A foodies guide to celebrating ‘World Vegan Day’

Today is World Vegan Day so we thought we’d share with you an excellent restaurant we tried recently in Bristol, which does tasty, ethically sourced vegan food.

No.1 Harbourside, right by (you guessed it) the harbour in Bristol, is an ideal spot for an afternoon session of people watching. Celebrating local, ethically sourced foods this place was great, affordable and quirky – exactly what we love in a restaurant. The menu is varied and delicious, including a number of vegan, veggie and gluten-free options. The menu is seasonal and constantly changing depending on what ingredients are available from local suppliers.

I went for the healthy and wholesome Vegan Bowl (£7.50) – full of homemade beetroot hummus and dukkah, grilled courgette and sweetcorn chutney, pickled cherry tomatoes and fennel, tabbouleh, crispy chickpeas and grilled flatbreads. It was all delicious; especially the beetroot hummus which was incredible. And I always love tabbouleh, so fresh tasting.  What was amazing was how much of it there was! It was so filling and I didn’t feel guilty at the end.

Other things for vegans on the menu included their soup of the day, a fresh pea kachori in coconut pastry with lentil dhal, citrus pickled red onions, coriander and peanut chutney – who said being vegan meant you had to eat tofu or soya substitutes all the time.

There are many fabulous vegan or vegetarian based restaurants out there, but we’d definitely recommend celebrating World Vegan Day at No.1 Harbourside in Bristol; or, if you can’t get down today the 1st November is the start of World Vegan Month – that’s right – you’ve got a whole month to celebrate and eat delicious vegan food.

If you’d like any more information on any of the restaurants we’ve reviewed, please free feel to contact us.
