Today, guest blogger Gloria Chung talks us through her meal with a friend at King's Cross vegan restaurant Itadaki Zen.
Not only is the food at Itadakizen in Kings Cross good for your health with its all-vegan menu and the fresh, organic produce they use, their dishes (ranging from bento boxes to tofu cheesecakes) make it vegan heaven for Asian food lovers. They also do organic vegan wines, beers and ciders.
The menu is simple and includes set menus, bento boxes, side dishes and desserts. They also do a cheap lunch menu which is perfect for students and people who work in the area. We tried the classic sushi bento box that came with fresh salad, tempura, spring rolls, sushi with brown rice and a miso soup.
We also ordered the tempura set that came with mixed grain rice. The ingredients were obviously very high quality and fresh, and portions were just the right amount and left us content and satisfied.
We couldn’t help but order dessert, of course. We had their special which was the apple pie and their small cake which was made of Kabocha (Japanese pumpkin) topped with tofu and vanilla cream.
Itadakizen is just a short walk away from Kings Cross Station.
Their set menus range from £13 - 30 (the higher end are set menus for two). Their sides £3 -10. Desserts around £4 (they offer a special birthday cake for £16 if you order in advance). Their lunchtime bento box is £10.
