Drawing inspiration from Italian cuisine, we are starting the new year with invigorating and cleansing ingredients
Although its origins are unknown, Gremolata has a key place in Italian cuisine. It is a chopped herb condiment classically made of lemon zest, garlic and parsley and is traditionally an accompaniment to Osso Bucco alla Millanese.
HOWEVER ... as we are an all plant-based restaurant, we have used this gorgeous combination to accompany freshly seared asparagus - our starter - Seared Asparagus with Gremolata and Lemon. So you get the antibacterial and rich antioxidants of the parsley and lemon along with the well documented medicinal properties of garlic. Amplify this with the high antioxidants, including vitamin C and E of the asparagus.
What a great way to kick start the year!
Now that Christmas and New Year Celebrations are over, it’s time to put that New Year’s resolution into practice – Change to a plant-based diet.
Whatever your reasons - to lose weight, to prevent, halt or reverse disease, to be kinder to animals and the environment,or to just live longer – to get maximum benefit it must be a lifestyle change not just a temporary diet.
Lots of thoughts will be going through your mind....
“I don’t know where to start”
“I’m going to miss meat”
“I’ll never be able to eat out again!”
Well you can!
Here at Veginity, we believe that good food doesn't have to cost you the earth and we want people to experience what good plant-based food tastes like.
That's why we offer a fixed priced menu for our early bird sitting. We have offered it to our customers since opening here at Dorset Street Upper, Dublin as a way to give people, who may not be able to afford the full throws of fine dining, an opportunity to experience good plant-based food at affordable prices. And, to experience the type of dishes that you are never going to make at home yourself.
We are honoring the Chinese New Year, and welcoming the Year of the Rat - with a our Chinese Inspired menu. It will be available though out the Chinese New Year celebration period from 22 January to 9 February 2020.
Did you know that in Chinese culture, rats were seen as a sign of wealth and surplus. Because of their reproduction rate, married couples also prayed to them for children! And people born in the year of the rat (1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020) are said to be optimistic and energetic:)
After winning The Food Awards Ireland in the Best Street Food category in 2016 and 2018, we are pleased to announce that we have once again made it into the finals.
This year we have made it into the finals in two categories, Best Street Food and Best Vegetarian Establishment. To add to this, we are also thrilled that our other vegan venture Vish.Shop, was also nominated in the same two categories.
From this week, Wednesday 18th September, we are extending our opening hours!
So now it will be easier for you to grab one of Sara's famous vegan pastries and a Full Circle ethical coffee to start your day.
We hope to see you soon.
