In this week’s video I talk about eating out as a vegan in Donegal and the challenges of eating out as a vegan in general. I recently went on a trip to Stranorlar with my friend Casey and her baby (who are both vegans) to check out the Hatter Tea Room and Kee’s Hotel and Restaurant. The Hatter Tea Room is breastfeeding friendly which is why it was such an attractive option for my friend, and I made sure to call ahead to see if they had any vegan food on offer. Thankfully, they already had a few options available including a breakfast option, salads and vegan treats. I love it when that happens!
When it comes to eating out, make sure to call ahead and just ask if they have a vegan option. The worst case scenario is that they don’t have anything to offer you and won’t try to rustle something up, but generally people are nice and try to accommodate you. Preparing ahead makes eating out as a vegan a million times easier. Nobody likes turning up somewhere and realising they can’t eat anything.
Do you know of any vegan friendly places to eat out at in Donegal? Let me know in the comments!
