Tonight, while on a weekend trip to Bournemouth, we've visited the US chain Taco Bell which has made its way across the Atlantic in recent times. As you may know, missis Summer is American, and Taco Bell has a special place in many Americans' hearts.

We were very disappointed to learn that they no longer have refried beans on the menu. Oh well, we had black beans instead. It was a very OK meal, and especially the price was right :) Apparently, they'll be getting a new menu soon-ish, though, with more vegan stuff and importantly, less meat stuff!

It's been ages since I've been to a Taco Bell.

London Ontario is very vegan friendly, it's everywhere, pretty much every restaurant will have something for vegans. obviously some have more choices than others, there are many pure vegan places around.

We also have a big VegFest, not sure what's going to happen this year, it's usually around November.

@thinman, Oops, you've posted your recommendation in the UK section. You can start a thread in the following section if you wish.:)
There is a mention of Canada's very first drive thru vegan restaurant in this section.

This is exciting news as I've never seen air fried chips being served in a restaurant.

Airy Fairy
If you go down to Purezza today, you’re sure of a big surpfries.


Brand new to all Purezzas, we’ve just launched what will be your new favourite side dish. Air Fried Fries have just hit the menu, and oh-my-spud they’re good.
Gorgeous hand cut chips, all cooked with the magic of air instead of oil. The result? A crispier, fresher tasting fry, that’s almost fat free.

I was thinking that because of Covid I've only been to one vegan restaurant this year! :eek: It was this one in a coastal town in Essex.

The Oaktree Vegetarian and Vegan Restaurant

At least you do what you say!:D

A new vegan café

Moreover, Gauthier has opened a new vegan café in Fenwick’s Mayfair called 123 Vegan, offering up vegan burgers, croissants and salads to shoppers.

One menu item that has caught our attention is the Red Yuzu Bowl featuring watermelon sashimi, pineapple, wakame seaweed, spring onion, edamame, crispy shallots, yuzu sauce and sushi rice. What a dish!

Other highlights include the California Cheeseburger made with a Beyond Meat patty, vegan cheese, special sauce and all the trimmings, and the Dark Chocolate ‘Vemesis’ Cake featuring a dark chocolate fondant sponge and sour plant cream.
