Vegan MoFo 18 – Day 26

Today’s prompt – Favourite Holiday

My Husband and I were together eight years before we got married and decided on our honeymoon location long before we decided to get married!

We went to Japan in the spring of 2014 (six months after our wedding) to see the cherry blossoms and experience lots that Japan has to offer. We’re hoping to go back next year to explore some other delights.

One of my Husband’s favourite dishes from that trip was curry udon. A curry broth with vegetables and noodles topped with tofu deep fried in bread crumbs. Usually when we make this at home we use a Fry’s chicken style burger sliced up to do the trick!

I didn’t actually have time to make this dish this week so I went back through my camera roll to find this picture.

The curry sauce cubes are easy to find in supermarkets and we usually fight over whether to get the medium or hot ones, when we make it we use a mixture of both. Straight to work noodles are great to make this an even quicker meal!

Vegan MoFo 18 – Day 26

Govinda’s Pure Vegetarian

My Mum and I were going to see a matinee show this weekend so we decided to go for lunch beforehand. I’ve walked past Govinda’s so many times but never been in so I thought I’d suggest it to Mum, who gladly agreed.

The restaurant is part of the Krishna temple and is a cafeteria style where you queue up choose your food and then pay at the till.

We both went for the Unlimited Thali which came with two curries, rice, lentil soup, salad and I added a Punjabi samosa on the side.

This meal was an absolute delight. I especially liked the kidney bean curry and Mum was a big fan of the lentil soup. Nothing was overly spicy which was good for a spice wimp like me! This huge plate was £9.95 with £1 for the samosa, they also do a smaller plate for £6.95. I think this was great value and had a lovely casual vibe. I would definitely recommend if you are in the Soho area.

After our lunch we still had a bit of time so we went to Tap Coffee on Wardour Street, part of a small chain of coffee shops with a stripped back aesthetic. We both had an oat milk latte and Mum went for a vegan rose and pistachio cake which tasted lovely!

As we were on Wardour Street we had to pay a visit to Yorica! I went for vanilla and matcha frozen yogurt with raspberry sauce which was lush!
