Smashing Kitchen – London Fields

This is nacho average vegan restaurant 🌱 {complimentary}⁣

Some of you may have guessed from yesterday’s post – today’s review is of @smashingkitchen which I fell in love with recently ♥️⁣

Surrounded by plants and serving up generous portions of healthy, nutritious vegan food which leaves you feeling light but satisfied, this place is such a hidden gem!⁣ The staff are honestly just so so incredibly lovely and they’re working their asses off to produce great vegan food which is natural and healthy. I’ll definitely be going back here!

Here’s what we ate & what we thought: ⁣
🌱Nachos & Guac – Homemade spiced sourdough crisps with fresh guac⁣
✏️Some of the best guac I’ve had! Chunky with just the right amount of zest, salt and sweetness. Chunky, crispy sourdough to load the guac onto. Perfect!⁣
❓Order Again? Yes⁣⁣
🌱Chickpea curry with veggies in a rich, coconut curry sauce, spicy brown rice w/ mushrooms & fennel⁣
✏️I don’t know how to express how much I enjoyed this dish! The flavours were unreal. There was a lovely bit of heat, juicy mushrooms which worked so well, sultanas to add a little sweetness and some well cooked veg. Absolutely loved this!⁣
❓Order Again? Yes⁣⁣
🌱Mediterranean pasta – Light spaghetti dish packed w/ veggies, basil, seeds, olive, garlic & chilli⁣
✏️ This was tasty! Although not as heavy on punchy flavours, it was well seasoned and meant that the taste of the veggies wasn’t masked. Simple but effective!⁣
❓Order Again? Yes⁣⁣

🌱’Make your own’ salad w/ sauerkraut, apple, carrot & caraway seeds, potato salad w/ jalapeños, herbs & mayo, spicy carrot slaw w/ chilli, herbs & spices, pumpkin, sunflower seed & basil pesto and spicy gherkin w/ chilli & dill⁣
✏️Ya can keep ya lettuce. THIS is my kind of salad. Packed with flavour and filling and not boring at any point! The potato salad was creamy but not stodgy with a strong dill flavour. I like dill so didn’t mind that. The slaw was bursting with flavour, the sauerkraut was refreshing and the nutritional yeast gave the pesto a really tangy parmesan flavour!⁣
