Don’t you just hate that all vegan food is so bland, tasteless and mundane… 🤷🏼♀️😛
Teeheehee, yes that is indeed the sarcasm klaxon. It amazes me that people still don’t realise how flavoursome, colourful and creative vegan food can be.
I popped down to Rosa’s Thai Cafe in Soho because they decided to go totally veggie for the whole month of January and there were tonnes of vegan options included on the menu too.
I’ve always had a soft spot for Thai food. Growing up in Australia, there was a strong Thai population and my family and I used to venture out every now and again to get involved with a massaman curry or a green thai curry. So, I was excited to see what Rosa’s had to offer.
I ordered the sweetcorn patties with a red curry paste batter, tofu in tamarind sauce, fresh summer rolls with a roasted peanut sauce, stir fried aubergine, drunken noodles (my mouth is still on fire from them) and the tofu massaman curry! I have to say that I really enjoyed all of the dishes!
This is a relatively casual spot in the middle of Soho and as expected, it was busy and had a great atmosphere but the staff took their time and didn’t rush you. They were also super helpful, giving us an extra table for all of our food, ha! Welcome to a night out with Chris and I… 😛
My only issue with this restaurant, and I did question it at the time, is that they don’t allow you to take leftovers home, something we didn’t realise before we ordered. I am very passionate about not wasting food and this did really disappoint me. Because of this, we ended up stuffing as much as we could into our stomachs and left feeling overly full. We never would have ordered as much had we know. Perhaps it was our fault for not checking. Either way, I hope they reconsider this!
