It’s no secret that Vegan food is becoming more and more popular. As the number of people eating a plant-based diet rises, restaurants are stepping up to the challenge and a range creating delicious, vegan dishes.
Last night, team Liv Fit were treated to a Vegan Safari around Liverpool’s Albert Dock. We got to try out a number of plant-based dishes from a selection of restaurants, and we’ve got to say that we were very impressed!
The first stop of the night was Peaberry. The Independent Artisan Coffee House and Kitchen prepares all food freshly on site and uses only the best quality ingredients. What’s more, they source their food locally to support other independent businesses in the area. For our Vegan evening, we were served a delicious Sweet Potato and Chickpea Burger on Homemade Brioche Bun, with Scrambled Tofu and Avocado on their Homemade Rye Bread. A huge thumbs up from us!
Next on the agenda was Smuggler’s Cove. The rustic, pirate-themed restaurant/bar is famous for its hearty meals, fabulous cocktails and fantastic ambience. Their vegan offerings certainly did not disappoint. We were treated to a range of delicious dishes which included Crispy Gnocchi with Truffle Mayo, Roast Sweet Potato, Vegetable Ramen and a Sweet and Spicy Pepperpot Stew.
The third stop of the evening was Lunyalita. We were seated in their upstairs area which has amazing views of The Albert Dock. After being greeted with a glass of Sangria on arrival, we tucked into the Vegan food. First up was a huge Vegan Platter which consisted of Marinated Vegetables, Salad, Olives, Homemade Dips and Snacks from their Deli. This was followed by a range of hot dishes including a Spanish Stew, Padron Peppers, Patatas Bravas, Roasted Broccoli and Chickpeas.
Finally, our last spot on the agenda was Maray. The popular restaurant has gained national press for its impressive vegetarian options and dedicating a full back menu to all things plant-based. It’s vegan offerings definitely did not disappoint! We enjoyed a whole host of delicious dishes including King Oyster Mushrooms, Aubergine Shawarma, Torched Broccoli, Disco Cauliflower and Beetroot Bowl to name a few.
All in all it was a lovely evening and we left feeling very full!
