Happy Cow is an app and it has been my saviour when travelling anywhere in the world !!!

Travelling planning is made easier knowing what restaurant options you have depending on your destination. If few options are  available, I might be tempted in renting a hotel or a condo with a kitchen. Some destinations such as Paris as an example, where there are a multitude of choices of restaurants & cafés, the need for a kitchen becomes less of an issue.

Since 1999, HappyCow has helped users find over 90,000 restaurants, cafés, and grocery stores in over 180 countries. Read 425,000 + reviews and photos. With HappyCow, you can search for vegan, vegetarian or vegan-friendly restaurants, bakeries, health food stores, catering, farmers markets, juice bars, and coffee shops!

RECIPES

Orange Cake

 

Light tasting with a smooth texture, perfect for afternoon tea or anytime ! I used a Bundt shape but you can certainly use any shape pan you prefer.

3 cups of all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp making soda
Pinch of salt
1 cup sugar
1 cup of coconut milk
1 cup of plant based yogurt
1 cup of plant based butter (softened)
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp orange extract
1/2 cup freshly squeezer orange juice
I used icing sugar as a topping but you may certainly personalise it with other toppings such as orange zest, shredded coconut or other

Mix all dry together in a bowl and all wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Add the liquid bowl to the dry and stir well until smooth.

Add to a greased pan, I greased mine with oil spray  and bake for 1 hour afterwards. Let cake cool down completely and ready to serve !

Radis

Radis (restaurantradis.com) is another Vegan restaurant I discovered, it is located at 361 Rue Bernard West in Montreal. A must ! We were warmly greeted and the service was excellent. As a main course we had a Calzone stuffed with mushrooms, beyond delicious. The portions were quite generous but I could not possibly pass on dessert. If you are to look at the top Picture I absolutely had to taste the Lemon pie, and while savouring our main course the pastry chef…….. proceeds to the Cannoli filling…… , Well ! we could not possibly not taste those as well, so we decided to order one Moka & Hazelnut and one Vanilla & Pistachio !
