CLUB MEXICANA, DINERAMA, SHOREDITCH

 

Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! That’s the sound of me FINALLY completing my Club Mexicana locations bingo card.

On the weekend I stopped by Dinerama in Shoreditch to get my long overdue Vegan Mexican fix. Forgive me Father, for I think it has been SEVEN months since my last Club Mexicana!! That is the longest I have ever gone without Club Mex since they opened. WHY oh why did I ever move out of London *shakes fist at sky*

 

DALSTON | LEWISHAM | HAWKER HOUSE | CAMDENSUPPER CLUB

 

The incredible achievement of completing my Club Mexicana locations bingo card was overshadowed by an even bigger milestone. This was my Mum’s first ever Club Mexicana!

Almost as exciting as when I took my Sister for her first Club Mexicana last Summer in Camden. Taking her first bite of Tofish Taco, dripping chimichurri sauce straight onto my Nephew’s head as he napped in his baby bjorn. This is actually what’s known as a Vegan baptism.

Anyway, Mum LOVED it (of course) and she crowned the Chikn Wings as her favourite dish.

RAILWAY PUB, SOUTHEND

 

Oh hi there! Long time no blog. In the most first world of all problems I’ve been without a computer for the last 6 months and blogging without one is pretty hard truth be told. Short story long, things should be back on track over the next few weeks, so buckle up and let’s get back to it.

A couple of weeks ago we headed over to Southend so that we could go for lunch at a place I’ve had on my list ever since moving out of London, the Railway Pub.

The Railway is a hotel, a very well loved music venue and a pub with a cracking vegan menu.

The staff are super friendly, the decor is really cool and they don’t charge extra for condiments. When can I move in??

TAKEAWAY STYLE SWEET & SOUR TOFU RECIPE

 

I’m a big tofu fan and this recipe is one of my all time favourite ways to eat it. I like to whip this up on a Friday or Saturday night, it feels like you’re having a takeaway but you’ve spent a fraction of the price!

This recipe is so comforting, sweet, rich and satisfying. The tofu has a great crunch and the sauce has the softest of spice kicks (but feel free to add more chilli or leave the chilli out altogether!). View Post

5 DINNERS FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT TO TRY SOME VEGAN MEALS BUT DON’T WANT TO SPEND HOURS COOKING

 

I know a lot of people who would like to try out  a few Vegan meals but who also don’t like to cook, so this one’s for you!

I never used to be that much of a cook before I went vegan and fell in love with cooking, so I totally feel you. I didn’t know how to cook rice, I had no idea about herbs & spices and my faviurite dinners were ones I could make entirely from the freezer, usually Kiev, chips & beans.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with a freezer dinner, I still have them loads, but I would LOVE it if you could switch perhaps one or two of those meals to a vegan version. It’s all about baby steps!

So I thought I’d throw together a few of my favourite super easy meals which take very little preparation and only use a few, simple ingredients. View Post
