The Handlebar Cafe and Kitchen have a number of vegan options on their brunch menu, savoury or sweet, to choose from, so we enjoyed a meal on a little table out the front of the cafe in the sun.
My main course, the vegan thali, was honestly one of the nicest things I’ve eaten in a long time. As the menu explains, ‘according to Indian food custom, a proper meal is a perfect balance of all the six flavours sweet, salt, bitter, sour, astringent and spicy’ and this meal really did deliver on that!
With lots of the traditional fish and chip shop offerings on the menu, I had to go for that Jack and chips. When I opened my takeaway box, the whole family were intrigued, and impressed at how realistic it looked from the outside.
