Zionly Manna – Peckham

Any Caribbean eatery which refers to itself as a โ€˜Rastarantโ€™ is already a winner in my eyes ๐Ÿ˜ โœŒ๐Ÿผ

@zionlymanna, for me, was the most memorable place I visited on my recent tour of Peckham. From the infectiously passionate owner, Jahson, to the beautifully flavoured food – this venue stole my heart โ™ฅ๏ธ

Tucked away at the back of @ryelanemarket_, itโ€™s not fancy or formal, itโ€™s homely and focuses on the food and the customers โ™ฅ๏ธ As much as I love a vegan burger or a spot of formal dining, this is everything that veganism should be about ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ
Thereโ€™s been a lot of talk recently about how vegan food can be expensive ๐Ÿ’ต Jahson is on a mission to show, through his small, independent business, that vegan food can be simple, inexpensive and delicious! ๐Ÿ˜‹ He whips up different meals every day, using seasonal ingredients and creates dishes bursting with flavour using minimal components ๐Ÿ› At the end of the day, he boxes up the leftovers and sells them at a lower price ๐Ÿ’ฐ

On our visit, we went for the full platter to share which costs ยฃ10 and came with:
๐ŸŒฑ Traditional Caribbean dumplings with a spicy sweet chilli sauce
๐Ÿ Penne with cabbage – The flavours in this were divine!
๐Ÿš Mushy pea rice – totally a thing and totally amazing
๐Ÿ› Spinach & sweetcorn curry
๐Ÿ› Chickpea, pumpkin & ginger curry – These two curries were my favourite dishes ๐Ÿคค .
๐Ÿ› Onion & carrot curry with soy chunks
๐ŸŸ Crinkle cut fries – because they should accompany everything tbh

Highly recommend this place which takes the โ€˜trendyโ€™ out of veganism and strips it right back to its bloody delicious roots ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ“ธ @brixtonfoodfiend
