Couch

Couch

Couch is an English cosy (and resonnable for the price) restaurant.

I had a voucher for Couch, and I was worried there was not going to  have vegan options, but on the Menu that day there was this Courgette vegan sandwich ! With (giant) potato wedges.

Fortunately, they also do vegan hot chocolate if you ask to put soy milk instead of regular milk (it’s not written on the menu). But instead of that, I ordered this Mango Smoothie and it was heavenly good.

So, stay calm, there’s vegan options in Couch! Not the best place for Vegan meals but still, worth to go there at least once.

Thanks you for reading this article, don’t hesitate to read the rest of my blog ~

Homemade Blueberry Banana and Pecan Pancakes


My omni (non-vegan) friend told me ‘my cousin cooked me this amazing vegan pancakes, and it has been hanting me for a week, so when you come we have to make those pancakes’. 

I was so happy, knowing that he’s never eating any vegan food and now he’s getting interested about it. And it was actually his first time baking. 

Here’s the link to the recipe, as it’s actually from a cookbook.


We struggled during the night, because he had no vegan butter or coconut oil, so we had to drive to buy some in the middle of the baking time, however it seemed like it’s wasn’t a big deal as they turned out to be super good. Look at those!

Hope it will inspire you. Let me know if you tried the recipe and how did you find it.

See you next time!

Homemade Japanese dinner

Hi everyone.

The other day, we decided to have this healthy and delicious japanese meal for dinner.


We used a rice cooker (Taiwanese style). Put the rice and the veggies as well in it, separately, including Brocolis, Shirtaké Mushrooms and Fried Beansprouts. Well, you can or cannot fry the Beansprouts, but we decided to do it for the taste. 

In the rice cooker, when we put the vegetables, we also added some Very Lazy Garlic and Soy sauce on the top, as well as Olive oil. Then, we let the rice and the veggies cooked for 20 minutes.

Then we served it all, hot, and added black sesame seeds. 

Healthy, tasty, easy, quick, and cheap! And, amazing dinner.

And then, time for some Japanese tea! 

Careful, it’s a spicy tea! But heathly and tasty, so I definitely recommend it.

Enjoy your meal.

The Peacock, Vegan Pub

Last week I went to Nottingham, and in order to make discover vegan food to a friend -as I’ve been told it was really good- I went to this vegan pub. And indeed it was! It used to be a normal pub (non-vegan)  but it has really recently turned into a full vegan pub. How amazing is that?

The second picture is the meal that I ordered, a Vegan Lasagna with Garlic Bread and a Salad. It was wonderful! So good.

Nottingham is such a good city for Vegan Restaurants… I recommend this pub to any tourist or any locals that haven’t eating there yet.

There’s a lot of choice, plus, it’s cheap!

Thanks for reading my blog. Don’t hesitate to check out the other article!

Vegan Pizza

Yesterday, I went to Zizzi Restaurant to eat lunch with some friends.

I wanted to share this with you, ’cause not everybody does know that in addition of their regular Menu, Zizzi has actually a special Vegan menu ! There’s the choice between two kinds of pasta, three kinds of pizza with actual Vegan cheese, many starters, salads and even some desserts.

I decided to order a Vegan Margarita with vegan cheese, here’s the picture.

It’s massive, not that caloric compared to the other ones and delicious! I recommend it. If you’re a local in U.K. or a just a tourist, there’s Zizzi Restaurants almost in every big city. The first time I went to one of the chain restaurant’s was in Stratford-Upon-Avon, which is still a small city compared to Sheffield.

See you guys!

Vegan restaurants, Sheffield

Interval Café

It’s part of the University of Sheffield but they don’t ask you for you student card so you can go there.

Here’s the vegan cheesy pizza. I recommand it!!

Then there’s the wedges that are only 2£, and you can ask vegan cheese with it!

Then the last one is a tea with a vegan cupcake (black forest taste).

Makes no bones


Vegan fish and chips. If you liked the taste of Fish and Chips, they do really taste like the real ones.

Then the side dish is fried cheese. Really good!

Tamper Coffee


Brunch – Avocado on toast with seeds and rocket. Smashing. So good. This place is also really cosy!

Luna Rossa


Luna Rossa. There’s an amazing choice of Pizza as you can see on the first picture. I was lucky, I could tried them all -yeah all were ordered- at the Vegan Meet Up of October. They’re all interesting and good. Actually, the vegan cheese is amazing, you confuse it with the real one. 

Then there’s the dessert, there’s the choice between a tiramisu, a oreo cake and carrot cake. 
Thansk for following, I hope this article helped you. If you want any other info about what I’ve posted, just drop a comment!

Daily Routine, Being Vegan in Sheffield part 3

Hi guys! I wanted to share my daily routine with you, with which food I’m eating in Sheffiled Uni and the one I’m cooking in my home. I’ve already shared about my breakfast and some food I’m used to eat in here, but let’s focus on what I choose to eat depending on the situation.

For instance, when I have time, I try to cook. Cooking brings some hapiness and when you succeed, you feel like you accomplished something great. Haha anyway that’s how I feel. So here’s a meal I love to cook but which takes time, Gyōza/Dumplings. It’s these chinese/japanese ravioli full of Veggies.

It’s really delicious. When you try to find some in an Asian supermarket it’s always out of price so I suggest you to try to make it at home. There’s differents recipes, just type vegan gyoza and you would find one of them. I could also share mine with you, if you’re interested. Leave a comment if you are.

There’s some days where I don’t have time to go home and cook, having only one hour break for lunch between two lectures, so I go to Our Shop, The University’s store and grap one of the Vegan sandwiches. Yes there’s several vegan options! Hapiness!

On the picture I also grabbed a banana and strawberry smoothie from the University’s Café, and a chocolate (but natural? Haha) fruit bar. This bar is amazingly good and it’s being sell so quickly that I only find it once every five time I go the shop.

When I’m lazy to cook and when I feel like a light meal would be enough, I’m making some salad with whichever veggies I have.

This one was with tomatoes, mushrooms, red onions, green olives, lettuce, red pepper and sesames seeds. I added some Soy sauce and optionally sometimes I add some Olive oil for more taste. It’s simple and tasty, that’s one of my most regular meal. I do change the dressing depending on my mood. It can be soy sauce, or yeast flakes, and lately I’ve been using the Henderson’s Relish which is a speciality of Sheffield.

That’s it for this article, I’m gonna do another part of Being Vegan in Sheffield as I’m staying for a year here, I have a lot to talk about. Thanks for reading, don’t hesitate to leave a comment, I would be really happy if you do. 

Cheers!
