After tackling the vegan burger, Hank Restaurant try their hand at vegan pizzas.
They promised they would and at last, Hank Restaurant have opened their 100% vegan pizza joint. Their vegan burgers were convincing (despite the slightly disappointing cheese, also known as 'fauxmage') and the pizzas were just as credible.
The red frontage is an enticing invitation into this vegan voyage – and far more spacious than the nearby Hank Burger. The cosy décor is spread over two floors – think seventies-style duck egg blue couches, trendy lights and tiled laminate flooring. To takeaway seems a real shame.
Prices are wallet-friendly too. €13 gets you two slices of pizza, a drink and a dessert (or a salad). À la carte, slices are €5 so make sure to sample several of the mouth-watering pizzas on display. If you, like us, thought a decent pizza is nothing without good cheese, think again. Hank’s sauces and creamy toppings do the job marvellously.
For the less adventurous, the sublime tomato pizza (tomato sauce, fresh tomatoes, smoked salt, vegan ricotta, basil and pine nuts) is the perfect introduction to vegan cuisine. More daring diners should order the intensely flavourful truffle pizza (potatoes, rocket, truffle cream, mushrooms and nuts). Our only complaint? Slices were served disappointingly lukewarm. The desserts, however, were the dream finale to this vegan feast; 100% organic sorbet, gooey cookies and chocolate mousse that tasted like actual chocolate.
