As you probably realise from my blog posts I do try and get round to as many places with vegan options as possible but I can’t be everywhere (unfortunately!) so we have a guest post today from my Sister-in-law, Gemma who enjoyed Pancake Day at The Birds with a couple of friends.
So over to Gemma…
“A couple of friends from work and I decided we would go check out the options “The Birds” in Leytonstone had on offer. We had seen on Instagram they were doing a special pancake menu.
We shared the non spicy dirty fries, salt and pepper cauliflower bites and the chickenish burger.
The fries were fab but could have done with some more toppings.
The cauliflower bites were delicious and had a great sauce.
The burger was made from seiten and was quite dense but still super tasty with plenty maybe, bacon and perkins.
We ordered three of the pancakes on offer the orkay, nana and nuts and the stack all to share.
The stand out favourite was the stack which had plenty maple syrup and chicken style strips on top.
The others looked really great but only had toppings on the top. We thought toppings in between each layer with some ice cream would have made them less dry.
The oreo based pancakes should have come with coconut cream so when we enquired, we were told they had run out so we asked for more syrup and so we were brought a jug of maple syrup and some of the peanut butter sauce.
The birds menu is heavy with vegan options but they do a small selection of meat dishes. They also do a good brunch menu.
All of the drinks on the menu and specials board were clearly marked stating which were veggie or vegan friendly.”
Well doesn’t that sound fabulous?! I think I’ll have to get down there soon.
Have you been to The Birds? What did you think? Let me know in the comments below.
