G’day to you!
What’s new and exciting!?!? I miss hearing from you guys!! I’ve been reading all my regular blogs, just haven’t been commenting mucho...
I’m still not feeling myself, the 4.5 hour time difference is still kicking my bootay (a week later)!! We haven’t been getting to bed before 2amish and then up by 8:00am… brutal… I’m one tired (dairy free) cookie!!
Anywhoo.. onto the post… so much to write about, so little time!!
I don’t know if you every use HAPPY COW – but it’s a fantastic resource for finding vegetarian/vegan friendly restaurants all over the world – there are also fantastic recipes on the site too! (Even if you aren’t Veggie, most of the places are super healthy too)
I used it before we left for a trip, and chuckled when I found out that Newfoundland has 1 vegetarian/vegan friend restaurant, for the entire province!
Of course I begged and pleaded with Dave to come with me!! He must love me, because it’s tricky to get him to eat a meatless meal!!
It was a super cute place, and in true St. John’s fashion, it was inside a colorful, heritage style building!
a few minutes after we arrived, a line up started and the place was packed!!
So we just enjoyed the warm sunshine… while waiting for our lunch!
I ended up getting the “Olive It” Sandwich with a fruit beet salad on the side. It was clearly huge!!
The sandwich was full of olive and sundried tomatoe tapenade. I honestly wasn’t a huge fan of the sandwich, it was a little to olivey for me – not sure what I was expecting, but the beet salad was amazing – note to self, make a beet salad with fruit… and balsamic dressing!
and D got the vegetarian chilli…
Cute side story – while we were waiting for our meal to come I noticed a little drawer in the table, when I opened it, I was excited to see a whole bunch of little notes… here were my favourites…
Click to make larger – the stories are super cute!!
of course I wrote one myself… but you’ll have to go to the restaurant to see what I wrote ;)
All in all – the restaurant was a great experience, I wouldn’t order that sandwich again, but there was tons on the menu I was dying to try!!
Before I forget… I also bought a vegan brownie from there…
I was also super impressed with the prices – for 2 meals, plus a side salad and a brownie, it came to under $20!!! Gotta love that!
Thanks Sprout – great meal – I hope to make it back to visit again soon!!
Hope you guys are having a lovely day!!
I would love to hear from you… my comment section has been super quite and lonely lately!! Come say hi!!!!!!!!!
