Planet Hollywood – Veggie Burger

Planet Hollywood veggie burgerq

As part of our recent trip to France – which you are all no doubt getting sick of hearing about! – one of the last places we visited was Planet Hollywood, over at Downtown Disney. We had spent the day shopping at a nearby outlet centre and popped down to Disney for the end of the day, a bit of souvenir shopping, and a quick meal. It was my birthday, so I spent the day doing things I love – shopping for expensive clothes and eating veggie burgers! read more

Berny Riviere – Berny Burger

Berny Burger

Here’s another burger from our French adventures! This time, it’s from the Berny Burger, a little fast food place serving burgers and pizza. You will find it in the small town of Berny Riviere, and more specifically, on the campsite of La Croix de Vieux Pont. This is an area where you can camp or rent a lodge, so it’s fairly popular for all kinds of holidaymakers. It’s quite open, so it seems that you could walk or drive down here even if you were not staying on site. read more

Where to Eat Veggie in the Loire

Where to Eat Veggie in the Loire

Recently we spent some time in France, with a week first in the Loire region. We stayed in a beautiful countryside cottage, which was absolute bliss – surrounded by the moos of cows and not much else, we were able to relax and enjoy home cooked food in the evenings. We also ventured out each day to explore the nearby regions, including some magnificent châteaux, some local towns, and a few other tourist spots. I then went on to stay at Berny-Riviere for another week while J returned home to work – one of the joys of being a freelancer is not having to worry about how much holiday time you’re taking! read more

VF Angers – Le Fraich’Burger

VF Fraich'burger

So, as you know by now, we’ve just spent a week in the Loire region of France. A full write up of our non-burger exploits will be coming soon (edit: here), but for now, I wanted to introduce you to a great little burger place we found in Angers. This historic town has a bustling centre full of shops, bakeries, patisseries, and restaurants, including one called VF. This is in fact one of  a pair, with the other to be found in Nantes.  read more

Vine Post: Week 1 in France

Veggie adventures in France

We’ve just spent a week in gloriously sunny France, and of course kept a bit of a food diary while we were there! I managed to track down a total of five different veggie burgers (probably a record for a 7 day holiday!), and while J returns home to work, I’m now spending another week in another part of France. Sounds harsh, but I’m here to celebrate my birthday with my family… and I’m working every day! read more
