Lele’s – Clapton

Get ya self a vegan breakfast that’s unbe-lele-viably good 😍🥞 {complimentary}

You guys always ask for vegan brekkie options in London, well this is a great one! 👏🏼 Last time I visited @leles_london in Clapton, I said that there was room for improvement and gave some feedback to her. This time, Valentina said that she‘d taken the notes on board and BOY OH BOY, could you tell. The food was incredibly good 👏🏼  It makes me so happy when restaurants take their customers’ feedback on board and use it to change their offering! That’s the sign of a company which care about what their customers want.
Here’s what we tucked into and what we thought:
🌱Buckwheat pancakes topped w/ maple syrup, coconut yoghurt, fresh strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, grapes, chopped banana, kiwi, toasted almond flakes & sunflower seeds
💰 £8.75
✏️ The pancakes themselves are lovely, a little thick but not dry at any point because of all of the generous toppings! The seeds & toasted almonds add a beautiful crunch, the fruit and maple syrup add a nice touch of sweetness. The yoghurt is delicious and the little drizzle of chocolate is the perfect finishing touch. Great dish!
❓ Order Again? Yes

🌱Lele’s Full English w/ two sausages, scrambled tofu, pan fried garlic mushrooms, roasted rosemary potatoes, homemade baked beans w/ red peppers, roasted oregano tomatoes, kale & sourdough toast .
💰 £10.50
✏️ This is epic. Last time I suggested the addition of potatoes (because potatoes for breakfast is the dream and I won’t hear anything different 😆). They were cooked perfectly and added a nice bit of substance to the dish. The beans were flavoured well and were nice and chunky. The tofu scramble was delicious, mainly because of that dreamy spring onion 🤤 The sausages are great and the mushrooms were juicy but I’d love an even stronger garlic flavour. The tomato was cooked well too. My only other suggestions would be that I don’t think you need the toast and that the kale could be chopped more finely
