Eating out as a vegan need not be a daunting task. At least that's what I discovered when I was treated to a surprise dinner at Shaka Zulu restaurant in Camden, London.
The South African restaurant is absolutely gorgeous. If you're looking for somewhere a little unusual and exotic, then this is the place for you.
Now, let's talk menu. One look at the card placed before me and I froze a little. Here, ladies and gentlemen, was 'candyland' for meat eaters.
A scan through later, however, and I was relieved to find a couple of veggie options. The staff were so lovely too and the chef actually prepared some delicious veggie samosas for my starter (sorry, forgot to take a pic as I pretty much wolfed them down). For mains, I went for the 'Vegetable Potjie' - a simple dish of maize meal rice (dotted with raisins) and chunky tomato and green bean sauce. Not bad at all!
If you've got any interesting 'eating out as a vegan' stories then I'd love to hear them!
