The Veggie Table is about as healthy as street food gets. This delightful little green stall is located at the lovely Borough Market and staffed exclusively by people with dreadlocks and shoes made of hemp. It’s obviously all vegetarian, some of it is vegan and there’s none of that gluten gunk in sight.
I know none of that sounds particularly appetising, but please give these lovely little hippies a chance, because once you get past all the nutrients and vitamins these veggie boxes are packed with you might be very surprised! These veggie burgers, salads and toppings are actually bloody delicious, and that’s coming from someone who’s just about as carnivorous as they come.
The Veggie Table does two burger options – Superveg (GF) made with organic vegetables, quinoa, nuts, sultanas and cumin, and Halloumi, made with Halloumi cheese, organic carrots, courgettes, fresh mint & coriander. These are served with in a bun (not GF, sadly), on a leaf (bit rabbit-like for me) or with fresh salads bursting with organic grains and local veggies and topped with veggie pesto, red onion jam, salsa and hummus (by far the best option).
I went for the superveg and was so impressed I even considered becoming a vegan for three or four minutes. The salads were great, the toppings were brilliant, there were even seeds! Very satisfying, very healthy and very tasty. Give it a go.
The Verdict: Surprisingly awesome.
Gluten Free: Yes! Hooray!
