Vegetarian haven in Tainan: Vonny’s Garden Vegetarian Restaurant

Being vegetarian in Taiwan proves to have its difficulties if you don’t speak Mandarin and can’t ask for other options. If you’re experiencing the language barrier and shopping with your eyes, you may find the majority of street vendors are focused around meat. Sure, there are plenty of egg dishes and stinky tofu, but if you like variety like we do, these options get old pretty fast.

Luckily, Eric and I are pescetarian, which opens up some doors. Unluckily, I still don’t like eating something that’s looking at me (like shrimp with the head still on), so I’ve been having trouble finding protein-filled eats in a country that doesn’t serve cheese, beans, or much soy. That is, until we stumbled upon Vonny’s Garden Vegetarian Restaurant. All is saved and beyond delicious!

How to Cook A Delicious, Budget Meal for Two

Eating on a budget doesn’t always have to mean sacrifice. Sure, if you’re saving up at home, eating ramen is super cheap. If you’re on the road, eating locally is fun & usually the most inexpensive (a meal for street food in Thailand can be $1-3). But, hey, sometimes we all need a little change.

After two months on the road in south east Asia, I’m craving for some. It’s been a bumpy road adjusting to street food and, quite frankly, I miss cheese. SO! I want to share with you a ridiculously simple recipe that will stretch beyond one meal for two (maybe even three meals!) and is simply divine: My Little Spaghetti Dish
