Trading House – City

But first, coffee ☕️
I’m back in London and the only thing getting me through this jet-lag is a seriously bad ass caffeine hit and a huuuuge vegan breakfast 😴☕️🍽

I was invited to test @tradinghouselondon’s new vegan full English 🇬🇧 I’ve only been here for after work cocktails but it’s a super cute spot in the heart of the city 🌃 It’s amazing to see more and more venues making a conscious effort with their vegan offering and props to these guys for including some creative and substantial vegan items. We have an appetite too, ya know! 🌱

The brekkie comes with vegan black pudding, roast mushrooms, grilled tomato, roast potatoes, scrambled tofu, avocado & beans. Firstly, the roasted mushrooms were beautifully cooked and super juicy but I would’ve loved to see some more flavour in there, I’m looking at you, garlic 🍄 The black pudding was divine – moist and full of flavour. It reminded me of sage stuffing 🤤 The tofu wasn’t seasoned very well and needed much more flavour but this is something that could easily be improved. You can’t really go wrong with avocado & baked beans but they were a welcome addition 🥑 Potatoes for breakfast are always a winner in my eyes and I almost can’t believe I’m saying this, as self professed carb queen, but I think there were a few too many. I would’ve loved to see half the potatoes replaced by toast (update: they now do) & a vegan sausage or two 😍

£8.95 for this meal is great value! With a bit of work, this could be a brilliant vegan option 👏🏼 Side note: We had black coffee as they don’t offer any non dairy milk (update: they’ve now added them). Also, I know this isn’t a vegan restaurant but I felt a little uncomfortable about the stuffed animals on the walls 🤷🏼‍♀️
