I’m a big fan of Happy Cow and it drives me crazy when people don’t update it. On a Monday night in Bologna, we tried three different places that were listed on Happy Cow as open: none of them were. When we got home that evening, it took me about ten minutes to update their opening hours on Happy Cow, and it drives me crazy that neither the company nor any of their customers updated it before me.
It’s even worse when I see a review on Happy Cow complaining that the eatery wasn’t open when it was supposed to be because the hours had changed – but the complainer in turn has not done other people the courtesy of updating it. I think Happy Cow is the best resource for vegans on the go, and I urge you to update it whenever you can, or one day you will be just like me, spending an hour walking the streets of Bologna from one locked door to another, belly grumbling.
With no other options, we staggered into Peterland-Masterchips, a fast food place not far from where we were staying. We’d spotted this sign for vegan food, and in our hour of need, it provided.
We both got the vegan burger, which didn’t look quite as grand as in the advertising. But it was a good seitan patty, which we weren’t really expecting from a generic, omni fast food place. We also had a choice of condiments, including vegan mayo. Top marks.
And we shared an order of veggie rings – despite the colours, we think they were 90% potato. They definitely hit the spot.
Have I added this to Happy Cow? Do you even need to ask?!
