I think I’m about 2 months behind in my posts… sorry…
There’s going to be a lot of cooommmmpetition on the Walworth Road with this new cafe/restaurant (I say in a high pitch voice).
Just before I went to Hong Kong I saw this little corner finally being taken over which has been abandoned for years. It was once a fast food restaurant, then turned into a Nigerian restaurant and now into this new café (that turns into a bar at night). I think I have to see this change over happen at some point.
I missed its opening in December because I kept seeing closed shutters, so I have no idea when it opened… Why do cafés and restaurants open towards the end of the year?!
I woke up early one Sunday morning (it was the day after the skirt-making workshop), I couldn’t sleep, so went out Pokémon hunting in Burgess Park. ^_^ Spent a good time there and didn’t realise part of the lake’s path was closed off… ¬_¬” Irritating.
As I was walking back, I thought this was a good chance for me to try out Louie Louie. Think I got there just in time for opening time!
Interesting choice of table plants. ^_^ My favourite! (I have cacti in my office).
My interest of light bulbs never ends.
Ordered a flat white coffee with soya milk which unfortunately costs an extra 0.50 pence. I’ve read other people’s reviews on that, and yes, it is expensive for a different milk. Plus I was expecting a slightly larger glass/cup for it. 😦
There was a lot of choice on the Weekend Brunch menu compared to its normal brekkie menu! But I thought I’ll go vegan for that morning. Just to be on the healthy side… Plus introduce different food items on this blog. I can’t eat meat all the time!
Kitchen opened at 9.30am that morning so had to wait for a bit for the food…
I chose this very hearty looking chickpea stew with avocados and mushrooms which came with a leafy salad and toast. It’s for two people, but I did a long walk, so I think I was capable of eating most of it… I even ordered the vegan banana bread with almond butter… Maybe I shouldn’t have ordered that. Too much food. ¬_¬”” (I think other people were curious at my picture taking… LOL! Well, it is a lot of food, and I was on a food mission.).
This is the type of food Miss Vegan would bring into work. Maybe I should learn how to make this stuff…. It was amazing! A little spicy but the avocodo cooled my mouth from the spiciness. The toast went well with it.
Not sure about this salad presentation, but I like the taste of it.
I finally had this banana bread. Miss Vegan tried to make this one day for her son, but it ended like a vegan banana cake… it still tasted great! The almond butter was a bit sticky for my liking, but I found it sweet enough and sticky enough. I think vegans will love this place.
Total cost came to £24.41 which includes service charge. It is expensive, but my meal was kind of for two people, so in fact I would have paid around £12 if I was with another person (trying to justify the pricing).
I was full after eating, but not bloated like after eating lots of meat and chips…
Definitely would go again! But only on a very random occasion. ^_^
At night this place changes into a bar too… Heheheh
My geeky rating: 4.9/5 (just because of the tiny coffee!)
– Friendly service
– Good atmosphere
– Suitable for vegans, vegetarians and meat eaters
– A little expensive (especially for the tiny coffee I had 😦 )
– Took a bit long for the food – but that was expected
