Glasgow

Look! It's an actual decent picture! This proves that my bad picture taking is just down to the rubbish lighting in my flat! Must get a lamp...

Anyway, we went to Glasgow on Friday. The first thing we did on getting off of the bus was go to the Grassroots Cafe and get a 'full vegan breakfast'. It's the best breakfast I've ever had which is why we pretty much get it every time we go to the Grassroots Cafe. it consists of toast, beans, sausages, potato scones, tomatoes, mushrooms, and tempeh bacon. One of the other reasons we get this every time is that to be honest, the rest of the menu isn't particularly appetising.

We went to Mono on Saturday and met some lovely vegans. Me and Gary both had burgers (much better than the burger from Grassroots or The 13th Note, in my opinion) and they were damn tasty. They came with a vegan cheese slice (I'm guessing probably tofutti), mayo, onions, and mushrooms on top. They were ridiculously messy to eat, but that was half the fun. As you can see I didn't take a photo, I was really hungry and I forgot, so shoot me. We then went across the road to The 13th Note Cafe to get cheesecake. This cheesecake has to be eaten to be believed... So creamy... Mmmmm... Cheesecake. No picture of cheesecake either for aforementioned reason.

In conclusion, a good time was had by all, but my stomach really wasn't happy with me at the end of the day, so me and Gary groaned as we walked up the hill to get the bus home. I want more cheesecake...

Hi Lelly, we didn't see you at Mono, but then we don't know what you look like ! What time were you there ? us Glasgow vegans were having a meetup, 12 of us were there, scoffing lots of food from 3 till after 6. We were the ones with the couch and table up by the shop. Glad you like the big mono burger, they are so good. I had the butternut squash, stuffed with smoked tofu and creamy sauce, yum.

We were actually wondering where you guys were, because we knew you were meeting the same day we were, but we weren't sure which group you were. We were sitting down near the bar, we never ventured as far up as the shop! There were only 4 of us! We'll maybe venture back to Glasgow for the next GVN meetup.

That would be good :O) I must have walked by you to get my cheesecake order in.

By the way are you on Flickr ? we started the 'vegan virtual supper club' group, and there are lots of other vegan groups on it, like 'vegan yum yums' and 'vegan food bought and home made', not to mis out 'vegans just wanna have fun'. Flickr is great for showing other vegans what wonderful creations you've come up with in the kitchen, and drooling over other people's food. There is even a vegan cup cake group, from the new vegan cupcakes take over the world book, I've bought it but yet to try any. Anyway I'm 'extra-minty' on it, and Jey is there too. You could link this blog to it.

See you sometime at Mono :O)
