Vegan food I want to eat

Apparently it’s a vegan week for us on this blog (that’s because on Tuesday I posted about El Capo’s vegan menu, read about that here). Sadly, Tuesday’s post (meaning Thursday’s food) didn’t go so well, but here I am to share vegan food that I actually want to eat (even though I’m not vegan myself!). Let’s talk about our experience at Vrev.


Vegan food at Vrev, Northern Quarter. Manchester

Left: pesto fries. Right: Mozzarella sticks.

First of all, I want to clarify I have nothing against vegan food, but I like to judge it against all of the other meals I’ve had in the past (not just the plant-based ones). I don’t want to recommend a vegan dish just because it’s good for being vegan, I want food to be amazing. Period. And that’s what I’m going to talk about now.

These mozzarella sticks were even better than the real deal, and I’m saying that to voice my opinion and Gabs opinion as well. We’re both massive cheese lovers and we devoured these in a second. The texture on the outside was absolutely amazing, and the melted filling was to-die-for. Two thumbs up from us!

Regarding the pesto fries, I was very curious and excited because I love both pesto AND fries, so what’s not to love about this combo!? The pesto mayo was delicious, and the crispy onions were like the cherry on top. I’d definitely have these again on my next visit.

Guys, if someone would have told me that this hot dog was just ‘a regular hot dog’ I’d have believed them any second. It tasted like an usual hot dog (I seriously don’t know how they did it!) and the toppings were unreal. The smashed avocado and the chipotle were my favourite parts, but every bite was full of flavour, so I’d recommend this dawg in a second.

Now for the burger, I can’t say this chckn tasted like chicken, but it was still amazing. The crispy breading was absolutely perfect, and every mouthful was so full of flavour, I just can’t believe how insanely good all of these dishes were!


Sadly, the cheesecake we ordered didn’t live up to my expectations, but I’m definitely willing to give the ice cream sandwich and their milkshakes a go next time I pay VREV a visit (you can bet I’m coming back!).

If you like your cheesecake soft, then theirs might be for you, it was just not for me!


Overall, our experience at VREV exceeded my expectations in the best way possible (again, all of this might be because of our less-than-ideal experience last Thursday). If you’re vegan, if you’re not vegan, if you’re doing a plant-based diet for a day, or even if you just love food (🙋🏻) you should definitely give VREV a go! Just make sure to book in advance through their website, specially if you’re going on a weekend.

One last thing, and this time I have a favour to ask: we want to introduce a day of plant-based foods to our routine and I’m looking for some quick, easy and delicious recipes to try, if you have any recipes, websites, influencers, youtubers, etc. to recommend, leave me a comment down below! It’d be greatly appreciated.

That’s it for today! Thanks for reading me 🙂

      Same, Elaine! I’m not vegan either but can definitely appreciate good plant-based food
