Samadhi Vegetarian Restaurant, Berlin

This wasn’t the friendliest place but the food was good. We already knew that there was a vegetarian restaurant called Samadhi around the area but I noticed their sign on our way to Brandenburg Gate. So, we popped in on the way back to have lunch (late lunch). We ordered a mix starter plate (below).… Continue reading Samadhi Vegetarian Restaurant, Berlin

Viasko Vegan Restaurant, Berlin

I must admit, Viasko was close to fiasco. The area was bad; we didn’t feel safe there. We had to walk for quite some time to get to the restaurant after taking the bus. Our waitress was very much like a walking catalog of a tattoo and piercing parlor and it wasn't a good first… Continue reading Viasko Vegan Restaurant, Berlin

Maitrea Vegetarian Restaurant, Prague – Czech Republic

When we arrived in Prague train station, we needed a taxi straight away but the taxi situation was scary. The signs led us to a wrong spot and the real taxi rank had a long queue already. We rang the guy who rented us an apartment in Old Town Square (Thomas) and asked what to… Continue reading Maitrea Vegetarian Restaurant, Prague – Czech Republic

Corn Omelette with Tomato and Cucumber Salad

Corn Omelette with Tomato and Cucumber Salad is perfect lunch for 2. I make this omelette in an electric non-stick pan, then cut it in half. Serving an omelette with a little bit of salad lightens things up a great deal. It is also nice with a dollop of mayonnaise mixed with Dijon mustard on… Continue reading Corn Omelette with Tomato and Cucumber Salad

Tabouleh, VegFusion style

Since spring is just around the corner, I thought this salad would freshen things up a little. This is a sharp and refreshing salad which makes a good side dish to falafels. My version of is slightly different. It is more on the kısır side than tabouleh. Hope you enjoy it. Tabouleh, VegFusion style Ingredients:… Continue reading Tabouleh, VegFusion style

Macéo, Paris

A postcard from Paris. Sacré-Cœur in Montmartre. Macéo was one of the greatest culinary experiences we had in Europe. It is a place I would go back in a heartbeat. Although it is not a fully vegetarian restaurant, they have many interesting vegetarian starters as well as main dishes on their menu. But first –Willi’s… Continue reading Macéo, Paris

Prinz Myshkin, Munich

A postcard from Munich. Rathaus (town hall) minus the rats. This place was recommended by two girls (really nice girls) we met on the train from Paris to Munich. We thought it was worth checking out. We did drop in for a late lunch after taking a few photos around Altstadt and doing some shopping… Continue reading Prinz Myshkin, Munich

Le Potager du Marais, revisited

We were at Le Potager du Marais in 2007 and it was a tiny little, long and narrow place back then. They seem to have moved next door which is bigger. It is still recommended to book before you go though. For those of you who didn’t read my 2007 review, Le Potager du Marias… Continue reading Le Potager du Marais, revisited

Turkish Coffee Machine

Every time I go back to Turkey, I bring back cooking magazines, my favourite authors’ new books, cookbooks and kitchen gadgets I cannot get in Australia. One of the kitchen gadgets I brought back with me this time around is a Turkish coffee maker. I actually had the intention of buying a cezve-style one which… Continue reading Turkish Coffee Machine
