Pachamama – Shoreditch


Oh mama, I am pacha-nate about brunch 🥞 {complimentary}⁣

@pachamamalondon has introduced some vegan options to their swanky little venue 👀⁣

🌱Vegan mushroom & cheese toastie⁣
✏️The mushrooms work so well in this. They’re cooked to perfection and they’re very meaty. The vegan cheese is good and melts well. It’s a tad gloopy but I didn’t mind that. Loved the bread. However, I wish there was a little more flavour in it. Perhaps making the shrooms a bit smoky would lift it a bit, or adding a sauce?⁣
❓Order Again?⁣⁣ ⁣Yes, w/ changes⁣
🌱⁣Vegan waffle, avocado, mushrooms, tomato & pickled onions⁣
✏️The waffle is so soft & fluffy and quite sweet! The guac on its own was too citrusy for me but once mixed with the rest, it worked well. The pickled onions were the standout for me – gave it a nice hit of vinegar. Loved the mushrooms – v well cooked.I do think it needed some kind of sauce or syrup to tie it together although it wasn’t dry at all. Very generous portion, maybe too much for one person⁣
❓Order Again?⁣⁣ Yes, w/ changes⁣

🌱Caramelised aubergine w/ peanuts & coriander oil⁣
✏️Ab. Solutely. Delicious. I’m becoming more and more of a fan of aub. When it’s done like this, you can’t go wrong. It was sweet, salty, nutty, crunchy, squishy, melt in your mouth goodness. My dish of the day!⁣
❓Order Again?⁣⁣ Yes⁣

🌱Bashed cucumber salad⁣
✏️Too oily for me. I enjoyed the first couple of bites but it was very acidic & vinegary and too sharp to eat a whole bowl of⁣
❓Order Again?⁣⁣ ⁣No⁣

🌱Padron peppers w/ chilli⁣
✏️I’m just not a fan of peppers! I’ve tried and I just can’t bring myself to enjoy them. However, we got these for Chris and he absolutely loved them⁣
❓Order Again?⁣⁣ ⁣No (but Chris would)⁣

I would say that the restaurant needs two more vegan options to make it a vegan brunch destination!⁣
