Vegan Week in Review

Written by

Nomad Dosa has announced that they are moving to South Congress! Their new address, 1603 S. Congress, is in the same food truck lot as vegan-friendly Hey Cupcake! They’ll be at their new location by May 19th with new hours of operation: Monday-Sunday, 11:30 am-8:30 pm. I can’t wait to be able to run around SoCo and grab a dosa for dinner and a cupcake for dessert!

ATX Vegan Drinks last Friday was a blast. It was great to see so many new faces. We’ve got pictures of the event up in our gallery. Our next event is in the works, so stay tuned for details.

– Doron Petersan, of Sticky Fingers Bakery and Cupcake Wars fame will be at MonkeyWrench Books on Sunday, May 20th for a book signing of her new book, Sticky Fingers’ Sweets: 100 Super-Secret Vegan Recipes. There will be a vegan dessert potluck at 6pm and the book talk/signing will start at 7pm. With recipes for everything from cupcakes and cookies to cheesecake and biscotti, I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy.

– I’ve always wanted to go on a cruise, but the idea of being stuck on a boat, without decent vegan options, sounded more like my worst nightmare than a vacation. The all-veg “Holistic Holiday at Sea” cruise has been around for a a while now, but now there is another decent veg option just announced from Holland America. Their entire line of cruise ships has added an all-vegetarian menu (with vegan options) to their main dining rooms. Hopefully, this will be a trend that continues to all the other cruise lines.

Veggie Haggis– VegNews has created a round-up of some of the oddest products ever veganized, including caviar, duck, foie gras, and haggis. This list caught my attention, as I have had a can of vegan haggis sitting in my kitchen for months now, which I have been hesitant to try. Growing up, I wasn’t the most adventurous eater, but as a vegan, I’ve been trying to open myself up to new foods. How many of these unique products have you tried?

    I too would love to cruise with vegan options and feel comfortable about it. I was looking at the one you mentioned above until a friend of mine, who cruises all the time, showed me the reviews for both the ship and the cruise line. They have some of the worst customer service ratings amongst the cruise industry. So buyer beware. I would love to find someone that has actually gone on the MSC Poesia for The Holistic Holiday at Sea cruise.

      I’m surprised to hear about the bad reviews for the cruise ship. I’ve had a few friends that have been on the cruise, and while I’ve never specifically asked them about their trip, they’ve never said anything bad about it. I’ll be sure to ask one of them the next time I see them, and get some more details.
