Veggie / Vegan food

Obviously not posting this in the chippy tea thread, but went to Brighton which is obviously loaded with options. But on Saturday I went to What The Pita and had A Kebab Chip Box. They won best Takeaway at the UK Kebab awards, and while I’ve not had a Chicken donner in years, it tasted as I remembered. Really recommend it!

Was really disappointed in What The Pita when I went to be honest. I thought the texture of the 'chicken' was a bit off, and they drowned it in sauce to compensate. But could've been an off day I guess.

Luckily there are a shitload of options in Brighton.

I’ve been cooking on Twitch for a bit now alongside the gaming stuff. Some of what I’ve made is Veggie friendly including Shakshuka and a Spinach and Feta Frittata.   

Made Veggie Lasagna last night. Was very nice!

I’ve found that the trick with Quorn mince is to not cook it like meat.  If you’re making a bolognese or chilli or something, make the sauce but stick the Quorn mince in right at the end for about

Is it Vegan? 

Absolutely! Purely plant based menu down to the ice cream and shakes they do!

@SuperBaconi thought the sauces were the let down. Really runny, but found the texture of the chicken spot on, but could be either  a bad day that you went, or that my rose tinted memories of Kebabs meant I thought it was spot on. We went to Burgerz and Bangerz as well. Wife had a moving mountains hot dog and I had the chick’n burger. Both were nice but the burger was no different to Temple of Seitan I’ve had in London or the happy chicken (I think that’s it’s name) in Brighton

That kebab looks great, it reminds me I haven't been down to Veggie Corner in a while. It's just outside Cov city center but is well worth seeking out, they cut off a third of their chippy and turned it into a veggie/vegan only shop.

Looks absolutely awesome. More than a touch jealous.

It’s a small chain. Have a few dotted about. But Brighton was a great choice for Vegans or vegetarians. Though a few places we wanted to go would not allow walk-ins and we’re booked the whole time. Just an excuse to go back

Merzbow's post about Veggie Corner reminded me of Chennai Dosa in Wembley, where they split their restaurant into separate sections, one for veggies, and one for CARNISTS(!). Really good food there.

I just found out they closed permanently, but simultaneously that they're quite a successful chain, with branches in several places in the UK, including Coventry and Manchester. Unfortunately, their London(ish) branches are quite far from me, mostly in the extreme reaches of Saaf Lahndahn, and one in East Ham, which I have no other reason to visit ever.

But I strongly recommend them as an eatery in general.

It appears we have one about 10 minutes away from me, I may have to check it out. I've not had a Dosa in about 2 years. I was always quite partial to a paneer one when I lived up north but never found one as good here- partly because there are lots of other great options in Birmingham and I usually pick them first.

Ah, cool! Let us know what you think. As I understand it, they're a franchise system, which potentially means that one restaurant's output might be different from that of others. It'd be good to know how consistent they are.

EDIT: There was a mini-chain of veggie restaurants not far from me, Jai Krishna in Stroud Green and Jai Shri Krishna in Wood Green - unfortunately the latter closed. But they do amazing Indian vegetarian food, and for a really good price. They have a masala dosa on the menu at something like £2.50, and it's both delicious and gigantic - supposed to be a starter, but really fills you up.

Sanskruti in Manchester's a good 'un for Indian as a vegan. I've heard good things about Ruyi for vegan Chinese too.

As an aside, the Happy Cow app is good for checking out vegan/veggie restaurants in cities.

Yep, I have been to the Croydon Chennai Dosa a number of times, @Carbomb - always reliable!

Nice. If the standard's consistent across the board, might very well visit the East Ham one when the current situation passes.

For anyone within range of Hackney Wick, I can't recommend the Hogless Roast highly enough. They usually operate as a touring food van and I first came across them at a vegan market at Coventry's Fargo Village. They were giving away free samples of their hash brown bites and basically everyone who tried one went and bought a full order (the hash brown bites are sprinkled with Tubby Tom's Dragon Salt, which has since become a bit of an addiction for my girlfriend and I.) We now go out of our way any time they are anywhere nearby. 

Speaking of Fargo Village, anyone in Cov who hasn't tried Dirty Kitsch needs to get down there and have some of their vegan fried chicken. I'd recommend getting a side of garlic mash with it. Delicious!

Just tried these and was pretty impressed. Very good texture, held together and they were very burgery. 7 year old didn't notice they were meat free as well, the absolute suckeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeer.

Just tried one of these on the strength of the recommendations in this thread. Really good! Hope it's ok on the way out as some of these meat subs fuck with my guts but I really liked it.
