Vegan Food Experience at The Life Bistrot Restaurant in Volterra, Italy

Vegan Food Experience at The Life Bistrot Restaurant in Volterra, Italy

By Tina Chau Nov 12, 2019

We had a wonderful time in Italy last October traveling around Tuscany. Fall was even more breathtaking in the region widely known for its dramatic landscapes, mesmerizing natural scenery, and charming small towns like Volterra. The picturesque walled medieval town has a timeless feel to it. The past and present seem to intertwine in the town's daily life. It was there that we also had a fascinating food experience at The Life Bistrot Restaurant, a 100% plant-based breakfast and lunch place in the heart of the ancient town.

After spending a week enjoying the autumn foliage, cold and foggy mornings, and pleasant weather in Chungju, I headed out to Seoul to meet my friend and squeeze in a bit of sightseeing. Unfortunately, I only had less than a day to stay this time so we had to do some adjustments to my itinerary. Instead of having dinner in Plant Cafe, an all-vegan place in Itaewon, we decided to have lunch there instead.
