    This sounds like a good place for nice unhealthy food will have to try at some stage!

    Cant get website to work to find out where it is?

    Do you know where Govindas is (Govindas is on Soho Street, just off of Oxford Street near Tottenham Crt Rd Station (opposite side of road to Zavvis))?

    Basically, go past Govindas, walk through the Square (Soho Square) and come out the other side- the street is Greek Street and it's just down there

    Oxford Street is the world's busiest high street, but on that map it looks totally deserted! Bizarre.

    Thanks I know roughly where Greek St and Soho square are so could find it if needed. Im another person who can get lost trying to find Beatroot, yet can always find Red Vege, come to think of it It takes me ages to find Glasshouse stores from Piccadilly tube - that place always throws me

    for GS: exit 1 from the tube, straight ahead, turn right onto brewer street. Simplest way.

    That sounds very easy to follow - why I get so lost I dont know - I usually end up round the back of the Trocedero or Strand Palace hotel

    Beatroot is easy to find, since it's right by all the dodgy porn cinemas in Soho. Oops.

    I'll assume you mean the regent palace hotel? strand palace hotel is nearly 1/2 mile away!

    it's where the Tai buffet in Greek Street used to be (behind Soho Square). Pretty much the only place in Soho i can ever find without getting horribly confused.

    I intended to try out all the different eateries in London one by one, but got permanently distracted by the absolutely gorgeous burgers in Eat & Two Veg. Nothing's been able to tempt me away yet, some of the food in other restaurants looks a bit posh for me .
    Oh, peking palace was nice (I tried it there before going to E&2V)

    BlackCats, is the quarter pounder at V&M any good?

    ^ Yes it was nice, the quarterpounder is hard to eat though as it is quite big, but I managed to do it.

    I am going to try Eat and 2 Veg next month (and Peking Palace this Friday.)

    I must try eat and 2 vege sometime, I love the lunch buffet at 222 but never tend to be that side of London (and Its another place Ive got lost finding in the past)

    small (and probably dumb) question.

    is all the food and drink at Rootmaster vegan? i can't actually find the word 'vegan' anywhere on their website (apart from the ads) but have read the odd comment online that it's a vegan restaurant.

    I noticed that too (thought it was quite strange it didn't mention it on their website) but asked the first few times I went there and was assured it was vegan. Actually, the first time I went there I asked to see a menu and the server who handed it to me said, almost like a warning, "Just telling you, it's all vegan--no meat, eggs, or dairy... Is that okay with you?" I was just like "Well yeah, since I'm vegan." But you can always ask to double check (and ask them why it's not on their website).

    I suspect that they think using the dreaded V-word might scare people away. Methinks it be a business strategy.

    Beat me to it. I've actually been there when people have turned away upon hearing it's 'Vegan'. Like, OMG, no meat??!!! I'm gonna die!

    But yeah, everything is Vegan (and scrumptious).

    I've seen that too. People will spot the bus and come over to take pictures because they think it's cool there's a restaurant on a bus, and then they'll ask for a table but upon being told it's vegan they'll leave! Silly because they're missing out on some delicious food!

    thanks guys, i figured it must be some sort of plan not to actually mention the word 'vegan' for fear of putting people off. that sounds like the Tai buffets where i've seen people walk out upon finding out it's all vegan

    I went to Vita Organic last Thurs and wandered if I might be near some other VF people I know in a virtual way, but not in a real way. I went with a fairly carnivorous Italian friend, who likes raw food, and she enjoyed it too.
    Been to London twice in the past two weeks; probably won't go there again for months now.
    Last time, went to 222 and thought it was just amazing. Wish there was a place like that near us.

    Yeah, it's kinda like ice cream, ice cream, or disappointingly light fruit crumble. I've only had dessert a couple of times.

    ha ha no probs
    on brick lane there is the kebab shop (forget what it's called though) and in hoxton not too far away there is a really posh kebab place that I recall having a few vegan options then there are loads of little veggie cafés that are vegan savvy too.

    Yes, I vote Alison should organise it, given as she doesn't even live in London. (I'm too scared of starting a meet-up thread and no one turning up.)

    Peking Palace was again delicious tonight, my omni brother scoffed the lot. He said that if he was really drunk he wouldn't have really noticed that it wasn't meat. They had these fake prawns/shrimp which were far too realistic looking for me.
