Vegan Fast-Food in New York

THANK YOU, by Chloe, for not just being yet another fancy, expensive clean-eating, raw-food, annoyingly healthy restaurant, but for serving greasy, delicious fast-food that make meat-eaters think twice! I’m a vegetarian, and so I’m always happy to discover places like this one! The place (we visited the one in Bleecker Street) was super cozy and down-to-earth. Next to me sat an all-american New Jersey dad with his little kid crawling back and...

Only regulars/locals seemed to stop by for their morning...

I had done quite a bit of research for an article about coffeeshops in the city, and Distrikt Coffee was amongst the places I wanted to visit and write about. The third wave coffee phenomenon has really taken europe by storm, and it seems like speciality coffeeshops are popping up in cities like Berlin every single...

Review: The Organic LAB, Copenhagen

That my decision also has positive consequences for the environment is only a bonus. Never the less, I...
