Streatham Gourmet Takeaway - Vegan Express
Vegan Express opened their first restaurant in Garratt Lane, Tooting in 2016, and have a great reputation for Head Chef Charles Diallo’s freshly plant-based food. So our ravenous reviewers were looking forward to trying their takeaway kitchen in SW16, which opened in January.
Their verdict? “It depends what you order; some dishes were incredible, some less than stellar. We ordered via Just Eat at 6.30pm on a Saturday, and food arrived by 7.15pm, piping hot. We chose two sharing platters between 3 - the Deli Board (£18) and Taco Platter (£16). The Deli Board is superb including seitan, tofu and BBQ tempeh that even a serious carnivore would love. The Taco Platter, however, was an insubstantial box of seasoned taco chips and dips, the salsas were nice but a heavy dose of salt in the guacamole meant we left most of it.
But desserts are amazing! Cloudberry and Baobab Cheesecake (£8.50) was creamy with a perfect texture, while the Orange and Chocolate Torte (£6) could have been from a 5-star restaurant. We will be ordering again to try other dishes and will definitely be plumping for pudding!”
