RUBY & PICKLES’ FIRST BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION

 Ruby & Pickles Supper Club

 

Last night the wonderful Ruby & Pickles celebrated their first birthday by hosting an evening of delicious dishes, bubbly, tunes and general good times at the uber cool loft style space Blank 100 in Dalston.

If you haven’t already heard of Ruby & Pickles then 1) Where have you been!? and 2) R&P was formed in the Spring of 2016 by friends Sareta & Jasel who wanted to put their love of cooking to work by creating themed supper clubs around London that are all homemade, Vegetarian/Vegan and sold out (book quickly!).  View Post

RED VELVET COOKIES AND AN ACTION PACKED SOYA CHICKEN SANDWICH FROM MS CUPCAKE IN BRIXTON

 

I’ve written about Ms Cupcake once before (they made our wedding cakes, yes PLURAL, you can view that post here) but recently I tried a couple of new things from them and gosh darn it do I need to shout about them on here again!

Ms Cupcake is a shop in Brixton which specialises in exceedingly delicious Vegan cakes. They also offer an array of sandwiches, cookies, milkshakes, brownies and branded treats like Vego, Vegenaise and Vegan ice creams. Basically they’re Vegan Disneyland.

CLUB MEXICANA AT PAMELA, HAGGERSTON

 

CLUB MEXICANA IS LIFE

In what has been deemed “The Best thing to happen to East London since forever”, Club Mexicana has taken over the kitchen at Pamela in Haggerston. If that wasn’t exciting enough, they’ve done it with an entirely new menu and everything is made from scratch. I repeat, EVERYTHING IS BEING MADE FROM SCRATCH!

That includes the tacos…which includes popping the kernels of the corn in order to make the tacos!!! A whole lot of love has gone into every item on the menu. View Post

I think we can all agree on what the two main food groups are. I can practically hear you screaming at me “YEAH WE KNOW JEN, YOU DON’T EVEN HAVE TO SAY IT”, it’s just so obvious that it barely needs stating. The two main food groups are Pizza.

There’s the deep pan, greasy, doughy, delivery style that we get from the likes of Papa Johns and Pizza Hut. And then there’s the thin base, sourdough, practically healthy tasting (but not in a bad way) style that we get from fancy places like Franco Manca and your local lil Italian restaurant.

But I’m here today, to tell you about the third food group I’ve discovered. It’s Pizza, obviously. The Pizza at Voodoo Ray’s is so good that it’s busted out into a food group all of it’s own.

I’d like to boldly declare that Voodoo Ray’s is the best pizza you can get in London. No wait, the whole of the UK. And considering they only have one Vegan option on the permanent menu that is quite the statement from me!

Their pizza is thin, it’s crispy, it’s salty, it’s the perfect level of oily and the toppings are UTTER PERFECTION.

The Queen Vegan on the permanent menu has artichoke hearts, green olives, sun-blush tomatoes, red onion, tomato sauce and green sauce (think Vegan Pesto).

It is an absolute bargain at £4 per slice and their frozen margarita’s are incredible so you’ll want five of those too.

 

(Dalston branch above and below)

Voodoo Ray’s was started in 2012 after a visit to NYC they decided they wanted to bring the pizza by the slice culture to the UK as it hadn’t been done before. Their name Voodoo Ray’s is a nod to the famous New York pizza joint Ray’s as well as Voodoo Ray which is a favourite record of theirs.

The flagship branch on Dalston High Street is gorgeous and in 2015 they opened up at Box Park in Shoreditch and in 2016 in Camden Market.

Voodoo Ray’s even offer a rewards scheme called Slice Club so you can get a free slice after every 7 bought. Make sure you sign up and get your money’s worth!
