It is time for a straight up vegan food blog post. Sometimes I love simply describing a delicious meal and nothing more.
222 Veggie Vegan is a glorious restaurant situated in West London. If you want details on their fabulous vegan alcohol menu or their handy location, check my earlier post. This one is just a quick fix for serious vegan foodies.
All of the following was devoured during a recent visit Josh and I made to my favourite London restaurant (so far – I’m open to trying more!).
We started with the garlic bread. A wholewheat bun was lightly toasted and seasoned. It was crisp on the outside, moist on the inside and rather reasonably priced at £2.25. It was the perfect commencement and things continued on a positive projectory.
Josh ordered a dish named Seitan Stroganoff. When it arrived, I had to conjure what little willpower I possess not to pounce on the mouthwatering meal. For the sake of this blog, I was able to spirit a few spoonfuls onto my plate. This was for reviewing purposes only, of course. The menu describes the item as seitan strips, caramelised onions, fresh herbs and pepper combined in a creamy, cashew sauce. The stroganoff was perfectly complimented by a serving of brown basmati rice. The price tag for this might meal was £10.95. Money well spent indeed.
Next up on the table was my choice from the à la carte dinner menu, the simply-titled Vegan Roast. My plate featured an irresistible combination of potato/parsnip mash flavoured with herbs, succulent slices of juicy seitan and a steamed green bean/carrot medley. A pot of onion gravy nestled on the plate was put to good use. The meal was exquisitely balanced with just the right amount of everything. I paid £11.50 for the extreme privilege of eating this world-class dish.
When dessert time rolled around, Josh and I agreed to share a dish. In hindsight, I don’t know what we were thinking. 222 Veggie Vegan visits come around so infrequently, I should know to take advantage of every opportunity. Live and learn.
The Chocolate Gateau arrived on a plate with vanilla ice cream and a few pieces of fresh fruit for garnish. The frosting was decadent, rich and delectable. The sponge let the team down a tad but at £5.25, the cake solidified a stunning dining experience. 222, you’ve done it again.
