Perhaps unsurprisingly, the burger was the best part about the meal. It was nice and crispy on the outside but soft in the middle, flavoured with lots of spices including cumin, with chickpeas and kidney beans. Essentially though this was a more polished version of a vegan burger that me and Jamie have made at home quite often.
She’d masterfully baked and decorated a layered chocolate sponge drip cake, covered in a bright pink buttercream icing with dark chocolate dripping down the sides, topped with all manner of vegan goodies.
I’d seen and heard lots of good things about Comptoir Libanais, the new Lebanese canteen situated pride of place at the front of the Westgate, so I was excited to finally get to try dinner there with a friend. I’ve generally found Lebanese cuisine to be vegan-friendly, and with their website’s handy vegan filter I was looking forward to sharing a hassle-free, tasty meal.
