Omnivore is good for herbivores too!

Posted on 02 / 07 / 2014

As a vegan, I was a little leery about going to a place named Omnivore. But my partner was having one of those strange "I need meat!" moods, and as I'd fed him vegan falafel and cookies for lunch, I thought I'd better give in. We got there and I was extremely nervous, seeing a counter full of salads and not knowing which I could eat, but it turned out that both of the staff on duty were not only fluent in English, they *genuinely* understood what a vegan diet was. It turns out that the information given in the restaurant description is correct - everything in the counter *is* indeed strictly vegetarian, and almost everything is vegan. If I recall correctly, there were two salads I couldn't have because they contained eggs. There is one lacto-vegetarian sandwich (made with feta cheese), and one strictly vegan sandwich. Also meat appears to be both stored and cooked entirely separately from the vegetarian foods.

I opted for the 5 mezze Herbivore plate. I chose lentil rice, a hot spinach/chickpea thing that I've forgotten the name of, butter beans, and an AMAZING pasta salad with mangoes, almonds and cranberries. As I couldn't choose between hummus and baba ghanoush, they let me have a half-portion of each. Everything was delightfully spiced - not with hot spices, simply tasty ones, and most of the food was obviously low fat.

There were also vegan desserts: a baked coconut cake, and a raw vegan/gluten-free chocolate-coconut pie made by a company called Rawsome. Both looked good, but I had the raw pie and it was DELICIOUS. I have posted photos of both my mezze plate and the chocolate-coconut pie.

Really, I don't remember the last time I had such a good meal in a restaurant that wasn't completely vegetarian. Highly recommended.

And my partner, the one who needed meat so badly? He had a tiny kebab skewer of meat, then a big mound of lentil rice, salads, hummus and baba ghanoush. I consider this something of a victory.

Pros: Really delicious mezze and salads., Has vegan and raw vegan desserts too. , On a bus route - the 55 stops outside.
Cons: Serves meat., One big step at the front.
