    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
    Coconut? Shy? There's a joke in there somewhere!

    The viva thing is at 1930, plenty of time to pop into either Teohs in St Pauls, or The One Stop Thali in Montpelier. Both places open at 1800.

    i will probably come on the 4th, but more just to meet up with everyone , i'm not really interested in the lecture

    edit: i think it is my college trip on the 5th, and if i am correct with this, that means i have to get up at 6 on thursday, in which case i probably won't go on wed (it is on a wednesday, right?)

    In Bristol, looking for plants and shrubs and stuff, feeling peckish, then pop along to the Riverside Garden Centre and grab something to eat in the veggie cafe.

    Today I had a big plate full of spicy African curry (with as many different types of veggies as I can think of) and rice for just £5.50. Well worth a visit.

    Had eats this evening at Wagamama , Queens road, Clifton, Bristol.

    I had yasai itameru, or stir-fried pak choi, tofu, red onion, beansprouts, sweet potato and coriander, served with rice noodles in a spicy coconut soup. And a carrot, cucumber, tomato, orange and apple juice.

    The place is in a very good location, and looks more expensive than it is. If you ask, they have a wee seperate menu that shows whats vegan.

    Aye, it is a good place, we have one in Guildford, with a special menu with the vegan dishes marked, and what ones can be made vegan. Pretty good, and very enjoyable food as i recall.

    I popped over to Bath again today, and found myself in Demuths again.

    I had a mexican chilli with rice (ok it sounded more impressive on the menu) which was really nice, followed by chocolate fudge cake with soya ice cream. I've heard all good things about this chocolate fudge cake (thanks snaffler) and boy did it live up to them. Apparently they cut too big a slice, so as you can imagine it was just hell eating even more rich and sticky chocolate fudge cake than you had expected, but I struggled through. It looked really impressive (whilst it lasted) when the waitress brought it to the table, turning many heads.

    I shared the meal with an organic cool blonde, thats a vegan lager by the way.

    Demuths is well worth dipping into when in Bath.

    If anyone visits one of the places already in the guide , or somewhere that isn't that should be, post a little bit about it, and you never know, it may well appear in the 2006 Vegan Guide to Bristol.

    Gertvegan - would you consider covering as far as Bradford on Avon - there are some good vegan-friendly places there and it's only a cycle ride away from Bristol?

    Sophie

    I'm the minor part of the Local Veggie Web team:

    www.lvw.makessense.co.uk - take a look if you want a free, easy to develop website like Vegan Bristol's for your veggie group. This is what Vegan Bristol uses, among many other groups.

    Never say never but its probably a bit too far from Bristol, maybe theres a need for a lvw site to Somerset and Wiltshire. Thats another thread though.

    Al Medina Cafe.

    Neighbour to the Big Banana juice bar, opposite The Real Olice Co, and a whisper away from Royce Rolls, Al Medina Cafe is yet another St Nicks market vegan friendly caterer. Serving up half a dozen or more Moroccan vegan dishes that are cheap as chips, swiftly as, and with a smile.

    Wheather it be casserole of lentils with tomato and coriander sauce, couscous and mixed veg salad, moorish chickpeas, or baysara for a couple of pounds, you'll be laughing. And takeaway to.

    They'll also be happy to offer a catering service, with authentic Moroccan food for parties, buffets, and lunches etc.

    St Nicks market is where it's at.

    Finally got around to trying out Eastern Experience on the reccomendation of Mr Snaffler.

    We had Mushroom and vegetable Lagan, vegetable jalfrazy, a couple of somosas, papadoms and chutneys and pickles (of course), and a few roti. Oh and a few cobra beers.

    The staff are really friendly, the menu is clear to see whats vegan or ain't (green dot containing dairy), not bad prices, and its very local to. I can really see myself going there again.

    The Eastern Eye in Bath is run by the same people. The menu for both can be checked out here.

    I have read through this and think the idea as a whole is pretty good but after looking at some of terms and conditions relating to hours and pay I do think with current housing prices including those in the renting market this would be a tough wage to manage on.

    Don't get me wrong I am not knocking the idea I think it's great but I know lots of people in Bristol and I have two large sections of my own family living in Bristol.
    They say they do need a certain amount to get by on, which exceeds the yearly of essentials wages, and I know for a fact the members of my I am talking about are far from what I would call excessive in their living, in fact they are very resouceful and into a lot of do it yourself stuff in many ways.

    Any one here work for them ? I am no doubt that it is a great place to work.

    You have soooo gotta go to Plantation.

    Its a Caribbean restaurant only a few minutes on the bus from the centre of town, run by a lovely lady, Beverley Forbes. Though not a veggie place, Beverley is aware and interested in cooking vegan food, having regular customers in the Rastafarian Society of Bristol.

    All but two of the veggie items are vegan, she'll even cook something not on the menu (within reason) if you ask.

    We had the Callaloo Fritters, Aloo (Potato) Balls, Jerk Tofu with Stir Fried Vegetables, Curried Chana (Chick Peas) and Callaloo, Rice 'n' Peas x 2, and some delightful Johnny Cakes (Fried Dumplings).

    Great place, top owner and chef, brill music, your loss if your don't go here when in town.

    Theres a new soya shake place in town.

    Shakeking only opened two weeks ago in Broadmead, just along from Primark. They have loads of weird and wonderful flavours to try, mentioning the term vegan on the menu: stating that many of their shakes are vegan (however, it isn't clear at present if some of the flavours are truly vegan - but they did say they were contacting manufacturers of some of the flavourings used, to clarify).

    Use it or loose it.

    As part of the Organic Food Festival 2005, 10 musicians and a chef from the Vienna Vegetable Orchestra will play an amazing selection of their own music exclusively from vegetable-based instruments, although where necessary, additional kitchen utensils such as knives or mixers are employed.

    Whether its traditional African, classical concert, or experimental electronic music (they do a mean kraftwerk apparently), theres something for you's.

    Check out www.gemueseorchester.org and have a listen.

    They are at The Victoria Rooms on Saturday 3rd September, at 1930. Tickets can be booked in advance by calling the Bristol ticket shop - 0117929008.
