Phew! This has been a crazy week of catching up on my life after being away in jolly ol’ England. And boy what a trip it was. From a Jay-Z & Kanye West concert to Stonehenge to a custom nail art manicure this trip was very busy and diverse. But what made this experience even more memorable was the amazing food I ate. If there is one thing that can be said about vegan chefs in London it is that they really try to translate the British food experience. It was a thrill to see Bangers & Mash and Sunday roast on the menus. The picture above is of a mushroom ale pie with mushy peas, a Brit pub classic from Mildred’s in Soho. Check out the rest of the best vegan food from my great U.K. adventure.
