Luxurious vegetarian paradise in Mumbai, India

There is no doubt that India is one of the top destinations for vegetarians. With nearly 30% of the population being strict vegetarian and a big part of the others having varying degrees of meat restrictions vegetarian meals usually makes up more than half of the menu in most restaurants. With so many different dietary requirements, many restaurants are also accustomed to modifications, which is good news for all vegans.

One of the latest additions to VegTrip, The Trident Bandra Kurla is a luxurious five star hotel in Mumbai. Featuring three different restaurants (Indian, Italian and mixed) all having large vegetarian selections and being extremely flexible with special dietary requirements (vegan, gluten...) this hotel guarantees a warm welcome to India.

Finding vegan shoes

Finding good quality vegan shoes is not always easy. We therefore set out to visit the shop Il Gatto con gli Stivali (literally "Puss in boots") in Rome to try out a few different brands.

These are not your average fake leather shoes but are made with comfort and quality in mind. They are made out of high quality, breathable materials. Having tried out several pairs while walking the streets of Rome we can confirm that this is really the case.

The shoes we tried out are mainly manufactured by four different companies, di Romeo in Italy, Vegetarian Shoes in the UK, Novacas in the US and finally Cri de Coeur. We also tried ordering a few shoes directly from di Romeo and this worked out great.


di Romeo is an Italian brand which is also available online


Vegan women shoes, vegan purse and vegan wallet


More vegan shoes

To sum up, most of the shoes that we tried were very comfortable and so far seem to be of high quality. If you look around, especially in bigger cities it's relatively easy to find shops selling vegan shoes and if you happen to live very far from one, many of the brands have online shops shipping worldwide.

Vegan Vacation in Rome, Italy

We visited Rome in late February for a welcoming spring break away from the winter storms and to see what the Italian capital had to offer in terms of vegan food, accommodations and shopping (and Roman ruins).

The Colosseum

HappyCow already suggested that there is a fair number of vegetarian restaurants many of which also offer vegan options. We unfortunately did not have time to try all of them but will have to save some for our next visit.

On our first night we decided to start with an Ayurvedic restaurant called Bibliothe, it was close by had vegan options and most importantly, was open on Mondays which seems to be a day many vegetarian restaurant owners considers their day off. We found out that the name of the restaurant comes from the fact that it is housed in an old library and they actually offer books both to borrow and to buy. All this promised a very cozy setting.

We went for their 25 euro menu, which was completely vegan and, in case you are hungry, is highly recommended.


The next day we went to a fantastic restaurant that quickly became our favorite, Ops! Cucina Mediterranea

Ops! Cucina Mediterranea

This restaurant is open both for lunch and dinner and is listed as being 80% vegan on HappyCow. However, each time we went there all the food was vegan. The restaurant features a large vegan buffet with an impressive selection of different dishes – you put as much as you want on your plate and pay for the weight. They also offers various freshly pressed juices – a welcome energy boost after walking the streets of Rome! We ended up coming back here several times.



We also went to a few non-vegan restaurants and found that generally it was easy to find vegan options on the menus. Highly recommended is the Pizza Marinara which in its original form is always vegan.


There are several purely vegetarian or vegan hotels available in Italy and at least two that we know of in Rome, for example The Beehive Hotel which we’re planning to visit next time.
