After a trip to a £1 vintage market in Mile End, then searching for some vegan lunch in Greenwich, I am very aware I suddenly fit into a niche. I have never been part of a niche, nor sounded like ‘that person’ before.
But here. I. am.
And it was great fun.
So three of us went on a trip to get food. A real vegan human, a veggie/vegan human and a full on meat eating/banterful/but isn’t against eating vegan food human.
We bought pizzas from a place called Little Leaf Food. It was only £6 per pizza, then 50p per extra topping – which I thought was a wicked price. We also bought vegan cookies which were £2.20 each, so you know which one is better for money.
I forgot to document my pizza before eating it, because it was THAT DAMN GOOD, but I had a ‘red pizza’ which was a tomato base with cheese. Then I had sun dried tomatoes on top – YUMYUM – then pesto and chili oil. £6.50.
My friend, Rods, had the same base with onion and pepperoni. MY GOD, the pepperoni was sooo good! How do they do it?! Mine was also amazing. Nice crispy base, all deliciousness and moreish.
They do two other bases too and other than pesto being part of one, I can’t remember anything else. They all looked the bomb though. (Do people say ‘the bomb’ anymore?)
The lady and gentleman cooking the pizzas were really nice, James asked them all sorts of questions – because he enjoys talking to strangers – while I just threw in awkward remarks that I think are funny. The usual.
I will go back. Just for the pizza. (James will go back just to talk to them probably.)
Rubys of London was the vegan patisserie. Like I said, the vegan cookies were pretty pricey in my opinion. We turned up to the stall at about.. say, 2/3pm and everything had pretty much gone. So their food must be good.
(My God I just went on their website and their donuts look like heaven…)
There was some bounty cupcakes left, and three types of cookies. We bought the chocolate one and peanut butter and raspberry one.
I wasn’t too keen on the chocolate one but thought the peanut butter one was delicious! James’s opinion was exactly the opposite. It must be our personal preferences – we think the peanut butter one must have been made with coconut flour, James hates coconut, and I get bored with just chocolate.
So I really, REALLY want to try some of their other goodies. It’s just a shame I’m poor. I mean, I shouldn’t even be buying these bits – I should just be living on tinned beans and any markdowns supermarkets have on the day.
Anyway, that’s my brief and ill-educated review of my vegan goodies from Greenwich market. I recommend if you’re in the area.
