Comptoir V – Kensal Rise

The rumours are true, @comptoir_v is shrimply the best 🍤⁣ {#ad}

These guys create sexy grub with a focus on natural ingredients and THEY’RE NAILING IT 👏🏼 Here’s what @thebigjolleyvegan & I ate:⁣

🌱⁣Dynamite Shrimp – Tempura battered vegan shrimp tossed in sriracha aioli⁣
✏️ One of the best vegan dishes I’ve had👌🏼 Made from tofu, potato & kelp, texture is brill. Mild heat from the sriracha, sweet chilli flavour⁣
❓Order Again?⁣⁣ Yes⁣

🌱⁣Moroccan Buddha Bowl w/ aubergine zaalock, sautéed spinach, curried chickpeas, spiced sweet potato & caramelised onions, quinoa & pumpkin seeds⁣
✏️This is to die for. Curried chickpeas & aubergine are heavenly!⁣
❓Order Again?⁣⁣ Yes⁣

🌱⁣Southern style battered mushroom ribs, cashew ‘Mac & cheese’, steamed garlic kale and a herbed carrot & squash purée ⁣
✏️So much yes. The glaze took me back to my rib days. Mushrooms as a meat sub are my fave, texture is perfect. Kale beaut, mac was creamy & moreish but would’ve liked even cheesier⁣
❓Order Again?⁣⁣ Yes⁣

🌱⁣It’s No Jerk – Baked 3 bean jerk patty, vegan cheese, island jerk mayo & BBQ sauce ⁣
✏️Patty holds together well but it‘s still messy. Love the Moroccan flavours, cheese melts well & has nice flavour. Don’t normally love a bean burg but enjoyed this⁣
❓Order Again?⁣⁣ Yes⁣

🌱⁣Crispy coated jackfruit nuggets w/ a garlic spiced glaze⁣
✏️ Batter is amazing – light but crisp. Just the right amount of sauce, flavour not too sharp, jackfruit not overly juicy – made it more realistically meaty⁣
❓Order Again?⁣⁣ Yes⁣

🌱⁣Moroccan ‘Ghife’ bread⁣
✏️ This is insane. Like a light, flaky croissant!⁣
❓Order Again?⁣⁣ Yes⁣

🌱⁣’No Cheese’ Cheesecake – Special on that day was chocolate⁣
✏️Wow. Delicious! Consistency is perfection. Looks like it’ll be dense but it’s not. Light, creamy, more milk than dark choc⁣
