Great vegan place
Posted on 11 / 21 / 2011
Saramago is a great vegan place. It's at the back of the CCA on Sauchiehall Street, and I've only just found out about it! It's a great central location, and the space itself is lovely - very spacious, light and airy, with lots of natural light from a massive skylight - it's almost like being outside.
The employees are really friendly, service is good, and it's child friendly too. It all makes for a really pleasant and relaxed environment.
Regarding the food, it's excellent! It has a large and fairly varied menu - there's a big selection of tapas, soups and lovely deli style sandwiches, and a good selection of mains too. I had a lentil and paprika soup which was lovely, and came with fresh organic bread which was pretty tasty - I don't normally eat much bread but this was so nice I had to have a little bit! I also had artichoke hearts with garlic aoli which were really good too. The boyfy had a pizza which was wonderfully tasty and cooked just right, and our pals had veggie haggis, and a butternut squash salad - both of which were enjoyed. Portion sizes are generous but not massive - just right.
I will definitely become a frequent visitor to Saramago, and would recommend it without hesitation. It's open until 10pm, and there's a bar upstairs too.
Light and airy, Good variety, Pleasant employees
