good times: some beers and a vegan field roast sausage at rosamunde sausage grill in san francisco’s mission district. unlike the haight location, this one is a proper bar and sit down restaurant.
the food at rosamunde is excellent, the staff members are knowledgeable about veganism (separate grill!), and the beer list rules. i did, however, see a mouse in the bathroom…if that sorta thing bothers you!
one of the best places to get a vegan breakfast in london is inspiral lounge in camden. there’s nothing traditional about this little restaurant’s take on the “traditional” english breakfast—-in fact their version is quite extraordinary!
this breakfast was so good, i ate it three times in one week, and even that wasn’t enough. for a mere ₤6.45 it comes with scrambled tofu, homemade veggie sausage, grilled tomatoes, mushrooms, hash browns, homemade baked beans, and toast! the whole plate is amazing, but the stand outs are definitely the beans and sausage.
beware: inspiral can be inconsistent, not in the quality, but in the quantity of certain items. depending on when you go, they may be out of something…but they’re always happy to give you extra of something else.
more bad news: service is slow and the wifi situation is absolutely bonkers (you have to go through a code obstacle course to get connected—-just ask for the password and you’ll see what i mean; it’s a trip!), but overall this place gets a solid A in my book.
definitely one of the best vegan breakfasts in london. served from 9am-11:30am daily.
oh, and please note this place seems entirely vegan, and the food is, but they use dairy milk in coffee. bastards!
a super trendy pizzeria just opened up in westwood this week called 800 degrees, and as of today they carry daiya cheese to make vegan pizzas. the crust and sauce are vegan too, so knock yourself out. supposedly they make pizzas in 60 seconds OR LESS. i have no idea how that’s even possible, but people have been raving about this place.
i’m addicted to this recipe—-i probably make it twice a month. it’s perfect if you crave the taste of traditional cheesy spinach artichoke dip, except this stuff is vegan and way low in fat. check out the recipe here.
if you know me, you know i’m always on the hunt for the greatest vegan cheese ever. well as of right now, i can tell you that vegusto is the clear winner. i’ve tried pretty much every brand out there, and this one is by far the best.
i tried this swiss-made stuff in paris, and unfortunately it’s not available in the US yet. (rumor is, it will be later this year!) if you ever get a chance to eat or buy vegusto, DO IT. it blows all the other ones (daiya, cheezly, follow your heart) out of the water.
