Review: All Bar One

All Bar One was near the top of my list to visit during Veganuary thanks to their impressive limited edition menu featuring seven vegan main courses, four starters, and a couple of puddings.

Review: Wagamama Noodle Lab

Half of the Soho Noodle Lab menu consists of a selection of the dishes on offer at Wagamama branches across the country, while the other half features a range of limited edition meals, at a reduced price in order for them to collect feedback. It was great to see that a number of these were vegan, showing that Wagamama is listening to feedback that we want more plant-based options!

How to throw a vegan dinner party

Happy new year all! In the spirit of Veganuary, I thought I would start the year off with something a bit different from my usual posts. In the hopes of helping anyone who is new to veganism, interested in cooking more plant-based foods, or just plain curious about what on earth we eat, I thought I’d share a series of tips on issues around vegan living.

Review: Vegan Christmas Dinner at Zizzi

The booking experience is great, as menu selections and deposit payments are all done via an online portal, meaning little hassle for the party planner, important when there are about 16 of you. The menu, as always with Zizzi, is really clearly labelled and caters for most dietary requirements, as well as including a box for notes if you have any specific allergies or other concerns.

Review: Happy Friday Kitchen

I decided on the Mac Daddy, a fried chicken-style seitan burger, topped with mac ’n’ cheese, in a bun with salad, with fries on the side. The seitan burger was perfectly crispy on the outside and the texture was pretty accurate to what you expect from a chicken burger. The seasoning was spot on too, so you’re left with something quite realistic.

Review: Rola Wala

Rola Wala has firmly replaced Leon as my go-to great value healthy ‘fast food’ option in town. With more than half of the food on offer being vegan, they serve up rolls and bowls packed with nutrients, and as I discovered, more importantly with flavour.

Review: Byron Burger

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the burger was the best part about the meal. It was nice and crispy on the outside but soft in the middle, flavoured with lots of spices including cumin, with chickpeas and kidney beans. Essentially though this was a more polished version of a veganΒ burger that me and Jamie have made at home quite often.

Review: Comptoir Libanais

I’d seen and heard lots of good things about Comptoir Libanais, the new Lebanese canteen situated pride of place at the front of the Westgate, so I was excited to finally get to try dinner there with a friend. I’ve generally found Lebanese cuisine to be vegan-friendly, and with their website’s handy vegan filter I was looking forward to sharing a hassle-free, tasty meal.

Review: Wagamama

This post is actually an amalgamation of two visits to Wagamama within the space of two weeks. I suppose that should be an indication that the Japanese-style restaurant has plenty of options for vegans, is relatively budget-friendly, and the food is up to scratch.

Review: Pho

Happy World Vegan Month fellow vegan foodies! I was happy to celebrate World Vegan Day (November 1st) at the brand new Pho in Westgate with my boyfriend, and a huge celebration it turned out to be because Pho had invited us to try as many vegan dishes as we liked.
