The London Guide to #National VegetarianWeek
Eat Out: Best Dishes in London for #NationalVegetarianWeek
OfficeServe is lucky to have offices in central London (hi TOG Albert House!). We are within a stone's throw from top restaurants like Boxpark, Dishoom and Barrio Shoreditch. But this week we’re looking to venture out for the best dishes dedicated to National Vegetarian Week. After scouring recommendations from GQ, Evening Standard, Square Meal and Absolutely London we’ve compiled our eating out agenda for the week.
Tuesday dinner: #TestKitchen Tuesday at Craft
The foragers and dreamers at The Craft in South East London are running a weeklong #TestKitchen Tuesday 3 course vegetarian tasting menu (vegan friendly too!). Expect a combination of seasonal bites like asparagus & fennel tartlet and experimental flavours featuring hogweed.
Wednesday lunch: Kimchi Spring Bowl at Farmacy
“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” Words to live by at Farmacy. On the top of London must eat dishes for National Vegetarian Week are the Earth Bowls at this Notting Hill favourite.
Thursday dinner: Sweet Potato Curry at Ceremony
Ceremony is the buttery, creamy, eggy, boozy friend to a top notch Steak House. They might not serve meat, but you won’t see any dull leaf-only dishes here. Try their sweet-potato curry with coconut cream and biryani rice. It’s a tiny, 30-seat only restaurant so we might have to take shifts at the bar. Worth it!
Friday lunch: Raw Tacos at Wildfood Cafe
This raw-centric, organic cafe offers a wild alchemy of textures and bitter sweet combinations you never thought would work. Dive right into their raw tacos made from dehydrated BBQ courgette, sauekraut, pink radish, avocado and sour cream served in an almond and butternut squash shell. Wow!
Saturday lunch: Spicy Bean “Wulf Burger” at Wulf and Lamb
“Run with the wolves. Eat with the lambs,” at this surprisingly meat-free eatery. Despite the appearance (and name) Wulf and Lamb serves some of the juiciest burgers in town. Their famous plant-based menu includes favourites like “Chili non Carne” with cashew sour cream and Ackee burrito with lychee-like fruit.
Sunday brunch: Full English Breakfast at The Gate (Marylebone)
Finish off National Vegetarian Week in style with a traditional Full English Breakfast veggie style. Featuring mushroom & bean sausage, hash brown, aubergine bacon, homemade baked beans, wild mushrooms, roasted tomato, toast and scrambled tofu or eggs.
Stay In: Top Recipes for #NationalVegetarianWeek
We’ve been experimenting with some beautiful new sharing salads here at OfficeServe (available for delivery to your office soon!), but this week we really want to focus on the variety available in a vegetarian diet. It’s not all just about greens. There’s a world of flavour in betwen.
‘Tis the season for asparagus everything. Restaurant menus are flooded with asparagus soups and pastas around April, with good reason. Eating seasonably can be incredibly rewarding and fun. Bring the star of the season home with this creamy oven-baked asparagus manicotti recipe by Taste Made.
Pulled Oumph! Tacos
Avocado cream and sriracha mayo are what take these tacos to the next level. Super simple to make with “pulled Oumph!” a plant-based, soya bean frozen foods brand that recently made its way from Norway into supermarkets across the UK.
Vegetarian Sausage Mushroom Sweet Potato Pie
Hearty food in the heart of summer, but light enough to make this oven-bake totally called for in the middle of May. Try Everyday Healthy Recipes’ take on a British classic — the meat pie.
Greek Spinach and Feta Filo
Greek cuisine undoubtedly delivers when it comes to lamb, but head to the mediterranean paradise and you’ll be served endless fresh dishes focused on olives, fish, feta, tomatoes and honey. Try this Greek favourite from Scrummy Lane. Helen a self proclaimed spinach and feta lover, so we trust her on this one.
Vegetarian Swedish Meatballs
Last but not least the formerly Swedish, turned Turkish, “Swedish Meatball” dish minus the meat. Pinch of yum does a lovely take on this gravy-centric dish, replacing ground beef with wild rice, breadcrumbs and mushroom balls.
