A vegan in Istanbul

Explored some of the – relatively – healthy food options in Istanbul at Kadikoy (Asian side) and was recommended to check out vegetarian Komsu Cafe with contribution (yes you may help out in the kitchen!) and donation system (though recommended amount mentioned on their menu) xO

Komsu Cafe has a fab (but quite dull, for me at least) rustic feel to it. Designed for meeting people, and they even donate clothes xD Enjoyed their vegan kofta 🙂

Stumbled upon the first vegan cafe restaurant called Mahatma Cafe on a hill top run by friendly – and revolutionary! – Turkish folk with some Yoga influence. They claim to berely make a profit due the high quality ingredients (such as virgin olive oil) and high taxes :/ It has a real chill, laid back, natural (all outdoors even, but with partial shelter) n chill vibe xD

Had Mahatma Cafe’s vegan Menemen (similar to Middle Eastern Shakshooka), a traditional Turkish dish which includes eggs (in this case tahina), tomato, green peppers, and spices such as ground black pepper, ground red pepper, salt and oregano. Also had raw lentil kofta there x)

Freedom Pizza – your freedom to three: yummy, vegan, and gluten free!

Recently (since Dec. 2016) Freedom Pizza launched their gluten free AND vegan crust (previously gluten free had dairy)! It has absolutely no dairy and is mainly made up of potato chickpea rice & tapioca flour, and uses flax seed instead of egg, and as usual comes with local grown organic toppings from Ripe Farms.

Don’t believe me? Check out https://freedompizza.ae/en/nutrition_rows under Allergens menu for proof 🙂

MoWrOw’s News and Funz BLARG!!!: 2012 in review

This is pretty neat, custom site stats in the shape of a wondeful animated brochure; thanX WordPress!!!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The new Boeing 787 Dreamliner can carry about 250 passengers. This blog was viewed about 1,500 times in 2012. If it were a Dreamliner, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.

Click here to see the complete report.

The best Burj Khalifa 2013 fireworks I can find sow far, plz comment if you have better footagez.

JibJab Year in Review 2012: The End is Here

I was at JBR beach, and there were some shellingz 8|

OK OK it was fireworks, but they were real close, only around 30 meters from me :O Sow close that I felt like I had to retreat to avoid possible injury 😛 My cell was low on battery and mom called at the same time of filming sow this is all I got haHah.

Anyway I was not too far from Atlantis’ 2013 fireworks and some other place’s too. Sow had 3 firework shows in 1 row haHah XD

Other than that, I walked around JBR for 3 hours, and witnessed some of the celebrations.

Hilton hotel had half the beach blocked for some live concert :/

Meydan Beach’s Cafe Del Mar had some fire joggling, along with the some House music. THey said they sold out all seats, with 1,800 tickets sold a day before the event, and were closing off sales at noon the same day, standing tickets.

Habtoor Grand and Royal Meridien weren’t sow annoying; they were playing some oldies and swinging 60’s, with a huge screen with donowot on it.

Live Cooking Demos

Attended the first live & real cooking demonstration in my life, this time at Taste of Dubai in DMC, on March 16th 2012.

First Live Cooking Demos - Taste of Dubai

Especially liked the demo by Jason Vale (The JuiceMaster), who makes juiced veggies an essential part of his life, and by doing so, claimed to have lost the title “fat flaky boy” cause the juice not only made him loose loads of weight, but rid of his skin allergy. Juiced veggies (without any sweetners) taste sow good, even kids loved it 8D

There were loads of delish samples from fresh veggie juice, energy / relaxation drinks, bread dips (pestos, oils), flavored nuts, flavored grape juice, chips (like falafel chips!), oat cookies, cheese (e.g. flavored Lavachkiri’s), instant meals, etc.

The paid food & beverage was sow darn expensive, at 3-4 times the regular price due to the small portions 😯 One interesting dish was the Broccoli Pot, which is a basically broccoli pudding (not too sweet or creamy) 8]

The only real bummer was the cooking class queues. Those were around 30 to 45 minutes long, and one had to stand in them for the entire duration without reserving space for anyone. What happened for me was I was waiting in queue with a friend for around 20 minutes until a second friend arrived. I had to escort him in from the entrance so when I came back I went back into the queue where my first friend was standing.

When the group behind me noticed our size increase, they complained to the staff. Soon after the staff refused to have another person added to the group, I left the queue just to realize that my first friend actually left on an emergency call without telling me, and we lost the whole spot anyway 8/
