Exploring Prague's Vegetarian restaurants.

Before I went to Prague I checked out if there was any vegetarian restaurants. I found several of them.
I only made it to 2 while there though. We wasted one night searching for one place. The roads over there go in all directions and maps are hard to read.

The first one we went to was a place called Maitrea. It was on a side street but right off the old town square, the busiest area.
We were brought downstairs where the main part of the restaurant was. It was really relaxing and cozy.
The menu was sooo delish. So many things to choose from. But of course I had zeroooo appetite that night.
I went with the Quesadilla with tomatoes, fresh spinach, olives and feta cheese, guacamole, tomato salsa and sour cream.

And my Mom got Red bean chili baked with cheddar in a flour tortilla, rice, tomato salsa, sour cream and fresh coriander

we got a salad to share as well. We didn't need it in the end because our dinners were huge and so was the salad.
Chief salad - Green leafy salad with pan-fried baked potatoes and red onions, spring vegetables, roasted garlic, Madeland cheese, croutons and yoghurt dressing

Another place we ate was 'Country Living' a vegan buffet style restaurant and health food store. I wasn't as into this one.

We ate in the court yard
I ate this. I can't even remember what it was. Some tofu stuff and some tempeh stuff. The tempeh was pretty shitty and I wasn't into it.
And some salad!

I bought some vegan raw chocolate in the shop. It tasted alright, I still ate the whole bar on a boat ride after!

I have become so lazy when it comes to blogging. I need to be a good mood to do this. I could write loads more but EFFORT.
For the other times we ate, it was pizza and pasta and lots of ice cream.
There was a little market we came across and they sold loads of punnets of fruit. It all looked so nice!

Select Stores Health Food Store- Dalkey

I am way to lazy right now to write long stuff.
Select Stores is a health food store in Dalkey. They also serve food and smoothies! They do mostly vegi food. They do falafels, sandwiches, salads, soups and have a lot of baked stuff.

Window seat with a view!


Blackberry picking/Apple and Blackberry crumble pie

All the blackberries have nearly ripened and there is plenty growing in my area. You find them growing everywhere.
Mulins Hill, where I walk the dogs a fair bit had loads growing. I was always walking by them on walks so decided to go up and pick some!
So Jesse and I went up and went Blackberry picking, as you do!
I love Mulins so much. When I'm up there I feel as if I am somewhere no where near home. They're are great views from it too.

I decided to make a Apple and Blackberry crumble pie. I made shortcrust pastry myself. I had never done it before and it turned out real well.
I also made crumble and my god it was my favorite bit. It had porridge oats in it so it was really crunchy! Also and lots of cinnamon! Yum yum yum. Will be making again.
I thinly slices cooking apples and layered them up with sugar and blackberries in between the layers.
