London with an almost-Veggie 14 year old
I'm coming to London in April with my sister and 14 year old niece who is mostly a vegetarian. We don't want to spend a lot of money (is that possible?) We wanted to check out some pub food. Is there such a thing as vegetarian pub food? Also we want to do afternoon tea somewhere. Any thoughts on a place that's not too fancy, but a 14 year old would think was fun?
Our current list is:
Food for Thought
Blah Blah Blah
Joe's Restaurant Bar
Books for Cooks
plus various Chinatown places
Any comments on any of these places?
eat and two veg is supposed to be good, but i've never been. pretty much everywhere you go will have a vegetarian option, but probably not a wide range to choose from. also you must try out Indian restaurants all of which feature loads of vegetarian dishes.
it's been a few years since i was there, but i had several nice meals at blah blah blah when traveling with veggie friends and staying in shepherds bush. that said, i don't think it's worth a special trip if getting to the area isn't convenient. here's a recent time out review:
Oh, I used to LOVE Mildred's and Food For Thought when I worked in the West End. Mildred's also had really nice fresh juices. And FFT was very "communal". And Wagamama was always fun. That looks like a good list, although I haven't heard of some of those places. You won't have any problems on the vegetarian front, though. Even the groceries are plainly marked "Suitable for Vegetarians."
