The well-known Wege Bazar invites you this Sunday to take part in their Vegan food fair. It’s a good occasion to get some produce for the upcoming Easter, and try out vegan takes on festive dishes. Except for the vegetarian and vegan staples, such as hummus, salads, nut milks, etc, expect sweets, vegan wines (!), ice-cream and waffles. There will be local food producers from all over the country, so if you’re looking for ethically and locally produced goods, the fair is a must-go. Plus, if you’re looking for some culinary inspirations, you can take part in two workshops- devoted to vegan Easter recipes and spring detox. We recommend- not only for vegans!
This time we have a lot of photos! A semi-business meeting of four ladies (incl. a chef) took place in Totomato this week. You enter the bistro through their wholefoods store, which reminded me of the Eataly concept and felt quite similar. There weren’t many people, so we got served quickly, but the waiter had little idea about the menu. When asked about certain dishes, he just read out what was already in the menu. Plus, he couldn’t recommend anything- being new on staff isn’t an excuse. Train your waiters better, dear owners! Anyway, the weird service was balanced by nice food: I ordered the vegetarian set, and Mag went for the meaty one- each for 35PLN, consisting of three dishes. First went the olive tapenade- served beautifully in a wonderful plate- which I personally found a bit disappointing. It was a bit bland, and I like to eat it with some fresh or toasted bread on the side, instead of crumbled sourdough in the paste itself. Ok though.
