Punk Pasta – Russell Square

London has a new, fully vegan pasta restaurant! 🍝 {press meal}

If “recreating the scene from Lady & The Tramp” has been on your to-do list for a while – it’s your lucky day 🐶

@punkpastauk has arrived on the scene and they’re not just serving tomato pasta – praise the lord 🙏🏻 They’ve been quite creative with the menu and it’s nice to see some more ‘outside of the box’ options 👏🏼

Here’s what I ate:

🍝 Trio coral pasta w/ samphire, wakame seaweed, dill, tarragon, white wine sauce & a wasabi pea dusting
🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? Maybe – I like how unusual it is. Some parts had lots of fishy flavour, others didn’t. Maybe a little more sauce would fix this

🍝 Hemp, spinach & kale pesto & handmade spinach spaghetti topped w/ vegan mozzarella, confit cherry tomatoes & pine nuts
🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? Yes. Nice flavours – solid take on a vegan classic

🍝 Magic mushrooms – wild mushrooms in a white wine sauce w/ parpadelle, a mushroom & turmeric crumble & truffle oil
🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? Yes. I’m a sucker for a rich dish but this wasn’t sickly – creamy, garlicky, the truffle could’ve been stronger and sometimes a tad more sauce was needed but overall I liked it
🏆 Fave dish

🍨 Their dessert range is good. We had the apple & berry crumble which was tasty but needed a bit more “crumble”. They also have passion fruit pannacotta, triple ice cream sundae or a gooey choc brownie
