Vegan stuff you recently tried

Richmond meat free rashers - very impressed by these although have only had them once. Worried they might taste weird after a few times, like a lot of this stuff. Right now though they are up there as one of the best if you like this kind of thing.

Greggs vegan sausage, beans and scheeze slice. At £1.60 this was no bargain considering the size is like half a postcard. But the sausage is actually very nice, although you only get about 4 chunks. There was a similar number of beans but we all know the best bit of beans is bean juice and there's loads of that. The fake cheese is one of the best and adds a lovely gooey-ness to the bean juice. Best eaten warm.

Pret's Houmous & Chipotle wrap. Can't knock it, loads of crunchy salad stuff including interesting pickles. Top-tier houmous and a spicy smokey edge.

At Glastonbury last weekend I had a vegan gryos that was absolutely fantastic. One of the best meals I've ever had, no lie.

I was on LSD at the time but a friend who wasn't also said it was really delicious.

All you vegan lads: Get yourself down to Glastonbury and have a gyros from The Vegan Pyramid.

It's amazing how much festival food has come along, the first time I went to bestival I had a chipati that tasted of actual vomit, I made my mate taste it to confirm and he agreed... then slapped it out of my hands when i begrudgingly attempted to get my moneys worth, and he was right to do so.

Obviously this wasn't at Glastonbury festival as that's not on this year, but the site has been opened for camping each weekend this month and they have a few festival food places on.

I did consider that but thought you might be low-key bragging about being special enough to be at the stuff they put online or something.

Had some Nurishh vegan cheese slices - Les Tranches Végétales Classiques - quite delicious, very buttery tasting.  Also Engevita Nutritional Yeast Flakes stirred into pasta gave it a really umami almost cheesy flavour.  Best of all, Bjorg Terrine Forestière Bio a most delicious vegan pâté.  Would eat again.  Will.

And of course, falafels, but they're a staple.  Where would the world be without them?  Fucked, that is where.

It was pretty sick to get to just walk inside the structure of the Pyramid Stage with barely anyone around.

Got a vegan haggis in Tesco, it was on offer. Surprisingly nice; spicey and 'umami.' Ate it over two nights with a salad accompaniment.

Unless it's vegan piss (apple juice) or vegan shit (most vegan stuff) I reckon you're in the wrong thread, pal.

Central London workers that have a job where you can't do all this new fangled "work from home" lark - Sababa Station on Goodge Street, Middle Eastern takeaway place. Grilled veg wrap with the spicy sauce. Recommended.

What was on it? Apart from the spicy sauce?

Oak tree restaurant in Leigh on Sea is excellent. Didn't ruin the meal by lobbing eggs everywhere.

I find the Richmond's stuff to be hit or miss.  Sausages - some of the best; burgers and meat free mince - average to poor.  Taste and Glory have a much higher hit rate.

The Vivera bacon pieces are my go to for yer bacon type things, I find rashers are quite hard to pull off unless you really know how to cook them so they don't go stiff and papery.

Had carrot last night. Very disappointing but think the circumstances surrounding it may have been a contributing factor.

I'm gradually getting hooked on these vegan pastrami slices. They go great in a sandwich with sauerkraut and hellman's vegan mayo.

Had a Papa John’s vegan pizza. Made with vegan “sheese”. Dreadful allergic reaction, turns out it’s made with coconut oil. Fucking hell. Seems like the decent vegan cheeses either contain coconut or cashew, neither of which will do me any good. Back to a cheeseless existence.

That sheeze stuff tastes good but the tacky texture is what lets it down. Also if it makes your throat swell up and suffocate you that’s probably not great either.

Tried the Schnitzel from Lidl last night. Pretty darn good and only about two quid for five -- perfect for a nice easy dinner.

These are amazing. Put em in a sarnie with mustard, pickles and a slice of vegan cheese and prepare to be if not blown away, very satisfied indeed.
