Pastaio – Soho

Do not scroll “past-a” this carby goodness 🙅🏼‍♀️🍝 {ad – press sample}

There’s still a lack of vegan pasta in this city so it brings me untold joy to see chefs like @stevieparle bringing fresh, vegan pasta to the streets of London 🥳

My friend @ks_ate_here & I popped down to @pastaiolondon to check it out:

🍝 Spinach agretti w/ crusco chilli & breadcrumbs
💰 £6
🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? Yes. So delicious. The pasta is perfection and the chilli gives the perfect kick
🏆 Fave dish

🍝 Cassarece pasta w/ courgette & courgette flower pesto
💰 £8
🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? Yes. A very close second fave. Really lovely creamy texture and the pasta was spot on

🍝 @symplicity_foods vegan meatballs w/ natal fine pasta & tomato sauce
💰 £14
🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? Yes. I’ve spoken many times about how much I love @frontlinechef’s balls (ooh). They work really well with the pasta but would’ve liked it a little saucier. This is more expensive but also more filling. I know how much work goes into creating the meatballs so it makes sense

🍝 Slow cooked tomato sauce w/ basil & radiatore pasta
💰 £6.50
🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? Yes. Perfect example of simple food done really well. The tomatoes are bursting with flavour and it makes all the difference

🌱 Asparagus with saffron & roasted garlic potato cream
💰 £6.50
🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? Yes. It’s pricey for the size of the dish but that cream is to die for. In terms of texture, it really gave off eggy yolk vibes

🥗 Yorkshire rhubarb, datterini tomatoes, lambs lettuce, black olives & almonds
💰 £7.50
🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? Yes if we’re just talking about taste as it was delish but the price is a tad steep for a side salad
