This week my friend Jo and I went out for our monthly dinner to 90° Melt in Stepney which has been on my “to do” list for a while.
They describe themselves on their website as a vegan and vegetarian restaurant serving American comfort food.
At 90° MELT, we have combined TAPAS style dining with AMAZING Grilled Cheese sandwiches, (or as we call them – MELTs) so our customers don’t have to choose!
We chose the Waldorf and the Mexican for our sandwiches, as these are tapas they are slightly smaller than regular ones but just as tasty.
We also chose the buffalo cauliflower wings and potato wedges. The cauliflower was really good but the sauce on top was a bit spicy for me. The wedges were from massive baking potatoes and both these dishes were bigger than I was expecting.
We went for the lentil salad to add a bit of greenery. When we first arrived I asked that we had the “vegan version” of everything. When this arrived it came covered in feta so it went back to the kitchen to have the feta replaced with extra lentils.
At this point I was well and truly stuffed but Jo soldiered on and ordered a vegan brownie with (non-vegan) mascapone. I tried a bit from the mascapone free end and it was rich and gorgeous tasting packed with walnuts.
I went for a ginger masala chai made with soya milk which had a great kick and wasn’t too sweet.
All in all I was really impressed with 90° Melt and thought it was great value for money. I’ll definitely be returning!
