Fresh from successfully meeting Tuesday, I’ve gotten inspired to set up another meeting. This time, it was with good Instagram friends: Rosie or @RosiePetalz and Jen or @WhollyVegan. All three of us live in the Bay Area within driving distance so I thought why not hang out in person.
Instagram is truly magical. It’s just like this blog, it makes the world smaller and connects like minded individuals who otherwise would have never crossed paths. Yet, I still think nothing beats real human interaction.
Of course, it’s always smart to use good judgement when deciding to meet online friends in person. As you all know, social media could be a mixed bag of personalities. In our case, Rosie, Jen, and I have created a legit rapport before meeting up.
The three of us went to two places: one that I’ve never been and another that has become my tried-and-tested vegan spot. Here are the pictures from our day out:
Lunch at Nature Vegetarian:
Chili String Beans, the perfect amount of heat and spice in a dish.
Their dumplings were kinda of mushy that day, otherwise they tasted good.
Vegan Sharkfin soup. It does exist!
Sesame Chickum. Their most popular dish. From the taste of it, I could understand why. (Btw, I learned the staff makes its own mock meats from scratch!).
After lunch, we headed to Timeless Coffee for some vegan desserts and hot drinks.
What I ordered: 3 kinds of vegan mini cupcakes: Red Velvet, Chocolate, and Caramel Cupcakes (x2) Yum!
The spread of vegan desserts and coffee.
And here we are: me, Rosie, and Jen. Three Vegan Filipinas in the Bay Area.
