For so long, I've been complaining about how England can't do Mexican food: they don't understand spicy food, you can't get good avocados here, and there's a dearth of Mexican immigrants. But an all-vegan market stall called Club Mexicana proved me wrong! Club Mexicana pops up at the various markets in London, including Spitalfields and King's Cross. And this month, they've taken over the Hornbeam Cafe in...super northeast London to host fantastic Friday night dinners. (I mean dinner on Friday nights, not Shabbat-style 'Friday night dinners'.) If you have a chance to get to god knows where I went last week (Walthamstow...shire?) any Friday this month, then you must go! They have loaded nachos, tacos, burritos, empanadas, and more. Most importantly, their signature dish is pulled jackfruit, the coolest vegan meat substitute ever.
I go out to eat often, in many different cities. I'm usually with a crowd of omnivores, so look here for tips on how to eat vegan at many non-vegan places. But primarily this section of the blog is a shrine to the fantastic and ever-increasing vegan restaurants in the world.
