What a month! I am not sure what possessed me to think that doing Vegan Mofo while travelling in the USA for the whole month was a good idea. On the plus side, I had plenty of restaurants to write up, because I was eating out two or three times a day. But I hadn’t counted on the pressure of writing up almost every day, as well as the problems of flaky wifi that made loading photos a complete pest. Funnily, until I got to Chicago, my best wifi was on an Amtrak train. In other places I had to stand in a particular corner of the room to get a signal.
I managed 19 posts for the month, which I think technically makes me a Vegan Mofo fail, but I cannot imagine doing any more!
Wrapping it all up, there was some great food, a few surprises and very few disappointments.
So here are my favourite food “Oscars” for the trip.
Most unexpected pleasure
Who would have thought sushi could be so sensational?
Best fine dining experience
Great food, great service and a bargain at the price.
Best Comfort Food
Meatloaf, potatoes and gravy…yum.
Best Chain Restaurant
Burgers and sandwiches that hit the spot.
Best Diner/Sandwich Bar
Love at first bite. Breakfast done perfectly.
A draw, but completely different. Dimo’s has a thicker crust and more variety, but Two Boots does an impeccable thin crust vegan slice.
And finally, a big thanks to the non vegan places that gave it a go in non-vegan territory in Western Pennsylvania
Hometown Diner and The Italian Oven in Connellsville, PA, Cafe Connections in Ligonier, PA, and the Connellsville Bed and Breakfast. They fed us well, against the odds.
So that’s me signing off from Vegan Mofo 2014. I’m taking a few days off from blogging, phew!
I’m looking forward to cooking again after a month of eating out.
