Day One: Rise and shine! It’s Mofo time! Tell us about your breakfast
Every September is Vegan Mofo, a month of food blogging – historically, bloggers would choose a theme and post on that topic every day of the month. I was really looking forward to my first time participating, and as such I chose my theme months ago and have been preparing my posts since then. Imagine my dismay, then, when a few months ago it was announced that the system was being shaken up. No more monthly theme, just a list of daily prompts for all vegan bloggers/Instagrammers/etc to post on. I refuse to let my months of prep go to waste, so I’m going to shoehorn my prepared posts into the daily topics as best I can. And for the first day, nothing could be easier, as the prompt perfectly matches my chosen topic: breakfast.
On Sunday I made a long-awaited trip to Radost FX for the vegan brunch. It’s an intriguing place: club, bar, café and restaurant, all in one. I’d had my eye on the vegan brunch since our first trip to Prague in May and was eager to pay a visit after we moved here. There is a fairly extensive brunch menu, though it leans pretty heavily towards egg-based dishes. There are four options in the vegan section of the menu, and I went for the Elvis on Pita, because how could anyone resist a name like that?!
It’s difficult to see under all the fruit, but there is a big round toasted pita, topped with creamy, sticky peanut butter and thick banana slices. Truthfully, I could have lived without the fruit salad round the side, but it was perfectly fine. The main event was really good, and I say this as someone who is resolutely opposed to peanut butter on toast. It was stick-your-mouth-together good! The only thing to watch out for is the fact that the menu states it will be drizzled with honey. I don’t know if there’s a definitive answer on the “Should vegans eat honey?” issue, but I was surprised to see it listed on a vegan dish. It’s easy enough to ask for it to be subbed for maple syrup, but you have to pay for that privilege.
I’m definitely going to make a return trip to Radost FX – I loved the shabby chic interior and the atmosphere, plus the service was top notch (and there’s an English menu, which is a definite bonus).
Stay tuned for 29 more days of vegan breakfast heaven!
