When I tell people I'm vegan they always ask what I eat. Here are some vegan meals and snacks I ate while on holiday in Wales. We stayed in Aberdovey and went to Aberystwyth, both in the county of Ceredigion, and visited Macynlleth in Powys.
Bear of Amsterdam, Aberdovey.
We had our childhood holidays in Aberdovey, and mum always took me and my brother to the Bear of Amsterdam cafe as a special treat. It's a cute little cafe where I had a simple but huuuge baked potato with beans. I shared a side of chips with Joe and they were epic, best chips of the holiday!
Bay of Bengal, Aberdovey.
I only ate onion bhajis and popadoms from the Bay of Bengal Indian takeaway in Aberdovey, because I was feeling a bit full of food after eating out so much! But they were both tasty and Joe's curry looked yummy too.
Lemon Sorbet, Aberdovey.
One of the ice cream shops in Aberdovey, I think it was The Fridge but I'm not sure, let me read the ingredients of their sorbets, they were suitable for vegans and I had a lemon one walking along the beach. Yum.
Crimson Rhino, Aberystwyth.
I found Crimson Rhino, a veggie/vegan cafe on trip advisor when I was planning our holiday, and I was excited to try it. We were going to have a drink and a snack, so I started with a vegan avocado whip chocolate muffin, real eat tomato and garlic quinoa chips and a lemonade, but the food looked so good going past us we stayed for lunch too! I had falafels and patatas bravas. Joe had a tofu burger and chips. The falafel would have benefited from being in a wrap with salad, but the patatas were yummy and I tried a bit of Joe's burger and it was the best tofu I've tasted! They had intriguing homemade vegan icecream too, but the only non-soya flavour was coconut salted caramel which I didn't fancy.
The Chip Box, Aberystwyth.
I went to uni in Aberystwyth and I always used to get my chips from the Chip Box, so I had to go back. The chips are super yummy and I love that they come in cardboard boxes rather than polystyrene.
There's no supermarket in Aberdovey (only an expensive corner shop), so I was keen to buy some snacks in Aberystwyth. There are loads of vegan options in Lidl, the popcorn and vegan orange chocolate were specially yummy. We bought some broccoli, garlic and pasta too for a healthy homecooked meal one night.
The Quarry Cafe, Machynlleth.
I want to pack up the Quarry Cafe and take it home with me! Everything is veggie or vegan, my food was delicious and it has pretty fairy lights and bunting!
The Coop, Machynlleth.
We visited the Coop in Macynthlleth for one thing and one thing only, vegan doughnuts!
Tell me, have you eaten anything vegan and exciting on your holidays?
