Haven’t been to Indian Veg yet? Tikka long, hard look at yourself 🥘
Some people long to hear those three little words 🥰…but for me it’s all about these four beaut words: All you can eat 🤤 Luckily @thebigjolleyvegan feels the same way 😜
🍛 Firstly, as most of you probs already know, apart from the obvious dishes with meat, yoghurt, cream, paneer etc., lots of Indian cuisine is naturally vegan. They’ve been cooking like this for centuries! You just need to look out for that pesky ghee 👀
Onto the venue – If you’re looking for great atmosphere & fancy food, Indian Veg isn’t for you 🙅🏼♀️ This is a “no frills” joint 🤤 It’s not buzzing with atmosphere and the venue is pretty basic (also covered from head to toe with posters boasting the health benefits of a vegetarian lifestyle), but the food is tasty, cheap and they’re doing great things for the community🍴
📦 The owners offer free food to homeless people at any time of day. While we were there, we saw a couple of plates being given away and I just think this is the kindness we can all learn from 👏🏼
💰 These guys used to be known as the place to go for cheap eats in London. While it’s still reasonable for the amount of food you get, prices have risen and it’s now a little steeper than the likes of the Drummond Street squad.
Here’s what we thought:
🌱All you can eat Indian buffet with lots of options including a mixed veg curry, aloo peas, chana dal, pakoras etc.
✏️Full of flavour, nice variety, some mild, others quite spicy. Hearty, comforting food. A little oily in parts but delicious nonetheless. They also do a delicious vegan mango lassi!
