London Vegan Bird Takes New York: Part 2

Here is Part 2 of some of my fave restaurants in NY, which all happen to be in Brooklyn as that’s where we stayed (highly recommended).  I wish we had more time to visit the many other places on my extensive list but I think we had a good go!

Bliss Cafe

Located on super cool, Bedford Avenue in Brooklyn, Bliss Cafe is a vegetarian and vegan cafe offering breakfast, lunch and dinner. We went for brunch and I had the Vegan french toast covered in tasty strawberries and bananas and my boyfriend went for the more masculine choice of breakfast burrito which he thoroughly enjoyed.  Would have loved to have gone back for lunch and tried the highly acclaimed Bliss Bowl.  Next time!!

Bunna Cafe

We had never tried Ethiopian cuisine before so when we saw that Bunna Cafe was 100% vegan, we jumped at the chance for a visit.  We were not disappointed!  We wanted to try it all, so that we did.  We started with the Lentil Sambusa appetiser and then went for the Ethiopian Feast for 2 which included 9 small dishes to share with lots of gorgeous bread. Be prepared to get messy as obviously you have to eat with your hands. My faves included the portobello mushrooms sautéed with herbs and onion and the steamed kale.

Wild Ginger

Thai food is my absolute favourite so seeing that Wild Ginger was also another fully vegan restaurant, I couldn’t wait to visit.  The menu was extensive but I was in the mood for something simple so I ordered the Organic Tofu with Mixed Vegetables and Steamed Vegetable Dumplings.  Both were lovely and just the uncomplicated fare I was after. My bf also went for the Barbecue Vegan Ribs which was another hit.

Various locations, we went to: 112 Smith St, Brooklyn, NY 11201

Dun-Well Donuts

And now for something sweet. We visited the very famous (well in the vegan world) Dun-well Donuts on Montrose Avenue in Brooklyn.  I had heard that they offered a trillion different varieties of vegan donuts so was a little disappointed to see only about 8 different flavours but then again it was towards the end of the day. Saying that, I probably would have chosen the Peanut Butter and Jelly anyway! The Bloke went for Raspberry.  Extra shout out to the delicious coffee too.

So that’s it.  We saw, we ate, we conquered.  New York is definitely the best city I’ve visited for vegans (and that even includes the wonderful San Francisco).  Let me know your recommendations for your discoveries in NY as we are sure to be returning soon.

Thanks for reading.
