The Salad Concept Chiang Mai

The Salad Concept Chiang Mai The Salad Concept is such a clever idea for capturing the Chinese and Westerner tourist market in Chiang Mai.

Updated: Banh Mi Boys Toronto

Updated: Banh Mi Boys Toronto I had serious cravings for steamed bao from Banh Mi Boys during our four month road trip across America and Canada. Four months is an awfully long time to crave food. Particularly when you have days of eating the same meal. Or days where your only options are from fast […]

Anchan Vegetarian Restaurant Chiang Mai

Anchan Vegetarian Restaurant Chiang Mai Thailand I keep scratching my head and wondering how Anchan Vegetarian Restaurant is only ranked 6th out of 1,636 restaurants in Chiang Mai on TripAdvisor, and not number 1! I could eat at this restaurant every day for the rest of my life and still be excited by the meals. […]

Butter Chicken Roti Toronto

Butter Chicken Roti Toronto Canada Sometimes I think the gods are just having a laugh when people keep thinking I’m asking for bacon when I say vegan. On the first occasion, I was at an Indian buffet restaurant in Hamilton. The majority of the dishes had every ingredient listed, but a couple of tasty looking […]

Senator Restaurant Toronto

Senator Restaurant Toronto  When you eat vegan food, diners can be hit or miss. Most often, a complete miss. And yet, I have a strange fascination with them.

Wild Flour Banff

Wild Flour Banff One thing I wasn’t prepared for in Banff was the Aussies. You’ll laugh at this, because I’m Australian. But they were everywhere. You’d think you were in Thredbo or the Snowies, not in Canada. And not only were they prolific, they were ocker as, mate. Accents are a funny thing. A lot of people in […]

Tillie Gort’s Cafe Pacific Grove California

Tillie Gort’s Cafe Pacific Grove California “What can I do for you?” came the brusque question with a raised eyebrow when I walked in. Perhaps I looked a little vague and it disconcerted the owner. Or maybe it was my accent – I was asked to repeat myself several times. When the owner deciphered my […]

Soul Groove Civic Center San Francisco

Soul Groove Civic Center San Francisco “Do you have any dietary requirements?” This is a question that can strike fear in the hearts of people with food allergies, vegetarians, and vegans. Or it does in mine, at least. I get awfully anxious about inconveniencing friends — or being interrogated by an angry person about why […]

California Academy of Sciences San Francisco

The California Academy of Sciences is a glorious mash-up of aquarium, gardens, geography, science and early history museums. It’s great for everyone from toddlers to adults, and it’s my favourite tourist attraction in San Francisco. The Academy is split over several levels: The Rainforest, the Aquarium, the Galapagos Islands, the Earthquake Zone, the Rooftop Garden, […]
