Vegan Mofo 2013: Bites From Abroad


Well. In between zipping through Vietnam on a motorbike and touring the majestic Halong Bay, I’ve decided to participate in Vegan Mofo this year for the very first time. Vegan Mofo is an annual month of food writing for vegan bloggers; it stands for The Vegan Month of Food. Vegan bloggers from around the world participate by writing as much as they can (usually a post a day every weekday) for a month. This year, that month is September. And despite the fact that I’ll be in Vietnam and Thailand with questionable WiFi and limited time to write, I’m gonna do it, y’all.

My theme: bites from abroad. I’ll post food and drink that I’ve sampled from around the world. Stay tuned!


In the meantime, here is what I’ve been eating every single day:


I'm eating all the spring rolls.

      Where are you going to be? I WANT TO MEET UP WITH YOU SOMEWHERE (You know, when I’m not crazy busy running around at Vida Vegan).

  • veganinbrighton

    I’m going to be in & around San Francisco for about three weeks from mid sept…that’s still nowhere near you though! I would love to meet up & hang out! Where else are you headed on this trip?

      Oh cool, sounds fun!
      I’m headed to Thailand in a few weeks, then back to Portland early-mid October. Thinking of a stopover in San Francisco (Gracias Madre for welcome back to the States tacos, but that may be an expensive side trip).

        If you do that detour and get to SF before the 8th Oct lemme know & we’ll taco it up at Gracias Madre!!

    Yay, welcome to Vegan Mofo! I joined in 2011, but skipped 2012 (because of Thailand). Me too, I’ll be documenting on vegan eats in Buenos Aires, we are on the same page, yay!!! I look forward to reading your VeganMofo posts!

      Funny I’ve mentioned Thailand, where in Thailand are you heading to?

      • janessapk

        Ooooh Buenos Aires, nice! I’m not sure where I’ll be, hopefully some islands somewhere! I’m leaving it up to my brother mostly, who I’m meeting over there.

    FYI, when I was in Thailand (Bangkok area, southern Thailand, and the Andaman Islands – can’t speak for northern), there was wifi EVERYWHERE and it was usually pretty good (this was in November 2012). I was amazed. So at least there, you may be in luck, blog-wise!
