WHAT I ATE #12: 2016 RESTAURANT ROUND UP


At the end of last year I wrote a post about all the new restaurants and cafes I visited in 2015 (there weren’t loads ~ click here to read it) and this year I wanted to end the year with the same blog post.

Last year I only included London and I left out things like high street chains & bakeries and I only included fully Vegan/Vegetarian places, but this year I’ve listed pretty much everything because 1) I bloody love lists 2) I hope it gives you a few places to add to your list of places you want to go to and 3) I love having a list to look back on ~ eating is the best hobby and Vegan joints are my Pokémon.

I’ve included both brand new to me places and places I’ve already been to but tried something new and noteworthy.

In no particular order, here is a round up of the restaurants, cafes and bakeries I have stuffed my face at in 2016. View Post

WHAT I ATE #11: CHRISTMAS 2016

Merry Christmas, Folks! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, spent lots of time with your loved ones, ate lots of tasty food and got a few glorious presents!

I came down with a chest infection the Sunday before Christmas and I’m still sick now, so it’s not been the best but I think I’ve made the most of it!  View Post

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.
