Beatroot is probably one of the first vegetarian places I heard of when I first became vegan, but can you believe in all this time I have never been there?
There are seats to sit down inside and out but all the food is served in takeaway containers (from sustainable sources). You pick a size, small, medium or large and then choose what you want in it.
I went for a medium (£5.20), but I think a small would be been just right. Trust me, the man behind the counter packs it in. Most of the hot and cold dishes are vegan (with lots of wheat free options) and ALL the cakes are vegan – music to my ears.
I went for all the hot dishes which were tofu stir fry, chickpea masala curry, butterbean chilli, shepherds pie, veggie sausage rolls, potatoes and broccolli. I was soooo full right I didn’t have room for the bakewell slice (£1.80)!
It’s bit hard trying to dechiper all the individual dishes as they all get mushed together but the tofu was good, nice and firm, and I’d definitely have the chilli and the shepherds pie again. Oh and the puff pastry sausage rolls were tasty too. I’m all about the comfort foods at the moment so the salads didn’t even get a look in but that gives me a good excuse to go back and try them out.
