    Default Hampshire

    There's a new licensed vegetarian cafe opened in Southampton. It's called The Soul Bowl, and is housed in a blues/funk/jazz/reggae club called The Soul Cellar. It's open from 11am to 9pm for food.

    The menu is fairly short - there were 6 mains on offer, 4 of which were vegan. The food is plentiful and cheap - about £3.50 per main course.

    Yes, the wholefood shop is very good. I visit it about once a month (I visit Winchester for concerts I perform/go to) and stock up on supplies!
    The good thing, for me, is they do things ready to eat- I went yesterday, and I got a large spicy lentil thing, a few samosas and some nice cakes (always, unfortunately, much better than my attempts!)

    Certainly worth a look

    My friend at work sent me this email today (she's a very cool person, and tells me that the vegan nosh is great and clean):

    "As of next Saturday I'm going to be helping out occassionally with the
    catering at The Art House on Bedford place, opposite the Lizard Lounge
    - it's a not-for-profit arts centre with a veggie and vegan cafe that has recently been opened by some people I know. So if you're in town and you fancy a healthy lunch or some coffee & cake somewhere a bit more laid back than West Quay, then bear it in mind. They're open for coffee and lunch
    everyday except Monday and in the evening Tue, Fri and Sat.

    They also have WiFi, a vintage clothes shop and a practice space
    upstairs if your sitar-weaving group needs somewhere to meet."

    I went there today for coffee and chocolate cake. It was very nice - the choccy cake was moist and rich. The place has a bright, laid-back atmosphere with lots of artwork on display. They are still developing their range of savoury food, so I'll have to go back and investigate that another time.

    Afterwards I went and had a nose around the Psychic Allsorts Cafe which is just round the corner. It looks really shabby from the outside, but inside it's cosy and inviting. There was a group of people just about to tuck into lunch, and the food looked lovely. I'm going to give it a try next Friday. I think this might become my weekly treat, as I go diving in Southampton every Friday lunchtime.

    Hey

    I live in Southampton at the moment. Its great that you have discovered The Art House, its by far the best vegan place in the city. The food is so nice and its great how its run not for profit

    If you haven't found it yet there is a nice little health food & gift shop on Bedford Place (just past the civic centre) called Naturally Healthy. They have a big range of vegan stuff, the lady that runs it is really nice too and will stock stuff if you ask her. Also there a few other vegan places around the city such as Lush by the Bargate monument (the shop I run, blatant plug).

    I don't really know Winchester too well but I do know there is a vegan shop just off the main shopping street (they usually have an advertising board on the main street), also I know there is an ethical hairdressing salon (because they buy our henna's to use on their customers!).

    The ethical hairdressing salon in Winchester (if it's the one in Jewry Street) has unfortunately replaced the independent health food shop that used to be there.

    That only leaves Holland & Barrett for food shopping, and there aren't any veggie cafes/restaurants that I know of. A bit pants really for such an upmarket town.

    We just moved to Winchester, I don't think the wholefood shop is there any more (at least I haven't found it). There is a health store but it doesn't sell food. There is a Holland & Barrett though (with a broken freezer of course).

    Went to 'Indian Melody' in Southampton this evening, really good. The guy running the place is very enthusiastic and will tell you everything you might want to know, his enthusiasm can be a bit much though! Everything on the menu is suitable for vegetarians, nothing is marked vegan but they'll be happy to make vegan versions of whatever you want.

    As the guy told me, everything is fresh, nothing is from tins or packets and you're even encouraged to go and see your food being cooked in the open kitchen.

    Buddies Diner in Winchester does two different vegan burgers.They're not marked as vegan on the menu but if you ask the staff they have a folder with allergen information that clearly states they are vegan if served without mayonnaise. They might have other vegan stuff but we only asked about these two burgers.

    3 Bean Burger - Home made 3 bean taste sensation coated in breadcrumbs, and served with fresh salad and mayo on a lightly toasted bun. 6.75

    Roasted Veg Burger - Fire roasted portabello mushrooms, aubergines and red peppers stacked high in a toasted bun. 7.25

    I'd have to say the bean burger is the better of the two.

    Also Rimjhim in Winchester will do vegan food on request but I suggest you discuss your needs by email rather than in person because their spoken English is pretty poor.

    Hey the Art House is an excellent place for vegan food. I had a hummus based mezze (sp?) and some chocolate cake there last time i visited my folks. My mum runs origami sessions there. It's a really brilliant place based on culture for the community.

    There's going to be a new Jamie Oliver restaurant in Winchester called Union Jacks (there's already one in London). They don't seem too vegan friendly from the online menu but they could be in the new location if they new there would be demand for it in advance. If you get my drift.

    We can found organic foods every where as the demand and supply of organic foods are gradually increasing day to day basis. Everyone like your mother now conscious about their health and like to eat healthy foods which are without any pesticides and toxic. Told your mother to search in online, inquiry at the local food society, go to food malls. I think it is not a difficult tax. Hope, your mother will get the solution very soon. Don't worry my friend.

    Risker, the Jamie Oliver one ought to be vegan-friendly considering how much he goes on about it now, oughtn't it? I went to a Jamie's Italian a while ago and they claimed they had a separate menu though they couldn't actually find it - they adapted something for me though. I have tweeted them to ask, anyway.

    Jamie Olivers 'Union Jacks' have all shut down now except one in London, I never did end up actually going in since they never replied to my email and the menu didn't look all that special. I think the shops been bought by Rick Stein or someone.

    Wetherspoons, Pizza Express, and I mostly trust RimJhim but prefer to order online so there's no vocal miscommunication. As for shops, there's an eco type shop that sells a few vegan bits, a H&B, Fuzzi has temporarily closed while they find new premisis but do cheap local delivery from their website.

    Oh, there may also be a restaurant in the shopping mall that does a meal or two, not sure as it was a pop-up shop but decided to stay.

    There's a YMCA cafe that labels stuff vegan too, not tried it though.
