Review: Heavenly Desserts

Both new and old vegans will know that getting a good dessert when eating out is something of a rarity. Regular readers of this blog may have noticed that when it comes to pudding at local restaurants, I can be quite scathing (and I still maintain that a scoop of sorbet alone is not adequately meeting my cravings, while my friend is tucking into a rich chocolate brownie).

Review: GAIL’s Bakery

Now I work in the city centre a whole world of delicious breakfast opportunities has been opened up to me. Back in the fold of my girl friends’ bi-monthly breakfast meet, in May we went to GAIL’s on Little Clarendon Street, in Jericho, before work to see what they had to offer.

Review: Glut

The burgers came presented on a tray in classic American comfort food diner style, wrapped in paper matching the restaurant’s unique decor. Just looking at these burgers, you can tell they are going to hit the spot when it comes to your junk food craving.

Review: Bella Italia

Bella Italia is one of those ‘Italian’ chains I’ve meant to get to for a while, repping a separate vegan menu with options for every course of your meal. Bizarrely (or perhaps not when you consider it’s next door to the theatre) I’ve actually struggled to get a table.

Review: Banana Tree

I was lucky enough to be invited to the Veganuary launch party in partnership with Banana Tree, who were donating 25p from every vegan dish sold in January to the charity. Following the event, the restaurant launched their new vegan menu in London, and then rolled it out to the rest of their UK sites.

Review: Pizza Hut

All in all, we really had no complaints about our meal. If you liked Pizza Hut before going vegan, you’ll certainly like it now. And if you didn’t really like Pizza Hut before going vegan (I probably fall into this camp) you might find yourself pleasantly surprised.

Review: Leon

It seems almost impossible that I haven’t reviewed Leon yet, as it’s been a staple grab and go lunch option for us ever since it opened in Oxford. However, in the name of Veganuary and enticed by some of the newer options I had yet to try, we headed back there to try it out.
