A traveling vegan

I love to travel. It’s become an addiction, but one I can feel good about because it offers me a chance to learn new things, see new places, and experience new cultures. When I became a vegan, I worried that it would be difficult to travel, especially to Europe.

Last week, I visited my good friend in the Czech Republic. I’ve been there before, but this time, my strict “no dairy” rule was going to make eating a little more difficult. Not to fear, my friend did some research and found some wonderful vegetarian restaurants, and we ate a few meals at her house to save money. I’d like to highlight a few of the delicious food options.

DhalLaibon

Laibon restaurant in Český Krumlov offered a wide selection of vegetarian meals that were easily veganized by removing the sour cream or cheese options. I had dhal with sauerkraut. Kraut is a staple in this part of Europe, and I was just tickled that they added it to a traditional Indian dish, so I couldn’t resist. It was delicious! My friend almost had to take my fork away so I would stop eating.

Dobré čajovna

The Dobré čajovna is a tea bar throughout Czech Republic. We went there to warm up and have a nice plate of hummus with vegetables and pita. A perfect snack after wandering the cobblestone streets of Prague.

Middle Eastern food

I went to Karlovy Vary, a Russian spa town, with no real plans for food. I was starving when I arrived, so I went on a hunt for a plant-based meal. Fortunately, I found a Tehranian restaurant. Middle Eastern restaurants are normally a safe bet because of their dietary rules. There are always fresh, delicious vegetarian options at Middle Eastern restaurants. After professing my deepest apologies for this incident, I enjoyed stuffed grape leaves and a small salad along with a wonderful conversation with the Iranian chef and owner.

Maitrea

Raw cheesecake

Wow. Just wow. Maitrea is a vegetarian restaurant in the middle of Prague. The warm, peaceful atmosphere only enhances the delicious food. There were vegetarianized versions of Czech food, and a variety of other ethnic food offerings. I had the black bean burrito with vanilla soymilk. For dessert, raw cheesecake with strawberry sauce. I can’t say enough good things about this place.

Loving Hut

An international chain of vegan (that’s right, vegan!) restaurants, the Loving Hut offers a buffet or a menu full of vegan options. Most meals originate in Asia, but they even had vegan chocolate cake. I had to get it, just because I could! This was such a fun restaurant, and I’m glad it was in the mall so that more people can enjoy healthy vegan options.
