SquareMeal Review of
With the rising popularity of meat-free diets, it’s no surprise that plant-based restaurant Tibits has launched a second London site in Bankside. The build-your-own concept is spot on for the location, where busy office workers can fill a container with an array of fresh, colourful vegetarian and vegan fare to take away, while diners with a bit more time can enjoy drinks or a sit-down meal in the convivial surrounds. After a lap of the signature buffet station, we filled our plates with a variety of hot and cold dishes, including a creamy paneer curry, vegan sausage roll and a healthy dollop of tangy guacamole. Dessert came in the form of a tooth-achingly sweet, vegan sticky toffee pudding. When it comes to paying, however, Tibits' appeal and popularity can actually work against it. Long queues, during which time any hot food rapidly cools, and weight-based pricing mean it’s easy to rack up a sizeable bill for lukewarm food. But, when the food is this wholesome and tasty, we’d say it’s worth the wait, and the weight.
