As a restaurant reviewer for the Nottingham Post with my ‘Veg Out’ column, I regularly visit restaurants and cafes. So I thought you might appreciate my top 5. They are a mix of specific vegetarian restaurants or places serving really good veggie options
In no particular order:
Escabeche, West Bridgford. This has to be the best place for Tapas veggie options; from the menu 30 dishes are suitable for vegetarians. I would especially recommend the empanadillas, very small pastry turnovers filled with butternut squash, feta & raisin
Cafe Roya, Beeston. This is a dedicated vegetarian and vegan restaurant, cooking delicious and beautiful food. The menu is very seasonal, I particularly enjoyed Gado gado; an Indonesian peanut curry that was so delicately spiced and beautiful to look at
The Embankment, Trent Bridge, Nottingham. First of all the building is amazing! And the food is pretty decent too. There is a good range of veggie options and the chef understands that not all cheeses are veggie friendly. I recently enjoyed a tasty Pizza. The base was really thin and crispy and complimented the toppings. It was also generously portioned.
Baresca, Byard Lane, Nottingham. This eatery opened last year as a tapas bar and market cafe. Their veggie breakfast is pretty special; catalan bread, spicy scrambled eggs and lovely soya cappuccino. The options on their evening menu is impressive too; chargrilled asparagus & fried duck egg with chilli, parmesan & almonds is delicious and well balanced
Handmade burger Co, Victoria Centre. This is a great place for veggie and vegan burgers, there’s 7 varieties on the menu. The portion sizes are perfect, not too big or small but the price will mount up if you load your burger with extras. And of all the places I’ve eaten Handmade serves the best rosemary chips
The Peacock Hotel on Mansfield Road, Nottingham is currently closed for refurbishment, but when it opens on 5th September the menu will be 100% vegan. I think a visit is in order to see if it makes it in to the ‘Top 5’!
So which Nottingham restaurant or cafe would be in your veggie top 5?
