(I'll edit the thread title so anyone interested will notice it)

I'm off to try and sleep before getting up at 3am tomorrow and probably won't be online before Thursday so will say now that I'm awful at managing to find people I've never met before- but then maybe everyone is. So I'll be the lost looking, short, Scottish one with bleached blonde hair. Hopefully see some of you there (8 on Thursday) in spite of my crap organisation skills :p

I think I might be too excited to sleep!

Hope you'll be able to log on before tomorrow evening blinki...

Good job my nice couch surfing host let me borrow his laptop for a minute. Not doing well at this :lol: I also wish I knew about Scandinavians and their thing for Easter. Easter is such a non-event for us but I think by the time I get to OIso there's going to be no locals, just a ghost town with the occasional tourist.

I could do waffles tomorrow but it says on their website 'Måndag - Fredag 10:00-19:00' which unless I'm missing a special section on waffle related opening times means it's no good either

No it's definitely open until 22 tomorrow, it's a catering group called Veganfoods who are using the venue twice a week.
If you have time before you leave, they also do an Easter menue on Friday!

Please don't forget to take pictures & share them with us - not just of your meet-up but also of Stockholm & your travels generally! :)

See you there, I'll probably come around 7.30 but I'll look out for you! Hoffmeister are you coming?

I didn't, especially after Linnea told me you posted that to remind me.

I took other pictures but obviously these are the most interesting :lol:

Image

Hermitage, buffet so I skipped breakfast to eat as much as I could. I went small on the third plate so I had space for cake but turned out the only vegan cake was pretty much just jam on pastry. Nothing amazing but nothing wrong with it either. Wish I'd tried the creamy noodles earlier though cause they were by far the best. Felt like I was getting looks off the staff by the time I went for a third plate

Image
Image
The waffles, very good and first time I'd had waffles in years.

Image
Cake at Hermans. Very good but also very sweet so it was rather sickly towards the end. I'd just been up the sky view (ski lift to the roof of the hockey stadium) and remembered half way up that I'm scared of heights so it was a very nauseous afternoon

Image
Thai curry at Lao Wai, a vegan Chinese. I went hoping to find Chinese food that I like so bit disappointed that the lunch dish was Thai.

Then Oslo, where the food was much less exciting.

Image
I don't think this place is on happy cow and I found it by chance. It's right next to the city hall and called either the Heart of Fragrance or the Fragrance of the Heart, I forget which. It's a vegetarian place where they have few vegan cakes and a lunch. I think the cake was raw and the pastry was so bland it's existence was pointless but the apply and berries was nice. The lunch sounded awesome- tofu paneer in a cashew and green tea curry- but I'd already made my packed lunch and was heading to another part of the city.

Image
I popped into a health food/vegany type shop, Rotter, to see if they had anything I'd never had before. It was a great shop, big a lots of selection, though nothing I'd never seen before apart from these cookies which I assume are American based on the weight being in oz first. I wasn't expecting much from a protein cookie but it tasted like a nice cookie and not like protein powder at all. Forgot to take a photo before I ate it

Image
And my beer before I left. Turns out buying beer from a shop isn't allowed on Sundays in Oslo (or Easter Monday) and it was awful hard work finding a bar that didn't look a bit crap. It cost about £10 so I felt it had to be photographed.


That sort of misrepresents my eating while away but tinned beans in Stockholm are so so so much nicer than our tinned beans. Also their UHT alpro is as nice as the non-UHT stuff but it doesn't have the magic non-curdling in coffee thing going on.
