Review: Brewdog

So Iโ€™d ordered the Hail Seitan burger, a BBQ seitan steak served with hummus and kale. The burger itself was very meat-like, so much so that I had to check there wasnโ€™t a meat version of the same burger on the menu.

Review: Pasta Evangelists

A lover of all things carbs, I was happy to be contacted by Pasta Evangelists asking if Iโ€™d be interested in trying some of their plant-based range during the week the home delivery service was due to focus on their new vegan dishes.

Review: The Folly Vegan Tasting Menu

A last-minute tip off from a friend led me to learn that The Folly was launching a vegan tasting menu, the test run being last Sunday evening. I wouldnโ€™t ordinarily be looking out for vegan events at The Folly as they have nothing vegan-friendly on their regular dining menu at all, but a look at the tasting menu suggested this had the makings of a really great experience…

Review: Oxford’s Grill

At a first glance online, the menu also looks like a relative vegan haven – as this kind of cuisine can be, featuring lots of veggie mezze. I had identified more dishes that I wanted to try than I’d be able to reasonably eat in one sitting. Sadly however when it came to ordering, my hopes were dashed a little bit.

Review: The Nosebag

I had heard lots of good things about the veggie options at The Nosebag in town, so arranging a catch up with a friend felt like a good opportunity to try the place out. The Nosebag offers a seasonal menu featuring a handful of hot vegan dishes, as well as an array of salads which you can pick and mix from if you prefer.

Review: Cinnamon Kitchen

Cinnamon Kitchen was one of the first restaurants to open in the new Westgate on the rooftop terrace, serving up creative modern-Indian dishes in an elegant setting. I’d spied the menu before they opened and there are plenty of veggie-friendly dishes featured, but I wasn’t sure how much they’d be able to offer vegans with the dairy seemingly featuring heavily. I was happy this weekend however to be proved wrong…

Review: Banana Tree

I’ve visited Banana Tree a couple of times before when I wasn’t vegan, and felt that it was quite hit and miss – if you ordered well, you’d love it, but if you made the wrong choice, you’d leave feeling pretty disappointed. Exploring the vegetarian menu though (most of which is also vegan), I found myself faced with way too many choices.

Review: The Coconut Tree

A glance at the menu of recently-opened The Coconut Tree on St. Clements suggests itโ€™s a relative haven for vegans. With no less than 16 vegan dishes, visiting was one of those rare occasions a vegan finds themselves in the position of having too much choice.

Review: Thali

Following a successful trial of a new vegan dish on the Thali festive menu which I unfortunately didn’t get a chance to try at the time, I was very happy to hear it’s been added it as a permanent fixture, and in good time for those taking part in Veganuary to enjoy it.
