Absurd Bird – Soho & Spitalfields

Inspired by Southern US fried chicken and casual food chains, Absurd Bird brings to the table a wide variety of vegan “chicken” and iconic American fast food dishes. I dined in at the Spitalfields location, to try the vegan vaffles and the vegan mac n cheese, and here are my thoughts:

Vegan Vaffles (£11.85) – This dish consists of 3 crispy vegan fillets, and 4 waffle pieces, along with vegan gravy and maple syrup. The vegan gravy was tasty! It had a very similar taste to a meat-based gravy. Some of my fillets were a little bit too crispy, making it hard to cut them up and eat them, but they were delicious nonetheless. The waffles were also scrumptious, and not soggy! I would order this again, however, I do think the price for this item is a bit steep.

Vegan Mac & Cheese (£5.80) – Now this was probably my favorite dish. The vegan mac ‘n cheese was unbelievably creamy. It also had an additional layer of melted cheese on top, adding some crisp to the texture. Although it is classed on the menu as a side, the serving size was big enough for 2 people to share. I would 100% go back for this!
