Vegan and Gluten Free Brunch in Vienna

Not only did we recently sign a lease on a Prius (because – San Francisco – I told the dealer that we were conditioned to lean towards Prius since they are EVERYWHERE), but I am also writing this blog on a new to me 12” Macbook (thanks Martin!). I know what you’re thinking, “how BASIC.”

You’re right. It’s all terribly basic. The Prius, the Macbook, and most of all that this is a post about brunch! But hey fellow avocado toast loving millennials- if you can’t beat em join em I say! So here comes a super BASIC post about the awesome vegan and gluten free brunches I recently had in Vienna. 😂

Tusker House in Disney’s Animal Kingdom – Vegan & Gluten Free review

Friends,

It has been a long week which started off with a spontaneous flight to Austria due to a family emergency. Things are looking up on that front and in order to maintain some normalcy, I am back with another Disney dining review! This time Tusker House- it almost needs no introduction being such a staple in the vegan disney world. Yes, it has characters and they’re fun; Yes, it has a super fun immersive atmosphere and that’s fun; but none of that is why we go. We go because the food is crazy delicious! Are you like me and can happily eat your weight in plantains? Well then you must make a reservation at Tusker House!

The best gluten free & vegan counter service meals in Walt Disney World

Have you ever had a moment where you thought to yourself, “I can’t look at another portion of fries again?” No. That’s madness am I right? Who could ever get sick of french fries? They are golden salty greasy sticks of deliciousness and such a treat! Alas, if you eat them almost everyday such a thought does eventually come. On our first trip to Disney World two years ago we thought to ourselves exactly this! It was hard to find gluten free and vegetarian food. We had such crappy meals guys. Fortunately our lesson has been learned, more research has been done mostly with the help of the Facebook group: veg disney, and this trip we ate like royalty! I am happy to report that we did not eat french fries at any meal!

Disney World Dining Reviews – Jungle Skipper Canteen

I LOVE the Jungle Cruise as much as the next person. It’s so fun to hop on those boats and listen to all the corny and sarcastic jokes from the skippers. The first time we ever went on it in Disneyland we didn’t know this was the spiel and felt so awkward! Like, “oh! Is he allowed to say that?! Will this person get fired???” I laugh so much when I think of that now. 😂 Serious Disney fans will also appreciate the nostalgia of a ride that was so close to Walt Disney’s heart. So of course when I heard there is a new restaurant in the Magic Kingdom based on that ride with a vegan item on the menu. Well, it was the first reservation I made when we started planning our Walt Disney World vacation!  Continue reading “Disney World Dining Reviews – Jungle Skipper Canteen”

German Chocolate Müsli

Homesickness. An ailment that affects all expats at one point or another. My hubby claims to never experience such a condition, yet he orders traditional vegetarian Austrian dishes in every restaurant whenever we are home. Funny, I don’t remember there being an obsession with Käsespätzle before the move?

It was this particular condition that possessed me to hoard an empty box of Müsli in our tiny Dublin apartment. Yes. After I finished the box, I kept it! Partially because, as I sighed to my husband, “it’s the best Müsli I ever had!” and the other part being that I consumed the first half of said Müsli box while frolicking freely under the Vienna sun. I tried to find this delicious Müsli online from a place that would ship to Ireland reasonably but to no avail. So what is a homesick girl to do?

I made it myself.

Heuriger Feuerwehr Wagner – A true Austrian experience! Vegan, Gluten Free, Vegetarian

Heuriger Feuerwehr Wagner knows that I am writing this review as they asked me why I was photographing everything (fair question!). What they don’t know is that last year at Christmas they were put to the ultimate test when they hosted the Christmas party of an international school I worked at. Let me paint the picture for you: about 50 staff members representing over 20 different nationalities and at least 10 had varying food allergies/intolerances. What a nightmare! The common solution is to make one allergy friendly dish and call it a day. Feuerwehr Wagner needed no solution. They have a full allergy friendly menu and we were invited to just pick out what we like!

People’s Park Market Dun Laoghaire

I could tell you in a heartbeat what my favorite thing about living in Dublin is – being close to the ocean. In a mere 10-20 minutes in different directions on the DART train one can find themselves smelling fresh ocean air. I am obsessed with it. As soon as I step off the train, the moment the salty goodness fills my lungs, I start to relax. The sound of the ocean starts to ring in my ears along with the chatter of the seagulls. Heaven. On a Sunday there is no better seaside spot than Don Laoghaire because of the People’s Park Market. The ukulele group is a great reason to go but the second reason? Food! Lots and lots of food!
