The Swing – West Hampstead

In West London? Here’s a place you need to “swing” by 👀 {press meal}

I love discovering little spots I’ve never heard of before! 👀 is a beauuuutiful veggie restaurant serving up a very vegan-friendly menu 🌱

Here’s what I ate:

🌽 Sticky black corn ribs w/ sweet sesame soy dressing, tomato, picked ginger & togarashi

🔥Korean red cauli w/ spring onions, pink grapefruit, red miso soy dressing
💰 £7.50

🍞Jalapeño cornbread w/ creme fraiche & pepperonata

🌱Beetroot ceviche w/ apple, orange, pickled onion petals, yuzu avocado, mango purée
💰 £6

🥗No salmon poke bowl w/ vermicelli noodles, salted cabbage, sweetcorn, cucumber, edamame, avocado, pickled radish, coriander, sesame, mango passionfruit salsa

🐙No calamari & black pearl w/ black fregola, tomato caper salsa, crispy no calamari, blue cheese dressing, coriander garnish
💰 £8

🍆Miso aubergine w/ sumac yoghurt, orange segments, sesame, spring onions & chives

🌮Bulgogi sweet potato & oyster mushroom tacos w/ yuzu avocado, pickled onions & jalapeños

🥟Seasonal veg gyozas w/ chilli garlic butter sauce & edamame

🌱Chilli garlic edamame

🍄Spiced portobello mushrooms & truffle bean mash

💭I really enjoyed this meal. So much choice and some really well thought out and creative flavour combos. Had a couple of small bits of feedback for the team e.g. didn’t love the grapefruit w/ the Korean cauli but overall I was impressed. The venue is so pretty and prices are reasonable. They’re *so* close to being fully vegan, would love to see them make the leap!

✅ I recommend the tasting menu – 8 dishes, 1 dessert (get the brownie) & house drink – £30pp
