Hello everyone! I am now back from my studio work (see my most recent art blog post for what I’m up to now) and so will hopefully post more frequently again.
It was my 24th birthday on the 19th (eek!), and so I have some nice vegan-treat-related things to type about 🙂
Recently, it has been big news that Wagamama has a new vegan menu, and so we went for a late night meal to check it out. It turned out that all the vegan items, except one, had actually been on their old menu all along, but were hidden within everything else. I’m glad they have made a separate vegan menu now, because apparently it has been extremely popular! The food was amazing; it was my first time ever eating at Wagamama and it lived up to the hype: we treated ourselves to some prosecco and three courses (although we shared the dessert cause we were so full!)
Apologies for the horrible-quality photos… We had vegetable dumplings with a delicious dip, and spicy cauliflower florettes for starter, then pad thai and ramen noodles for mains, with passion fruit sorbet afterwards to cleanse our palettes (ooh posh!)
Also, a lovely present I got, which is relevant to this blog, is an absolutely gorgeous bag from Thamon. Now I’m not often fussed about things like handbags, but just look at this one!! Thamon are a small company from Camden who make bags, wallets and notebooks from vegan ‘leather’ made from sustainable leaves. This results in unique items in various colours which have lovely subtle leaf patterns all over:
Here is their website so you too can drool over their stuff: https://www.thamon.co.uk/
Lastly (from my birthday day itself) I want to mention Hotel Chocolat again. The nice thing about having a birthday in October is that you get to benefit from fun spooky Halloween items 😀 In this case, Jacob picked up a ‘Wingston The Bat’ chocolate box… as you do… which is full of vegan dark chocolate shapes:
I was also very amused by this packaging, which reflects my feelings pretty accurately:
The day after, I met up with my dad in Bristol, where we had a mosy around, visited an art exhibition, drank chai lattes and had a lovely curry from a Caribbean food stall in St Nicholas Market, to where I had never been before. There were a lot of vegan options around, and I even saw somewhere with vegan Christmas puds 🙂
Lastly, one honourable mention: Pudology now does millionaires shortbread puddings. Perhaps that should be in capitals… PUDOLOGY NOW DOES MILLIONAIRES SHORTBREAD PUDDINGS!!!
Until next time, peeps 🙂
