Olive Dolci – vegan ice cream shop Rome

I can’t believe it that I didn’t checked Happy Cow good enough to find out that Rome has a whole vegan ice cream shop!! Luckily I had still a free day left as I was teaching nearly every day yoga and stretching classes ๐Ÿ˜…

This place is not only awesome because it has only vegan ice cream, but of its special way to produce it!! It’s all made of olive oil!! And as I am the biggest olive oil lover this place was heaven for me!!

Of course the different tastes are not all olive oil flavored! Actually you’ll taste nothing of olive oil in it! But it makes such a creamy consistence for flavores like Lolla Nonna, which is like Nutella, peanut or steccialtella! 

It took me a quite while to choose my flavors because there where a lot i never tried before, like white wine, red wine, black sesame and and and ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™‚

So I decided for Goji, green tea, Lolla Nonna and coconut! Later I got to taste a bit of the olive oil ice cream and it was sooo delicious only with a really soft taste of olive oil! For me it could even have been more ๐Ÿ˜œ

But that’s still not all! They have ice cream on a stick and a few different cakes, made of olive oil base as well ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

I don’t have to mention that I had to take also an ice cream on a stick ๐Ÿ˜…

This by far is my favorite ice cream place in Rome and I can’t wait to come back to taste a lot more of all these, I guess over 30, different flavored ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†

Via Emanuele Filiberto 140/142 &

Green Garden delivery

And again we tested a food delivery! By now you might know that we love to order food ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ

This time we tried a few things of Green Garden delivery and are absolutely excited about it!! Not everything is vegan but we found some really nice vegan foods on their menu! There are also a lot of extra ingredients which you can add to everything like dried tomatoes, artichokes or vegetable quinoa! If you want you can order completely gluten and sugar free! And of course fully vegan! They even told me on the phone that the salad sauce is not vegan because of the vinegar! And this really is advanced vegan knowledge which should be given with every food delivery! ๐Ÿค“ Continue reading Green Garden delivery

Sixty Degrees

That’s the thing with Berlin: there is such a huge amount of ever expanding vegan discoveries to be explored that it’s difficult to keep up with it all sometimes.

That’s why we are quite happy if people get in touch with us about suggestions, letting us know about new vegan spots or new vegan dishes on the menu.

This is how we found out about Sixty Degrees, who are a vegetarian coffee shop, serving speciality coffee, breakfasts, lunch, sandwiches, smoothies, cakes and a lovely typical Berliner atmosphere with a book exchange corner and changing art exibitions. ย  Continue reading Sixty Degrees

Black Cat Vegan Cafe, London

bc12i

So here we are, hungry vegan food hunters tracking down a colorful flyer promise of non profit, 100% vegan food that we found hanging on the blackboard of our favorite of all yoga studios: Jivamukti. Arrived in Hackney with roaring stomachs we don’t get disapointed of the menu – no we are in sheer delight of all the variety that is offered here! There is so much that we want to try, so we decide to take three main menus and starters and share them between us. Whilst we eagerly eye the cakes on the counter we know It will take a looong time until we leave this place and we get comfortable with a Hot Chocolate topped with marshmallows.

While we are waiting for our orders we explore the shop and find lots of bargains like a lovely Jutebeutel for 5 Pounds and a pizza cheese for 1.50.  You can find snacks, chocolate bars, faux meat and cheese, vegan household items and there is also a lot of interesting books about Veganism, Vegan cookery books or also anarchy literature. Everything is really cheap, of course because it is a non profit shop. Yeah!

bc10ibc11i

The Main dishes are all really tasty and we feel that everything is homemade and fresh. We find out that we all three think that the Seitan Sandwich tastes outstanding good and we like the Lentil Pie with Mashed potato and Kale. The Burger is of course amazing as well. Its the first time for us to try a sausage baked in a bread roll and we wonder how this could happen?!

bc4ibc3ibc1wbc5i

We can’t behave and order our cakes and brownies with whipped cream and large scoops of ice cream and have an amazing munch on the end of an amazing munch! Life is good with places like these! We are grateful to have found such an affordable, graceful, pleasure bringing institution and plan a return as soon as we can. meoooow!
