The ‘Vegwell‘ tasting menu at Tredwells is one of the best – and only – plant based tasting menus in London. The five-course menu showcases the very best quality seasonal British produce, Healthista Eats columnist and editor Anna Magee had to try it out themselves
Tredwells restaurant in Seven Dials, Covent Garden – AA’s London restaurant of the year.
What’s hot & healthy on the menu?
The new five-course plant based tasting menu created by award winning chef Marcus Wareing and Chef Patron Chantelle Nicholson.
As well as having the prestige of a chef like Marcus Wareing running the show to create this sumptuous and decedent veggie splendor, the restaurant prides itself on only using the best quality, locally sourced, seasonal home grown British produce – meaning you get much more nutritional quality, great taste and help support sustainability.
How did it taste?
The whole menu from starter to pudding was presented beautifully and tasted delicious. The portions are small and light (which is nice as you don’t leave feeling bloated and heavy like a lot of veggie meals you eat out can often just be big dishes overloaded with grains and pulses) yet bursting with an array of delicate flavours.
What’s not to miss?
You may think you won’t need it, but if they have it on the menu by the time you visit, do order the side of broccoli with Asian sauce & toasted almonds as it’s very moreish.
To drink, keep it local and try the British sparkling wine from Kent, and don’t even think of saying no to the pudding. The vegan dark chocolate mousse with orange will leave you grinning for days.
There is actually a new menu launching soon including these dishes below:
- Pea salsa tortellini, smoked pea velouté, lemon
- Asparagus, tahini verde, miso aioli
- Chickpea pancake, spring vegetables, sambal
- Rhubarb & custard
- Dark chocolate mousse
Who is it great for?
Those looking for a more luxurious and premium fine dining, healthy and vegan friendly food experience. Ideal for impressing a plant based date. Good for romantic nights out, a special occasion, or for a business meeting.
What dietary needs can be catered for?
Vegan/dairy-free, plant based, wheat & gluten-free (please ask for changes to be made – as spelt is used in one dish). As the dishes are light and portions small, it’s good for those looking to manage a low calorie diet.
Glam and heels, or smart casual.
