I've wanted to write this post for ages.
It's by no means complete but I thought I'd share with you what I have so far! For me the the most challenging part of being Vegan is eating out. It's those times you're out with friends and everyone spontaneously wants to grab a 'cheeky Nando's' or pop in for a Katsu Curry at Wagas's and you have a mini panic and think 'What on earth am I gonna eat?'
Even worse still is when you're sitting there scouring the menu trying to decipher what you can and can't have, feeling like a complete nuisance whilst asking the waitress for 'the Spaghetti Bolognese with NO meat NO cheese, oh and instead of the side of garlic bread could I grab a side salad with no dressing please..?'. All the while you're friends shuffle around feeling uncomfortable.
Yup I've been there but hopefully with a few of my recommendations I can save you a whole lot of awkwardness.
|Veggie Wrap (MAKE SURE YOU SAY NO YOGHURT MAYO)!!!! and chips with a side of Avo|
Houmous with Peri Peri Drizzle and Pitta bread
Spicy Mixed Olives
Peri Peri nuts
Veggie Pitta(NO MAYO/CHEESE)

Portobello Mushroom and Halloumi(WITHOUT THE HALLOUMI)

Did you know lots of restaurants have a special book that tells you what is Vegan, Gluten Free, Kosher, Halal all sorts!
I ALWAYS RECOMMEND LETTING YOUR SERVER KNOW THAT YOU ARE VEGAN WHEN PLACING YOUR ORDER!!!

|Yasai Yaki Soba with Udon Noodles|
I can't remember the name of this but it was the veggie stew of the day! I wasn't a huge of it flavour-wise, but I love that they packed it with lots of crunchy veg! I'd definitely recommend the Pod Gym Box though full of flavour and everything seemed so fresh!
