Previously Sussex residents, The Brook have flown the nest to settle in Hackney, vegan capital of London. When a new kid moves to town it’s only kind to drop by and welcome them to the neighbourhood. Simo and I headed on down to say hi, take along a fruit basket/pot plant and partake in a spot of the tasty stuff.
The decor is supercool yet the place has such a chilled out and friendly atmosphere. The weekend was looming and you’ve gotta kick it off in the right way so obvs cocktails happened…
I had a XOCOLATL – reposado tequila, coffee tequila liqueur, liquid chocolate, cayenne pepper & chilli – a cheeky mix of my all time favourite things – and it was spot on. Also, so many bonus points for the steel straws guys!
The menu was a tapas situation so we ordered a few dishes. Most of which were recommended by the super friendly waitress. Here’s the low down:
Honestly, we both could have happily sat there all night summoning dish after dish like greedy little emperors.
I know, I know… there are tons of places to eat vegan in Hackney but I definitely recommend putting that 600th Temple Burger on hold to check this place out!
