M Raw – Victoria

@mrestaurantshas created M Raw, a fully veggie, gluten free restaurant, to ensure us vegans don’t get a ‘raw’ deal 🌱{#ad}⁣

I popped down with the wonderful @eastlondonfoodiegirl. Here’s what we thought:⁣

🌱⁣⁣Pulse Burger w/ sweet potato chips & herb vegan mayo⁣
✏️ Veggie patties aren’t normally my thing – I’ve been let down so many times, but this one did work. It was a little dry in places (mainly due to the bun) but overall it was good. Tomato was a great addition, adding lots of juiciness & sweetness. Mayo was amazing!⁣
❓Order Again?⁣⁣ Yes⁣

🌱⁣⁣Courgette Spaghettini w/ roasted veg, basil pesto & pine nuts⁣
✏️ My fave dish. Loved the addition of pine nuts. Tomato sauce was lovely – quite sweet. Personally, would’ve liked a bit of heat too⁣
❓Order Again?⁣⁣ Yes⁣

🌱⁣⁣Roasted aubergine w/ a miso glaze, dashi & sesame⁣
✏️Too sweet for my liking – was expecting umami flavour. I enjoyed the shrooms but the coriander was a little too strong ⁣
❓Order Again?⁣⁣ No⁣

🌱⁣⁣Buckwheat risotto w/ cauliflower, summer truffle & mushrooms⁣
✏️ I’m a big truffle fan so liked that this flavour was strong. The shrooms were delicious – very meaty. However, the dish did get a bit ‘samey’. The veggie version had truffle cream and I think they need to create a vegan version for this to complete the dish⁣
❓Order Again?⁣⁣ Yes⁣

🌱⁣⁣Pea & broad bean polenta w/ green jalapeño, lemon and mint & marjoram⁣
✏️Not normally a polenta fan but I quite liked this. There was a nice balance of flavours & textures. It was quite vinegary in parts but I didn’t mind. Onions were the stand out.⁣
❓Order Again?⁣⁣ Yes⁣
Overall, the meal was nice and I liked that it was a vegetable based, health focused menu but it felt a little like hotel food. I’d love to see these guys push the boundaries and come up with more creative, unusual dishes.⁣
