Pizza party

In my local organic shop, I did notice this vegan pizza from “Natural Cool” – I was quite curious. it is a pizza with tomato sauce, grilled vegetables and vegan salami slices. I added some Wilmersburger cheese.

The pizza is very good, crispy with generous topping. But I must say, the tomato sauce was way too spicy for me… my poor tongue still remembers my lunch.

Railways

I love travelling by train – you just sit and enjoy the view. And you fell asleep.

From London back to Frankfurt, you transit by Brussels-Midi train station. On my way to London, I did notice this green panel.

On my return to Germany, Tintin is the one who welcome passengers. He is my great hero!

One basic rule when I travel: I carry chocolate bars with me.

The Celtic one was bought in London at Holland and Barrett’s. I found the Zebra one at the organic shop based in Brussels-Midi train station. Very nice and handy shop with full of vegan products.

Now it’s time to catch my train!

Cake paradise

Let’s go to Ms Cupcake! It is a 100% vegan bakery located in Brixton in the south of London. And look at what they propose… muffins, cakes, cookies, scones… I just couldn’t choose 🙂

After several long minutes of thinking and deeply breathing, we ordered the Victoria sponge cake and a giant muffin. With a warm cup of rooibos tea. How cool life is!

Visual trick

I went to London for one week of holidays. I was so happy to see my friends, to go to my favorite veggie places and to use again my umbrella (…)!

In Covent Garden, I saw this complete surreal house called “Take my Lightning but Don’t steal my Thunder” from the artist Alex Chinneck. Just look at the pictures and try to figure out…

We then had lunch at Manna V restaurant, in Primrose Hill. This is a 100% vegan restaurant. In three words: posh, delicate and delicious! We went for the nachos, the californian plate with marinated tofu and the sausages with mash potatoes.

And because it was a very special occasion, I did enjoy this customised sticky toffee pudding.

French and gluten-free

In Strasbourg, there is this restaurant called “La Pause Quinoa” which offers gluten-free dishes. But then they did notice that lots of vegetarian people liked coming there so they decided to extend their menu with veggie options.

I went there and asked for vegan items and I treated myself with a crispy pizza with tapenade and onions. I also chose a creamy dessert with red fruits and pears. Amazing!
