Best takeaways for Veganuary
Yummy, fresh and healthy vegan food to celebrate Veganuary because, let's face it, we're not going to be doing Dry January during lockdown 3.0!
One of my fave local street food vendors, Bamboo have always served delicious and I mean d-elicious vegan food. It’s all freshly prepared and over lockdown food is available for collection or delivery every weekend (Fri-Sun from 5.30pm). On the menu this weekend is Lebanese shawarma kebabs, coconut tandoori kebab, orange ‘chickn’ cauli wings, sriracha fries and so much more – they even do vegan homemade desserts. Stomach – rumbling much? Plus to celebrate veganuary they’re offering 20% off kerbside collection on order for £20. Hip hip hooray!
Then there’s Pomelo and Rocket who are taking over the Huns Vegan HQ (more on them below) over on Welford Road. This weekend they’re doing a taco take-over so hot tacos filled with refreshing and zingy ingredients like black eyed bean, crispy coconut, lime cauliflower, butternut squash, guacamole – you get where I’m going – right? Mexican flavours with crunchy textures and creamy sauces. You can pre order for collection delivery and even order on the night. Available all this weekend for lunch and dinner. 3 tacos for £10 plus there’s nachos.
Did someone say burger? Well actually, burgers, burgers and more burgers and all vegan. Try the battered ‘vish’ fillet, that comes with homemade tartare sauce, crispy fried seaweed, cheese, lettuce or perhaps the classic burger is more up your vegan street. Think Chick’hun fillet, house garlic mayo, lettuce, pickles. Loaded fries, gravy available too. Back open from the 14 Jan.
Don’t think I’ve forgotten about dessert – plenty of delicious vegan goodies to enjoy via the Vegan Cakery run by ethical vegan Michelle Orme. If you’ve not heard of the the business by now, then where exactly have you been? They’ve been around for quite some time and have won a tonne of awards! Shop online and order everything from banoffee flavour gateau to Chocolate, Peanut and Toffee Flapjack, Lemon and Passion Fruit Bakewell Tart to lemon meringue pies – all 100% vegan. They also offer a hand delivery service. Hurry, slots book up fast but some are still available for Leicester this month.
