Our comments: Completely vegan food stall serving excellent pies to take away. The range changes but at the time of research consisted of Bountiful butternut curry (hunks of sweet roasted butternut with red lentils in a mild tomato & ‘creamy’ coconut curry, wrapped in shortcrust), Moorish Moroccan tagine pie (slow roasted peppers, chickpeas & fruit, cooked in tomato, chilli & roasted garlic harissa with Moroccan spices), Rendang curry pie (creamy coconut, fine beans, pepper & peanut Indonesian curry with lemongrass, tamarind & warming spices), Drunken mushroom pie (mushrooms, sautéed in garlic, with spinach & hazelnuts in a red onion & red wine gravy) and Swedey Todd pie (sundried tomatoes, lentils, roasted bell peppers, root vegetables & tomatoes with traditional Victorian herbs & spices).

The full range consists of San Francisco sourdough, walnut baton, olive baton, chia buckwheat, malted wheat & seeds, spelt, buckwheat, overnight white, caraway rye and coriander rye. Highly recommended both for being a fully vegan venture and for the quality of their bread.

Wasabi - Sushi & Noodle Bar
49 Uplands Crescent, SA2 0NP
Tel: 01792 464999

Wasabi is a bit of a hit or miss experience for vegans. Sometimes you will get great service, they will adapt dishes and you will be given advice about what is vegan. Other times they will serve you food with mayo or fish flakes on. It seems to depend on the staff at the time.
