Nourishing Quarter (CLOSED)

So you can't eat gluten? Nourishing Quarter has you covered
This vegan restaurant on Cleveland Street is a bit of a kook. The room has a vintage Royal Britannia theme that is very into the early reign of Queen Elizabeth II. There’s a mannequin in a ‘50s dress, retro crockery cabinets, and an allsorts collection of wooden dining chairs in various states of wear and tear. Aside from a nostalgia for a “simpler time” we’re not too sure what this has to do with a plant-based diet, but whatever you think of the décor, they’ve got the right idea in the kitchen. The pretty dumplings are a stand out – silky thin wrappers washed in a light soy sauce and filled with tofu, black mushrooms and carrot and scattered with dried chilli. The ancient pearls is the house take on sang choy bow. A rubble of eggplant, carrot, green beans and bean shoots is cupped in a perfectly shaped lettuce leaf, which makes for messy but tasty eating. Don’t be afraid to slap on the chilli sauce – it’s a mild version that’s more flavour than heat.
