Vegan eats in Shoreditch June 2018

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!

Vegan Nights May 2018

Well it’s been over a month since I last posted. It sometimes seems like I have loads of events all at once and then none for a little while and I don’t like to post just for the sake of it!

When I was out with my friend Maxine a couple of weeks ago she mentioned she was heading to this month’s Vegan Nights and as I free and hadn’t been in a few months I decided to tag along.

The event takes place in 93 Feet East and The Boilerhouse in Brick Lane and takes up a much larger space than the last time I visited. This was great as it meant stalls weren’t cramped together and there was a lot more space for seating.

We decided to go early, which was great to beat the queues and meant I wasn’t out too late! (I do love to be in bed by 10!)

I decided to go have tofish and chips with mushy peas from Shakey Shakey Fish Bar. I’d heard of these guys but never been to an event they were at so wanted to try them out. The tofish was great, the batter was crisp and there was more seaweed than I’ve had in other tofish dishes, which gave it that fishy taste. I also really enjoyed dipping my chips in the tartare sauce.

They also had deep fried Oreos which I was really tempted by, but they’ll have to wait for next time!

Maxine went for a wrap from What the Pitta, I have tried these multiple times and they are always amazing!

For dessert I couldn’t resist this mint chocolate ice cream from Hell Yum. Mint choc chip was always my favourite ice cream flavour pre-vegan and it’s one you rarely see vegan versions of. We also tried some samples of Hell Yum’s cookies which were delicious. They also do ice cream cookie sandwiches but I was far too full for that!

There’s always two cake stalls I have to purchase something from. I picked up a Viennese Whirl from Vegan Delice and a rainbow cake along with a couple of brownies (peanut and caramel) for my Husband from Vida Bakery. These went down a right treat!

I managed to make one none food purchase as well. This gorgeous T-shirt from BCLVA (I couldn’t find a link for them, sorry!) for only a fiver! Maxine picked up a couple of different designs too. I think it’s gonna look great at activism events!

We also had a little boogie to DJ Deccy Jarrett in the bar area before I decided to head home.

There were so many other places to try out, I think I’ll definitely have to back next month!

I’ll finish with this photo of Maxine and I showing off our vegan ink!
