Our comments: Highly recommended vegan food stall serving excellent food to take away. The dishes on offer change but examples include: Moorish Moroccan tagine pie, roast pumpkin & red lentil curry pie, drunken mushroom pie, caramelised beetroot & onion pie and rendang curry pie. They usually have a gluten and wheat free option. Vegans who have sampled the food have been highly impressed and obviously it is always good to support a vegan business.

Location:
The market is on the street in Gwydr Square, Uplands.

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.

Our comments: Explain that you are vegan on ordering or ensure there is a bit more choice by pre-booking. The Nut roast main is vegan and there will be a suitable starter. They can also do a nice vegan Sunday dinner, but again advance notice is probably a good idea.

Wasabi - Sushi & Noodle Bar

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.
