SquareMeal Review of
222 Veggie Vegan
Despite its stark location on an ugly stretch of the North End Road, this unassuming spot survives thanks to the quality of its exclusively vegan offering. Back-to-basic, plain-wood interiors might
lack character, but the meat-free menu does more than enough to pull in the local veggie crowd. Start with something raw (fresh asparagus with olive oil) or something cooked (sautéed artichoke
hearts) before trying one of the cheekily reinvented mains such as a veggie-mince burger, seitan stroganoff or a vegan roast with potato and parsnip mash. To finish, tofu cheesecake might be a
step too far, so play it safe with apple crumble or pancakes and chocolate sauce. As you’d expect, there are plenty of smoothies and fruit juices to drink, as well as a couple of lagers and a
brace of wines.
