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

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.

VEGAN OPTIONS AT WAHACA

Wahaca is a Mexican style chain restaurant founded by 2005 Masterchef winner Thomasina Miers. The first branch was opened in 2007 and by 2015 they had 19 branches – that is so impressive! This was my first visit to the Southbank branch and my first visit to a Wahaca as a Vegan. It used to be my go to place, so I was really excited (and a little apprehensive) about my visit. View Post
