Veel Good in Darmstadt

Hurray, a new vegan cafĂ© has opened in Darmstadt. It’s called Veel Good and indeed, you feel home straight away when you come in. And you feel hungry too 🙂

The choice is huge: sandwiches, biscuits, cakes… you can sit and enjoy or bring it home. The atmosphere is very friendly and cosy. Do stop by if you are around!

Vegan Christmas biscuits

I don’t know about you but I had tons of biscuits and chocolate during Christmas. The thing is, as it was my first Christmas in Germany, I really wanted to try all the local traditional yummy bits and bobs.

All the organic shops were selling vegan versions of those desserts… how wonderful 🙂

They are usually made with spices. The Pfeffernüsse are small biscuits made with cloves, cinnamon and anis. The Elisenlebkuchen are nuts and almond cookies with lemon and orange savour.

My favorite one? The Walnusskuchen, a cake made with walnuts and chocolate.

It’s beginning of January now and I am glad I still have a few left to keep me happy during the winter 🙂

 

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.
