London is becoming more and more vegan-friendly. With vegan food options becoming more readily available, brands focusing on vegan and cruelty-free beauty and vegan pop-ups popping up all over the place, you don’t have to go far to find animal-free treats!

The Retreat Kitchen has been on my “must visit” list since it opened its doors in February 2017. Just after its first birthday, I finally made it there. It was worth the wait.

My blog went pretty quiet in December. I went back “home home” to Sydney for my first family Christmas in almost a decade (!) and despite my best intentions to blog whilst away, my time was spent enjoying myself with family and friends.
I did spend a lot of time eating, which I like to think of as blog prep. And now that I’m back in chilly London, I’m excited to relive a little summer by sharing my best foodie finds from Sydney.
Norway may not be known for its meat-free cuisine but modern capital Oslo is happily full of veggie-friendly eateries. Continue reading “Travel Bites: The Best Vegan and Vegetarian Food in Oslo”
On my last visit back to Australia my mum and I went on a coffee date to a lovely little cafe she’d discovered within the suburbs of Sydney’s affluent North Shore. Continue reading “The Best Vegan Food at Sprout Wholefood Cafe in Sydney”
Although high tea is a very British tradition and I’ve lived in London for more than seven years now, I’d never actually been. I ended up popping that particular cherry when I was back in Sydney recently…
I recently hit the big three-oh. (Gasp!) Although – contrary to popular belief – my life didn’t drastically alter the second the clock ticked over into my thirtieth decade on this Earth, I admit that I’m already ruing the loss of the ability to state vaguely that I’m “twenty-something”.
Like most Nordic countries, Iceland isn’t a place that you immediately associate with vegetarian food. In a country known for dishing up lamb hot dogs, boiled sheep’s heads, smoked puffin, fermented shark and a lot of seafood, my vego friend and I wondered if we would struggle to find veggie-friendly options.

Glasgow was voted the Most Vegan-Friendly City in the UK by PETA in 2013 and The World’s Friendliest City in a Rough Guides poll in 2015. With two pretty awesome titles to its name, Glasgow was a city I’d been wanting to check out for a long time. Continue reading “Travel Bites: Late Lunches and Late Nights in Glasgow”
I am currently in the process of applying for British Citizenship, which means I’ve been without a passport for a couple of months. Which consequently means no trips abroad. Tough when you work in the travel industry but tougher when you have a friend visiting all the way from Australia and can’t hop over to mainland Europe with her… Continue reading “Travel Bites: A Vegetarian Guide to Edinburgh”
Vanilla Black had been at the top of my ‘must-try’ list of London’s vegetarian eateries for a very long time. A friend’s birthday (and subsequent birthday gift voucher) was finally excuse enough to visit the high-end restaurant that boasts prices a little heftier than those of my usual hang-outs. Continue reading “Review: Vegetarian Haute Cuisine at Vanilla Black”
The first time I went to Brighton a couple of years back (which incidentally was for my first ever Vegfest), I really wanted to dine at the well-renowned and award-winning vegetarian restaurant Food for Friends; sadly, it was completely booked out. I guess that’s what happens when you try to go the weekend a vegan festival is in town… Continue reading “Review: Food for Friends – Brighton, UK”
