I’ma go ahead and add @frankienbennys to the list of “places I never thought I’d be able to eat but now have a wealth of options in” 😍 (Invite)
When @frankienbennys say that they’re adding a vegan offering to their menu, they ain’t messing.
@jolley_chris and I feasted on:
🍕 Kansas City BBQ – Vegan chicken strips, BBQ sauce, vegan mozzarella, red onions & chives £10.49 – This used to be my fave pizza! Loved the BBQ sauce and although the chicken chunks did have a slight soy taste, the texture was great & they worked. The dough was very thin which initially I didn’t like but it grew on me. Red onions – top addition 👌🏼
🍝 I Ain’t No Chicken Parmigiana – Crispy vegan schnitzel topped with Neapolitan tomato sauce, vegan mozzarella, served with spaghetti & veggies £13.29 – Dish of the day! The schnitzel was breaded perfectly. The sauce & cheese on top were delicious. The spag was nice but could’ve used a bit more punchy flavour
🍔 Viva La Vegan 1/4 pounder with lettuce, tomato, red onions, gherkins & vegan burger sauce, served with chips £10.49 – I wasn’t expecting to love this but I enjoyed it! The patty was meaty (similar to Moving Mountains) and that burger sauce 🤤 The sauce drowned the burger a bit but it was so nice I made my peace with it
🧀 Mac No Cheese – Creamy cauliflower sauce with butternut squash, pasta, a crispy herb crumb & rocket £9.79 – Not particularly cheesy but it was creamy. Perhaps a bit expensive but it was alright
🌭 Not Dog with American style sausage, fried onions & ketchup £7.79 – The only dish I didn’t like! Sausage flavour didn’t do it for me
🌱 Chickenless nuggets (rice protein & chia), tumbled in spicy vegan sriracha mayo, served w/ vegan mayo £6.29 – Lovely spice & perfect with that incredible mayo
🍫 Chocolate & Raspberry lava cake – Absolutely delicious!
Look, no one’s walking into Frankie & Benny’s expecting Michelin star food but for what it is, I was impressed! It felt like effort had gone into creating unique dishes! The prices are fair and I’d go again! 👏🏼 It’s great to see a restaurant of this size introducing vegan options!
The lovely team were kind enough to invite me and gave me this food on a complimentary basis. No payment was received and all opinions, as always, are honest and my own.
