To celebrate going fully vegan, Lele’s London invited us down to try their new menu and of course we were only too happy.
Lele’s was perfectly warm both in temperature and atmosphere. We took a seat at a cute mismatched table and chair combo and ordered brunch.
Oh. My. Cocoa nibs. It was absolutely crackin’. The flavours were contrasting yet harmonious like a Linkin Park & Jay-Z banger. Fresh Toast, Tart Raspberries vs. Sweet Syrup & Coconut Cream ft. Savoury Peanut Butter. Officially my Essential mix of 2017. The best French Toast I’ve eaten – vegan or otherwise!
According to Ludz, it was his favourite vegan breakfast yet. I had a sneaky bite too and true enough it was damn amazing. The sausage was a tasty little beast with a frankfurter flavour and texture. I’m pretty attached to my baked beans so I’m not usually of a fan of fancy variations, but they were spiced little wonders. The various other bits were also 👌
A vegan birdie told me that the raspberry biscuit had just sold out at Broadway Vegan Market so thought I’d take one home for Simo.
His verdict? ‘The biscuit of dreams’. Clearly there’s a good reason why these bad boys are hastily snapped up!
I chatted with Lele’s super sweet owner Valentina who explained that since personally switching to veganism she’d felt hypocritical cooking with animal based products. The goal of Lele’s became about being part of a positive change and inspiring others with killer food.
It’s always amazing to see someone so excited about vegan food and it really shone through in the delectable delights on offer.
Can I get an encore?
