On the Road with Moby

Where in the world this rambling musician scores veg fare
on the road with moby

Moby’s ninth studio release, Destroyed, takes us behind the scenes on a global tour with the Grammy-nominated musician. Accompanying the atmospheric tracks, composed mostly late at night in hotel rooms, a book of Moby’s photographs documents the life of a 21st-century wandering troubadour. Here, a sampling of his veg restaurant finds.

Austin, Tex.
Mr. Natural
From the outside (and, well, the inside too), it looks like a greasy spoon, but it serves amazing vegetarian Mexican food.

Porto Alegre, Brazil
Café Bonobo
Here, in a fairly small city, I came across this punk rock vegan restaurant where I had a phenomenal meat-free feijoada.

Stockholm, Sweden
Perched on a cliff over-looking the harbor, this house-turned-vegetarian restaurant has a hippie vibe, though you’ll see glamorous types eating here too.

Lisbon, Portugal
Paladar Zen
I discovered this tiny vegetarian all-you-can-eat buffet off a side street. After my friends and I ate there, the owner joked that he was going to cross off “all you can eat” from the sign out front.
