A tasty treat with no meat @FoodForFriends

Sometimes we all need a midweek treat and so we took ourselves off to Food for Friends to see what was new on the menu.

Food for Friends regularly change their menu as they use fresh, seasonal ingredients and it is completely vegetarian too. I remember the first time I went to a veggie restaurant I was a bit wary, wondering if I would find anything tempting without meat - how foolish I was! That was a while ago so now I know that there is so much more on offer then just nut roast or lentil soup.

Although before I talk about the food I have to mention the drink. We had more or less decided what we wanted but then our lovely waitress said the cocktail of the day was Passion fruit Mojito which we just had to try - what a fruity treat!

Passionfruit Mojito - cheers!
Some people think that vegetarian is the lighter option and I'm sure sometimes that's true but I can tell you that after three courses we were well and truly stuffed! I opted for the Falafel to start which not only looked pretty but it was a generous portion. After that I decided to go for the curry and again not only did it look colourful, it tasted great with a rich variety of flavours.

We decided to be cheeky and squeeze in a pudding to round off the meal. There were quite a few exotic sounding options including Avocado ice-cream and something with black sesame but by this point in the evening we were not feeling terribly adventurous so we decided to play it safe with a chocolate torte & we were not disappointed.

As well as being vegetarian Food for Friends cater for a variety of diets including vegan and gluten-free, both of these are clearly marked on the menu but if you have other requirements let them know as they are keen to cater for all. This makes the restaurant a great choice for groups as there will be dishes to suit everyone, with no-one being made to feel awkward.

The restaurant's name is an apt one as while the food is gourmet the atmosphere is relaxed, making it a great place to catch-up with friends while enjoying delicious dishes. Plus the location (middle of The Lanes) means it's perfect for people-watching.
