Vegan Adventures in Bundaberg, Queensland
Written by Leigh-Chantelle   
Created Tuesday, 16 December 2014

I recently went for a road trip adventure to visit my friend Jeremy in Bundaberg. He's been working there most of this year at the Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery. I was looking forward to hanging out with Jeremy, checking out the vegan options, and seeing the turtles lay eggs.

After one stop at Tiaro, and my almost 4.5 hour drive on Sunday from Brisbane to the centre of Bundaberg, Jeremy and I first headed to the recently opened (the day before!) Eden at Boylands. Located in a nursery, out the back right in with the plants, the owners' Mum started us off with a plate of dessert samples. Best way to start a lunch really.

Enjoy the Silly Season & Please Have a Vegan Christmas
Written by Leigh-Chantelle   
Created Monday, 15 December 2014

It's that time of year again. I've noticed various stores playing painful Christmas carols since November, people are putting in their present requests and everyone is talking about what they'll be doing. As all vegans know, it's an incredibly heart-wrenching time of year. People carry on and on about peace, love, compassion and good will, all the while expecting others to work through the holiday season, buying stuff they/others don't really need, buying puppies and kittens, plus all that gorging on our animal friends' flesh and secretions. Urgh...

New Veg Restaurant: VegeRama at West End
Written by Leigh-Chantelle   
Created Thursday, 11 December 2014

There's a new VegeRama vegetarian restaurant recently opened in West End - diagonally opposite the Gun Shop Cafe and Roundabout Cafe. I recently went to the opening of the newest addition to the VegeRama brand a few weeks back - just before the big storms in Brisbane. It seems I'm frequenting this place a bit, as I also took my sister there a few days later, will be there for a friend's birthday on the weekend, and want to share the photos from my dinner there from last week.

It's great to have somewhere (finally) in Brisbane that I would class as a date-night restaurant. I know that my friends who drink alcohol have always wanted a place they can have vegan food with their vegan wine or beer. It's also really great to see the contrast between this new mainstream-friendly restaurant - especially when you compare the decor and quality of food to other vegan places in the area.
