Just like every other place in Turkey I’ve so far visited Istanbul is definitely also a culinary highlight. While the Turkish cuisine is full of lamb kebabs, ayran (a yoghurt drink) and baklava there is also plenty of room for stuffed roasted capsicum, all different kinds of variations of eggplant and lokum.

Tian is a Michelin-star awarded vegetarian restaurant in Vienna and when Mr A told me to meet him at Stephansplatz at 5.45 pm on my birthday I kept my fingers crossed that he was going to take me to Tian again.
Last Friday was my birthday and I basically spent the whole weekend celebrating it (which explains why there was no Sunday post last week). In fact, I have yet to meet some of my closest friends so the partying will continue until at least Easter (by which time we’ll already be preparing for Mr A’s birthday). Continue reading Aliciouslife: My birthday weekend
One of the first restaurants I heard vegans rave about was Schillinger in Großmugl, a little village halfway between Vienna and the Czech border.
Since Großmugl is a fair way from the city and only accessible by car, it took me over a year to finally get there myself and form an opinion. As usual, I was overly critical – if everyone says it’s awesome it can’t be really…or can it? Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Dinner at Schillinger
A lover of all things organising I had for a while been contemplating getting cleverer about the meals (dinner) I cook during the week. However, despite thorough research on the internet I didn’t come across any meal plan I wanted to copy.
Therefore, I had to resort to DIY (or, in this case, DIM). Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Meal planning
A couple of months ago there was a rumour that Schillinger, probably the most well-known vegan restaurant in the eastern part of Austria, was going to open a restaurant in Vienna. This rumour stuck around pretty persistently. Then the ads on Facebook started. More rumours that there it going to be an all-vegan burger joint. Finally a tentative opening date appeared: early January 2015.
The first time I went, I was more than pleasantly surprised. The second time, I still couldn’t believe it was true. Now that I’ve been numerous times – for both breakfast and dinner – since Ströck Feierabend opened in February, I still find it perplexing how smooth and friendly the service presents itself. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Feierabend!
I love getting mail and especially love getting parcels. It’s the Christmas-feeling I get every time I get to unwrap something, whereas it’s completely irrelevant whether I know what’s inside or don’t.
For a while I’d been meaning to try Kochabo, where you’re supplied with a box containing food & recipies for the number of persons and amount of meals you chose in your online order. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Kochabo
I had insisted on spending a whole day in Auckland rather than arriving there the day before our departure to give us some rest. We stayed at Verandah, the hostel where I spent my first Christmas away from home in 2006, and I still cannot recommend this place enough. Campbell, the owner, had his place extended but it’s still a lovely place to hang out in one of the coolest areas of Auckland, Ponsonby. Continue reading Alicioustravels: Auckland
