I just got back from a quick visit to London and want to give a shout out to Mildred's Restaurant . I met up with some very special family members for a late mid week lunch at their Soho location (45 Lexington Street). This was my first trip to London since I became vegan so I had never eaten at Mildred's before and was utterly delighted to find this wonderful restaurant.
We were seated at a table in one of their upstairs dining rooms and were served by a wonderful patient waiter. My beyond adorable and curious eighteen month old grand-niece insisted on exploring all the dining rooms and making new friends with the staff and customers. I loved this light filled private dining room and chuckled at the vegan take on the deer head wall mount.
I ordered the Detox Salad to start and our table ordered a number of vegetarian appetizers. My main course was the delicious Sri Lankan Sweet Potato and Green Bean Curry with roasted lime cashews, pea basmati rice and coconut tomato sambal. My fellow diners loved the Polish Beetroot Burgers and fries.
Desert was oh so decadent but knowing we would walk several more miles that day justified our order. I had the raw chocolate truffle cake with almond and date crust and fresh strawberries and I also had a taste of the salted caramel macadamia nut truffles. Being a chocolate lover I was in heaven but it was very rich so I was happy to share.
I highly recommend Mildred's to anyone in London and look forward to going back and working my way through the menu.
