I feel like a kinda soya milky bar kid, but with Vegan guides to Bristol. I have 140 of the beauties to dish out to several places on my side of town.

The vegan guides are on me. :D

I dipped into Bath again today and whilst there I had a vegan breakfast and a spicey tomato juice in Demuths (http://www.demuths.co.uk/).

It was quite quiet, though it was mid morning. This place is a must if you find yourself in Bath. :)

Oh and also whilst Bathing (is that what its called when in Bath ?), I popped into the Porter Cellar Bar (http://www.theporter.co.uk/porter/index.ihtml) and had a cashew nut curry with rice, and a couple of becks.

Another place to visit when in Bath for a chilled out drink or bite to eat. (See page 30 of the Vegan Guide to Bristol). ;)

I'm sure I read that all the wines are veggie, some vegan, but I'm not sure about the other drinks Mr snaffler, sorry. Nice place the Porter.

I tried out a new Indian place today, Krisnas' Inn, on the triangle (you know, the triangle). Its on page 13 of the guide. ;)

A chickpea curry (ok so it wasn't called chickpea curry on the menu) with lemon rice, and 3 garlic parathas, with a lemon tea was had.

The eyes were bigger than the tummy as not all the parathas disappeared.

A very friendly place, good prices, top service, worth a visit, and a return. :)

A big thanks for this gert again I must check out some of these places when I am over Brizzle next....

Although not featured in the Brizzle vegan guide the Eastern Eye do some nice vegan tucker as well, only a limited amount but enough for a good meal and its good quality.

You know you are a winner with the eastern eye as they are very strict on dietry needs and cross contamination. They colour code the entire menu regarding food needs or not needs.

This is the web site http://www.easterneye.co.uk/ just go to the veggie menu then look at the meals with NO green dots this means no Dairy in this meal.

This is the web site for the Bath venue this is very old and posh nice though also they have a place at the Vue Longwell Green, Bristol this is more modern and plush still very nice.

So if you go to Bristol you get to do Jelfrazzi and a Movie all in the same area...but remember no burping spices in the cinema seats it gets warm and soon pen and inks.

If you want the best juices in town, head down to the Big Banana Juice Bar, The Glass Arcade, St Nicholas Market.

Try the Iron Booster (with beetroot, watercress, apple and carrot), or Very Veg (with carrot, cucumber, celery and parsley), both believed to work wonders for your health, and your taste buds.

Todays special was apple, strawberry, and fennel. :)

Last night it was Malaysian tofu curry at Teohs in Bedminster, Bristol.

Delicious pieces of tofu cooked in a lovely Malaysian curry sauce with fragrant desiccated coconut and juicy pineapple pieces, served on a bed of rice. All for 5.50, washed down with a beer.

You'd never know that I had the menu in front of me would you. How hungry do you feel now. :p

last time i went to teohs i asked for the vegan version of whatever meal- and i even explained to the waitress that by vegan i meant no meat, dairy, or eggs, or anything else animal related- just to make sure.. and she came back with what appeared to be egg noodles.. i asked her, and yes- they were.. she said that what she meants when she said that there were noeggs etc was that there were no chopped up pieces of egg or whatever, and took back the food reluctantly and in not a very good mood because i guess i got her into trouble.. silly lady..

Its on Wednesday May 4th, 1930 - 2130, at Broadmead Baptist Church (above Tesco Metro).

I've been trying to get in touch with local groups but with no luck. I noticed that there are a lot of vegans in bristol and I just wondered if anyone would want to meet up.

I might be interested. I'm very shy though, so don't be offended if I spend a lot of time in the corner looking awkward :D
