It’s also no secret that I’ve been trying to eat more veggie/vegan and being more conscious of what I’ve been eating and making an effort to eat more sustainable sources of food.
So when I got approached to review the new vegan menu I obviously jumped at the chance.
The vegan menu has a pretty broad range, they even have tapas plates as well as lunch and main plates. I opted for the black bean and butternut squash chilli and Andy went for the avocado brunch.
The chilli had just the right amount of spice in, I hate really spicy food but I love the flavour of spices and the combination was just perfect. The rice was zesty and it all came with a lovely toasted tortilla. The thing I love most about vegan chilli is that the pulses like the black beans that act as a protein substitute fill me up so nicely, something I rarely find with meat nowadays.
Andy opted for the slightly smaller brunch option of avocado brunch. Sourdough topped with guacamole, tomatoes and mango salsa with olive oil and pepper. I normally hate avocado on toast. I think it’s so bland and boring but the way the guacamole was paired with the mango salsa made me absolutely love it. So much so I am ready to go back tomorrow to order that for brunch – it was amazing.
Along with making a conscious effort to think about what I’m putting in my body – cocktails are my downfall. Considering it’s dry January it’s just as well Rev de Cuba are doing low alcohol and low sugar drinks. I got the rose spritz which was lovely and Andy opted for Tommy’s margarita which packed a punch but at least it has less sugar than normal!
We both left feeling fully satisfied and also feeling like our Cuban cravings had been attended to. Even Andy the meat eater fully enjoyed his vegan experience.
Same time tomorrow?
