So tonight I went for dinner with my friend Jo. We work at the same company but in different departments. My department moved offices in November so it’s now a bit difficult to meet for lunch. We both live in the same direction so decided to do dinner, which also means we can travel a bit further as we aren’t restricted to an hour.
I had seen lots of people post photos of their pizzas from Fed by Water and I had to try it out. It’s only a 20 min bus ride from work in rush hour and is right opposite Dalston Kingsland overground station. This place is very vegan friendly, they serve meaty, vegetarian and vegan food which is great for mixed parties but there are lots of “Go Vegan” messages on the walls which I loved!
To start we shared some focaccia bread. I love a good focaccia and this one was lovely seasoned with salt and rosemary. We had oil and balsamic glaze to dip it into.
I had looked at the menu before hand and spent a long time looking through the long list of vegan pizzas. I chose this one with olives, capers, rocket and smoked tofu. You can have a crispy or soft base – I went for soft. We were surprised at the size of these pizzas, they were definitely value for money!
Jo went for the “Hot” one with spicy seitan salami. Jo isn’t vegan but she was intrigued to try the vegan cheese. She said she didn’t even notice the difference. I tried a bit of her salami and it was too spicy for me (I am a bit of a wimp!) but she asked for extra chilli flakes!
We were both well and truly stuffed by this point and so because of this and my pledge to reduce my sugar intake during Lent we decided against dessert.
When we next go we think we’ll share one pizza between us as the sweet pizzas on the dessert menu looked so tempting!
I couldn’t leave my husband out so I got him a pizza and garlic bread to take home and stunk out the train!
Have you been to Fed by Water? What did you think?
