Get Your Grub On at These 8 Amazing Vegan Restaurants in NYC

With close to 600 vegan restaurants to choose from in New York City, you are truly spoiled for choice. It would be nearly impossible for anyone to try all the vegan restaurants in NYC. And even if somebody did manage to eat at all of them, there would be hundreds of new ones to try by the time they were finished.

Nevertheless, we would gladly accept the challenge. In fact, since Victoria’s lived less than an hours train ride away from Manhattan all her life and Adam is obsessed with the Big Apple, we’ve already eaten at our fair share of vegan restaurants in NYC.

Vegan Cooking Class in Ubud – An Organic Farm to Plate Experience

It was quite obvious that we had to do a vegan cooking class in Ubud, Bali since we love the Balinese cuisine (hello tempeh!) and because Ubud is one of the most vegan friendly places we’ve ever visited. 

After searching through the many cooking schools in Ubud we found one that checked all of our boxes. It was very hands-on, check. It offered the possibility to make vegan dishes, check. And most importantly we would learn how to make our beloved peanut sauce, double check!

Roasted Vegan Stuffed Peppers with Rice and Cheese

A few days ago Victoria asked me to try and make some vegan stuffed peppers for us. I wasn’t too excited about it because I haven’t loved them in the past. But I created a recipe for these roasted vegan stuffed peppers with rice and vegan cheese and actually ended up being blown away with the result. This time the peppers were full of flavor and we liked them so much we ended up eating them two nights in a row.

Ethiopian Food – A Mind-Blowing Eating Experience That Will Change Your Life

You know when you find out about one of the most flavorful and vegan-friendly cuisines in the world and you can’t possibly understand how you didn’t know about it sooner? That’s exactly how we felt after our first life-changing mouthful of Ethiopian food.

Our newest food obsession began at the Ethiopian restaurant, Teff, in Stamford, CT – which might be one of the most unlikely places to first try Ethiopian food but we digress. The cuisine was at the time completely new to both of us but we could clearly see a resemblance between it and one of our favorites – South Indian Food.

Let’s just say our first meal at Teff was all the introduction we needed to become hooked on this mind-blowing cuisine. As avid lovers of spices, the food seriously hit all the right spots and we could not get enough.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie Bowl

Smoothie bowls have taken the world by storm and are by far the hottest food trend out there. They come in all kinds of flavors and can be found pretty much anywhere in the world. We had our first experience with this creamy delight a little more than a year ago in Koh Lanta, Thailand. We fell in love after the first spoon full and has ever since kept seeking out smoothie bowls everywhere we go. Bali has so far proven to be the place offering the biggest variety of these delicious bowls and this is also where we got the idea to start making our own. We’ve made all kinds of smoothie bowls with berries, tropical fruit, different kinds of plant based milks, and, of course, chocolate. Our favorite so far has been this amazing and protein packed smoothie bowl with chocolate and peanut butter!

Everything You Need to Know about South Indian Food in Georgetown, Penang

One of the most fascinating aspects with Penang is the bustling and colorful little India. It covers the area of about 4 X 4 streets and is packed full of shops selling saaris, Bollywood movies, Indian pastry and jewelry. It is also home to quite a few very authentic Indian restaurants. Thanks to Penang’s influence from Southern India and particular Tamil Nadu, most of these restaurants are Pure Vegetarian, which in other words means that this little India is a vegan paradise!

South Indian food differs quite a lot from the northern Indian cuisine in the fact that less meat and dairy products are used (hence the vegan friendliness). Also, the curries are in general lighter and not as thick as a typical northern Indian curry and they have a few special dishes that you rarely find in the northern parts of South Asia (see below).
