Trip Recap: The Food


I am vegan, which means I don't eat any meat, fish, or dairy.  Often, while traveling, I cannot be  strict, otherwise I may not be able to eat at all! The Hubby supplied me with almonds, sunflower seeds, and a few sandwiches, but we were in the UK for over a week.  To my delight, almost every restaurant or pub that we went to had vegan food.  I ate hummus and pita chips, falafel sandwiches with beets, and a delightful jackfruit gyro before attending "Twelfth Night" by William Shakespeare at the Globe Theatre.

At The Albert!
"The Albert is a Grade II listed pub located at 52 Victoria Street in Victoria, London, about 0.4 miles (0.64 km) southwest of Westminster Abbey. Built in 1862 by the Artillery Brewery, the pub retains its striking fa├žade and Victorian features that were undamaged during The Blitz in World War II. The Albert was named in tribute to Queen Victoria's husband, Albert, Prince Consort." as found online.
I'll admit to eating fish and chips at The Albert; I mean, we were in England!  DUH!

Tasty Vegan tartine repast in Covent Garden

Porridge and tea in Bath
The porridge was made with milk, and I didn't think to ask our server to put it on the side before placing my order, but it was very yummy, and surprisingly filling!  I couldn't even finish that huge bowl.

At Comins Tea, having a pot of Sencha Green tea
And I drank tea at every opportunity.  Breakfast Tea, Earl Grey, and any manner of green teas too.  YUMMMMMM.....

That is great that you were able to find vegan offerings. I'm a vegetarian and can find veggie options pretty much everywhere. My brother is vegan and has lived in many places around the world. He's definitely had hard times sometimes, but overall I think he's maintained his vegan diet. Loving your trip recaps!

Mmmm, fish and chips. I live on the prairies and what decent fish there is costs a king's ransome, so I haven't had fish and chips for years. You need to be in England or the Maritimes for that.

Thank Cod you had fish and chips--it was the first thing we thought of when we saw the post title. We started salivating! Now we have to go eat kibble. ::Sigh:: We're glad you found it easy to get vegan fare, though.

Loved the 'sustenance' shot. MOL!

So I guess that means you didn't eat any haggis. Smart move. :)
