A few months ago, I considered becoming a vegan. I then realised that I loved cheese and chocolate too much lol!
Having said that, my aim is to try out more vegetarian and vegan restaurants.
I ended up going to a vegan/ vegetarian restaurant back in August after seeing a delightful review by my favourite food blogger, Ella (Deliciously Ella)
The name of the restaurant was the Wild Food Cafe, which is situated in the colourful and quirky side street called 'Neal's Yard' (near Covent garden station). They specialise in raw cuisine.
I ended up trying the 'Wild Pizza Special' which contained dairy free coconut cheeze, wild sea purslane, basil pesto, tomato, goji berry marinara, olives and artichoke. The sides included avocados and spiralised courgettes (delicious!). I actually enjoyed this dish, although I still prefer normal pizza to raw pizza! This meal did fill me up for hours though - I was too full to eat dinner.
My brother ended up having the 'Wild Burger' (shiitake, raw olive and dulse burger) with salsa, onions and lettuce. Sweet potato fries were also given - these were to die for! I need to learn how to make these myself.
My brother and I also tried the 'Forgotten ecstasy smoothie' which contained raw cacao liquor, cacao nibs, vanilla, cinnamon, coconut, almonds, figs and date. This smoothie was slightly on the warm side which was off putting!
Would I go here again?
Yes. I would love to try the sweet potato fries again and maybe try a dessert! The staff in the cafe were extremely passionate and helpful.
Have you been to any vegan or vegetarian restaurants?
