We have continued our exploration of Korean food with a bulgogi tofu recipe this week, which you will find at the end of this post along with a video. I went a little bit crazy and prepared a little bit of a Korean feast for the two of us, which was a lot of fun to make!
This week we’re taking a look at a couple of vegan burgers from Pomodoro e Basilico. We found them at the Brighton Viva Vegan Festival and decided to nominate them as our lunch for the day, so they had big shoes to fill (previous vegan festival lunches have included Jake’s Vegan Steaks and Cafe SoVegan). Sadly, they found the shoes a little too big, as we will explain.
I’m currently learning Korean, so we’ve been getting stuck in to some tasty Korean food too – and doenjang jjigae (된장찌개) had to be on the list. Doenjang is soy bean paste, which has a range of delicious uses. Jjigae is a stew, so when you put them together, doenjang jjigae is a soy bean paste stew.
It’s time for another Wednesday review, and this time we headed for The Breakfast Club in Islington (not to be confused with The Breakfast Club in St Albans, which we have talked about previously).
Given that it had the same name as one of our favourite venues of all time, there was much excitement to try this cheery little cafe/restaurant. And it certainly is cheery, with a bright yellow facade and eclectic decor which includes lots of happy photos of customers.
Our new recipe this week is the fabulous naan burger, a dish we dreamt up whilst possibly under the strong influence of one two many curries. This is what happens when you try to combine an Indian dish with a burger, and, well, it’s pretty epic.
It’s another trip to the Lady Luck, and our favourite vegan/veggie haunt didn’t disappoint with another new special to try. Part of the fun is always finding out what is going to be on the blackboards, and this time it was a butternut squash and falafel burger.
Garlic bread soup – it’s the future. We’ve tasted it.
This soup came about when we were thinking to ourselves about things we liked. Soup is obviously one of them, as you can no doubt tell from our blog. Garlic bread is also pretty high on the list. But can you combine the two?
Last week we were lucky enough to be invited to eat at Inamo in Covent Garden with a £30 voucher. While we did end up spending double that without even trying – budget diners may want to take note – it was an excellent meal and a fabulous experience overall.
We know you’re dying to know what was in our VIP goody bags at Brighton Viva! Vegan Festival, so here we are with the reveal! It was such a great event that there was too much to cover in just our event post, and so we set aside this week’s video post to let you know all about the products we got our hands on.
So, this is what’s in it. It’s a soya burger with BBQ sauce, vegan cheese and onion rings, served on a homemade white roll with chips. It costs £9.95 and is vegan, but not gluten-free.
