I spent yesterday with my Sister-in-law Gemma in and around Brick Lane as we wanted to spend the day vintage clothes shopping. (I’ll show my purchases in a separate post). First though we had to have lunch to fuel us for all that rummaging through racks!
Our first stop was Boxpark. There are many fully vegan eateries and more with vegan options. We went for CookDaily as Gemma hadn’t eaten there before. I had the Adobo (a Filipino dish) and Gemma had the Pad Thai, each dish comes with the choice of tofu or vegan chicken. We both chose the tofu.
Our food was flavourful and filling!
Afterwards we went to Nosteagia to try their bubble waffles.
The waffles were light and fluffy and my coffee ice cream and hazelnuts were great sandwiched between it.
My Husband couldn’t go without so I picked up a kebab from What the Pitta! for him.
We then made the short walk to Brick Lane. Gemma picked up a couple of doughnuts from Crosstown for her and my Brother.
We then stopped by Vida Bakery in their brand new shop at 139 Brick Lane. Long time readers of my blog will know how much I love their cakes! I picked up a peanut brownie for my Husband and Gemma bought a kitchen sink brownie which has every kind of topping (hence the name). Vane gave us a sample of their new soft serve to try and I will definitely be heading back to have some with a cake.
Vegans are so spoilt for choice on this area and I am lucky it is so close to my office!
