Why can't every city just be covered in ivy? Seriously, Berlin is one of the greenest cities ever - the only other city we've been to that rivals it is Portland (coincidentally also vegan heaven - related? Discuss.). It's so beautiful to see nature enveloping the concrete and metal, and have endless parks to explore. Though of course the trade off is rain - and today we got caught in a downpour while biking! ☔🚴🌳
So big it won't fit in the frame! 😮 We're on a pizza eating binge recently because we just can't say no to vegan pizzerias with wood fired ovens. We popped over to La Stella Nera on our first full day in Berlin to sink our teeth into that amazing crust. Their homemade ricotta (tofu-based) was just the right texture - these foodies were quite pleased! What's your favorite kind of pizza? Thin crust? Wood fired? Or *gasp* Chicago style - deep dish?! 🍕
Take a minute to stop and smell the flowers. It's so easy to rush through everything when we should be savoring each moment. We enjoyed these beauties alongside a delicious Sunday roast back in Brighton. We just got to Berlin yesterday, so Sunday roasts are a thing of the past, bit bring on the brunch! Anyone have any favorite places in Berlin (food or otherwise) we gotta hit up?
New blog post! This Sunday's post is a tasty one - our Vegan Guide to Glasgow is now live! Featuring this decadent brownie from @the78cafebar aka the coziest vegan pub you ever saw. One afternoon, we ducked in out of the rain and feasted to our hearts' content. Veren is quite the brownie critic (he has very specific parameters) and this brownie blew him away. Plus, ice cream.🍧Head to the link in our bio to read the full guide with lots more places and delicious treats! 😄
Second last day in Brighton and off to enjoy the sunny day. Summer weekends in Brighton are full of outdoor markets and closed down streets - just how we like it. We've had a great few weeks here but we're also ready to move on - next stop Berlin!
Another day, another vegan cheese plate. We had already been to @purezzauk when we first got to Brighton, but we were so impressed with the food that we knew we had to come back and try the nut cheese plate. Very delicious and each one was quite different, though our favorite was the sundried tomato one. Have you ever tried a nut cheese? 🌰
The inverse of last week's Brighton door. The colors of this town are stunning! Less than a week from now we'll be off after 2.5 weeks here, so we are soaking in all we can!
Sorry not sorry about posting this Sunday roast again, even though it already appeared in our stories. We've seen signs advertising Sunday roasts everywhere, so we knew we had to try one! This one from @vbitesbrighton had a homemade nut roast, a Yorkshire pudding, roasted potatoes, cauliflower, sautéed cabbage, sweet potato mash - all covered with a generous amount of gravy. Kind of reminded us of Thanksgiving!
Sundays in Brighton! A lot of streets are closed off to cars on the weekend and these streets are made for strolling. Street performers abound and everyone's eating outside on a terrace. Beautiful days like this one are meant to be taken slowly and enjoyed. What'd you all do this Sunday? 👐
