Well I travelled along with my Vegetarian meetup group. We had been here in the past. I enjoyed my time. Food was exquisite. heheehe. The waiter knew his stuff and his dishes dietary. I was most impressed. He knew what was vegan and wasn't. Although the majority of the dishes on offer is Vegan, some are vegetarian. So I just wanted to make sure. Considering the place was bouncing, he was speculator. Ever since Delhi O' Delhi(Review here), closed down(RIP), I have been naming Umi Falafel as my FAV vegan/vegetarian restaurant. Umi is Arabic for "Mother". Following is what I had The Lebanese Falafel Batata Hara/Wedges Lentil Soup Basbousa The Lentil Soup, mmmmmmmm was heaven. Totally enjoyed it. Creamey(VEGAN) creamey soup. I had asked the waiter what was the soup of the day and he reploied Brocoli Soup of which was I wasn't the best of. SO I chose a nicer soup of which I was glad. hahahah The Lebanese Falafel was filled in a wrap style or as they call it a Falafel. Filled with styuffiny type, Tomato, Cucumber, pickles, parsely and tahini sauce. It was scrumptious. IT would be suitable as a lunch. It was heaven. mmmmm. I asked for a side order of Wedges or in Arabic BAtata Hara. They were a bit dry, spicyness was "Just Right". Not too hot, and not too bland(opposite of spicy), it was JUST RIGHT. I asked for a dessert menu. I quickly looked and chose Basbousa

I headed with my family to the restaurant in the Regency Hotel, here in Drumcondra. Its situated in a nice area. I never knew the name of the restaurant. Although my Dad paid, We were treated to a 3 course for 18.95 per person. It ain't too bad considering. I had a LOVELY Salad. That was the best of the lot. It consisted of, pasta, couscous, coleslaw, potato salad. It was absolutely scrumptious. Then I had Penne Pasta with Tossed Vegetables. I wasn't the best of it to be honest. There was hardly any pasta. More Vegetable. Very crunchy. Then I had the last course: Dessert. Again labels was a failure here. I got two lovely desserts. And a fruit cocktail as I would call it. heheheh. The chocolate aspect of the dessert, was very strong as in Dark Chocolate. heeheh.

Milano (Baggot Street)
1 - 2 Haddington Road, Dublin 4, City Centre South, Dublin

I popped along with a group of Vegetarians and some Vegan friends. Although the food was questionably delicious, the staff thou was highly questionable. I was with a group of about 20 or so if even that. Clearly they couldn't handle the amount. Yet the group in Grand Canal Dock after a theatre production, last time, the staff there were very much able to handle the crowds. SO getting back to Baggot St., I first started off with Bruschetta Originale "Milano". I was wanting a vegan version of this. The person opposite me who is a vegan, was helping. I was enquiring with her a few times. I asked the waiter if he knows its vegan, he didn't know the meaning of the word. The bruschetta was lovely. No question. Next was the main which was Veneizan. Now this is a pizza. I assumed it was vegetarian. I only picked it because .30c was being donated to a good cause in Honduras or somewhere. The pizza itself was alrite. The crust was quite hard. Next was onto the the dessert, which was Leggera Sorbet. This was lovely. heheheeh. Out of the whole three, I deliciously enjoyed the Bruschetta. I then enjoyed a delicious Mint Green Tea, that my mate on my previous outing enjoyed. It was heaven. mmmmm

Milano (Grand Canal Harbour)
Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Grand Canal Dock, Dublin

My friend and I went here after a performance. The staff were a pleasure to be served by. The names on the menu were very much Italian after all its an Italian chain. heheeh. I first started off with a dish with tomatoes in a circular shape with Pesto on it and a Buffalo or Bula in Italian Cheese. Oh it was heaven. Then it was time for the main course. This by far was delicious especially the Garlic Bread. I was offered this with a Al Forne. Again I can't quite recall the names of the dishes. Then afterwards, for dessert I had a Tiramasu and a scrumtpious Super Fruit Green Tea. Awww it was heaven.

The Larder Restaurant
8 Parliament Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

I traveled along to the restaurant with a group on the momentous Occasion, Pride 2015. I was given a menu, with a main course and the starters were very small writing, ie NOT important. hahaah. I looked at a Veggie Breakfast. I wasn't impressed with its ingredients. So I said I'd leave it. I asked the waitress, which she was very kind, if I could order TWO Starters to make it a main. ahahah. So I enquired a Soup which is a Leak and Lentil PANCHETTO, something like that. Now the waitress explained that's ham. I've personally NEVER heard of a ham let alone a meat dish in a soup, other than the simple Chicken etc., . So I had to make do with Rocket Salad AND Dip Bread. Now both were lovely, except, the Olives' I ain't sure "are there suppose to be STONES" in either olives, the red and Green????? So to sum up, Service EXCELLENT, Food CRAP.

Foam Cafe
24 Strand Street Great, Italian Quarter, Dublin

I popped around to the Foam with my Mom, I was SO overwhelmed with all the CAMPNESS obviously in the positive. We were greeted with such lovely warm welcome. We were offered the Couch or the Table. As we were eating, we chose the table. My mother ordered the Soup of the Day likewise myself, which was Butternut Squash and Sweet Potato Red Lentil Soup. She had a salmon Omelette for the main, and I had the Spanish Tortilla. They both were exquisite. The whole place was such an experience. I was first introduced back at the Day after Pride Day: The Ceremony of Love and Remembrance. A friend of mine brought me to the cafe of which at the time was closed, so we couldn't go in. However I said I'd bring my mother along. Well I never. It was MOST nondenominational. Like there was Buddhism, Catholicisms. There was a feeling of relaxation ambiance.
