I came here with my (non-vegan) boyfriend on a Sunday afternoon searching for the renowned Tofush and Chips. When we arrived the person at the bar who took our order said that they did not have the full menu today and therefore were not offering the Tofush and Chips, as well as that and that. When we asked once again what they had and what was vegan, the waitstaff (literally) rolled his eyes at us. We then left but came back after realizing we didn't have much other choice.
Another, much friendlier, waiter took our order. Unfortunately they did not have any room for us inside (I don't think the upstairs dining room was open) so we had to sit outside in the cold. I ordered the burger and I have to say, I was quite disappointed. It was dry and tasteless. The chips were however, really tasty. My boyfriend tried the (non-vegan) crepês and found it tasty.
But since we did came there for the Tofush and Chips, we decided to come back at another day in the hopes of trying it. So we went there again at Tuesday for lunch, we were greeted by the the waiter who earlier rolled his eyes at us. This time he was much friendlier and immediately offered us a seat in the upstairs dining room. The dining room was very cozy, as opposed to the bar, and once there we were greeted by a friendly waitress who took our orders. We both ordered the Tofush and Chips. The food was well prepared but neither of us really liked the taste of the seaweed, but that's just a personal preference. Even though we weren't huge fans of the Tofush, we both thought it was a well thought-through dish and definitely something special.
We also tried the Peanut Butter Mousse for dessert. It was served with rasberry couli, but it was still quite dry. It wasn't very mousse-like, it had more of a peanut butter like consistency.
The food might not have been the best, but it definitely has potential. So I do think I will come back when I return to London.
Tasty chips, cozy diningroom upstairs
