An Unlikely Find

So it always seems to be the restaurants that I would usually try to avoid that often come to hold the most vegan surprises and today was another instance where I shouldn't judge a book by it's cover.  While in Dublin for the day we took a chance and walked into Nandos and were pleasantly surprised by their range of vegan options.

While at first glance the menu screams 'Peri Peri Chicken', it is in fact littered with vege options.  Not sure which ones were vegan, I asked the waitress who came back with a funky tomb of a book on all the menu options, listing each one on a different page with, among other things, whether or not the dish is vegan, vegetarian or coeilac - they even did the same with all of their sauces and marinades - my stars!

As it turns out most of their starters are vegan, they have a great looking couscous salad and have a spicy soya and tomato burger patty in wrap and pita that, without the mayo, are completely vegan.  Super impressed I ordered said Veggie Pita and was not disappointed.  I would definitely suggest you give it a whirl!  And if you are into spicy, melt-your-face-off-sauces, this is the place for you!
