Vegan Guide to Hanoi

Our Vegan Guide to Hanoi was put together during a trip to the Vietnamese capital in September 2017.

Despite having spent many months in Vietnam over the last few years this was our first visit to Hanoi since 2010 and we were blown away by the amount of vegan options in town and the obvious explosion in vegan culture and lifestyle.

Below are the vegan spots we visited during the trip and at the end of our Vegan Guide to Hanoi you will find links to other useful vegan information online. Continue reading

Vegan Guide to Cambodia

Our Vegan Guide to Cambodia will help you find somewhere to eat delicious vegan food whilst exploring this wonderful country; it lists all of our favourite restaurants, links to other useful online vegan travel information about Cambodia and also a few restaurants we’ve not visited yet but other vegan travellers tell us that we should!

We love Cambodia, the Kingdom of Wonder, where you can immerse yourself in rich culture and history and soak up the vibrance of daily life at every turn. See lush green rice paddies and picture postcard rural landscapes, visit rainforests and waterfalls, tropical beaches, riverside towns, floating villages or fast growing urban cities; Cambodia has something for everyone.

Vegan Guide to Nha Trang

Nha Trang is the original beach resort in Vietnam and over the past 15 years has grown beyond all imagination; a sprawling city has emerged that isn’t for everyone but what hasn’t changed is the huge golden sand beach which seems to go on forever.

We’ve passed through a number of times and checked in to some of the best resorts in town but we’ve also sampled some pretty good vegan street food including a truly wonderful vegan ‘banh mi’ (baguette) which is a must for any vegan traveller visiting Nha Trang.

Here’s our Vegan Guide to Nha Trang which tells you where to get the best vegan food when you visit.

Is Vietnamese Coffee Vegan?!?

We used to say one of the best things about Vietnam was the coffee and like most people we’d extol the virtues of it’s taste not realising anything about it’s production. All that was before we found out that it’s often not vegan. It might be hard to believe that a drink made from beans isn’t vegan, but Vietnamese coffee has a hidden side that most people don’t know about.

Which is a shame, because done right, Cambodian food is delicious.

Since the Vegan Food Quest began, we’ve been travelling independently around South East Asia, exploring at our own pace and following our noses. We get tips and suggestions from other travellers, we chat to locals where we can and we observe a lot, although we also make a lot of mistakes which tends to teach us a thing or two.  Continue reading
