Eating to Live on the Outside: 222 Veggie Vegan

It’s Saturday! Time for another “trip” to sample veggie food from far-far away and this week Eating to Live on the Outside crosses the pond to visit 222 Veggie Vegan in London, England.

Now, just because Shaun of the Dead is my favorite movie does not influence my opinion in any way. 222 Veggie Vegan is awesome! Here’s a rough draft of stuff I might order:

Bean and Tofu Pancake

  • Black eye bean and tofu pate wrapped in a whole-meal pancake, topped with tomato chunks and vegan cream sauce; normally I avoid vegan faux-foods, but I’ll give this a whirl.

222 Gardens

  • Baked plantain, okra, falafels, tomato sauce, marinated aubergines and courgettes; believe it or not, I’ve never tried okra.

Chickpea Curry

  • Seasoned vegetables, chickpeas and brown basmati rice; I’m cool with the rice, no worries.

Chef’s Salad

  • Seasoned vegetables, greens, avocado chunks, asparagus, potatoes, sun dried tomatoes and artichokes marinated with olive dressing; looks great, but dressing on the side.

Broccoli and Mushrooms Salad

  • Red onion, broccoli, mushrooms and extra virgin olive oil; same thing with the olive oil here.

Tomato, Cucumber and Organic Tofu Salad

  • Tofu, tomato and cucumber with light pesto dressing; tomatoes are a wonderful thing!

Mixed Leaf Salad

  • Mixed leaves and light pesto dressing; I dig it.

Sun-dried Tomatoes and Jerusalem Artichokes Salad

Yeah, 222 Veggie Vegan is bloody good and I love that they avoid stuff like refined and fried foods. Now, if I REALLY had to pick something, I’m going with veggie-packed Chef’s Salad.

Okay, it's your turn. Check out 222 Veggie Vegan’s menu and let me know what you’d order.
