Hendersons Vegan Restaurant Thistle Street Edinburgh 22nd July 2016

A trip to Edinburgh, had to include a visit to Hendersons Vegan, after reading great reviews, as Hendersons is an institution in the city, with four locations to choose from.

Hendersons vegan restaurant, is just round the corner from their shop and deli and looks very attractive and inviting.

We were shown to our table and perused the menu, with numerous choices for each course, which all sounded excellent.

I chose an Emiliana Organic Vineyards Adobe Sauvignon Blanc,  I love Emilana wines and always look out for them on wine lists.

I chose grilled polenta wedges with sweet chilli dip and my husband ordered fig and olive tapenade with pine nuts, apple chutney and oatcakes, both were very tasty dishes and we left clean plates.

Mains were spiralised squash and courgette zoodles, with dukkah and curried coconut sauce and tofu teriyaki, with coconut brown rice, greens beans and pineapple salsa.   The dishes were well presented, using fresh ingredients and very tasty.

We shared dessert, a lemon and thyme cheesecake, with coconut whipped cream, a perfect, light tasty finish to our dinner.

We had a chat with our young waiter Connor, who had been vegan for four months, was very friendly and helpful, recommending the excellent Whistle Binkies bar, for an after dinner drink.   I would recommend Hendersons Vegan and look forward to returning sometime in the future.
