Vegan Culinary Delights: W Hotel London


With more and more people adopting vegan plant based diet and especially being dedicated to Veganism, W hotel showcased their Veganuary menu in style. Head Chef Rohan Almeida said that “ hotel has been getting very good feedback from diners after trying the vegan dishes we have had on our menu, it inspired me to celebrate the vegan month of January by curating a special three course vegan menu.” A feature by FnB columnist Riccha Grrover for Asian Lite International.

The menu consisted of a starter of spiced tofu marinated in gochujang seasoning served with coriander chilli pesto and coconut yogurt. This was a very light and smooth starter to get started with the meal experience.

For mains there was a choice of aubergine quinoa chickpea ragu which is one of their zero waste dish that was served with tempura courgette flower and a caper with tomato salsa- this dish was a balance of texture, colours and taste.

The other mains option they were serving was redefine meat burger, a burger which was plant base severed with avocado chilli, harissa slaw and sweet potato fries. It gave the feel of having a regular burger but with vegan goodness! 

Both the mains were very delicious and full of culinary finesse.

To finish off the vegan meal W hotel london menu had a showstopper dessert that looked like an apple but which they titled “not an apple”. This was a colourful, tasty and a very light dessert that can surely inspire many to turn vegan! It was a delicious apple crumble with the notes of coconut, cinnamon to add layers of flavour and depth to it .

The service was impeccable, the presentation impressive, portion sizes were generous and taste was outstanding! This vegan meal was surely an amazing one, and one to remember!
