Hi All! So it’s been a while, 4 months in fact. I’ve had some issues with fatigue over the last few months caused by my thyroid problem, so blogging wasn’t my priority. I’ve had an adjustment to my medication and I feel like I’m getting my mojo back!
There are a couple of things that have inspired me to get back to blogging – my trip to Japan where I have tried some amazing vegan food and a fellow blogger. I got friendly with Jenny from Herbivores’ Heaven last year during Vegan MoFo (vegan month of food). I haven’t taken part this year due to the clash with my big holiday but Jenny is and she is basing her month on her own recent trip to Japan.
I had every intention of posting my review of Unity Diner back when I went a few months ago so here it finally is.
I had been wanting to visit Unity Diner ever since it opened. Unity Diner is the brain child of Earthling Ed and is a non-profit which helps fund Ed’s activism charity Surge. When my friend Marina announced she was coming to the UK (from Japan) during Golden Week (extended this year due to the new emperor being signed in) I knew it was the perfect opportunity to go to Unity Diner.
I chose this enormous burger! As I usually do with burgers this size I chopped it in half to make it more manageable. It was really tasty and the chicken style patty wasn’t dry at all.
Marina chose the cheeseburger and we shared some fries and mac & cheese.
The mac was lovely and gooey and just how I like my mac & cheese.
Even though we were starting to feel full we couldn’t resist dessert. Vegan desserts have come on leaps and bounds in non-vegan restaurants so I definitely have more opportunities to have one, but I’m still excited by a dessert menu at a vegan restaurant where there are multiple options.
I chose the cheesecake and Marina had the (badly photographed) crumble. Both were fabulous.
I hope to return to Unity Diner soon to try out their weekend brunch menu and taste their waffles and/or pancakes!
Have you visited Unity Diner in Hoxton? What did you think? Let me know in the comments below.
I will be back soon with some posts about Japan.

I’m sorry to read of your thyroid issues and fatigue. I too have a similar issue and found that the medical
Medium was a big help.
The food looks incredible and you’re right to have dessert!

Thank you, I think I have my dosage sorted now. I have blood tests every 6 months but sometimes I have to press docs if I’m symptomatic in-between. Yes dessert is a must!
