David Bann's Vegetarian Restaurant

Feature by Libby Brown | 15 Jul 2006

No trace of a lentil nor a beanburger in sight at this stylish vegetarian eatery. With a carefully selected menu of unusual combinations to tantalise the taste buds and broaden the palette of both the most seasoned vegetarian and experimental carnivores. The menu boasts a wide selection of starters with unique variations on traditional ideas, such as roast sweet potato and goats cheese or grilled parmesan and basil polenta served with an olive tapenade and beetroot salad. Main courses are a filling affair with complex combinations such as gallette of aduki and aubergine served with melt-in-the-mouth chips and tangy lime mayo. Another favourite was Dosa, vegetable curry served with yoghurt and sweet banana chutney wrapped in a crepe. The ideas on the menu are exciting although this can mean that sometimes the flavours and tastes do battle for your attention. This small issue aside however, Bann's offers excellent veggie cuisine at reasonable prices served in a sophisticated space.
