Plants by Deliciously Ella – Mayfair

A menu based solely around plants? Unbe-leaf-able 🍃

I decided to pop in and say “aloe” to @deliciouslyella’s new restaurant: Plants. Does what it says on the tin really. No fake meats, just a focus on the wonderful things you can do with leaves and veggies 💁🏼‍♀️🌱

Here’s what I ate & thought (photos are in corresponding order):

🌱 Cauliflower schnitzel with a caper & shallot salsa, kohlrabi slaw
💰 £16

🧀 Cashew and miso Mac & cheese with a sourdough herb crumb
💰 £5

🍄 King oyster mushroom scallops with parsnip purée, carrot jelly & parsnip bacon
💰 £10

🍆 Aubergine with a candied nut roast, pistachio cream, yellow curry sauce
💰 £10.50
🏆 Fave dish

🍝 Spicy summer rigatoni with grilled artichokes and courgettes, tomato fondue
💰 £14

💭Some dishes were really tasty, others missed the mark. All in all the flavours were a bit too subtle. The mac & cheese was tasty but I didn’t notice the miso. The rigatoni didn’t have any spice at all and felt a bit simple. The scallops were lacking in flavour but had a nice texture. I loved the aubergine – the creamy sauce and the crunchy nuts were just divine though it’s pricey for a small dish. The schnitzel was nice too – flavour combos were unique and cauli was cooked perfectly.

💰So, you know rent is gonna be hiiiiigh here. Taking that into consideration, the prices aren’t too bad but compared to other spots in London, it is spenny for what it is. This meal cost £73 in total for two people

🤷🏼‍♀️ Visit again? If I’m in the area again, I might pop in to try the other items on the menu. I can’t emphasise how great it is to see more vegan spots smack bang in central, but I think the menu could be stronger
