Over the past few weeks, I have already shared my experiences as a vegetarian foodie in Portugal, Spain and France. The struggles are real when it comes to finding vegetarian food in some parts of the world. I have had many readers reaching out to me and giving me enough motivation to keep writing this series.
Many people I meet are surprised to find out that I am a vegetarian and a Mallu (Most Mallus are non-vegetarians). The next question I get is if I am a vegetarian by choice or by birth. Actually, I am a bit of both. I come from a family, where one parent comes from a pure vegetarian family while the other comes from a pure non-vegetarian family. My dad’s family are the kind of people who do not even eat garlic or mushrooms while my mom’s family will eat fish even three times a day, if given an option. I used to eat non-vegetarian food but I have been a vegetarian by choice for close to 12 years now.
So, let us move to our next destination on the list. I was traveling last weekend and I was in Calicut, Kerala for a wedding. We were waiting for lunch at our hotel when I overhead someone instructing the chef on how to make the perfect savoury pancake. I was reminded of my time in Amsterdam and decided to write about Amsterdam and Luxembourg this time around.
