VEGAN OPTIONS AT CARLUCCIO’S

“I wanted to bring real Italian food to Britain” – Priscilla Conran

The first Carluccio’s café was opened in 1999 in London, by Antonio Carluccio (one half of the Two Greedy Italians) and his then wife Priscilla Conran (of The Conran Shop). Carluccio’s now has over 80 branches in the UK, 2 in Ireland and 6 in the Middle East. They have quite a large non-Vegan menu as well as small food shops in their stores – (my Nan bought one bottle of olive oil while we were there for about £25!!)

A few weekends ago we were looking for a Vegan & Omni-friendly place for a family celebration and Carluccio’s seemed like a good option for us all. Although from a quick glance at the menu you can see they only have one Vegan option but the Vegan’s in the group all agreed a bowl of tomato spaghetti would be pretty darn agreeable on a cold Sunday afternoon.

BODEGA 50

Forever grateful to Instagram Queen Tsouni @yesitsallvegan (that’s her actual surname) for all of her amazing food recommendations.

Honestly, if you’re a Vegan with an Instagram account but don’t follow her then are you even a Vegan with an Instagram account? She is the greatest.

This weekend I visited Bodega 50 on Tsouni’s recommendation. It’s a small but perfectly formed veggie cafe on a leafy side street in Stoke Newington and they have the best green juice I’ve ever tried.

CLUB MEXICANA DOES OKTOBER FEAST AT HAWKER HOUSE IN EAST LONDON

This weekend saw the World Cup Final of Beer hosted by Street Feast at Hawker House.

Ten English Beers vs. Ten German Beers. Forty long years since England last won the World Cup, will our years of hurt finally be over?

We tried the ten English beers (in cute lil’ 1/5 of a pint cups) as we only had time to try one lot and the queue was shorter at the England bar. It was so nice to be able to try some new beers and find a few that I loved and one that was very questionable that I now know to avoid forever. Shout out to Barnivore for helping us to make sure we were only drinking the Vegan ones.

Street Feast’s big slogan for the weekend is “Eat. Meat. Bier. Repeat.” –  Ew. Thank fuck for Club Mexicana. View Post
