KONOI: Hemp Mylk Bar in Vienna

13 janvier 2017 § Poster un commentaire

My friend and I were on our way to visit Belvédère and came across a small café with large windows and a very appealing interior. I really never thought I would find a hemp mylk bar ..in Vienna! We came back after our visit, very excited to taste it. In case you were wandering whether we went « high », I can tell you that we didn’t. Hemp is still a source of controversy as it is assumed that this plant has the same effects as marijuana (they share the same scientific name of Cannabis Sativa), but they are two distinct varieties. You can find all the information on the Mylk Bar’s website herehemp_hulled_milk_bar_vienna_wien_best_vegan_sugarsheet_travel_austria

I already saw Hemp mylk on store shelves in New York but they were containing additives+thickeners and was not very thrilled to try these versions. Hemp is particularly interesting for vegans and vegetarians because of its rich nutritional values: it contains the good fat -omega 3, and all of the 9 essential amino acids, which makes it a really good source of plant based protein. In France you can find hulled hemp in organic stores (to sprinkle in your salads, soups..) and in the US, it is sold as a superfood in powder and oil.Konoi_hemp_milk_bar_vienna_sugarsheet_vegan_protein_best.JPG

You can guess, as a specialized mylk bar, it is freshly made every morning by Benoit and Kumiko, the adorable owners who are from Geneva. The menu is all about that magic plant: in smoothies, shakes, coffee and dishes: wraps, salads. If you just want to try the mylk, choose the « original », lightly sweetened with dates and a nutty flavor. hemp-milk-bar_sugarsheet_vienna_vegan_vegetarian_travel

Maybe in the future they will expand their menu with desserts made with hemp flour? Looks like possibilities are endless!

Erin McKenna’s Bakery – New York

24 mars 2016 § 2 Commentaires

A bakery I wanted to go long before arriving in New York: it used to be called Babycakes, the name changed recently for the owner’s name. Unless you are being told, you will not be able to guess that the treats here are gluten free and vegan. It means that there are no eggs and dairy butter, ingredients commonly found in pastry.

This post is dedicated to one of my vegan friend who cannot eat macarons because they contain egg. Erin McKenna is a bakery that will finally please everyone!

I first tried their donuts because how a bakery does a donut says it all. And I was very impressed by Erin’s version. The Samoa and vanilla flavors are to die for. I wish I lived in the area for having them for breakfast. Erin McKenna Broome Street vegan Glutenfree bakery best sugarsheet

  Apart from donuts, Erin’s bakery is famous for cupcakes. If you like them as much as I love donuts, you will like this place.

  In case New York is too far for you but are impatient to taste her pastries, she has a cookbook with all the bakery’s recipes. The butter is replaced by Coconut oil, the flour is by Bob’s Red Mill. The ingredients have been carefully chosen by Erin and you will feel less guilty when eating a donut here!

The first Rose Bakery that has opened in the left Bank of Paris is at la Maison Rouge, a contemporary art gallery located near Quai de la Râpée in the 12th arrondissement. I already wrote an article about Rose Bakery last December, you can find it here. The particularity of this RB is the bright space and and the proximity with the art installations. You literally have the impression to eat inside the museum while playing table soccer. The decor of the restaurant changes three times per year, maybe it will be different to my pictures at your next visit!

For vegetarians, Rose Bakery is a top spot as many dishes on the menus are suitable for them. Contrary to the other addresses, it is very calm as few people know there is a RB here. Perfect for a quiet week end brunch on the rive droite if you want to avoid the crowd!

Broken Biscuits – Paris

9 août 2015 § 6 Commentaires

Do you remember when I was talking about the exquisite pastries at Honor Café, rue Saint Honoré? They are from Broken Biscuits a tiny little coffee/cake shop in the dead end street Passage Rochebrune. Cakes and pastries are freshly baked here everyday by Christine O’Sullivan who was a contestant in the Irish MasterChef.

The muffin carrot cake and the lemon pavot are beyond what you usually expect from these pastries, they are completely addictive! I don’t like lemon but Christine’s version is rich and mega moist. You can also have breakfast with a bowl of granola or lunch with quiches and sandwiches. I will try them for sure on my next visits!

If it is too far for you, you can always enjoy the pastries at Honor Café, Loustic & Fondation coffee shops. As it is a really tiny inside, try to avoid rush times.

Creative street food – Seoul

5 avril 2015 § 4 Commentaires

The most original and impressive street food can be found in South Korea: from rainbow cotton candy to more traditional specialties, it is food heaven at any time of the day. And like fashion, there are trends: currently it seems like Churros are very popular as I often see people forming a line in Itaewon and Apgujeong. I really appreciate how food is presented with creativity and how delicious it is.  strawberry mochi seoul street food myoungdong food travel south korea mochi rabbit seoul south korea travel dessert food myoung dong where  I recently discovered those strawberry mochi covered with red bean paste in Myoung-dong and also the best Tteokbokki -떡볶이 in Samcheong-dong area. Tteokbokki can be spicy and hot, if you are not used to eat this kind of food, be cautious. It reminds me of my childhood, and it is a dish which is enjoyed at any moment of the day.hanok street food seoul tteokbokki south korea spicy hot

And below: not just cotton candy ..but Rainbow cotton candy! It was also in Myoung-dong -명동.rainbow cotton candy seoul street food myoungdong foodie food deliciouswaffle seoul street food myoung dong delicious ice cream south korea travelice cream waffle seoul south korea food myoung dong restaurant

If you want to try a traditional korean dessert, have a « Ho-ppang » -호빵, which is rice cake filled with honey or brown sugar. It is a sweet treat any Korean has tried at least once during their childhood. vegetarian seoul dessert street food travel south korea restaurant

I came across many vegetarians in Seoul. Finding vegan dishes in South Korea can be a challenge with the language barrier. All the food pictured in this article are suitable for them.
