What I Ate in a Week at MY VEGAN CAFE (SaVeg Cafe!)

Check out my full video to see what I ate at my vegan cafe (SaVeg Cafe) for a week!

If you did not know, I actually co-own a vegan cafe in my hometown Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The cafe is located in downtown and it is called SaVeg Cafe (pronounced like “savage”). It’s a pretty long story as to how this came to be (scroll down and watch the video at the bottom which explains how it all got started!) but to summarize, my mother and I turned a regular cafe into a vegan one starting January 2017. 

It’s been almost a year since we opened and things have been going great so far. I can’t say it’s been easy running a cafe AND a YouTube channel but it has been super rewarding. I am so proud of what we’ve accomplished in just a year and even more happy about our delicious menu! 

I decided to “challenge” myself to eat only food from my cafe for a week (I did just 6 days but it sort of counts as a week, right?). Let’s be honest, it wasn’t much of a challenge because I LOVE our food. I wanted to showcase to you guys some of our menu which we love. 

Scroll down to see some pictures of our delicious menu and watch the video above to see “What I Ate in a Week” vegan cafe style! 

Here is our Breakfast Bagel Sandwich which comes with tofu, avocado, tomato, and vegan mayonnaise. Great way to start your day!
This is our Breakfast Burrito with some added avocado. We use scrambled tofu to substitute the eggs and it works real great! Alongside it is a warm cup of latte made with coffee from local Calgary brewers, Phil & Sebastian. Mmm!
Our famous No Eggs Benny! This is my favourite breakfast item which comes with coated tofu, spinach, tomato, avocado, housemade vegan hollandaise sauce on a english muffin.
For lunch I’ll start with the Vegan Tuna Poke Bowl, definitely one of my personal faves.. Marinated rice, fresh veggies & corn, tofu, marinated tomato “tuna”, toasted sesame seeds, seaweed, sriracha mayo
Smoked Tofu Sweet Chili Wrap. Perfect if you want a lighter meal or if you want to eat on the go.
Japchae is a classic Korean glass noodle dish that we make in a vegan version and serve with vegan dumplings. This is by far the most popular item on our menu so make sure to try it if you come visit!
Another classic Korean dish that we do in our own vegan style, Bibimbap, which translates to “mixed rice”. We serve ours with lentils and fresh veggies, as well as our spicy and creamy gochujang sauce. I’m eating my bowl with some vegan kimchi on the side, which we also sell at our cafe!
In the front here is our House Special which is air-fryed tofu and sweet potato tossed in traditional Korean yangnyum sauce on a bed of shredded cabbage. I had it with some brown rice this time to add some extra nutrition.
