What else could I be talking about then ‘VeganMoFo‘.
This year I’m a little bit more prepared. As the goal is at least 20 posts, I went through my cookbook library, collected 20 and decided that I had to prepare at least one thing from every book:
Did you know I’ll be celebrating my 6 anniversary of VeganMoFo?
Although I only live 310 km away from Paris, it was only last week that I made my very first real visit to Paris. And of course I had to check out what Paris has to offer to Vegans.
On our first evening we had diner at Café Ginger. This place is a big recommend. Very nice people, cozy, not to expensive and good food:
Cafe Ginger (neighbourhood La Bastille)
Of course we also had to try the local Loving Hut. The crêpe was the most expensive dish on the menu, but was definetely worth it. Although I was a little dissapointed with the side salad.
Loving Hut (neighbourhood La République)
A big recommend goes to Hank burgers. It is a very tiny place but the offer is just great and cheap:
Hank (neighbourhood Marais)
We wanted to visit more restaurants and shops but as our visit was in the first week of august, most places were closed for the holidays.
There can be only one big conclusion: Paris has a lot to offer for vegans.

This year vegans are being spoiled during the Gentse Feesten. There are 2 vegan pop up restaurants, 1 pop up veggie frituur and 2 vegan food trucks:
- Foodstorms: chef quality vegan cuisine
- Living food: raw kitchen
- De Natuurfrituur: as it says french fries and veggie snacks
- VivaVeva – Loving Hut Express: food truck
- Just look your mom: food truck with burgers and desserts
The first place we visited was ‘De Natuurfrituur':
French fries with boskroket and bitterballen.
Seeing the V…word more and more.
It’s really warm these days in Gent. So, I was so happy to discover that you could actually buy vegan icecream on the streets of Gent:
