This will be a different kind of review for Veggie Republic, mainly because we’ve been there three times so far and only now I’m talking about them on my blog. So, I will include, at the end of the post, two pictures from the other two times we’ve been there and where you can find them, if you fancy a meal. Just to let you know, they are doing the awesome government initiative Eat Out to Help Out. We are booked at Veggie Republic for dinner next week and I can’t wait!
Before talking about the food, I should talk a bit about them. It’s a vegan restaurant with an amazing array of different dishes. While I did not think that I will go out after the lockdown restrictions were eased, I was wrong. I’ve been to the Cat Cafe and Veggie Republic and I booked for each week of August somewhere. Seeing how everything works, I consider restaurants and cafes to be safer than supermarkets or shops, with easy to follow social distancing rules and they also clean after each customer had their meal. So, I’m prepared for a fantastic month ahead, with delicious food. With the exception of Cat Cafe, all the others are vegan or vegetarian establishments, because these are the places I want to support with my hard-earned cash (contactless doesn’t have the same ring to it).
I ordered fish and chips. It’s the second time I order it because I just love the taste. The fish is banana blossom and it has a very fish-like texture. The taste is gorgeous. It comes with chips, sauce, and delicious mushy peas with mint. I would gladly eat this again, but I think I will try something else next week, as I want to sample more of their dishes.
My husband went for Gyro pizza. He had gyro before, a kind of fake meat, and he loved it. I had a slice of pizza from him and I can easily understand why. It’s so good. We would buy this if it was available in the supermarket.
The food arrived fast and it was so good. We were not sure if we should get desserts, as in the previous two times we were too full for desserts. This time we made sure we didn’t snack after breakfast, so we asked for desserts too.
I picked the salted caramel cake and that was delicious, very moist and the cream was so flavoursome. It came with whipped cream and chocolate sauce. I would have this again, that’s for sure.
My husband decided to try the New York Cheesecake and it was very good. We’ve sampled each other’s dishes as we always do and I’ve enjoyed the smooth texture of the cheesecake. You wouldn’t say it’s not actual cheese. I loved it.
On the January meal, when I’ve had a celebration of my 12 years of vegetarianism, I had fish and chips and my husband had a hot dog. Both were really nice, although we might not order the hot dog again, just because their other dishes are even more delicious.
October meal, a surprise from my husband, for our anniversary (we have a few of those): burger for me and Gyro wrap for my husband. Both dishes were so good and this is why we keep going for meals there again and again.
Veggie Republic is at 16 Cook St, L2 9RF, Liverpool. You can chat with them and also book over their Facebook page. They are located in the city centre, so on-street parking is not widely available. There are some multi-storey car parks nearby and it’s much better to park there. If you are using public transport, then is close to many bus stops.
