegan cream cheese and spinach stuffed philo with seasoned mashed potatoes & asparagus, and beer. My friend got the Mono Burger... which I tasted. It was amazing and topped with many delicious toppings such as vegan mayo.
