First things first: Surprisingly enough I had the best falafel sandwich EVER in Sydney. I know my falafel and I’ve had it from Austria (where Levantine food is especially tasty due to many immigrants from that region) to Egypt, from Syria to Turkey – to meet my master at Sabbaba on Hall Street in Bondi.
The pita bread filled to the brim with the most delicious ingredients was indeed so perfectly flavourful that I was too immersed in relishing every single bite to take a photo of it.
You’ll understand. Continue reading Vegan Sydney
Arriving in Melbourne in the wee hours of a rainy Friday morning in August we made a beeline to our hotel where we were welcomed with beautifully arranged pastries (not vegan but still a very nice gesture – Mr A enjoyed them) and hot tea while we waited for our room to be ready.

Despite my observation that Colombians seems to derive nearly all of their protein from animal-sources (namely meat and fish), eating vegan in Colombia turned out to be surprisingly easy. And delicious! Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Vegan Caribbean Colombia
The other week marked the one-year anniversary of my last visit to Chicago, a city I try to regularly visit since a close friend lives there (meaning I don’t have to spend on accommodation and can do a whole lot of shopping instead). Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Vegan Chicago
Home Made first showed up in my Facebook feed some time late last year and I immediately put it on top of my “places to try” list: a cute little café serving vegan (soy free!) food lovingly prepared by the two friendly ladies who own the cafe. I also liked the fonts on their website Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Birthday brunch at Home Made
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.
He did. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Birthday dinner at Tian
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
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.
And a name: Swing Kitchen. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Schillinger’s Swing Kitchen
One of many great things of not being at work all day was that I got to try out some of the lunch-places I had been meaning to visit for a while. Even though a few of them were closed (looking at you here, Home Made and Nat’naa), many were not.
On one of my numerous strolls around the city I found myself steering towards Freshii, a small restaurant in the first district. All I knew was that it served salads, soups and wraps, with a fair chance of vegan fare. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Freshii
Coming across a new venue that offers vegan brunch in a smoke free environment I will always be eager to give it a try. My latest find in this category is Green PS Cafe–Bar–Shop at Shinergy Zone in the 9th district and we went to their New Year’s brunch last Sunday. It was only the second time they actually offered brunch but the food had definitely been tried and tested before – because simply everything was delicious!
