222 Veggie Vegan

222 Veggie Vegan is one of London’s best-celebrated vegan restaurants. It opened in 2004 and is the brainchild of Ghanaian-born vegan chef extraordinaire, Ben Asamani. There is a wide choice of dishes and all are made to order using fresh ingredients. We did book but on a busy Saturday night and the three ladies eating before us took for eveeeeeeer to eat their desserts and pay! Luckily, there is a pub just down the road so we nipped in for an aperitif. We were finally seated and decided to go straight for the main course…

All the mains were priced between £9.50 and £12.00. The burger looked good – great looking chips with it! The oyster mushroom and spinach raclette (what is a raclette?!) looked dreamy creamy and the healthy salad looked like it should be singing. My lasagne looked a bit on the small side when it arrived, but it was very tasty and very filling; I practically had to force myself to order dessert…

I’ve never seen so many vegan desserts all on one menu! I went for the Spice Island Pie which is a raw dessert made from cashew and almond cream flavoured with cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg on a crunchy nut and coconut base. Bloody lovely! We shared some lovely organic wine too. The bill was a little over £20 per head. I will certainly go back to try some more of Ben Asamani’s delicious food!
