Vegan Dinner Date #1 // Brasco Lounge

Hello Spookies! When I got accepted onto my Masters Degree course, Freddie took me for dinner to celebrate (I'm a lucky gal) and it was over dinner here, whilst chatting about his newfangled blog, that we came up with the idea for a collaborative blog series. So, here it is - Vegan Dinner Date - where Freddie and I each do a post about our experience at wherever we've had vegan food! Without further ado, here's the first post, all about the vegan food at Brasco Lounge.

 

Brasco Lounge is in both in plain sight but tucked away on the docks of Liverpool, with a lovely view of the canals and the museum. When you walk in, it's a wonderland of quirky art, mirrors and rustic candles. I loved it right away. We'd picked here knowing they had a whole vegan menu which looked amazing. Even better, the meals containing nuts were all labelled clearly. This basically meant the place already had a 10/10 from me as I was saved from the painfully awkward explaining and making the staff check the allergy book and being looked at like I have 3 heads palaver that happens fairly often when I eat out. I could order my food without asking any questions. A miracle, truly. 

As if it couldn't get any better, the vegan breakfast is served all day. Which meant I was 100% going to get a vegan breakfast at 7 o'clock at night. If you know me, you know how I feel about hash browns. I simply cannot resist. So we ordered our food and drinks at the bar, and the staff were so friendly and lovely. 


Our food arrived fairly quickly and oh my, was it wonderful. It looked delicious, smelled delicious, and tasted delicious. The mushrooms were so beautifully seasoned - Freddie and I are determined to work out how to make them like that ourselves! The falafels were crispy and tasty and frankly, divine. I also really loved the red pepper and spinach - it's one of my favourite combinations at home but the taste of this was on another level. Basically, everything on the plate was perfect. I don't even need to discuss the hash browns.


We then ordered a pudding to share as we were both pretty full and I'm glad we only got one. The Dark Chocolate and Ginger Torte tasted marvelous, but was very very very rich. I may have ended up mainly eating the base and making Freddie eat most of the chocolatey part. Don't get me wrong, it was yummy in every way but I was just way too full of amazing food.
