Join us for our first vegan networking dinner at Cafe Mandarina in Mandara Equestrian Club!
An afternoon of tasting healthy food, spending time with the Ride to Rescue horses and meeting like-minded people!
A completely new concept in the UAE.
This dinner is for anyone who feels interested - vegans or non vegans, animal lovers, nature lovers... if this event has your attention, why not give it a try?

As animal lovers, both Yasmin and Monica have lived as vegetarians and mostly also vegans for many years.
Noticing an uprise in the past years of this way of eating has been very uplifting.
We want to use this afternoon to meet both other vegans in the UAE, but also to introduce this type of food to non-vegans and give them a little tasting.

Additionally, we are proud to welcome Pure Vegan Love with their exceptional plant based Artisan Cheezes at the event. They will bring samples of their non-dairy, additive free range of "cheeses" to the dinner for you to try and taste!
We will start at 4pm on Saturday, October 20th in Cafe Mandarina which
