No, vegans don’t just eat salad.

Being vegan is tough work. A lot of meal-planning is involved because trust me, there’s nothing worse than arriving home STARVING only to find the fridge empty (the same applies whether you’re plant-based or not).

Luckily, finding tasty vegan eats is no longer half as difficult as it used to be and Galway is overflowing with delicious things to try.

Here are nine things we want to sink our teeth into this week.

Kick things off with a fry. We Irish love a good fry.

This seitan burger because obviously. Drool-worthy.

Introducing the 'Vegan Beanus Williams' pizza from Dough Bros.I mean the name is reason enough to give it a whirl.

The ever-changing Gerona hotpots will fill you right up. Keep your eye out for the vegan squash, cumin and spinach one.

If meatball subs were your jam before choosing to go vegan, you have to try the beetball marinara at Café Temple. Topped with vegan cheese…need I say more?

Pancakes had to feature (do you know me at all?). These ones come adorned with flowers. FANCY.

Lime does some of the best vegan Asian food around.

Pasta is the answer to every question and that’s a fact.

Pasta Factory, Galway 🍝 Early November my cousin was in Galway and wanted to eat something vegan (amazing right?). I’d never been to the Pasta Factory so I suggested we try it. 🍝 I got the Vegan Bolognese and my cousin got the Vegan Pasta Alla Putanesca. 🍝 The Bolognese was delicious. The sauce was rich and flavourful, I really liked the vegan cheese they used, it was creamy and not plastic-y at all. The soy mince ensured that I didn’t feel like anything was ‘missing’ from the dish 🍝 My cousin really enjoyed her dish, it had olives and capers. Though the dishes looked very similar, when I tried both they tasted differently to me. Plus I don’t like olives so the Bolognese was my preferred dish. 🍝 Both super filling, had to go home and lie down after. Didn’t even have room for dessert, a win and a loss 😂 🍝 Also the plates are edible, tried to eat mine, it tasted just how it looks, like raw wheat. Price, €10.50 for a small pasta €11.50 for a large, very reasonable as I was stuffed after eating a large. 🍝 Such a cute little restaurant, seems like a cute date spot if you love pasta as much as I do. 🍝 #vegan #galwayvegan #irishvegan #galway #veganpasta

Let them eat cake! Let them always eat cake. This coffee walnut cake looks positively scrumptious.
