I am always seeing delicious by Chloe dishes through my Instagram feed. I got the opportunity to go into the cafe in Covent Garden last week with one of my friends who is called Chloe, and I loved it! It was very popular in there with people getting take away and also sitting in. It is great how all of their packaging is eco-friendly. I am so glad Chloe took me along and shared the experience with her. I don’t usually get to go to fully vegan restaurants so this was a great experience for me.

The only problem was, I was extremely spoilt for choice and we both spent a while dithering over what to get - many people had to pass us in the queue. All of the food sounded delicious, wholesome and satisfying - I love how their menu uses locally-sourced ingredients and everything is freshly prepared in their kitchen.

I wasn’t expecting to be given a buzzer to be alerted when my food was ready. It was prepared very quickly so luckily we were able to find a small table and didn’t have to wait long to eat.

Chloe persuaded me to get the Pesto Meatball with was Talian Meatball (Portobelo + veggie), marinara, sweet peppers, basil pesto, cashew mozz, almond parm in a potato sub roll. I also brought me and Chloe a leafy brownie to share for dessert.

I loved my meal; it was fun, hearty, nourishing with an amazing combination of flavours and colour. The brownie was so gooie and not dry at all - it was hard to believe it was vegan. The food definitely had a positive impact on my mindset for the rest of the day. I also loved the little illustrations on the paper that came in the tray and was printed onto my paper plate under my brownie.

The space had a buzz to it and the London twist was also present in the decor – the restaurant features instagrammable, “guac save the queen” pink neon light on the wall and also, “YASS QUEEN” on the bathroom mirror, appealing to their largely millennial audience; these small touches put a smile on my face.

I really want to go back and try something else from the menu. I like the sound of the guac burger, avocado pesto pasta, the quinoa taco salad bowl and especially the sticky toffee pudding with coconut whipped cream. The cookies also looked divine.
