Vegans visiting Umeå, Part 1

When in Umeå, there is no shortage of vegan food available. I visited the city along with my girlfriend a week ago and thought that I would share the culinary highlights of the trip. This is the first post of two, each containing two such highlights.

First up – Västerbottens Museum. The cafe at this museum had a Beetroot Hummus Wrap with apples and cashews which was anything but a bad start of our trip. Unfortunately, the pictures weren’t of the same quality, hence the lack of illustrations from this particular place.

Next up – Båten. Everything tastes better at sea, they say (or someone has said it at some point at least, I’d wager) and this was as far as we were willing to go. Båten is a floating restaurant at the shore of Ume River and they have a great selection of vegan food with a carribean twist. We ordered a Tempeh Burger with pickled red onions as well as a Burrito filled with deep fried avocados, everything served with sweet potato fries. As unhealthy and sinfully delicious as it gets, and that’s even without mentioning the awesome dessert consisting of a coconut pannacotta or the craft beers available to go with the meal. All in all one of the best eating out experiences I have had as a vegan, I could rave about it all day.
