Apothecary – Shoreditch

A vegan menu that will “maki” you very happy 🍣 {press meal}

Sushi, fries and bao – what’s not to love? 🍟 London is deffo delivering on more vegan-friendly small plates venues recently!

@apothecaryeast is a funky, chic venue is styled like an Izakaya, inspired by Tokyo 🇯🇵

I visited for lunch and liked it so much I returned on Sunday for bottomless brunch 🥂

Here’s what we ate:
🍣Roasted pepper dragon w/ yuzu jalapeño salsa, avo, mayo & cucumber
🤷🏼‍♀️Order again? Yes, lovely roll

🍠Grilled sweet potato & spicy tofu sauce
💰£3.80 (or 3 for £10)
🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? No. SP slabs didn’t do it for me but my friend liked it

🌱Grilled cauliflower & black sesame
🤷🏼‍♀️Order again? Yes. Beaut!
🏆 Fave dish

🍣 Avo & cucumber sushi w/ mange tout, chives & teriyaki
🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? No. Too simple, wanted more imagination. Also bit dry

🤷🏼‍♀️Order again? Yes. Lovely!

🍟Fries w/ nori sprinkles & gochujang mayo

🥬Charred gem lettuce & citrus mayo
🤷🏼‍♀️Order again? No. I normally like charred lettuce but the citrus didn’t work for me

🌱Spicy tofu bun w/ jalapeños, pickles & lettuce
🤷🏼‍♀️Order again? No. Felt it was a little simple. Could’ve been more flavoursome / exciting

🌱Spinach salad w/ sesame dressing
🤷🏼‍♀️Order again? Yes although it’s too expensive for what it is. Just a light, tasty, healthy side
