Ok, so I had to comeback in here, not only for another couple of cocktails (I was not successful at dry January 😬) but there was more on the menu I wanted to try. So I had a look over the menu whilst sucking away at my love on the beach 🍹 and chose my starter of Chickpea Falafel served warm with a minted yoghurt dipping sauce.
I apologise for the fact I’d eaten most of this before taking the photo but I’d once again tucked straight in as soon as it arrived 🤦🏻♀️
This was a real treat for my taste buds, I love falafel although I don’t tend to have it too often and am yet to have come across a vegan minted yoghurt sauce which compliments this really well. The portion size was just right for me and after polishing off my drink I was ready for my main meal. I opted for the Veggie Supreme Burger although I’d enjoyed my jambalaya so much previously that I was close to having this again.
The Veggie Supreme Burger 🍔 is a chargrilled flat mushroom, sweet peppers, beetroot, tomato and lettuce with violife cheese in a ciabatta and was served with fries. Mmmmm it was my first vegan burger and I wasn’t disappointed, the flavours and texture of the vegetables with the sprinkling of cheese on top of the ciabatta was a perfect combination. It’s also something I could very easily make myself at home so I need to remember this for a good lunch time treat.
I wasn’t hungry for a dessert, I’d eaten plenty but yes I had a look at the dessert menu and yes there was a vegan option and yes it was chocolate 🤭
This happened 😬 and once again I almost didn’t get the photo 😂 but it was delicious! So glad I managed to find room for this and have a taste. I was once again really chuffed with this place and with the dessert this time too, I’m going to give this a 9.5/10.
This weekend we took a trip to Byron Burger, I’ve only been here twice before but the burgers were delicious and there’s a lot of choices available with both beef and chicken (plus vegetarian options) on the menu. This was my first visit since finding out about my intolerances so it was a bit of a test for me. I’d already taken a look at the menu online and had decided my safest bet was to go for the classic burger without mayonnaise and the sweet potato fries with a drink of water (I’m getting used to this but would be nice to have a little something different from time to time). When placing my order I let the waitress know I had a lactose intolerance as I didn’t want any butter or anything going in my roll, she immediately said the manager would need to come and speak to me before placing my order. I found this a bit embarrassing to be honest because I just hate making a fuss, but it was actually a good move as the manager came over with an allergy sheet. She asked me what I was planning on having and then went through the sheet to check if it was safe, unfortunately the roll wasn’t which meant I had to have the skinny option (this replaces the roll with some salad). I decided to replace the roll I would double up on my Burger, this really wasn’t necessary 🐽, but it tasted good! The sweet potato fries were safe although the manager did warn me that there is a possibility of cross contamination with other friers that have used milk – as my intolerances aren’t too extreme I went with it and had no ill effects. I had no dressing on my salad and I really enjoyed my meal, if anything I had too much food and was far too full for the rest of the day!! I was really pleased with how the restaurant dealt with my requests and would definitely feel comfortable coming back again and seeing what else I could have to eat from here. It’s worth checking out the website first to get an idea of what you could be ok having before you take a visit but for anyone with intolerances it’s worth giving it a go and seeing what you can have.
