Riverside Deli Gisburn Road Barrowford 11th July 2018

Riverside Deli is a newly opened vegan and vegetarian deli, in the village of Barrowford, not far from Burnley.   They sell various food items, as well as takeaway sandwiches, stews, soups and cakes which change on a daily basis.



I called in with Steven on a beautiful sunny Wednesday for a sandwich and cake, to have lunch in the lovely park right across the road. 


Riverside Deli is only small, but there was a constant stream of people coming in for various items, just shows how popular vegan food is, especially as Barrowford is thin on the ground where vegan is concerned.






I ordered jackfruit wrap loaded with salad, spiralised courgettes and houmous and I could not resist a coconut cupcake, after spotting them in the chiller cabinet. 





Steven ordered a tofu wrap, filled with lots of salad, houmous and chilli sauce and a chocolate ginger slice to finish.



The wraps were a good sized portion with plenty filling, packed with flavour and we both said they were the best vegan sandwich we have eaten in a long time.   We love to support independents and the wraps put to shame any you can purchase in one of the chains.   The cakes were equally impressive, moist and delicious with their individual flavours shining through, we were sorry to finish them they were that good.

What a great addition Riverside Deli is to Barrowford and how lucky are the residents to have it on their doorstep, if I lived there I would be unable to keep away.   We will definitely make the journey to revisit.
