Chopstix is the perfect spot for some fast and simple pan-Asian meals. Think Subway but with pan-Asian dishes. It’s quick and tasty. You can make your own little box noodle full of your favourite flavours and ingredients. It’s perfect for when you are in a rush and need something quick to fill you up.

The offer two different vegan base dishes. Their noodles contains a healthy amount of veggies and their boiled rice is great for pairing with their toppings.

The bases can be topped with Pumpkin Katsu curry. Its crunchy and sweet. The curry is thick and full of flavour. It pairs very well with the bases and adds amazing texture.

Mooshies is one of our favourite plant-based spots in London. It is a small burger bar located in Shoreditch with a menu designed for lovers of fast food. It’s a quick walk from the Shoreditch Box Park and Aldgate Underground Station. The area is absolutely lively with colourful graffiti and market stalls with unique items and artistic products. We visited during an autumn day after looking at their website and social media. We arrived much earlier than their opening time so we strolled around Shoreditch. It was a really pleasant walk. We looked at the graffiti on the walls and walked into the small stalls and shops with interesting items.

With a rustic seating style and urban wall paintings, it is a really fun ambience. It is a fantastic spot to take your friends for a catch-up. The staff are very friendly and approachable. The rustic seating arrangement and urban decor create a stylish and trendy environment. Mooshies has a consistent and unique style across their website, menus and even their wallpaper.

Burger and fries are never complete without a satisfying milkshake on the side. Mooshies offers 3 different variations of milkshakes and offers indulgent desserts if you have room for more. Their items are innovated to replicate the taste of non-vegan foods with interesting flavour combinations.

One of our favourite items on the menu is their magic mushroom bites. If you have a craving for fried chicken, this is such a satisfying alternative. It’s crispy and tender on the inside. It’s also packed with delicious flavor. It’s a perfect balance of spices and salts that combine together to create a taste so similar to fried chicken.

Their salted caramel cheesecake is so indulgent and packed with deep chocolate flavours. It’s so rich and balanced with the texture of the vegan cheesecake topping and the crushed biscuit base. The flavours all work together in fantastic harmony to create an amazing experience. If you are craving chocolate, this dessert is perfect to satisfy that craving.

We gave Mooshies 5 stars for the taste. The items are almost perfect replication of non-vegan items with great flavours and innovative ingredients. Mooshies has created a great texture combination with all their items.

For the variety of options and flavours they offer, we have to give them a 5 star. Their entire menu is vegan with options to add ingredients to match your particular preference. They have a variety of different burgers featuring varying main ingredients to create different flavours and texture.

They are so friendly to their customers.

 

Greggs is a bakery located in so many different locations. When their vegan sausage roll was introduced, it rose to popularity so fast causing a bit of a storm. It ran out of stock in so many different locations. Greggs features pastries and sweet baked items that are perfect for a small snack or a small lunch that is filling and delicious. Greggs is located in so many place that it is so convenient to quickly grab something to go. They also serve lots of hot drinks making it perfect for a midday snack.

On trying the vegan sausage roll, I was concerned it was the meat version. It tastes almost identical to the meat version. The roll is covered in crumbly pastry that is layered and delicious. The filling has the same texture and flavour as a meat sausage. It is fulfilling and perfect for a small lunch when you are in a hurry. It tastes fantastic and worth its price.

We decided to give Heavenly Desserts a chance on a summer day. After having some lunch at the Westfield food court, we walked across the road to the Heavenly Desserts located within the Olympic Park. We were seeking a post-meal sweet treat and we were hoping to find a little selection of vegan desserts to satisfy our cravings. There was a short queue but we were seated quickly. We were sat in a booth observing the elegance of the interior design. With marble tables and plush chairs, it created such a luxurious atmosphere. The waiter brought us our menu and we requested a vegan menu. Our waiter came back with another menu that was identical to the other menu. We were not expecting to see such a large selection of things. We sat together admiring the interior and discussing our options because there were so many things we could choose from. To see such a large and extensive selection of different desserts with different variations of flavours was such a pleasant surprise. It’s a perfect spot for any occasion. It’s well lit with warm lighting making it a wonderful spot for taking pictures during birthdays or anniversaries. The decor inside is so cohesive and simple yet so impactful. It ties the whole atmosphere together incredibly well.

After getting seated, we deliberated on what we were going to order. There were so many different options available with different variations and flavourings. We were so indecisive because all the options looked scrumptious and since there were so many different variations of sundaes and brownies, we found it difficult to chose just one dessert.

We chose the “Lotus Biscoff Sundae”. The scoops of vanilla ice cream were served inside a glass with Biscoff sauce drizzled on top with crumbled Biscoff biscuits sprinkled all over. The different textures create an interesting experience. The flavour of the Biscoff pairs with the vanilla ice cream so well. It didn’t just taste delicious, it also looked intricate and luxurious. The gorgeous hint of cinnamon from the Biscoff added such a great dimension to the dessert. It has become one of our favourite desserts because it’s so rich with flavour and textures.

Since we first went to Heavenly Desserts, we have been back a few times. It’s such a great spot to go to right after lunch or after a long day of shopping at the Westfield Shopping Centre. The staff has been always been very friendly and helpful during all of our visits. When we were confused between two options, they would offer their opinions on what was the better option. If they didn’t have a particular dessert available, they will point us to a different dessert with a similar composition to the one we chose. They are so welcoming.

On another visit to Heavenly Desserts, we discovered the “Belgian Chocolate Raspberry Torte”. We were craving something with chocolate so we picked this option. Like the Lotus Biscoff Sundae, this was also rich in flavour. The flavour of the chocolate was a lot more decadent than the sort of chocolate you can buy at supermarkets. It was full of deep chocolate flavour which was not quite the taste of dark chocolate but it wasn’t sweet like milk chocolate either. It was perfectly balanced in the middle. The torte was smooth and creamy. The tart flavour of the raspberries combines with the chocolate to create a really flavourful taste. It was the perfect chocolate to satisfy our cravings.

If you are not a fan of Biscoff, their “Cookies & Cream” is a great variation. Scoops of vanilla ice cream is topped with crumbled oreos and layered together perfectly. The cookies and cream flavour is such a classic flavour and this particular sundae gets it perfect. T he crunchiness of the cookies add a great texture to the softness of the ice cream. The chocolate flavour within the sundae is more muted but adds a great dimension to the flavour of the vanilla. If you are craving a cookies and cream milkshake, this is a perfect option.

We picked the “I Might As Well” on a visit during the autumn period when the weather was becoming colder. Because of the colder weather, we were craving something warm. We wanted to give their vegan custard a try. The “I Might As Well” was a perfect choice during the cold weather. The brownies were fudgy and warm which was balanced with the coldness of the custard. It was really warming and rich with flavour. The caramel in the brownies adds an interesting flavour to the chocolate flavour. The custard also adds an amazing moistness to the brownies deepens the flavour deliciously. It is perfect for a cold day.

Heavenly Desserts pricing is comparable to the other dessert spots. The pricing is relatively reasonable for what you are offered. It is definitely not the cheapest option available but it is an affordable option for when you want a sweet treat. Compared to other dessert spots, Heavenly Desserts offers such a great experience and provides a variety of different options for vegans.

In conclusion, Heavenly Desserts has become one of our favourite places for desserts. Vegan dessert options are hard to find in restaurants and dessert spots because so many desserts contain non-vegan ingredients. Heavenly Desserts, however, offered a whole menu full of vegan and gluten-free options. If you have a sweet tooth and want to treat yourself or celebrated an occasion, this is such a wonderful staff.

Busaba is a Thai restaurant. They are located at different locations within London. We have been to the restaurant located at Stratford and at the O2 Arena. The atmosphere and the decorations are so cultural and cozy. Their seatings are perfect for all kinds of occasions. While it is communal, the seats are so far apart that you can have a private conversation while eating. The warm lighting and dark decorations are consistent within all their locations. It’s perfect for the winter season as the flavour of the dishes warms you right up after a cold day.

One of our favourite dishes is “Sriracha Ho Fun Noodles”. The dish contains wok-fried red peppers, mushrooms and baby spinach. The vegetables are so crunchy and full of the sriracha flavour. It is delicious and heartwarming to eat. It is also an incredibly satiating meal that is perfect for colder weather. The heat of the sriracha and all the flavours packs a spicy punch. It is seasoned on a wonderful balance that none of the flavours are overpowering.

A less spicy option is their “Pad Thai jay”. This noodle is also wok-fried and contains broccoli, courgette, green beans, and mushrooms. While it is not as spicy, it still incredibly rich in flavour. The slight sourness of the lemon is balanced with the biting flavour of the ginger. The flavours all combined tastes divine. The texture is balanced with the crunchiness of the peanuts and the vegetables and the softness of noodles. The tofu adds a meaty texture.
