Features Editor, Charlotte, headed on down to the Thai Square in Trafalgar Square last week to sample their brand new vegan menu. Feeling slightly overindulged from the festive season, January is the month where we’re told to cut back, whether it be biscuits, booze or beef. Charlotte, an avid meat-eater is trying to make healthier decisions, so going vegan for an evening was a challenge in itself. Here is how she got on:
‘I eat meat daily and I’m looking to cut back so testing out a Vegan menu for dinner with a friend was going to be interesting. I can’t imagine my plate with just vegetables but I know when it comes to Thai food its all about the flavour and exciting your taste buds’.
‘The Thai Square in Trafalgar Square is beautiful in decor as well as ambience and the service is impeccable. You are greeted from the moment you walk in to when you depart the restaurant. Glazing my eyes over the vegan menu, I opted for sharing starter, the Tom Yum Hed soup and the Vegetarian Jungle Curry for my main’.
‘Each dish was absolutely fantastic, so flavourful and I couldn’t believe it was all completely vegan. My opinion has really changed and I will be visiting Thai Square much more in future!’
Perhaps it will be the next PlusMinus team meeting venue? Watch this space…
Mains are equally irresistible, spearheaded by the likes of Vegetarian Jungle Curry, a fiery blend of fried tofu, aubergines, oyster mushrooms , basil, bamboo shoots and long beans cooked with red chillies, fresh peppercorns and white ginger, and Sweet & Sour Vegetables & Tofu – broccoli, shiitake mushrooms and tofu tempura topped with sweet & sour sauce, green & red peppers, tomatoes, pineapples, spring onion & onions.
All menus are clearly labelled in the instance you have any allergies or intolerences but do check with your server if you’re unsure.
Choose from a three – course set menu at £ 30.95 per person ( starter, soup and main course based on two people sharing) or a comprehensive a la carte offering. And for the duration of Veganuary (1st – 31st January), anyone choosing the set menu will receive a complimentary mocktail!
The Vegan menu is served at served at Thai Square Trafalgar Square, Thai Square Putney, Thai Square Covent Garden, Thai Square Islington, Thai Square Minories, Thai Square Mansion House, Thai Square Richmond, Thai Square St. Albans and Thai Square Fulham.
If none of these branches are near you, do ask your server for what they recommend to try or take a look through the menu for alternatives.
