London’s first ever fully vegan pub opened it’s doors last year, The Spread Eagle in Homerton, East London.
There was a time when even though I’ve lived in East London since I upped sticks and moved from Norfolk to London 12 years ago, I would have considered myself more of a West end girl in regards to where I went out, the restaurants, bars and clubs I frequented and the circles I mixed in but I’m so happy that I remained living east as now it really is London’s vegan hub. From Shoreditch to Hackney, vegan restaurants are opening up almost weekly and the vegan boom is, well, booming!
The Spread Eagle is only a few minutes in an Uber for me, I could drive but the cocktail menu is just too good, they even do a black cocktail called Lavender is The New Black, perfect for a vegan vamp! I’d also recommend the Smoked Pineapple Cosmopolitan.
I’ve pretty much sampled EVERYTHING on the menu and the restaurant is run by Club Mexicana and the food, glorious, I have to say, the tofish taco’s feature probably the best tofish I’ve ever tasted, the tempeh bacon taco’s are just divine and it really is hard to decide what I like best out of the MFC (Mexican Fried Chicken) burger, the Club Mex Cheeseburger or the Sticky Ribs Burger, they’re all just too tasty and the wings and nachos are amazing too.
The best Mexican food outside of Mexico? Yes, in fact, even better because it’s all vegan!!!
Dessert wise, I love the cheesecake but it’s the chilli chocolate tart with vegan whipped cream that really tantalizes my taste buds.
If you live in london and haven’t been, you must go, it’s also dog friendly so take your pooch!
