VEGETARIAN EUROPE

300 PLACES TO EAT IN EUROPE’S TOP TRAVEL DESTINATIONS

Traveling to Europe and want to eat meatless meals? Play it safe by taking a copy of Vegetarian Europe by Alex Bourke.

European vacations are a cinch with this new guide to vegetarian eateries. Detailed descriptions include vegetarian and vegan dishes and desserts, plus prices and openings hours, for a hassle free time in 23 countries.

In Poland, try Bar Vega in Krakow. They have a live pianist on Sundays, and offer soya kebabs, freshly made juices, and the best pierogi!

Want to hold hands in Paris? Visit Piccolo Teatro, a long established vegetarian restaurant, popular with couples, as they have candles on the tables. However, it’s quite a small place, so you won’t get any further than holding hands. They carry tempeh and miso dishes, salads, and more.

Need to waltz over to Austria? Try Rupp’s and party. This vegetarian pub with 262 whiskeys is run by a vegetarian, in a working class neighborhood with a great pub atmosphere. Choose from chili without carne, goulash, or soya schnitzel. You can also visit Café Teitelbaum, a modern kosher café next to a gallery, with lots of papers to read. There’s also loads of bagels and strudel. The veg curry and rice with a crusty bread and mango chutney are vegan.

Stopping in London? Don’t make any cows mad. Visit CTJ Organic Restaurant. The food is mainly Chinese and Thai, with some Japanese. Or try Beatroot restaurant and choose from a combination of 16 hot specials. Sample vegan chocolate dream cake with vegan custard and vegan tofu cheesecake.

If you hike over to Switzerland, visit Hiltl in Zurich. According to the Guinness Book of Records, this is the oldest vegetarian restaurant in Europe. There are many Indian, continental, and Far Eastern specialties. If just thirsty, there are oodles of wines, some organic.

Alex Bourke gave up a career as a software engineer to set up Vegetarian Guides Ltd. to map the world for vegetarians and vegans. His aim is to make it easy to eat cruelty-free anywhere in the world. He spent the last ten years traveling around Europe where he met 29 local contributors to Vegetarian Europe. He is bilingual in French, fluent in Italian, getting there in Russian, and struggling in half a dozen other languages.

Vegetarian Europe is full of fun personal notes, such as Alex Bourke’s comments about “April in Paris.” When I first moved to Paris I thought I’d arrived in Vegan Hell. Surely, I figured, les Miserables must be a play about vegans in Paris starving to death. But after two years in the French capital I discovered to my delight that I could not have been more wrong. Paris, as well as being the most romantic and exciting city in Europe is full of fantastic places to eat, mostly hidden away in the cobbled sidestreets. So let’s venture beyond baguettes and berets into the treasures of vegan Paris...
