Some newly discovered thingies :)

Ciao peeps!

Yesterday afternoon, Jacob and I had a fun time going to VX Bristol for the first time, which is a really awesome little cosy diner-style cafe and shop, which is 100% vegan and does a menu of “vegan junk food”! I predict that we will go there many many more times…

I’m hoping that, in the future, it may be able to move closer to central Bristol and drum up even more business, cause it’s quite out-of-the-way at the moment, but very popular nevertheless 🙂 That’s what recently happened with Temple of Hackney; it became so popular that they’ve been able to open a bigger new restaurant in Camden!

We had a quesadilla, burrito, black forest cake and a cookie sandwich!

Later on, before going to karaoke, we went for a coupe of drinks in Wetherspoons, and saw that they have a new vegan dish on their menu: teriyaki noodles! We tried them and they are very tasty but also quite healthy-looking. Always nice to see new plant-based items appearing on chain menus 🙂

P.S. Look at this doughnut. LOOK AT THIS DOUGHNUT

Some new things!

I tried some new items from Lidl this week 🙂 I was not expecting any of them to be vegan, but I checked the packets anyway and was pleasantly surprised!

They do vegetable burgers and spicy bean burgers, both of which are very nice (although, like most ready-made items, contain palm oil so avoid if you choose). I was very surprised to discover that their apple strudel is also OK! We had this with Swedish Glace vanilla ice-cream:

Also, we finally got around to trying the Wetherspoons curry! It was tasty and very good value; a decent portion of curry, rice, two poppadoms and a naan bread 🙂

Lastly, there was a one-off vegan cake stall in Bath city centre on Sunday! I was doing my penultimate shift at Lidl that day, so Jacob went along and bought rather a lot of things: sausage rolls, a spiced mince tart, and several cakes, some flavours of which I hadn’t eaten since going vegan e.g. coffee cake and mint-choc! A lovely treat 🙂

Yes, that is edible cat rice-paper…
